I miss my house in Lakeland Florida

I used to live in Lakeland Florida, I had a beautiful house sitting on 25 acres of land. It was out in the country, but yet it was still close to the city life. It was a 3 bedroom 2 bath house, with an awning. My father and I fenced in the yard and I had two big dogs.


In the picture above you can see how far my house was from the road. I enjoyed that I didnt have to listen to traffic driving by. It was nice.

These two picture are areal shots. Just to show you how larg the area was. I had two ponds that I could fish in or swim when ever I wanted. It was great! The two trees that you see in the front yard, I planted them. They look huge now.


The picture below shows my floor plan of the house. I had plenty of room for what ever I needed.



The only down fall to the home, was mowing the 25 acres. It was a major chore.


Need a map go to Goole Maps.

Have a great day all,

I bet the dogs loved to romp on all that acreage! Looked like a great place to live!

Mowing 25 acres? ALL of it? Please say you were joking.

Any wildfires ever?

I love that floor plan! I used to live in Lakeland, FL, too..... from 1971 until about 1975. I worked at Fat Boys' Barbeque and lived on Queen ST - - in an adorable cottage. The restaurant was across from a Publix shopping center. My neighborhood went past a lake and up a steep hill. How do you like those directions? At the Assembly of God Church in Lakeland, FL was where I accepted Christ as Savior and Lord and was baptized. It's great we have that city in common.

@Pat - yeah they loved it. I used to let them out and run and play in the ponds too. They had a blast.

@Cubby - yes I mowed all 25 acres. No wild fires either.

@Lynda - Wow what a small world. Who knew you lived that close. =o)
