Convenience and safety is the name of the game at Forest Trace, a DeLand subdivision that is literally next door to Citrus Grove Elementary School. With sizable properties and more than ample square footage, this community has a lot to offer young families, or those of any age for that matter. We sat down with recent DeLand residents, the Martinez family, and asked why they enjoy living in Forest Trace.
One of the most sought after criteria for real estate in Florida is waterfront property. Although waterfront property is plentiful in our state, finding the right piece can be challenging, especially in a planned community.

Living in the heart of DeLand has it's advantages. Being close to Downtown, nearby schools and shopping can be highly sought after. Fortunately, there is an affordable option for families to take advantage of all of those convenininces within close proximatey.
DeLand is a wonderful place to raise a family as many will attest. Several communities are family friendly, allowing neighborhood kids to ride their bikes on sidewalks after school or starting pickup basketball games on the driveway. This is the life that many strive for, slower paced and relaxed. It is why many families move to DeLand and commute to Orlando as opposed to moving to the Greater Orlando area because of work.
If there is one thing that people love about living in DeLand, it's community. Neighbors can become more than just that, they can become friends. There is possibly no other residential development that embodies this better in DeLand than Victoria Commons.
Luxury homes sometimes seem they are so far out of reach for many. However, obtaining that dream home that is large enough for a homeowner with a growing family may be closer to a reality than you think. For those that are seeking a more luxurious DeLand community, the Timbers offers this and more combined with a location that is second-to-none. Although these homes are priced at a premium compared to other homes in the area, the value they bring will no doubt be a quality investment for years to come.
Those that have lived on or near the St. Johns River never forget its majesty. The slow moving black water has a lasting effect on the psyche, one that seems to carry away the anxieties of the day in the river’s northern current.
Convenience. That is the best word to describe DeLand’s Crystal Cove subdivision. This community may be one of the most convenient places to live in the city. It is located at the corner of McGregor Road and Crystal Oak Drive and is within walking distance of the shops of Country Club Corners that include Publix, Starbucks, and soon, Chick-fil-A. Access to Interstate 4 is less than ten minutes away and Downtown DeLand is about 5 minutes away.
One of the most scenic areas of DeLand is the beautiful Glenwood area. Its landscape is unmistakable as you travel along famed Grand Avenue. The beautiful live oak trees that line the road are enough to prompt feelings of serenity as if you were on a Sunday drive in the deep south. Aside from the landscape, Glenwood is the perfect place for a bike ride via the Spring-to-Spring trail or a great place to launch your boat to access the St. Johns River at Highland Park Fish Camp.
Located in south DeLand near the Saddlebrook community is another beautiful subdivision that complements the area well. Wellington Woods has only recently been completely built and offers upscale homes that are perfect for families or those that want to enjoy all of the local conveniences and attractions, as well as close proximity to beautiful Downtown DeLand.
