One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. The Gardens in Seminole, FL is a quiet 55+ community sitting on the banks of the Lake Seminole Bypass. Each association has a separate circle of 6 buildings with condos on the 1st and 2nd floors. This corner condo is conveniently located on the first floor with 2 up front parking spaces. Almost everything in the place has been recently upgraded: A/C condenser and handler, electrical panel, hot water heater, luxury vinyl flooring, kitchen counters with beveled edges, appliances, InSinkErator disposer, bathtub and shower with grab bars, faucets, lighting with modern chandeliers, square recessed and under cabinet lighting in kitchen, added matching ceiling fans, rocker and dimmable light switches throughout, custom window blinds, storm door, and high-pressure toilets. The improvements were well thought out and this condo flows and matches. The condo opens to a small entryway with a large coat closet. The storm door has a retractable screen for fresh air during the wintertime. Matching ceramic tile in the entryway, kitchen, and bathrooms. Newly installed luxury vinyl flooring through the rest of home. There are 2 full bathrooms. The larger bathroom is an en-suite to the primary bedroom which includes a vanity, walk-in closet, and newly remodeled walk-in shower with glistening glass blocks. 2 of the 3 bedrooms are separated from the rest of this spacious condo. At 1,480 SF it feels like a home. There is a third bedroom with French doors off the living room area that is also perfect for a den or office. The sunroom is a great place to sit back and relax. This condo has a pool view but is not right on top of the pool. There is a lighted sidewalk out the sun room door that leads to the pool (no walking through grass to get to the pool). The utility closets holds a regular height stackable washer and dryer, A/C condenser, and water heater. The owner installed a dryer vent to the outside. Most of the units vent into a collection basket which pushes the dryer heat right back into the home. An indoor shut off water valve was also added for convenience and home safety. The primary bedroom furniture, traditional brown couch and 2 chairs, office desk and chair, and rocking chair can convey with the purchase. Owner has regular service on the new A/C with Fast of Florida, and the ducts were cleaned in March 2022. It is still equipped with a phone land line. A notable feature of this condo is the two covered parking spaces right in front of the condo. Most units only have one covered spot. The carports were redone by the association last year. There is minimal guest parking at the end of the carports. Each circle has its own clubhouse. laundry center, pool, pool bathroom, shuffleboard tennis courts, and covered bicycle storage. Fernwood Circle clubhouse is currently being remodeled. The heated pool is surrounded by plenty of loungers, and there is a community grill and loungers underneath the covered clubhouse patio. Fernwood Circle is at the back of the community and provides a great space to enjoy nature. You do not even have to leave The Gardens for walking and biking; but if you would like a different scene, Lake Seminole biking trails are right next door. About 5 miles to the beaches.
