Central Florida Realtors, we have a great community for your buyers seeking a waterfront home located in peaceful surroundings convenient to recreation, city amenities, and Orlando attractions!

The Lakes in Lake Alfred, Florida offers a dream opportunity to build on the famed Chain of Lakes, and a brand-new model home is now open to showcase the luxurious and low-maintenance features included in homes in the current phase of this exclusive community.

Lake Alfred sits on the north border of Winter Haven, Florida, and is a small city of about 6,000 people.

Situated on the shores of Lake Haines, our new homes in Lake Alfred offer peaceful nature views with waterfront homesites on the lake, a canal, and ponds within the community. Let's take a peek at the new model and what your buyers can expect in homes in this desirable Central Florida community!

New Model Home at The Lakes

The brand-new model home showcases the popular, open layout Shelby home plan and the luxe finishes included in homes at The Lakes. Boasting 2,029 square feet of living space, the Shelby comes in configurations with either four bedrooms or three bedrooms plus a den and also includes two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and a large covered lanai.

“The Shelby is simply the perfect layout," says Stacey Antonakos-Perez, Highland Homes' Design Center Manager and model decorator. "Every room in the Shelby is an ideal size, from the kitchen and café to the lanai!”

Inspired by this community’s lakefront setting, Stacey and the design team chose to decorate the model in a modern coastal style.

Open-Concept Living Space

The open-concept layout of the Shelby features a spacious gathering room integrated with the kitchen and sunny dining café, and is finished with low-maintenance luxury vinyl plank flooring in a bleached-wood look that suits the coastal décor style.

White cabinets provide a versatile base for decor and are topped with soft-white colored Cambria quartz countertops, and accented by a white subway-tiled backsplash and warm-bronze cabinet hardware and light fixtures.

The model also showcases some of the gourmet kitchen features included in every new home at The Lakes:

  • 36-inch staggered cabinets with crown moulding
  • Granite and quartz countertop selections
  • A stainless-steel double-bowl undermount sink with a pull-down faucet
  • A full-suite of Samsung stainless steel appliances

Outdoor Living Space

A lanai provides outdoor living on the new Lake Alfred model home

As you know, outdoor living is a must-have for many Florida homebuyers. With many homes at The Lakes situated on open spaces, ponds, or the exclusive lakefront and canal-front sites, it becomes even more important to have outdoor space to enjoy the beautiful views, fresh air, and lake breeze.

Because of this, every new home at The Lakes includes a covered lanai. On the Shelby model, the lanai showcases an optional screened enclosure. 

Space for Relaxation

Every new home at The Lakes includes a spacious owner's suite. In the Shelby model, the suite is tucked away in the back of the home and includes an elegant double-door entry, tray ceiling, large walk-in wardrobe, and en-suite bath with dual vanities with drawer and cabinet storage, a convenient linen closet, a large tiled shower, and a closeted toilet.

Two secondary bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with dual vanities and a private tub and toilet area, and a half-bath is located between the foyer and the gathering room.

Flexible Living Space

As we mentioned above, the Shelby comes with four bedrooms, or the option to build with 3 bedrooms plus a den – the option we selected for this model home based on the popularity among our Central Florida homeowners to have a flex-use room.
