About 3230 East Forest Lake Drive

Old Forest Lakes, fully remodeled midcentury lakefront home now available. Enjoy the true Florida experience of connecting with nature, while having the peace of mind of a completely updated home in this centrally located neighborhood. While keeping many of the original features of the home, including the tongue-and-groove ceiling with wood beams and the original crown moldings and colors, everything behind the scenes has been updated. The newly added, 1,200-square-foot covered lanai offers breathtaking views across the lake in an amazingly private setting. The lot, nearly an acre, encompasses this four-bedroom, three-bath home, along with a one-bedroom, one-bath guest cottage. The many upgrades include a two-car air-conditioned garage, a newly built two-car carport, impact windows, a whole-house generator and a pool with a lake view! The eclectic feel of this home incorporates the warmth of a simpler time and the modern amenities that we all desire. A large traditional wood-burning fireplace warms up the living room, while the open kitchen allows easy entertaining from inside to out. The lush landscaping and surrounding wildlife make it hard to believe that this home is so convenient to shopping and restaurants. This is a wonderful family home with the opportunity for everyone to have a separate space while also feeling like the ultimate party house! A rare chance for an idyllic spot on this lake!
