RedTail at Heathrow Golf Community

RedTail at Heathrow Golf Community Revives Dream of Country Estate Homes with Luxury Golf Course

ORLANDO - RedTail, a Heathrow golf community, located west of Heathrow in Sorrento, is reviving the tradition of luxury country club homes in Central Florida, starting at $399,999.

Richard D. Bavec, project general manager at RedTail, said the award-winning RedTail Golf Club, a links-style layout designed by Dave Harman and dotted with century-old oak trees and azaleas, ranks as one of the region's finest courses.

Brentwood Custom Homes, one of RedTail's "Builder Partners," has a four-bedroom, three-bath luxury home available for sale at RedTail with 2,415 square feet of living space priced at $399,999.

Luxury homes at RedTail are selling, Bavec said. Recently, a custom built, five-bedroom home with a six-car garage overlooking the tenth green, sold for $1.55 million.

"The luxury homes market is less affected by the real estate downturn compared to the rest of the housing market," Bavec said. "Luxury golf estates, oceanfront condominiums and Manhattan apartments probably rank among the most desired examples of luxury lifestyles and we're beginning to see a strong comeback here at RedTail," Bavec said.

There are 24 home sites available in the current phase at RedTail. The community's covered bridge entrance is located along SR 46A just north of SR 46 in Lake County. The new home sales center opens Monday through Saturday at 9 a.m. and on Sunday at 11 a.m.
