Getting to know Valrico, Florida

The town of Valrico started out as a region filled with cotton plantations.  It was once known as Long Pond but later derived its name from a Spanish phrase meaning “Valley of Gold.”  One interesting point is that there is no other place named Valrico in the entire United States.  In 1890, there was an influx of immigrants that moved to the area after the completion of the Central and Peninsular Railroad.  The town grew in fits and starts throughout the years with population growth and declines coinciding with ups and downs of the economy.  Today it is a quiet but fast growing suburb of Tampa and is located within Hillsborough county.  According to the 2010 census, there were 36,975 people residing in the town.  Valrico has lots of local amenities, good school systems and enjoys a higher than average per capita than the rest of the state of Florida.  With its top public schools, low crime rates and percentage of owner-occupied single family homes, there is no surprise that this community is being sought after by young families and executives.

Legacy Ridge Neighborhood in Valrico

It is a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of two existing residential neighborhoods.  Legacy Ridge is divided into two distinct neighborhoods with each offering executive-style new homes.  The larger of the two neighborhoods has fifty-seven homesites, a gated entrance and an open 2.5-acre park (which also includes a dog park).  Complimenting this will be a cul-de-sac enclave made up of 10 distinct homesites.
