An Inviting Lakeside Residence That’s Just the Right Size: Explore the Crossbill Apartment Home

October 8, 2020

With more than 1,000 square feet of spacious, open-concept living, the Crossbill floor plan at Lakeside at Waterman Village is designed to perfectly accompany our energetic and neighborly lifestyle. As one of the nine floor plan options within our convenient and connected Lakeside Grand building, the Crossbill is already one of the most popular floor plans among our Founding Members (we expect all of them to be sold before construction is complete!).

So why will you love living in our Crossbill apartment home? Let’s dive into the details and explore why it’s such a great choice—while availability remains!

A popular size and a truly functional layout

The Crossbill floor plan at Lakeside at Waterman Village offers two bedrooms with tons of closet space; two full bathrooms; a complete, modern and updated kitchen; and a spacious great room that’s perfect for gatherings. In fact, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom layout is one of today’s most desirable home styles for active older adults who may not need as much space as before, but still enjoy hosting friends and family.

Coupled with the popular arrangement of rooms is how the Crossbill really “punches above its weight class” in terms of its size. The Crossbill spans just under 1,100 square feet (1,086 to be exact) and what makes it special is how this floor plan makes the most of that number.

Inside the Crossbill, you won’t find any awkward, unusable spaces or long, narrow hallways. The design of the layout is essentially an open-concept kitchen and living area, with private and quiet spaces (bedrooms and bathrooms) on each side. The simple shape of each room within the Crossbill makes it easy to fit your favorite belongings throughout while not feeling cramped. Plus, there’s ample room for guests!

When we say “inviting,” we mean it!

Speaking of guests, the Crossbill boasts an entire section that can easily accommodate guests for a night, weekend or longer. Calling this home “inviting” is by no means a stretch.

The second bedroom of the Crossbill, located just off the great room, offers its own spacious closet and picture window so your guests can get their own views of the water or the tropical scenery, depending on the orientation of the specific residence. Plus, the Crossbill’s second full bathroom is just steps from the second bedroom, granting guests privacy and comfort. Your visitors (the kids, grandkids, longtime friends) will feel like you’re treating them to their very own guest suite!

Of course, the Crossbill offers a master suite that deserves plenty of attention, too. Located off the other side of the great room, the master suite offers what you would expect from a high-end resort—but it’s one you can customize with your favorite fixtures and finishes.

The master bedroom offers ample space for a king-size bed, from which you can enjoy the Florida sunlight streaming in through the attached screened balcony or patio. To get ready for each day and wind down from the fun of Lakeside living, the master bathroom offers a walk-in shower and bathtub as well as a contemporary dual vanity.

In short, the Crossbill floor plan at Lakeside at Waterman Village offers you and your guests personal oases, all close to the shimmering Lake Margaret.

Just steps from all of the action

Lake Margaret isn’t the only thing close to the Crossbill residence because this home is located within the Lakeside Grand building. Here, you are only steps away from the Lakeside Lifestyle Center and all of its amenities: restaurants, fitness, art spaces, games, events and more. Being so close to the hub of this soon-to-be-built community is why so many Lakeside Depositors have chosen floor plans like this.

Another reason why Lakeside Grand residences like the Crossbill—modestly sized but plenty big—are so popular is value. In many cases, choosing a floor plan like the Crossbill is attainable for less than the equity that you have in your current house. And when you add in that Lakeside at Waterman Village will be a total progressive retirement solution with a wide range of contract options, making the commitment becomes an even better investment in your future.

Time is running out to secure the best-possible pricing on all of the residences coming to Lakeside at Waterman Village because we’re breaking ground soon. We would love to welcome you to our safe, clean Information Center in lovely Mount Dora for a personalized appointment. Click here or call 352-385-1120 to get in touch!
