There are more lakes in Land O’ Lakes than anywhere else in Tampa Bay. And, one of the area’s most desirable is Lake Padgett, a spring-fed, 200-acre lake that is home to an exclusive Cardel Homes community.
Cardel is the newest homebuilder on Lake Padgett, which has been home to beautiful waterfront homes for over 50 years because of its peaceful cypress-lined shores, and stunning sunrises and sunsets.
Just south of Cardel’s community, The Enclave At Lake Padgett on the lake’s western shore, are fun boating destinations that have opened in the past few years.
This includes The Tiki Cove, which has a dock for boaters to tie up to, live music and beach volleyball games on the weekends.
Even closer to The Enclave is another waterfront destination, In The Loop Brewery, where boaters anchor close to the beach and planning for a dock is underway. This popular local spot has an on-site brewery, tap and tasting room, and a huge outdoor deck and beer garden overlooking the lake.
“Most lakeside communities offer homeowners traditional waterfront views and boating, but living on Lake Padgett offers even more, because it has destinations you can easily boat to,” said Brian Phillips, vice president of sales and marketing at Cardel Homes.
There are only a handful of homesites remaining on the lake, which is why Phillips is so excited about The Enclave At Lake Padgett.
“It’s almost unheard of to find new home construction on Lake Padgett. It’s exciting as a builder to be offering such beautiful, large lots in such a premium location,” said Phillips.
Many people who discover The Enclave At Lake Padgett say it’s one of the best kept secrets in Land O’ Lakes.
“Part of this community’s intrigue is that one would never expect to find such a gem tucked away in the heart of Land O’ Lakes,” said Phillips.
Conveniently located off Land O’ Lakes Boulevard (U.S. 41), just two miles north of State Road 54, the secluded entrance to The Enclave assures residents of privacy that they will share with just a handful of other homeowners.
All of The Enclave’s homesites can be permitted for docks that are large enough for fishing, waterski and pontoon boats. And, unlike other developments on Lake Padgett, none of its docks are shared between homeowners.
“This prestigious community has just eight large homesites available — all very private and with no CDD fees,” said Phillips.
In addition to its waterfront living, The Enclave is just 15 minutes from Wesley Chapel’s shopping and dining destinations, including Tampa Premium Outlets, The Shops of Wiregrass and the newly opened Cypress Creek Town Center.
Cardel Homes is offering three, one-story plans at The Enclave, all with tile roofs and brick paver driveways as standard features. Homes range from 3,000 to 4,260 square feet, and offer four bedrooms, three or four baths and three-car garages.
The St. Lucia model home is ready now for a quick move-in. This stunning home is 3,336 square feet with four bedrooms, three baths, and a large front porch and covered lanai.
The home is on a wooded lot, and has a large front porch and covered lanai in the back. An oversized dock is just steps away from the backyard, and is perfect to dock a boat and enjoy the natural setting.
The St. Lucia inventory home, including its waterfront dock, is listed at just $650,000. If you prefer to choose your homesite and select a floor plan, colors and finishes, a Cardel home in The Enclave begins at $494,900.
“The Enclave At Lake Padgett is a perfect community for families wanting to move up to an exclusive, private, lakefront community with no CDD,” said Phillips. “It offers the best of both worlds —all the recreation and things to do on Lake Padgett, with the convenience of being close to so many shopping and dining options.”
