Before a model has even been built, more than three dozen homes have already been sold at Lakewood Park in DeLand, the builder reported recently.
Dream Finders Homes said that 37 new homes had been sold as of this month.
Situated along Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Beltway on the east side of DeLand, the first-phase 200-plus homesite development of Lakewood Park is nestled into an untouched area between State Road 44 on the north and East Taylor Road on the south.
The DeLand City Commission last August gave final approval for a 300-lot first phase of Lakewood Park. At build-out, Lakewood Park will be a 433-unit, 198-acre housing development on the southeast corner of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Beltway and the planned Beresford Avenue extension. The units include homes on 40-, 50- and 65-foot-wide lots.
Phase one of the project will occupy about 75 acres. Lakewood Park’s preliminary plat was approved by the DeLand City Commission in October 2020.
A future phase of the development’s construction will connect Lakewood Park to the future extension of Beresford Avenue to the King beltway.
The single-family home community offers five floor plans from the company’s “Dream Series,” according to Gerry Boeneman, president of Dream Finders Homes’ Central Florida division.
“We think this is a fantastic location for homebuyers with Stetson University, the historic downtown area and all its dining and shopping offerings just a few minutes away,” he said in a news release, adding that access to State Road 44 and Interstate 4 are even closer.
The one-story floor plans — which range from 1,407 to more than 2,100 square feet — have either three bedrooms and two baths or four bedrooms and two baths, Boeneman said. Prices start in the high-$300,000s.
While the models are under construction, he said, sales are being handled from Dream Finders Homes’ Fernanda Place community at 1006 Landing Lane in Deltona.
