An impressive 95 percent of the 298 homes that Pulte Homes will build in Serenoa Lakes, a neighborhood in the master-planned community of Serenoa, boast water and nature preserve views. Single-family homes in Serenoa Lakes are priced starting from the $400s.

Serenoa Lakes scores with natural setting and deluxe amenities.

In the master-planned community of Serenoa in Clermont, homebuyers are finding a neighborhood, Serenoa Lakes, where almost every home boasts a fabulous Florida view. 

An impressive 95 percent of the 298 homes that Pulte Homes will build in the gated enclave boast water and nature preserve views, says Tristan Knop, director of marketing for the Central Florida Division of PulteGroup, a national brand of Atlanta-based Pulte Homes.

Resort-style amenities abound in Serenoa, and all Serenoa Lakes residents have access to a clubhouse complex that includes a zero-entry pool, a splash pad, a fitness center, a playground, multipurpose rooms and a patio with a fire pit.

Nearby walking trails, a picnic area and a dog park round out the amenities. However, residents of Serenoa Lakes also have the bonus of a private kayak launch, slated for completion in 2023, that will provide direct access to Johns Lake.

Tucked between U.S. Highway 27 and State Road 429 (Western Beltway) with U.S. Highway 192 to the south, Serenoa Lakes is tucked into a bountiful natural setting surrounded by several bodies of water. 

New connector roads will link its main road, Sawgrass Bay Boulevard, to Avalon Road, which will provide easy access to historic Winter Garden and the major theme parks.

Knop says that these three things — great views, a private kayak launch and new connector roads — are what set Serenoa Lakes apart from other neighborhoods.

“Almost half the homesites are sold and we already have 75-plus closed homeowners,” adds Knop. “We also have quick move-in homes that are available this fall.” 

Single-family homes in Serenoa Lakes are priced starting from the $400s. Buyers can choose from 15 floorplans organized into three series: the Garden Series, with four floorplans; the Select Classics Series, with six floorplans; and the Select Estates Series, featuring larger homes with five floorplans from which to choose. Square footage ranges from 1,580 to 4,194.

Popular home styles from the Select Classics Series include the Mystique, with 1,889 square feet, two to four bedrooms, two to three bathrooms and a two-car garage. Buyers especially like the spacious owner’s suite and a secondary bedroom with its own full bath. 

Those looking for a two-story home will appreciate the Whitestone, also from the Select Classics Series, with 2,894 square feet and options for either four or five bedrooms and 2.5 or four bathrooms. 

Using an interactive-plan tool on the website (pulte.com), you can alter floorplans, see exterior options and even place furniture in the rooms. Every model shown on the site has this useful (and fun) feature.

Homeowners in search of a more spacious home — well over 3,000 square feet — will want to consider the Select Estates Series. For example, there’s the two-story Oakhurst, with 3,820 square feet and four or five bedrooms, 2.5 to five bathrooms and a three-car garage.

The Easley Grand is even larger with 4,194 square feet. Its floorplan offers up to six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms plus a second floor that encompasses a loft, a media room, two bedrooms and one bathroom.

A tranquil setting and a large selection of home styles, plus easy access to dining, shopping, medical services and schools, makes Serenoa Lakes an attractive choice.
