Colonnades Homes

Colonnades was developed by Florida Leisure Communities in 1985 and was originally intended to be a mobile home park.  The community was started with the sale of 45 mobile homes.  The developer then built and finished the community with another 315 site built homes featuring 8 popular floor plans including Meadowbrook II, Biltmore, and Glenwood.  Near the end of 1990's,  Florida Leisure Communities had built one of the nicest affordable retirement communities in central Florida.  FLC also developed a sister community in north Lakeland called Highland Fairways featuring an 18 hole golf course.  Later, FLC would develop a third gated subdivision, Carillon Lakes, designed to attract a slightly younger group of homeowners.  See Colonnades homes for sale.  Interested in other 55+ communities in Lakeland?
