What’s not to love? Spacious homes on spacious home sites, a heart-of-Orlando location, a top-rated school district and one of the best values in an in-demand location – Sawgrass will have all that and more! If you’re looking for South Orlando new homes, you’ll want to join the Sawgrass VIP list. That way you’ll be sure to receive news about floor plan and pricing releases, model openings, special events and other updates.
When it opens for sales later this year, Sawgrass is expected to offer homes ranging from 3,800 to over 4,100 square feet with four or more bedrooms on 70-foot wide sites. It’s perfect for a family with teens or anyone who just wants a lot of elbow room and privacy. Community amenities on the drawing board include a pool, clubhouse, playground, basketball and tennis courts, sports fields and pocket parks. There are also several ponds and conservation areas throughout the site.
With prices anticipated to start in the low $300s, Sawgrass will be a great value in a prime location, especially if you work in the Medical City area, which is only 6 miles to the east. But Sawgrass is convenient to all major Orlando employment centers. Downtown is just 12 miles to the north, the theme park corridor is 12 miles west, so commuting shouldn’t be an ordeal. If you travel, you’ll appreciate that the Orlando International Airport is just minutes from your front door.
Handling your everyday errands should be a snap, too. When you need a gallon of milk, there’s a Publix grocery nearby that shares a shopping center, a bank, dry cleaner and pharmacy. Just three miles west, you’ll find a Costco, Target, movie theater, Home Depot and Burger King at Orange Blossom Trail. The Florida Mall is five miles to the north and when you’re really in the mood for some power shopping, Orlando’s major outlet malls are about 12 miles away.
Schools are a big consideration for many families when looking for new homes in Orlando. Kids in kindergarten through fifth grade will attend A-ranked Wetherbee Elementary, which just opened in the 2011-12 school year. South Creek Middle, now in its seventh year, serves grades 6 through 8 and Cypress Creek High, grades nine through 12.
Along with the many area theme parks and cultural attractions, Sawgrass is close to some exceptional natural attractions. Split Oak Forest Wildlife and Environmental Area has nearly 2,000 acres of preserve habitat for native wildlife and plants and is a popular place for hiking, horseback riding and nature viewing. East Lake Tohopekaliga covers 12,000 acres and attracts bass fishers, campers, boaters and birders.
