Palm Lakes community, just north of University Parkway, is a small enclave of beautiful single family villas with barrel tile roofs and mature, landscaped yards. The lush landscaping, the surrounding lakes and the street design provide a very private, secure environment. The community offers the 114 homeowners a gated entry, playground, clubhouse and a heated, community pool. All types of events are held monthly in the clubhouse and give the owners a chance to get together socially. This villa has been lovingly cared for by the original owner. The floor plan makes use excellent use of all the square footage and is well thought out with no wasted space. The architectural features and the warm neutral tones of the home add so much to the design. The large living room is in the front of the home with the two bedrooms in the quiet, back spaces. The kitchen and dining area have plenty of room for gourmet cooking and formal dining. The kitchen is a u-shape which is ideal for those who love to cook. The master bedroom has a special “wing” or alcove to use as a small office, craft space or sitting area. The outdoor lanai is just off the dining room and kitchen which makes outdoor grilling a breeze. Newly painted inside, a new A/C unit and a new microwave make the home move-in ready. Maintenance free living gives owners more time to enjoy the Florida warm, sunny days. This home also provides a large, lanai for entertaining.
