The large master bedroom and en-suite contains two large walk-in closets. The lanai can be entered from both the master suite and living room. Custom Cool-Ray shades are installed on the lanai. There is a guest suite complete with a door for privacy, its own bath and a pair of twin beds. Within walking distance is grocery shopping, restaurants, movie theater and bars--all less than a mile away. East Lake Woodlands also boasts a 36 hole tournament class golf course. Its club is available with membership. A covered parking space goes with the condo as well as a key to the association heated swimming pool--just a few steps away. Two white sand beaches--Honeymoon and Caladesi--replete with shells are fifteen minutes distant; Disney World is 1-1/2 hours east. Pack your bags, your dream location is right here.

The sunsets are beautiful from our west facing lanai, dining room table and family room. The newly renovated kitchen lends itself to entertaining with a pass-through to the dining area. There are ample closets, comfortable beds and furniture. The Corian countertops make clean up easy. There are 2 flat screen TVs with wi-fi and cable supplied. Nice washer and dryer in closet on lanai. There is also a desk in the second bedroom that can be used as an office easily. A YMCA is 5 miles away with new exercise equipment and water aerobics. The condo has a lovely layout for living, and East Lake Woodlands as well as nearby John Chesnut Park are charming areas in which to walk. The Park borders Lake Tarpon, with wooden walkways and observation platforms and a tower for viewing the lake and adjacent woodlands as well as contains numerous picnic areas.

Unique Benefits

Proximity to many amenities: shopping, cinema, restaurants, bars, groceries, drug stores. Peaceful environment with wonderful views from lanai. Mere minutes from Dunedin Causeway and Honeymoon Beaches.

The Gulf is seven miles west on Curlew Road, which debouches onto the Dunedin Causeway and leads directly to Honeymoon Beach, one of Florida’s finest. A complete shopping center with a Publix, Target and numerous other restaurants and shops is immediately outside the gates. A second shopping area also immediately adjacent to the community contains a Walmart Grocery, Walgreen’s Pharmacy, restaurants, bars, gas stations, and other shops. A third shopping center with a Beall’s Department Store, an AMC movie theater, and numerous other stores is located just beyond the southern gate and across Tampa Road.
The charming towns of Dunedin, on the Gulf, and Safety Harbor, on the Bay, are within minutes of East Lake Woodlands.

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: I am originally from Elmhurst, IL, attended Carleton College, MN, and attained advanced degrees from Indiana University. My wife is from Annandale, VA, and attended Colorado University. I ended my teaching career after 50 years, the last 30 at No. IL Univ. I decided that spending time in a lovely setting in a condo tastefully decorated was a very fine way to leave the Geneva, Illinois winters for a gentler clime. The condominium is also a superb spring, summer and fall retreat.

Why this property? This is your perfect gated community retreat. The lanai and master bedroom look west onto a beautiful and peaceful water scene with gorgeous sunsets, complete with exotic fowl. The kitchen was renovated in 2018, with tile back-splash, new microwave and self-closing drawers, pull out shelves and cupboard doors. New sound- and hurricane-proof windows were installed in 2019.
