What the People Are Asking Us About Lakeside at Waterman Village, the Top New Retirement Community in Central Florida

May 25, 2021

With construction well underway and several buildings and residences taking shape around gleaming Lake Margaret, interested folks are asking our team a lot of great questions about Lakeside at Waterman Village. Here are detailed answers to a few of the most common questions we’ve received recently, which we hope are helpful as you continue your search for the top retirement community in central Florida.

1) What is the expected opening date for Lakeside at Waterman Village?

Construction of this brand-new, amenity-rich neighborhood is proceeding ahead of schedule thanks to the favorable weather Florida has had this year. Per our experienced construction team members, their hope is that we welcome the first group of Lakeside residents in late 2021 or at the very beginning of 2022.

For now, you can get a real-time look at all of the exciting progress by checking out our live construction camera feed!

Much still needs to happen and we can’t control the weather, but we’re confident that our grand opening will take place at the tail end of 2021. And when the time comes to welcome everyone to Mount Dora’s newest gem, our pre-opening pricing will run out. That makes now the ideal time to visit us for an appointment to learn which of our stylish and luxurious residences are still available.

2) What types of homes are left, and can I still make customizations?

Even though more than 100 individuals and couples have already reserved their brand-new homes, a few of our most desirable floor plans and locations still remain. Between our Lakeside Grand building, Garden Home villas and lovely Lakehouse residences, you are sure to find the perfect fit. Availability varies among all the offerings as new neighbors continue to join, so contact us for the most current update.

As for the chance to customize and personalize your home, construction has advanced to the point that most personalization options are no longer available. But don’t fret! For every unreserved home, our team has made distinct and on-trend selections from a palette of designer finishes to ensure that each is unique. Plus, our homes all offer generously sized, smart layouts that will allow you to bring those meaningful possessions along to help your space tell your story.

3) When it comes to downsizing and moving, will I receive assistance?

If you’re already thinking about making the move to Lakeside or have gotten a head start on this exciting step by starting to downsize, great work! Now, you may be pondering the logistics of such a move.

Fortunately, you don’t have to do it alone. This is perhaps the most exciting move of your life, and we are here to help make sure that you can focus on the fun of it all!
