Property Description

***PRIVATE SETTING** This is a rare find. “Welcome to Hidden Cove”. Live in your own private sanctuary with a breathtaking view of Gum Lake. This Garden of Eden is hidden from the road and almost invisible as you are out on the lake relaxing in your boat. Gum Lake is approximately 162 acres and is private with no public access. There is conservation on one side and a tree berm on the other with an electronic gate keeps you in total privacy. Everything about this property has been remodeled or built new in the past 10 years. You can be self-sufficient with, solar, a Generac whole home generator with a 500-gallon (owned) propane tank, well, chicken yard (FYI these chickens are spoiled in their kingdom so they give plenty of eggs), and hydroponic garden with a programmed pumping board. The main house is a 3 bedroom 2-bathroom 1936 SF ranch style home that has been completely renovated and updated in the last 10 years. The 3rd bedroom is currently used as an office. There too many upgrades and updates to list. “SEE ATTACHMENTS” Ask your agent to print off the list. Just to name a few. AC system, roof, windows, granite countertops, cabinets, storage space, decks, cabanas, the list just goes on. There is an 800 sf work shop/man cave on a concrete slab, fully insulated with central heat and air, kitchen and bath. The guest house/rental is a 3 bed 2 bath 1440SF MFH that has also been renovated and updated within the past 10 years that currently generates $925/month rental income. Use the income towards your payments or move in your mother-in-law. The guest home has its own septic and also has a huge storage shed on site. You will have to see for yourself what this hidden paradise has to offer as there is not enough room here to describe it. Make an appointment today as this will be a one time opportunity to own a ready to go mini ranch teaming with wildlife that is also in a perfect location outside of city limits but is within 5 minutes to I-4 for easy access to Orlando, and Tampa, with Disney close by and all the theme parks central Florida has to offer. Lake Alfred is the perfect central location as you are within easy driving distance to Winter Haven, Auburndale, Lakeland, Haines City, Davenport and activities galore! ****Seller will consider owner financing with a qualified buyer with at least a 10% down payment of purchase price.****Call or email listing agent for details.
