Estate Homes in Exclusive Golf Community

The beauty of Laurel Oak is that properties are enveloped in nature.  My visits never fail to provide wildlife sightings that delight me:  egrets, storks, deer, otters, sandhill cranes... Large lots offer wildlife space to feel as at home as the home owners.  With optional membership at the Laurel Oak Country Club, this neighborhood suits diverse lifestyles. Full club membership provides swimming, golf, and tennis; social membership provides those who desire camaraderie a ready-made social life full of activities; and those who desire quiet and solitude have the space to do it.  While the homes are large, they are scaled to the lots and to the terrain--it is comfort without pretension.

The facts

Laurel Oak Estates is a collection of 404 homes situated on 813 acres amidst the scenic rolling golf courses of the Laurel Oak Country Club.  Homes were built throughout the 1990s and feature traditional Florida aesthetic, spacious floor plans, and larger lots.  An upscale, gated community, Laurel Oak Estates was designed for privacy and with respect of its surrounding nature.  The sophisticated neighborhood is entirely maintenance-free, with residences ranging from classic and simple villas to palatial estates.  Acreage for these homes range from just under 1/4-acre to over 3-acre lots.  Fitting a wide variety of budgets and desires, Laurel Oak is a friendly and social community, where neighbors and members mingle and know each other's names.
