Pringle Development is a custom home builder capable of making many changes. They had several models to choose from and were well known for their top-quality materials, workmanship, and good customer service. They were also considered to be one of the best builders in the active lifestyle business. All homes are single-story with screened lanais, 2-car garages; ranging from smaller two-bedroom 2 bath to larger three and four-bedroom homes that can exceed 3000 square feet and could have 3-car garages and pools. Most homes were stucco-block construction with shingle roofs and have that ranch-style Florida look. In the earlier stages they were frame homes with siding. Some lots enjoy looking out over the river, while others may have views of the lakes or golf course. 



Residents enjoy being just three to four miles from 2 major grocery stores with shopping centers. Also, they are close-by the Turnpike for easy access to hotels for all those out-of-town guests. Orlando, the airport, and theme parks are all within 40 minutes. The Lake Ridge Winery, Citrus Tower, and Mission Inn Resort are all within a short drive.

Situated between two major chains of lakes: Leesburg’s Harris chain, and the Clermont chain; there is no shortage of boating, fishing, waterfront dining, boat tours, or scenery. We’re also not far from either the Tampa, Orlando, or Sanford airports; because we’re within easy proximity to the Turnpike entrance. Also, don’t forget, lake county is a mecca for seniors. We’re blessed with a lot of top-quality medical facilities, theme parks, state and national parks, and crystal-clear springs. 

Clermont, a city of over 45,000, has it all: hills, lakes, shopping, bistros, breweries, hospital, with all the major chain stores represented. It is considered a bedroom community of Orlando. it is a straight shot right into town with easy access to Tampa’s beaches and professional sports. They also have Orlando Health South’s National Training Center.

With Leesburg only 8 miles North and having many of the same things as Clermont (shops, Lakes, restaurants, groceries, hospital, and mall), nothing you need is very far.
