E. Tarawood Blvd, Floral City, Florida 34436
Quiet 55+ Community of Tarawood in Floral City, Florida Has Single Story, Single Family Homes and a Swimming Pool
Located off of South Florida Avenue in Floral City, Tarawood is a small, low key 55+ community with single story, single family homes made from cinder bricks. The development started out in the 1990s and has a distinctly rural character.
Part of this rural vibe comes from the fact that the community was platted for 175 homes but only has about 60 or so residences. They are well-kept and most have a nice sized yard with mature landscaping. Garages face the street and there are no sidewalks. Flat open space surrounds the development.
Home prices begin below $100,000 and top out in the low-$200,000s. Please verify this with a Realtor as prices may change.
The clubhouse is at the heart of Tarawood and has a swimming pool, a spa, a Jacuzzi, a dining area, a stage and a small kitchen.
Tarawood does not have a dedicated website. Go to tinyurl.com/zz2sbex for listings.
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 golf courses, more 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.
