Site Development Underway and Home Builder Named for New Single-family Home Community in Tavares

TAVARES – Plans for Elmwood, a 115-homesite community off of David Walker Drive in Tavares, are moving along smoothly, according to developer Jerome Henin.

“We’ve selected Ciraco Underground of Belleview to handle the site development and D.R. Horton has been named as the community’s preferred builder,” he said.

Henin – founder and CEO of The Henin Group – purchased the 32-acre parcel in 2020 for $2 million with a vision of providing housing that would appeal to the demographic of homebuyers moving into that area of Lake County.

“We’re confident the 1,800- to 2,200-square-foot homes that D.R. Horton will be offering at Elmwood will be well received by prospective buyers,” Henin said.

Construction of the subdivision started in late December with platting of the community and the development of lots set to begin in July, Henin said, adding that the three- and four-bedroom models – priced starting in the low $300,000s – should be open in September.
