docks, good jet skiing - mainly a recreational lake. I have kids, so schools, even private, are important. 4 bedrooms and below $550K. Thanks.

Hi Seo!

The link below includes a couple of videos from our area.

I live in LAKE County so as you can imagine we have a few lakes around here. Actually about 1,000.

Several of the larger lakes are connected together and eventually lead to a river that ends up in the Atlantic ocean.

We are 40 minutes NW of Orlando. This is a chariming rural area of rolling hills, lakes and special scenery.

We have homes on direct lake-front one has 280' directly on the water another has about 120'.

If you feel that our special area may be a consideration for you please contact us.

Ray Levy

Good Luck!

Hi, if you would like to live on a lake in a more rural area in central Florida, check out Lake County. There are many wonderful large lakes here. Lake Dora, Lake Yale, Lake Harris and Lake Eustis just to name a few. I moved here to raise my family. Good luck to you and your home search.

Hello Seo,

Lake Carroll, in the Carrollwood area of Tampa is absolutely beautiful. You would be in the lower price range which is great for appreciation value. Not knowing the gender or age of your children, I am limited in suggesting schools, however here are a few Berekely Prep. and Academy of Holy Names. Feel free to contact me if you would like more specifics. I hope these suggestions help.
