If you are looking to buy a new home in the Tampa area, you may want to take a look at nearby Land O’ Lakes, Florida. There are several new neighborhoods being developed there today, including Connerton. Land O’ Lakes, located in Pasco county is one of the fastest growing areas in Florida and new homes are selling as soon as they are built. Come visit Connerton, a new home community in Land O’ Lakes, Florida.
History of Connerton
The land where the Connerton community now sits was owned for generations by the Conner family. It covers over 8,000 acres between State Road 51, U.S. 41 and Ehren Cutoff. It was a working cattle ranch for many years before it was sold in the early 2000’s. The goal agreed upon by both parties was to preserve as much of the beautiful natural land as possible during the development process. The initial development called for up to 15,000 homes and three golf courses but it has since been revised to a far more modest plan which includes 8,600 homes with retail space and schools. In order to preserve a large tract of land, the State of Florida purchased 3,000 acres in 2003 to be managed as conservation land. This will allow both Connerton and local residents enjoy the natural beauty of the land at Connerton in perpetuity.
Today Connerton, designated as a New Town, is growing the neighborhood with newly constructed homes built alongside a wilderness preserve. It is a master planned community that features many family-friendly amenities. There is a 10,000 square foot clubhouse that serves as a social hub as well as a sports and recreation center. The ConnerTown Café is housed within the clubhouse so it is convenient for residents to grab a quick bite to eat. Plus, there is a resort-style pool with a waterpark, playgrounds, parks and an outdoor amphitheater. Multiple trails, boardwalks and pathways lead through the development and wind around the conservation and preserves. You can see a bounty of wildlife here including blue herons, wood storks, sandhill cranes, otters and much more. The Southwest Florida Management District oversees the preserve to ensure that it remains a sanctuary for all sorts of wildlife.
The Connerton community is zoned for Pasco county’s top-rated middle and high schools and the Connerton Elementary school is located on-site. As part of its master plan, there will be retail and office space available to make it easier for residents to live and work in a wholly self-sustaining new town. This well-thought out and expansive community design has won many awards, as have the new home builders that are working to construct the homes within the development.
