Located about 45 minutes north of Tampa, Glen Lakes sits right next to the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. Some of its neighboring communities include Spring Hill and Brookridge.
Here you’ll find luxurious estate-style homes designed for easy living and entertaining. Open floor plans are common, as are high-end finishes like granite and ceramic. Residents enjoy spectacular views of the water and green fairways. The tropical climate is never a problem, since the homes here are fully air conditioned.
Lakeside home sites are available for those who want to live right by Cypress Lake, along with dry lot homes that are further away from the lakes and ponds that dot the community. Home sites along the 10th, 11th and 12th fairways are highly prized for their location.
The homes here typically have 3 to 4 bedrooms and 2 to 3 bathrooms, with living spaces that range from 1,600 to almost 3,000 square feet. Expect stunning island kitchens and spacious private gardens in most of these homes.
