Property Type: Manufactured Home


Basically, I am looking to swap my holiday home in Florida for a UK property of a similar value. This property was bought last April for cash - $75,000 – there is no mortgage on the property. The amount of $75,000 is equal to roughly £44,500. So I would be willing to swap my property for a UK property equal to about $44,500 or this figure plus cash.

Now my Florida property – read on . . .

The property, a manufactured bungalow, is located in Haines City just south of Orlando and is situated on the beautiful Lake Hester. The edge of the lake is only 50 yards away!  The veranda is located off the 14 x 15 all-season room with glass windows, screens and vertical blinds with Berber carpet. Last summer there were two small alligators in the lake!! I believe they have now been removed.

The house is situated in a 'gated community' with round-the-clock security and is a peaceful location, an ideal holiday home spot, an option for retirement or for buy-to-let. The house has two bedrooms, one with en-suite, and a study that could easily be used as a third bedroom, and bathroom. There is a fitted kitchen with dining area and huge lounge, again with a large dining area. There is what I would call a sitting room that opens out to the veranda, which is East-facing, and one can enjoy beautiful sunrises over the lake. All rooms are beautifully furnished.

There are five ceiling fans, three skylights, tape and textured walls, green carpet, all window treatments, washer/dryer behind louver doors, and in the kitchen are just a few of the wonderful features.

The property has a garage-cum-workshop and large carport. The house is air-conditioned. There are two plasma screen televisions. The house comes fully furnished (see photos) and is loaded with bedroom auxiliaries, toiletries, cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and glassware. There is absolutely nothing missing. You can literally walk straight in without buying anything!

There is a warm community spirit in the estate. The community offers heated swimming pool, shuffleboard, billiard room, library, and clubhouse, with Internet. The recreational opportunities here are excellent. Both the Atlantic and Gulf Coast beaches are no more than 90 minutes' drive and within easy reach is Disneyland, SeaWorld, Legoland, Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral and Universal Studios. There are several golf courses in the area, together with Walmart, banking facilities, shops and restaurants.

The estate, on Lake Hester, and the central Florida area is dotted with many freshwater lakes offering boating, swimming, and some of the best fishing in the country all year round! The great thing about Florida is that it enjoys year-round warm temperatures and it never gets cold!

I would add that swapping this kind of property in Florida is fast and hassle-free without the need for expensive lawyer involvement. The land rent, which is the only overhead other than utilities, is 395$ per month.

So, if you are genuinely interested in purchasing this property then please get in touch. My details are:
