Welcome to “St. Andrews” - our stunning home completed in late 2008 and situated on a very private plot in the prestigious gated community of "The Shire" at West Haven. Our two-storey 4 bedroom / 4 bathroom home overlooks a natural lake and has fantastic views from the pool/patio and upstairs balcony. There is an abundance of wildlife to view including Heron, Bittern, Egrets and, if you’re lucky, maybe a wee ‘gator or two - don’t forget to bring your binoculars! Relax in the spa or enjoy a glass of wine on the spacious deck or large upstairs balcony and watch the sunset. Our home is fully air-conditioned and downstairs includes a living room with a sofa and sofa bed, family room, formal dining area, fully-fitted kitchen with an island (with 4 bar stools) and breakfast nook with table and 4 chairs. The family room has two sofas and an additional chair, a 42” HD TV with digital cable receiver and a superb home theatre sound system. Also downstairs there is a bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom. This bedroom and bathroom are accessed from a hallway which itself has a door that can be locked turning this area into a private en-suite facility. The upstairs features a further twin bedroom and separate bathroom and two master bedrooms. The first master, with direct access to a large balcony overlooking the pool deck and with stunning views over the lake, has a king-size bed with an en-suite bathroom that has two vanity areas, a spa bath, separate shower cubicle, toilet and a huge walk-in-dressing area. The second master also overlooks the lake and has a queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom with separate vanity units, a spa bath, separate shower cubicle and toilet. The home has wireless broadband internet and a keyless front door entry system for the convenience of our guests. The pool deck has a good-size electric heatable swimming pool with raised spa area (protected by a safety net for the benefit of families with young children) and a large covered lanai and outdoor lights. The upgraded patio furniture consists of a round table with 4 chairs and 4 sun loungers. All of the bedrooms have ceiling fans and feature the latest flat screen high definition TVs and also have radio units with iPod docking stations. The two master bedrooms also have DVD players. With each bedroom effectively having its own bathroom, our home is the perfect base for either groups of golfers arriving to challenge the many superb golf courses or families wanting easy access to the major attractions that Orlando has to offer.
"The Shire" at West Haven is a wonderful secure gated community and is considered to be one of the very best locations in the Orlando area. The community is surrounded by wetlands, conservation areas and orange groves. Our guests will have access to the main clubhouse (just a short walk away and due to open in early 2009) which will offer a range of recreational activities including a large swimming pool, two tennis courts and beach volleyball. All major attractions are easily accessed and the Disney gates are just 15 minutes and Universal Studios is approx. 30 mins away. Orlando International Airport is about a 40-minute drive. Posner Park is a large new retail shopping outlet (J C Penney, Target etc) located just over a 5 minute drive away while golfers can enjoy a number of championship courses including two at the Greg Norman designed Champions Gate (home to David Leadbetter’s academy), the renowned course at Reunion and Highlands Reserve. All of these courses are within 5 miles, with the Champions Gate complex being less than 5 minutes away. "The Shire" is also approximately just one hour from Tampa and the Gulf beaches, the Atlantic beaches and the Kennedy Space Center.
