Lake Mary Life publisher Sheila Kramer shares why she's excited to downsize and move into a new home in Lake Mary's newest development – Griffin Park – the city's highly anticipated midtown featuring new residential homes and the Griffin Farm Town Center.
The very moment that Griffin Park in Lake Mary became a glimmer in the eye of city officials, I started packing up items to donate to The Sharing Center and hauling extra bags of trash to the curb.
As longtime empty nesters, my husband Michael and I had been looking for a reason to move out of our 3,500 square-foot home that once housed the offices of Lake Mary Life. The fact that David Weekley Homes was selected to build the residential portion of the development project was icing on the cake for us.
Location, location, location – that’s the mantra of any real-estate purchase. For us native Manhattanites, having our future home conveniently located right across the street from where we work truly makes this a live-work-and-play move that has us both reminiscing about living a stone’s throw from restaurants, shops, and a much anticipated, yet not yet named, grocery store.
Almost a year ago at the groundbreaking ceremony for the entire development, I told city officials that Michael and I wanted to be the first family to move into Griffin Park. Now, after anxiously awaiting and pouring over newly released floor plans, I’m even more sure that this is the right move for us.
We don’t take moves like this lightly. We lived in the Crossings in Lake Mary in one home for 17 years, and then in our current home for more than 10. This move is going to be our last – it’s going to be our best – and it’s going to be perfect!
