Steve Costa, Associate at NAI Realvest Charles Wayne Commercial, negotiated the transaction on behalf of the seller. Costa worked closely with the City of Lake Helen and its Historical Board to ensure the buyer would be a good fit for the City’s architectural gateway standards that maintain an Old Florida feel.

Melbourne-based Vintage Estate Homes, the buyer who plans to build single-family homes in a variety of architectural styles on the finished lots, is building similar homes at Oakland Park in Winter Garden, Fla.

“The City of Lake Helen became convinced about the quality of Vintage Estate Homes’ designs, and they are now enthusiastic about seeing the subdivision move forward,” said Costa.

Vintage Estate Homes will be completing and opening models in the spring-summer of 2019 at the Woods of Lake Helen located off Main Street in the rural town southeast of DeLand.
