About our home

This 1924 restored home offers a/c, ceiling fans, cable TV, washer and dryer, and a lovely large screened-in porch to relax from your adventures. Lake Wales is exactly in the center of Florida, 80 miles from Vero Beach, 80 miles from Tampa, and about an hour from Disney World, Seaworld, Universal, Bush Gardens and many other Florida sights.

My car is a Saturn SUV, yellow (easy to find in large parking lots) and will get you anywhere.

Double bed in lower bedroom; trundle bed in guest room; queen bed in master bedroom. Full bath upstairs and downstairs.

Quiet neighborhood, close to churches, grocery, restaurants, movies, mall.

Lake is one block away -- a piece of which can be seen from the Study.

I live with cats, and they cannot travel with me. Person swapping with me would have to feed them, and be very very nice to them.

Next door neighbor would be able to provide great source of information and knowledge about the house and its functions.

Lake Wales was established in the height of the citrus boom in the 1920s and the town is quite charming with its old buildings lovingly restored. The lake is rather large and has a pedestrian walkway almost all the way around it. Our ball park is also within walking distance of the house and shows all sorts of ball sports from the area. Near by Lake Wales is Winter Haven with lots and lots of shopping, churches, museums and just about every cousine imaginable. Lake Wales is surrounded by orange trees.

I am retired from the US Government and hold a seasonal position with Disney World where I take care of Tigger, Pooh Bear, Eeyore and Piglet. I have been reading about England and the Tudors, and the Plantagenents since the early 1960s. If I can find a house to swap with it will be my sixth trip to England. I have never been disappointed with my visits there. I am a cat person, but I also get along with dogs if there is a pet there to take care of while you are away. I have never had an auto accident and would be very careful with your car. On my last trip to England I drove -- without incident -- over 1,300 miles while 'driving on the wrong side of the road'. I am 63 years old and in very good health. It is my desire to visit England one more time before this condition changes on me.
