Tour a New Model Home Near Winter Haven, Florida

Home Builder with Highland Homes #CBC060256

Are your buyers looking for a Florida home that offers a small town address and setting reminiscent of Old Florida, yet provides easy access to city amenities and Central Florida attractions? Introducing new homes in Eagle Lake, FL, located just outside the Winter Haven city limits in the master-planned Eagle Hammock neighborhood!

The term Old Florida refers to places that are off the beaten path, full of natural beauty, and feel from a time before mega resorts. With a population of just around 3,000 people, multiple lakes, and no major interstates through the city (though it’s easy to get to them), Eagle Lake delivers this laid-back lifestyle. Yet, it is within easy reach of city conveniences and top theme park destinations with downtown Winter Haven situated just 4 miles away and Walt Disney World Resort only 30 miles from home. 

Our new construction homes in Eagle Lake are situated amongst open space, ponds, and nature conservation, in peaceful rural surroundings adjacent to the waters of Lake McLeod. While the location feels Old Florida, the homes are anything but and provide the conveniences of modern design and safety important to Florida homebuyers, along with resort-style community amenities.

Let’s take a peek at the new model home now open at Eagle Hammock and why homes here offer an amazing - and affordable - choice for your Winter Haven area homebuyers!

About the Model Home Design

new model home in Eagle Lake, FL community

When decorating this model home, our professional design team chose to combine high-end finishes with farmhouse-style furnishings and a little country flair, to suit the rural, Old Florida setting.

“In this model home, we designed it to feel like a fresh breath of air every time you enter,” said Stacey Antonakas-Perez, Design Center Manager and lead model decorator. “And, we selected most of the furniture from Rooms To Go because they offer attainable furnishings that give this home a lived-in feel.”

Modern, Open Living Area

The Parker’s living area is open to the kitchen and dining cafe, and large enough for multiple seating arrangements, a large entertainment center, end tables, and a coffee table.

Many homeowners of the Parker tell us the kitchen is their favorite room - Not only does it include a large island, walk-in pantry, and ample recessed lighting set in the airy volume ceiling, but Eagle Lake homebuyers have the opportunity to personalize their dream kitchen.

In this model home, the designers chose 36-inch tall white shaker-style cabinets – our most popular cabinet option, and an included feature at Eagle Hammock – along with stunning Cambria solid-surface countertops, Samsung stainless steel appliances, and light-colored vinyl plank flooring.

Four Bedrooms

The Parker has four bedrooms including a large and luxurious owner’s suite with:

  • 15’-4” x 15’-9” dimensions;
  • A walk-in closet with linen shelves;
  • A luxurious en-suite bath with dual vanities, a spa-like soaking tub, a decorative tiled shower with a glass enclosure, and a private toilet.

  • A bedroom ideal for a lover of country music;
  • A home office, illustrating the flexible usage of bedrooms.

Outdoor Living Space

Many homebuyers note that outdoor living space is important in their home search - and the quiet setting of Eagle Hammock certainly invites getting outside! The Parker model includes both a porch on the front of the home and a lanai on the rear. In addition, a two-car garage houses vehicles and outdoor toys.

Living at Eagle Hammock

We touched at the beginning of this article about the amazing small-town setting just outside of Winter Haven. Eagle Hammock is also within minutes of parks, boat ramps, schools, and dining, and offers its own resort-style amenities within the community:

  • Swimming pool
  • Poolside cabana & clubhouse

why does the garage have glass sliders?  caught my eye and looks odd, is it just on the model?

Hi Don! Yes, the glass storefront is our model home - purchased homes have a normal garage door with carriage style hardware. Apologies for the confusion - I'll add a caption on the photo!
