Dream Finders Homes Now Selling on Deer Island in Lake County

TAVARES – Did you ever dream of owning your own little slice of island paradise, but don’t want to break the bank or leave Central Florida? You can now turn that dream into a reality with a new home built by Dream Finders Homes on secluded Deer Island in Tavares.

The national home builder is offering 28 estate- and 22 villa-sized lots on the lakefront peninsula near Mount Dora, according to Gerry Boeneman, President of Dream Finders Homes’ Central Florida division.

“We’re excited to offer several of our popular luxury and signature series floor plans in this unique community,” he said.

Priced from the high $200,000's, plans range from 1,850 to 3,628 square feet and offer three to five bedrooms and two to three-and-a-half baths. Several plans have side-entry or tandem garages.

In addition to new one- and two-story homes by Dream Finders Homes, the 400-acre peninsula, which is surrounded by Lake Dora and Lake Beauclair, is home to the Deer Island Country Club and privately-owned championship golf course designed by Joe Lee. Other amenities include a resort-style pool, tennis and pickleball courts, and a boat dock.

Convenient to shopping and dining in historic Mount Dora, Deer Island offers beautiful lakefront properties with views of horse farms and citrus groves, as well as sailboats, pontoon boats and seaplanes, Boeneman said.

A new Dream Finders Homes’ model – The Lexington – is expected to open this summer, he said. During construction, sales are being conducted at the Deer Island clubhouse, 18000 Eagles Way, Tavares.
