Lake Forest Sanford FL – Community Info

by | Jan 13, 2016

One of the most desirable and unique subdivisions in Sanford FL is Lake Forest.

This guard gated planned community has approximately 800 homes, ranging in prices from $250,000 to millions. In fact, in the first half of 2009 10 homes sold in Lake Forest for final sales prices between $275,000 and $1,040,000. Please contact us for a detailed up to date list!

Lake Forest has an older part in the front of the community and a newer part in the back of the community. During the “boom” years in Central Florida (early/mid 2000s) the builder Morrison Homes (now Taylor Morrison) bought part of the land in Lake Forest to build newer subdivisions within Lake Forest.

Other homes in Lake Forest were built by custom home builders like Charles Ruthenberg Many of the homes have received awards for their outstanding architecture.

Here is a list of what most people like about Lake Forest:

  • Top location, only minutes from I-4 and 417 with easy access to Orlando (20 minutes to Winter Park/Downtown)
  • Resident convenience: there is a Publix grocery store, dry cleaner, banks and other businesses within walking/biking distance of the community. Also right at the gate area is a children daycare place.
  • Security – 24/7 guard at community entrance
  • Community Amenities: a junior size Olympic pool overlooking the lake, tennis courts and a club house with gym keep Lake Forest’s residents fit
  • HOA fees are lower than in other planned communities of the area (e.g. Heathrow) and you get to enjoy ALL amenities without paying extra
  • Amazing landscaping, “waterscaping” (because of its many lakes) and trees: Unlike many newer communities the larger old part of Lake Forest has beautiful mature trees. When you first enter Lake Forest it truly feels like entering a fairy tale forest. All of this also enhances the privacy of this beautiful subdivision.
  • Award winning community: “The Best Community in the Southeastern United States” and Parade of Homes’ Grand Award for “Best Community in Central Florida”

All of these benefits have attracted hundreds of families to Lake Forest since its start in the late 1980s/ early 1990s. There are still some lots available within Lake Forest if you are interested in building your dream home with one of the custom home builders. Contact us for more info.
