Tucked Along the Shores of Little Lake Harris in Central Florida, Gated 55+ Royal Harbor Features Single Story Homes (Some with a Private Boat Dock), a Clubhouse, a Full-Time Activities Director and More
Royal Harbor, located in Tavares, Florida, is a gated 55+ waterfront community with nearly 800 single family homes. The development was built from the late-1990s to 2008 and sits along the shores of Little Lake Harris.
All homes are single story with a light colored exterior and an attached, forward-facing garage. Floor plans have approximately 1,000 square feet to 2,700 square feet with two to four bedrooms and one to three baths. About 40 homes actually back to the water. All of these have a pier with a private boat slip at the end. The rest of the properties line lanes that meander through large grassy areas sprinkled with trees and ponds. Farm land and wilderness abut Royal Harbor to the east, north and west, giving it a pastoral quality.
Prices start in the high-$100,000s. Please verify this price with a Realtor as it is bound to change over time. Some homes are also for lease.
Residents enjoy a waterfront clubhouse with a library, a ballroom, a fitness center, an arts and crafts studio and more. A swimming pool, a spa, tennis courts and walking paths await outside. A full-time activities director ensures that social events are never in short supply.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting snowbirds to the state in the late 19th century. Retirees continue to flock to the state. It's not hard to see why tourism has become the leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands spread across 10 acres.
The state has 1,250 more golf courses than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.
Florida, particularly the Keys and the Gulf Coast, were struck by Category 4 Hurricane Irma in early September, 2017. Towns will rebuild, perhaps this time with climate change in mind, making them safer and better equipped to handle major hurricanes going forward.
