Modest Lake Alfred Home in a Waterfront Community for Sale
1901 US Highway 17, #92-112, Lake Alfred, Florida 33850
Lake Alfred is a peaceful town with lakes and leafy neighborhoods in central Florida. It is also the location of this modest but clean manufactured home for sale in a 55+ waterside community on Lake Haines called Woodland Lakes. The residence dates from 1990 and has two bedrooms, two baths and 1,248 square feet. The asking price is $51,995.
The exterior is tan with white trimmed windows and a white front door. The attached carport can accommodate two vehicles.
The home has an open floor plan with Nucor plank flooring. Wood cabinets are the laundry room and hallway, providing lots of room for storing items, as well as in the kitchen, which boasts a dishwasher, a fridge, a stove and a breakfast bar. The master bedroom has a dual vanity and a bath with a walk-in shower. There is also a "man cave" with a wet bar.
A workshed is out back, and the home is approved for a lanai. The central air conditioning was replaced in 2016, and the home has a washer/dryer hookup. A sprinkler system is in place but not quite working.
The property does not sit right next to the water but has a long boardwalk through nature and wildlife to reach the private boat dock and boat lift (the long walkway needs some repair). The new homeowner has permission to add a screen room to the dock (but should double check on that).
Community amenities include a swimming pool, a shuffleboard court and a recreation center with a pool table. Pets are allowed but need prior approval (new owners also need board approval before purchase).
The land lot fee is $632 per month, plus a $62 monthly pass-through tax (a tax passed on from the community to the homeowners), and includes water, trash and access to the amenities.

The world's 11th largest peninsula doesn't just have an east coast and a west coast. It has a First Coast, Surf Coast, Space Coast, Treasure Coast, Gold Coast, Paradise Coast, Lee Island Coast, Cultural Coast, Nature Coast, Big Bend Coast, Emerald Coast, and a Forgotten Coast.
Each of these geographic regions is packed with its own history and attractions. The first place to be colonized by Europeans, the First Coast is rich with tidal marshes. It's the home of Amelia Island and St. Augustine. The venerable Castillo de San Marcos sits here and guards the Matanzas Bay.
Daytona Beach and the Halifax River are the heart of the Surf Coast. Automobile racing helped it develop its reputation. The area code is 386 (FUN). South of the fun is the Space Coast. Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, and the Kennedy Space Center are a part of its culture.
Named after the Spanish fleet lost in a 1715 hurricane, the Treasure Coast's principle city is Port St. Lucie. It is a northern neighbor to Miami and the Gold Coast. The affluent Naples and major land reserves characterize the Paradise Coast. The Ringling Estate and Sarasota make the Cultural Coast come alive. Twenty miles of beaches along the Gulf Coast distinguish the Suncoast from the forests and blackwater rivers of the Nature Coast.
Travel up to Florida's Big Bend along its emerald waters. Find the Forgotten Coast. With no major cities, it may be the best place to enjoy the state's white-sand beaches.
