We recently published an article highlighting some of the top reasons to move to Auburndale, Florida, and now, we are excited to debut a brand-new neighborhood you'll want to call home!

Introducing Otter Woods Estates, a boutique community offering 22 exclusive new construction homes in Auburndale, all situated on spacious 1/4-acre home sites in a quiet cul-de-sac. Located on the fringes of the city limits, off Bolender Road about one mile east of Lake Ariana (and within view of Lake Mariana), Otter Woods Estates offers a charming, country-like setting where orange groves scent the air, where peaceful surroundings welcome you home, and spacious, personalized homes start from the $360's.

Small-Town Living with Big-City Convenience

One of the top reasons people choose to live in Auburndale is the small-town vibes and slower pace of life this small city offers while remaining convenient to larger cities.

Our new homes at Otter Woods Estates are located near highways such as the Polk Parkway (4.5 miles), US-92 (2.9 miles), and I-4 (6 miles) providing easy access to nearby cities and employment centers:

  • Downtown Winter Haven - 7.6 miles
  • Downtown Lakeland - 13.5 miles
  • Downtown Orlando - 45 miles 

Walt Disney World is just 26 miles awayNot only that - the highway convenience means you are just a short drive from Central Florida's top theme parks and attractions such as LEGOLAND Florida Resort (12.5 miles), Walt Disney World Resort (26 miles), and Universal Orlando Resort (37 miles).

Or, head west on I-4 to the Tampa Bay area and take in a show at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts or Lightning game at Amalie Arena (51 miles), laugh out loud at the Improv Comedy Theater in Ybor City (49 miles), or spend the day in the sand and surf with Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach both about 75 miles or 1.5 hours away.

And, you don't have to leave Auburndale to enjoy fun in the sun - the city is home to sparkling lake waters and green spaces enjoyable year-round. Within three miles of home, you can get on the water at the Lake Alfred Boat Ramp, walk or bike the Auburndale TECO Trail, and put your toes or boat in the waters of Lake Ariana at Mac's Beach.

When you need a loaf of bread, your new home at Otter Woods Estates is only 3.5 miles from Publix and Winn-Dixie grocery stores on Havendale Blvd., and you can reach Wal-Mart, ALDI, or the brand-new Publix Super Market at Lake Juliana within 5 miles of home.

The new construction homes in Auburndale at Otter Woods Estate feature beautifully-designed interiors with 1,819 to 2,536 square feet of living space including 3 to 5 bedrooms and the features you’ve been looking for such as an open kitchen and living area, 2 or 3-car garage, and a covered lanai for your outdoor living enjoyment. Plan options and flexible-use rooms allow you to design your home to suit your needs. In addition, when you build your dream home at Otter Woods Estates, you will work with one of the professional designers at the Highland Homes Personal Selection Studio to select the colors, features, and finishes to personalize your dream home.

Thanks to the 1/4-acre homesites, you'll also enjoy a nice-sized yard with space between neighboring homes, and Otter Woods Estates is designed for each home to appreciate backyard privacy. Select homes offer a wooded property line, with others situated on ponds and open space, each providing privacy from adjacent communities and farm estates. And because all of the homes are located in a cul-de-sac, you will appreciate the extra privacy of living on a non-through street.

With just 22 homes offered here, don't miss out on your opportunity to build your personalized dream home in this exclusive community! Because of the limited opportunities, we've decided not to take up any of the beautiful sites with a model home and instead will utilize our model center at nearby Enclave at Lake Myrtle, located at 1256 Mezzavalle Way in Auburndale.
