Nestled in a beautiful, tropical setting of palm trees, flowers and numerous small lakes, sits a gated golf course community with the ultimate location. Just 2 miles south of I-4 (Exit 55) on Hwy. 27, Ridgewood Lakes has many landscaped nature walks, over 400 acres of preserved areas, as well as a newly renovated 18-hole golf course, making it one of the finest developments in the entire area.
The elegant entrance from Hwy. 27 displays “Del Webb Orlando” which is an active adult community established last and just recently completed. This community has the newest homes with golf course, water or conservation views and a fabulous clubhouse with various activities and amenities for seniors.
What many do not know is that there are four other separate established subdivisions within Ridgewood Lakes: a second senior community, two family non-age restricted communities and a small condo community next to the White Heron Golf Course Clubhouse and Restaurant.
Ridgewood Pointe was the first subdivision, built in 2001, with family homes and vacation properties, zoned for short-term rental and no age restrictions. Some of these homes overlook a beautiful large pond. The Forest at Ridgewood was the second community built in 2002, and has larger, executive style homes with some views of the golf course, water or woods. Also zoned for short-term rental, this family community has its own pool, picnic area and playground. The Gallery, a condo community, is comprised of seven buildings, each with four units. All are either 2 or 3 bedroom with 2 full baths and come with a private one-car attached garage. Many have breathtaking golf course views! Last built before Del Webb was High Vista, a pristine 55+ community, completed in 2005. Many homes here also have magnificent views of golf course, water or woods. High Vista residents enjoy a private clubhouse with an exceptional heated pool and abundance of amenities. Now, beginning in the fall of 2021, D.R. Horton will build new townhomes and single-family homes near the entrance called Atria at Ridgewood Lakes. This will be the sixth subdivision inside the manned gates and will offer low maintenance living by Express Homes. This is the only remaining area to build a new home.
There is so much beauty and nature surrounding this private, exceptional, multi-community development and we have TWO realtors LIVING in Ridgewood Lakes, Debbie Owen and Lou Candelore who can show you around and find you the perfect home!
