The neighborhoods will feature whole ownership, single-family homes designed for casual living. Pedestrian pathways and footbridges, parks and gardens are planned throughout the community.
The Summerhouse is designed based on direct input from potential homeowners and will be centrally located for easy access.
Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney WorldResort and its Tom Fazio designed golf course, is to be located in close proximity to the neighborhoods.
Creating a unique place requires attention to even the most subtle detail. Residents will see special Disney touches throughout Golden Oak,down to the naming of the neighborhoods. Golden Oak’s Carolwood is named after Walt Disney’s backyard railroad. Kimball Trace originates from Ward Kimball, one of Walt Disney’s original animators. The Silverbrook name comes from Silver Lake, the location of Walt and Roy Disney’s first large studio in California.
A limited offering of eight premium custom-home sites (63-70), all generously sized at approximately three-quarters acre each. Residents here will enjoy serene natural, golf course or water views.
The natural preserves surrounding this lovely neighborhood offer a scenic and private setting. At up to three-quarters acre in size, each of Carolwood’s seventeen grand estate custom-home sites (56-62, 71-80) can amply accommodate a home for multi-generational families.
Here, the natural and social come together beautifully on nineteen homesites of approximately one-half acre each. Residents can savor moments of quiet repose alongside conservation areas or water features, or easily stroll to community amenities and activities at the Summerhouse.
A charming Tuscan-inspired village with custom courtyard homes, Kimball Trace caters to those with an enthusiasm for resort living. This intimate collection of creatively designed homes on thirty-seven home sites approximately one-quarter acre in size, is centrally located within neighborly reach of the Summerhouse.
