The 1923 Charles Wilkinson Estate is situated on two magnificently landscaped acres just west of Plant City, Florida. It is perfectly located, just 5 minutes from Interstate 4; 10 minutes to all of your family shopping needs; only 25 minutes to downtown Tampa and a short 45 minutes to the play-land of Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando.
Train Lovers --- Plant City is named in honor of Henry B. Plant, an industrial tycoon that built the east-west railroad that connects Florida's coasts, the Gulf of Mexico, just an hour away and the Atlantic Oceans just two. You should enjoy watching the trains rumble past the balcony as you recall the good old days. This was one of Mrs. Wilkinson's favorite past times.
When you step through the wrought iron gates of the Charles Wilkinson Estate you will feel 1000 miles away from the hustle bustle of your workday. You will sense that you have slipped back into a time of less stressful living; as you listen to the birds sing and watch the squirrels chase each other around the trees.
With almost 2 acres completely fenced your pets can run and play; as you enjoy the privacy you deserve. In the 40+ years that this property has been in my family there has never been a home invasion. Home should always be a safe and secure place.
All of your friends and family will fall in love with the charm of this breathtaking estate. It is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. It has a water tower, concrete fish pond and even a small basement.
This will be a true Florida experience and will bring you years of happy memories.
PLEASE make sure this property is in your price range. $350 nightly, 3 day minimum, $1,700 weekly & $3,700 monthly, plus FlipKey charges. Thanks a million. Stan
