Nestled amongst mature hardwoods and lush terrain sits RedTail Golf and Country Club, Heathrow Country Estates. This 480-acre oasis features custom estate homes situated on half-acre home sites, each with the golf course or lush foliage as a backdrop.

With a championship golf course to a full-service restaurant, this distinctive community is in its final phase. Entering through the covered bridge, residents are struck by the impeccable streetscape and design of the community. 

Kelley Haggerty, new home consultant for Vintage Estate Homes, says the community is today’s foremost destination in the area for buyers seeking quality new homes. Two gated entrances extend both safety and easy access to residents. RedTail comprises 480 acres, with a total build out of 320 homes, the majority of which overlook the 18-hole, 7,152-yard, par 72 link-style golf course designed by Dave Harman.

“We have half-acre home sites, which is a novelty in the Central Florida market for new-home construction,” says Kelley, adding that many buyers migrate from Seminole County, especially Lake Mary and Heathrow.

Established in 1983, Vintage Estate Homes is a family business that has built a reputation for putting the customer above everything else. 

At RedTail, Vintage Estate Homes offers an array of floor plans – there are nine overall – from 2,500 to 5,000 square feet. Models range from three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths to six bedrooms with as many as five bathrooms. Eight models offer single stories with three elevations, while the Tayla features two elevations and the choice of a second level. Price points start in the low $400,000s.

An extensive list of included luxuries brings each home to life with state-of-the-art kitchens and enhanced design elements. Granite adorns countertops in baths and in the kitchens, where a stainless steel appliance package features a 36-inch cooktop, a microwave/oven combo, and a dishwasher. The tiled laundry room boasts granite counters, as well, accompanied by a stainless steel sink. Throughout the home, you’ll find eight-foot, six-panel interior decorative doors and a Kichler lighting package. Outside, coach lights frame the garage, while brick paver driveways and walkways guide your path. Optional amenities include outdoor kitchens, game rooms, and pools. A design consultant helps pull it all together. 

Location, Location, Location
Buyers love RedTail’s prime location with easy access to Maitland (15 minutes) and downtown Orlando (35 minutes) now that the area’s northern highway system stretches to Sorrento. Kelley calls State Roads 417 and 429 game changers. Sorrento’s shopping hub is only three miles away, while the host of Mount Dora restaurants can be reached in less than 10 minutes.

“People like that they don’t have to use I-4 now,” adds Kelley. “They just hop on SR 429.” 

Vintage Estate Homes currently entertains prospective buyers in the Talia model, a 3,200-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath home, with a new model opening in June. For those seeking a quick move in, the builder has one inventory home available, a 2,535-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath residence priced at $499,990 with a three-car garage, hardwood flooring, 10-foot ceilings, and a brick paver-adorned covered lanai.

For a limited time, all buyers in the RedTail community receive a full family golf membership for one year. Among the membership privileges are 30-day advanced tee-time reservations, complimentary range balls and golf-shoe cleaning, discounts at the pro shop, use of a locker, golf-bag storage, and parking. The golf course features two putting greens, the pro shop, full-time PGA professionals on staff, a 10-acre practice facility, and a driving range.

The golf course is complemented by a 15,000-square-foot clubhouse with a full-service restaurant and bar. RedTail residents enjoy access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, a spa services room, yoga and Pilates studio, tennis courts, and a resort-style pool. At this golf course community, it’s all about living alfresco.
