The Retreat at Legacy Park in Orlando
How about coming home to a "FANTASTIC," high end Executive Villa after a tiring day at the theme parks, or after a round of golf on one of the many championship golf courses in the area, or maybe picking up your latest pair of Nike trainers or Levis at the shopping mall?
South Palms is ideally located just off the US27 which is 10-15 minutes away from all the Disney Theme parks and about 25 minutes away from Sea World and Universal Studios. There is an abundance of restaurants to cater for all tastes only minutes away on the 192 along with as many discount shops as you can imagine. The nearest supermarket is Publix's at the Berry Town Centre which is literally 1/2 mile away and here you'll also find a pizza parlour and a chinese takeaway (that delivers). For those that enjoy the mega stores, a brand new Walmart Supercenter has just opened about 5 minutes away, 1 1/2 miles north of Legacy Park on the US27, where just about everything imaginable is on offer for sale.
Probably like you, we too have hectic jobs and there's nothing more we enjoy than sitting by your own personal heated swimming pool with your very own executive raised spa at the end of the day with work a million miles away. There's also the option to have the heating on in the spa that adds to the relaxation ... but watch those bubbles!
Dining Al Fresco on your own extended deck eating what "you" want when "you" want to, no waiting in line at the restaurant. Chilled in your favourite pair of shorts and shirt with your favourite drink in hand enjoying the balmy Florida evening sunshine.
Or maybe relaxing with a book in your own home that has 2600 square feet of space as opposed to a small hotel room where you have to sit on the end of the bed. And when you are eventually ready for bed, having four separate bedrooms with three bathrooms to choose from. Two en-suite Master Suites and two twin bedrooms with separate third bathroom in between, absolutely ideal for two families to share and still have enough space to move ........ or even one family that wish to take Grandma and Grandpa.
As well as all the above, our two-storey home has many optional extras that we have personally selected. These can be found in the Family Room, Formal Living Room, Formal Dining Room, Gourmet Kitchen. There's also the finished Garage with some great "additions" to keep everyone occupied including a genuine 8 foot Olhausen pool table with all the accessories.
The home has been furnished to the very highest standard and to assist us in this process we engaged the help of a senior interior design consultant from one of central Florida's leading company's.
All linens and bedding, including bed sheets, pillow cases, etc. are all there for you as are plenty of bath towels, hand towels, and face cloths. There are also plenty of beach towels to use whilst you are staying at South Palms and enjoying your time around the Pool and Spa.
Oh, and talking of which, we haven't yet mentioned the 28 foot freeform fully screened swimming pool with raised Spa. Both the pool and Spa have a cyclic underwater light system for those "quiet" evening dips in the dark. The pool also comes with a sunshelf for the sun worshipers amongst you. With 2 separate controls, the pool or spa heating can be switched on independently if required during the Winter months. The pool area is surrounded by an extended deck with lots of furniture including a large hexagonal table for Al Fresco dining, 6 chairs, 2 chaise for lazing in the sun, and a couple of side tables to hold those important drinks. There is direct access to the downstairs 1/2 bathroom from the pool deck area conveniently located for both those caught short in the "ool" or for a quick change out of that wet bathing costume ........ Oh, and did you notice ....... There's no "P" in our "ool"!
The safety of all our guests is paramount and to enhance this there is a removable child security fence fitted around the perimeter of the pool. This is a temporary structure that is easily and quickly fitted or removed. All external doors leading to the pool deck area have also been fitted with "Pool Door" alarms that will be activated as soon as the door is opened .... preventing little 'uns gaining access to the deck through wandering hands.
Talking of security, the home is protected by a fully monitored Home Security system. For added security, smoke dectectors and emergency lighting have been fitted throughout.
