Plans filed for estate homes expansion of Lake Nona Golf & Country Club

Bob Moser

Tavistock Development Company has filed plans for the next expansion phase of estate homes at its Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, growing the gated community southward with exclusive access to a future man-made lagoon. 

The developer filed a Specific Parcel Master Plan in late May with the City of Orlando for the first phase of development on 102 acres (Lot 2 within Parcel 10) for 54 estate homes.

The property lies north of Lake Nona Boulevard, south of the lake named Lake Nona, and between the planned 250-room Lake Nona Resort and its 11-acre Crystal Lagoon, and the property where KPMG is now building a new 800,000-square-foot corporate training center

A gated entrance off of Wellspring Drive will provide access on the west to the private community, and an extension of Cromwell Road will branch from the property's northeast corner up into the existing Golf & Country Club community, which today has about 300 luxury homes.

Forty-nine of the new lots are proposed as 70 feet wide, with the remaining five as 85-foot-wide lots. 

Tavistock began laying the groundwork for this Golf & Country Club expansion back in the fall of 2016, when it filed to amend the property's Planned Development zoning. 

Owners of the new country club homes will have access to the eastern half of the Crystal Lagoon with a "Lake Club" amenity on its beachfront, according to current marketing materials from Lake Nona Realty. Luxury condominiums are anticipated for a second phase on the remainder of this property, which would lie closer to the lagoon shore.

Tavistock also filed a Preliminary Plat for two residential parcels and a future development tract within Lake Nona Parcel 10b. It helps position for future plan submittals for condominium buildings and recreation tracts. 

Tavistock declined to comment on its timeline for construction of the Lake Nona Resort, or groundbreaking for the new homes in the country club expansion. 

KMPG has vertical construction underway on the adjacent 54.5-acre site for its corporate training center. The company and DPR Construction have completed the property's retention pond and wall at the entrance, has multiple cranes mobilized on site, foundation construction in progress with footings complete, and concrete column footwork for the first and second floors complete, said spokeswoman Sherry Magee. 

Donald W. McIntosh Associates is civil engineer and surveyor on the project, while AECOM is the ecological sciences consultant.
