"BIRDSONG" - Owners: Art and Linda McClintock

BIRDSONG'S exterior was designed to resemble the original Floridian old style of architecture, with replica wooden panelling, raised front porch/veranda, railings and small pane windows. The front porch features white wicker chairs, loveseat and table, rocking chair, and is the perfect place to breakfast in the early morning sunshine......or for an evening cocktail.

The rear of Birdsong looks out onto a small lake/pond, and is totally private, secluded and bathed in sunshine all day. The secluded pool and spa catch this sunshine - keeping the water warm, but both are electrically heated in the cooler winter months. (The pool is also totally private).The pool deck comes equipped with loungers, tables and chairs for sun bathing, chilling out and relaxation!

The surrounding area is very quiet, with no through traffic. The landscaped gardens are tropical in style. At the rear, there is a small pond/lake.. This secluded aspect encourages wildlife, and we have been treated to frequent visits from a variety of vividly colored birds(hence our name "Birdsong")! We have also had enjoyed seeing foxes, rabbits, squirrels, armadillos, raccoons and even a wild boar on one occasion! In fact, this area is a protected wildlife sanctuary.

After years of searching, we feel we have at last found our paradise - relaxing with a glass of wine, by the lakeside, or in the hot tub at sunset - with just the night chorus for company.

The elevated rear lanai (patio) - complete with railings, ceiling fan, table and chairs - is always in shade, providing relief in mid summer, when it may become too hot during the day. At sunset, this is an ideal place for the cocktail hour and the evening meal.

The interior is furnished to a very high standard. The living area is spacious with high cathedral ceilings, and Nafco Lorraine oak flooring. Sliding doors take you onto the lanai and to the pool. The large curved corner sofa, complete with welcome leg rests, is the perfect place to relax at the end of a long, arduous day, and flick through the 120 + channels on the large 34" satellite TV - or just listen to the stereo or radio. There is also a well stocked bookcase to suit a variety of tastes.The luxury kitchen is fully equipped, and has a breakfast bar. The dining nook comes complete with a large oval table and six chairs - perfect for dinner indoors, and overlooks the secluded landscaped rear.

The master bedroom is fully carpeted and features a queen size bed and 32" satellite TV. A large bay window with window seating overlooks the private rear garden. This bedroom features an en-suite bathroom - complete with a large 6' oval marble bath - walk in shower, and separate "his" & "hers" marble vanity sink units.
Of the two additional bedrooms, one features a large queen size bed and satellite TV. The other, overlooking the front veranda, has two single beds. Each bedroom has its own bathroom.

Birdsong

The house was even better than I expected. Usually we stay in a hotel. It was a home away from home. Comfortable and roomy. It was great to have our own pool. Groceries and shopping nearby were handy. Wished i could have stayed longer.
