Why spend $20 or $50 million on a luxury waterfront home, when you can do it for just $3.5 million. While most of the the Midwest is in a deep freeze, there is a paradise in Central Florida where some very extravagant homes have been built for the super rich to get away from it all. Some movie start like it here cause there is no major airport Located directly in the center of Florida so they often take a small commuter plane here and no one even recognizes them. There are some big ranches but there are also the multi-million dollar lakefront homes.

Sebring Florida has tow landmarks, Lake Jackson which is a clear water lake ideal for swimming and all water sports including some great bass fishing. It is the only lake that has several choices to take the boat to restaurants. It once held the record for the worlds fastest hydroplane and is home to the Nascar 12-hours of Sebring, a 60 year old 12 hour race with international recognition for it's 3.5 mile rally course with a 1-mile straight away for speeds 200+ can be reached.

All kidding asaid, in general Sebring has nice homes but Lake Jackson is special. This home we are highlighting is $3.5 million dollars, great beach and waterfront with a two-story dock which is the showpiece of the lake. It is a palace. You can easily make a case that this home in Coral Gables would be over $20 million dollars. If Miami Beach it could go as high as $50 million on the bay or Golden Beach.

But here in Sebring look at the type of home money can't buy in most cities. Palacial living. Make a great corporate getaway. Central Florida has many lakes and creeks. The biggest lake here is Lake Istokpoga which is 27,000 acres 10 miles long by 5 miles wide and has waterfront in Lake Placid, Sebring and Lorida, Florida.

Here's the bottom line. We have some fantastic lakes here in Central Florida. Clear water lakes, muck lakes and white sandy bottom lakes. Great fishing lakes and some small quiet spring fed lakes all located on rolling hills of Central Florida 75' above sea level. Lake Sirena in Lake Placid has super clear water spring fed white sandy bottom and is ideal for the pontoon boat, snorkeling and swimming. Lake Placid the actual Lake Placid is also a big lake over 3,500 acres and Lake June, many call Lake June in Winter is also about 3,500 acres, both are clear water white sandy bottom, this is hard bottom, sugar sand like the beaches on the West Coast of Florida. For those who have the money and really want to get away from it all, Sebring, Lake Placid and even Avon Park have some amazing homes at what most people from the north and the coast would call super bargains.
