This time its personal!
My wife and I were perfectly content in our 3 bedroom 2 bath home in Lakeland that we just listed and sold on a whim. Why? As a real estate broker I saw an opportunity. A twice expired listing of a Winter Haven Hobby Farm For Sale that was on 8.87 acres with a 1 acre pond, two pastures, and a total of three houses and a 4 car detached garage. This property needs a fair amount of work to bring it back to its former glory, things like removing the origional 1940's home, a new roof on the main house, a new kitchen, clearing the pastures and redoing plenty of fencing. But this property was for us. I wanted a rental and some room to keep my bees and garden, my wife wants horses, a flock of chickens, and some goats. This allows all of that, and more!
We just finished putting in the new A/C unit, and are measuring the roof this week to have a metal roof ordered and installed. We decided to go with a metal roof because it will out live both of us. We are going to replace appliances with energy efficient ones as the current ones fail.
The 2 bedroom 1 bath house is going to be placed in the AirBNB program for families looking to stay and expierence a farm vacation between going to Legoland and other Central Florida Theme Parks!
We are planning on making this our legacy, so we decided to name it the DeHaven Family Farm. We will also be documenting our adventures on our youtube channel DeHaven Family Farm. Check it out and subscribe if you want to stay up to date on happenings around our farm!
