Who would have thought that two tiny settlements in Central Florida would transform into a premier luxury community. Situated between two major highways and just a 20-minute drive away from Orlando, Lake Mary started out as a farming community until the late eighties when a property surge transformed the city into an industrial and residential center.
Since then, “The City of Lakes” has earned numerous distinctions for being a top choice among homebuyers. CNN, for one, ranked Lake Mary as among the best to live in while Money Magazine placed it fourth in its own list. This is because the community has some of the country’s best rated schools and the lowest residential property tax in the whole Seminole County.

If you are searching for the best golf community in Central Florida, look no further than Timacuan.
Although located in the upscale areas of Lake Mary, Timacuan is by far the most affordable to live in. The median cost for owning a home ranges from mid $200,000 to over $400,000. Despite the low prices, leading a luxury lifestyle is never lost as the community comprises nearly 400 acres of luxury homes, landscaped grounds, and an abundance of wildlife. The golf and country club has over 90 acres of common area for all residents to enjoy.
Quality education is the cornerstone of living as a resident of Timacuan with A-rated first-class public schools in Seminole County.
If you prefer to live in non-golfing communities, you can still find communities that fits you best.
In this case, you can find a home in The Crossings specifically in the neighborhoods of Silver Lakes, The Reserve, Remington Oaks, Lakewood, Highlands of Lake Mary, Lakeview Village, Greenwood Lakes, and Sheffield.
With modest-sized homes and complete amenities for the whole family to enjoy, The Crossings would be an ideal place to start anew in the Deep South.
