Located in Polk County, Florida, the city of Auburndale is an ideal place to live, work and play. Originally founded as an escape from chilly Northeast winters, the city quickly became a chosen destination for a number of America’s most prominent artists. Now you can call this city home when you move to Cascara, a brand new community of new homes for sale in Auburndale, Florida priced from the $180’s.

Conveniently located between Tampa and Orlando, Auburndale is flanked to the north by I-4, making your commute into larger cities, including Lakeland, a breeze.
