North Tampa is a suburban area that is quickly becoming more and more metropolitan. Just 20 minutes from downtown Tampa, and convenient to shopping, restaurants, theaters, and major highways, North Tampa has a little something for everyone.
Avila is one of North Tampa’s premiere addresses. Avila is a luxurious upscale gated community in North Tampa offering tranquil oak tree canopied lots, lakes, modern conveniences, and dwellings ranging from spacious to palatial. Avila Golf and Country Club offers gated 24-hour manned security, a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course, fitness center, swimming facilities, and tennis courts.
Carrollwood is also a North Tampa suburban neighborhood with urban conveniences. Carroll wood was developed in the 1960’s, and had a construction boom in the 70’s & 80’s, and is now undergoing a resurgence of renovations and new construction homes such as those found around Lake Magdalene and in The Retreat at Carrollwood. A blend of single family homes, condos, and town homes, Carrollwood’s real estate has long been a more affordable alternative to its neighboring luxury communities like Avila, while still maintaining its charm with tree lined streets and lake front homes. Carrollwood Country Club offers golfing, tennis, fitness center, condo resort, swimming & dining.
Forest Hills is a suburban golf course neighborhood just north of Seminole Heights and south of Lake Magdalene in North Tampa. Forest Hills’ Babe Zaharias golf course was established in 1926 and purchased by Babe Zaharias in 1949, and real estate development began in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Forest Hills’ real estate offers mid-century homes on large lots, many lakefront or with golf course views at very moderate prices.
