MOUNT DORA– Medallion Home’s Lakes of Mount Dora community won the “Best in Show” award with the top overall score in the 2018 Parade of Homes by the Home Builders Association of Lake-Sumter. Two Medallion Home models in the 55+ active adult community also won “First Prize” in the annual competition.
“We are grateful that our colleagues in the building industry recognize the excellence of our carefully designed homes, which showcase the finest in Florida lifestyles,” said Andy Kern, VP of Sales of Medallion Home, the award-winning Sarasota-based family builder. “Since 1984, our homes have set the standard for high-quality construction and interior finishes and furnishings.
The 2018 Parade of Homes was held from Feb. 24 through March 4, and included more than 20 entries from the area’s top builders. Top honors went to Lakes of Mount Dora, which was named one of the “Top 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the United States” by Where To Retire magazine.
Two models at Lakes of Mount Dora were also honored by the home builders association: the Barbados 2800, a 4-bed, 3-bath home with 2,400 square feet of living space and a 2-car garage; and the Palm Island, a 3-bed, 2-bath home with 2,620 square feet and a 2-car garage.
Lakes of Mount Dora features 950 single-family homes up to 3,252 square feet priced from the mid $200s. The spacious two-, three- and four-bedroom homes have two or three baths and two- or three-car garages. Most homesites are waterfront or water view, and able to suit a wide variety of home designs.
Amenities include an 18,000-square-foot clubhouse, with fitness studio, library, and an arts and crafts room that hosts dozens of community clubs and associations. Outside, there’s a resort-style pool, a lap pool, fire pit, tennis courts, multi-purpose sporting courts, walking and exercise trails, and ecologically friendly landscaping. There’s also plenty of room for RV and boat storage.
