The Retreat at Legacy Park includes 165 single family homes and is one community of five communities included in the Legacy Park Master Plan of residential neighborhoods. KB Home built the house in 2005. The property is located approximately 2 miles (5 minutes) south of U.S. Highway 192 in Davenport, FL, very close to the Walt Disney World theme parks, shopping and all of the entertainment opportunities that Central Florida (the entertainment capital of the world) is known for. The property is a classic two story KB Floor plan featuring large open living spaces. One of the best characteristics of the property is that three of the five bedrooms have their own private bathroom. This is a spectacular feature. One ensuite is located on the first floor making the property functional for the family member that does not want to climb stairs. Another nice feature is the half bath located outside next to the swimming pool. When you enter through the front door you find yourself in the combination living and dining room. Behind the dining room is the family room and kitchen combo. The kitchen is huge and services the family room. This is another fantastic feature of this big beautiful home. The largest bedroom in the house is on the second floor. The master bedroom is located just off the loft. The entry to the master bedroom, from the loft, is through double entry doors. The ambience created by this layout cannot be overstated. Contact your favorite real estate professional for the rest of the information.

10 Bedroom Hacks That May Improve Your Quality of Sleep

 

Are you up all night after being up all day? You’re not alone. You may have tried counting sheep, but have you thought about changing your environment? These simple changes may improve your quality of sleep and help you recharge for the next day.

Block out light

Sunrises are beautiful, but that early morning sunlight can wake you up before your alarm does. Choose thick, dark curtains so your bedroom can remain in optimal sleeping conditions until you’re ready to rise and shine.

Keep noise to a minimum

While you can’t always control sounds outside of your home, try to decrease the volume inside. A thick area rug may muffle noise. If someone in the family likes watching television late at night, consider buying cordless headphones.

Get rid of distractions

Ban electronics from your bedroom. This means TVs, computers, and cellphones should reside somewhere else. Buy an alarm clock and switch to traditional books. Technology stimulates the brain, making it more difficult to relax when it’s time to sleep.

Avoid blue light

Blue light, such as the light from electronics and fluorescent lighting, has been known to disrupt your circadian rhythms — another reason why cell phones shouldn’t be in your room. Eliminate blue light even further by replacing your lights with warm, yellow colored lights.

Find storage elsewhere

Experts say a bed should be elevated so that the space underneath it is available for air circulation. So if sleeping better is your goal, don’t use under-the-bed storage. Find a different spot to stash stuff.

Stick to cool paint colors

Cooler shades such as blue, green, purple, and grey, are known to reduce heart rates and slow respiration. Because of their physically calming capabilities, they may be the best choice of color to choose for your bedroom.

Pick a perfect pillow

Believe it or not, pillows are not “one size fits all.” Your sleep position should determine your pillow firmness. Are you allergic to something in your current pillow? Consider a hypoallergenic one. Spend some time researching the right pillow for you.

Buy your dog a bed

Your dog may be your best friend, but that doesn’t mean you two have to share everything. Give your buddy his own bed so he’s comfortable even when he’s not in yours. You might find that having your own space improves your sleep.

Keep your cool

Having just a little bit of air circulating through the room at night may improve air quality (and sleep). Open a window or use a fan or air conditioner.

Embrace Feng Shui

Bringing Feng Shui into your home may bring calmness and serenity, both of which may help you relax into a deep sleep.

Start with some of these tips today and you may catch more zzz’s with ease.

7 Creative and Quick Dining Room Updates

With so many dining rooms being converted into part of the living room or kitchen these days, dining room design has kind of fallen by the wayside. But if you’re one of the lucky homeowners to have hung on to a formal dining space, you’ve got an opportunity to make some amazing modern updates. Here are 7 affordable ways to breathe new life into an old dining room:

#1 Perk things up with paint.
Are your dining room walls still the same color they were when you moved into your house 10 years ago? If so, there’s a good chance the color’s a little past its prime. In fact, it may also be doing an injustice to your furniture and the updates you’ve made in adjoining rooms as well. Refresh the walls with a paint shade that makes you feel comfortable and cozy. The room will reflect that feeling.

#2 Modernize the lighting.
Are outdated chandeliers and lamps gathering dust in your dining room? Consider sending them packing and installing some recessed lighting and pendants in their place. Pendant lights, in particular, come in a wide variety of styles and colors sure to add some new pizzazz to your space.

#3 Repurpose another room.
If your dining room is located in an undesirable space — a cramped corner of the house away from the kitchen, for example — pick a new place for your table and chairs. Put them in the kitchen, if you have the the space. Or, place the dining table somewhere right in your living room, where there’s easy access to the TV and stereo. You should always feel comfortable during a meal, and being confined to an area you don’t enjoy doesn’t contribute to that feeling.

#4 Add some visual appeal.
Visual appeal doesn’t stop at paint and lighting. It’s also important to consider how wall decor may increase the interest and comfort of the room. Blank walls may make it easy to zone out and focus on your meals, but your guests will surely enjoy looking at something a little more interesting. Depending on your budget and the size of your dining room, consider hanging potted plants and colorful pieces of art. Just be sure to balance wall decor with other elements in the room so your space doesn’t feel like it’s cluttered with stuff.

#5 Throw in a rug.
One of the worst sounds to hear is a chair scratching against the floor as you go to get up from the dining table. So fix the issue. Add a rug underneath the table and chairs to make things soft and cozy. Choose a rug that isn’t too thick with fibers. Otherwise, your chairs can get stuck and twisted. Of course, you’ll also want to make sure that the style and color of your rug complement the rest of the room.

#6 Use dividers.
Many newer homes combine kitchen and dining spaces. If you want to create a dedicated dining space, think about incorporating a room divider. It’s much cheaper than installing a wall — and you can add shelves, plants or a sliding door to further divide the two spaces. Plus, the flexibility of the divider allows to revert back to the bigger space any time you like.

#7 Build in.
How’s your dining room designed? Do you have a table that sits in the middle with four chairs around it? If you want to make the room more functional — and create more storage in the process — think about ditching the clunky furniture and opting instead for built-ins like bench seating, china cabinets and buffets. A professional can create custom built-ins to suit any style.

The Glenbrook Community is located 1.6 miles north of Highway 192 in unincorporated Clermont, Florida. From many perspectives, the location of the property is optimal. For example, Walt Disney World's Disney Springs, one of the world's most visited entertainment and shopping destinations is 14 miles (26 minutes) from the property.

The house features 4 bedrooms and 3-1/2 bathrooms. The floorplan places the bedrooms in the corners of the house delivering on privacy for every occupant. The house is beautifully appointed. The most trafficked areas of the house are all floored with ceramic tile. The bedrooms are equipped with high quality faux wood laminate flooring. The entrance foyer sets the tone for the rich quality that the owner created by adding personal touches throughout the house. The property's most notable feature is the open floor plan.

The active family's activities typically center around the kitchen. The openness and accessibility of the kitchen to the great room establishes a fun and inclusive character to the property. The Master Bedroom is luxurious as is the Master Bathroom. Other household dignitaries will be pleased to experience bedroom number two, a gorgeously appointed ensuite with direct access onto the pool deck.

The half bath is just outside the second bedroom and, while servicing the great room, also performs as a pool bath. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are located closer to the front of the house and are separated by the third full bathroom. Perfect as a primary residence or a second home.

Orange Tree is one of the most desirable communities in South Lake County. Orange Tree houses are typically larger than the houses in neighboring communities.

The builder had a special knack for creating warm and functional floor plans. The Disney Springs shopping and entertainment complex is only 18 miles (30 minutes) away from Orange Tree. While the floor plan is spectacular, the outdoor areas at 15822 Robin Hill Loop are most folks favorite features. The covered lanai is unmatched by competing floor plans. The master bedroom, the dinette and the family room all have sliding glass door access to the pool deck. The covered area around the swimming pool feels like an addition to the house. You have to see it to fully appreciate it. The master bedroom features two separate walk in closets.

There are dual basin sinks in the master bathroom. The master bathroom includes a garden bathtub and separate shower. Bedroom two is directly across the hall from the pool bath which gives the bedroom the functionality of an ensuite. Bedrooms three and four are separated by the third bathroom. The kitchen is located in the center of the house. The breakfast bar is another fantastic feature that makes the house very livable. Entertaining is fun and easy from this kitchen, equipped with natural gas. Stop by and walk through this beautifully designed and optimally located property. The property is easy to show. It could very well be the perfect primary residence for you and your family. Second home buyers will love it too.

A great presentation: 6 easy tips for staging your own home

There’s no question that staging your décor is advantageous when you’re trying to sell your home.

The strategic editing and placement of your furnishings can be enormously important to boosting its appeal. In a recent NAR survey, in fact, 77 percent of buyers’ agents agreed staging is important to helping potential buyers envision a given home as their own. Fortunately, conducting your own staging need not be complex; you should be able to mimic professional techniques by following a few easy guidelines:

  • Prioritize by room. The NAR reports you’ll get the most visual impact by staging your living room, master bedrooms, kitchen and extra bedrooms(s), in that order.
  • De-clutter. Cleaning will be easier after you pack away at least 90 percent of your own décor and personal artifacts. Your goal is to create a minimally decorated space buyers can imagine moving in to.
  • Deep clean. Everything must be groomed, sparkling and odor-free inside and out.
  • Divide and conquer. Plan to remove about half your furniture to give the impression of optimal space. If it’s all unpresentable, use stylish rental pieces or fake “pop-up furniture” for showings. Tip: Wherever possible, move display furniture away from walls (a technique known as “floating”) to create groupings that are tied together visually with area rugs.
  • Accessorize inside and out. Create an atmosphere of airiness, friendliness and cheer by selectively adding new flowers, potted plants, attractive seating and welcome mats outside, perhaps fresh flowers and bowls of fruit inside.
  • Optimize light. Add brighter light bulbs, pull back curtains, clean windows and clean (or perhaps update) light fixtures to add to the overall impression of positivity.

Home Buyer Checklist: What to Look for in an Open House

Open houses may be staged to look like a home decor dream, but don’t let that distract you from the real reason you’re there: to potentially buy a home. Make sure you can look past the neatly arranged furniture and focus solely on whether the house would be a good fit for you and your family. To help, here’s a home buyer’s checklist of things you might have missed at first glance.

Windows – Look specifically if they are facing the right direction to let sunlight in, and whether they open to a nice view (versus directly toward another neighbor’s window).

Under the Sink Cabinets – Check for possible signs of water damage due to leaky plumbing.

Electrical Outlets – Make sure there are enough outlets for the appliances and other electronics you’ll be using. If not, you can decide if that’s a renovation you’d like to make.

Storage Space – Don’t just look to see if there’s enough closet space, but look for closet placement. Also check that the storage is in a convenient location.

Appliances – If they’re included in the house, make sure they’re in good condition. They should be on and working while you’re there.

Under the Rugs – Lift up any rugs to check the condition of the floor underneath.

Floor Level – Check to see if the floors are level. Place a marble or another small, round object on the floor and see if it rolls consistently in one direction.

Attic – If the house has one, make sure it’s well insulated.

Water Spouts – Runoff from the gutters should be pointed away from the house, so take a step outside to see if this is the case.

This list isn’t all-inclusive, but it’s a good place to start. Talk to a CENTURY 21 ® agent to see what else he or she might add.
