Project Description

Located on land that once was the Triple E Ranch, this Central Florida "front porch" community offers the charm and natural beauty of Old Florida.

No home sites will be developed on the shores of Harmony's two sandy-bottom private lakes, reclaimed water is available to every home for lawn maintenance; more trees are planted on the site than removed; all outdoor light fixtures are aimed downward to minimize light pollution; and only 30 percent of the vast property will actually be developed. The rest of the land will remain forever wild, save for unpaved footpaths that will follow the natural contours of the woods and wetlands.
