Beacon Lake announces construction of master-planned community in Northern St. Johns County


BBX Capital Real Estate, a division of BBX Capital Corporation, recently announced that construction has begun on the entry monument at Beacon Lake, BBX Capital Real Estate's master-planned community in Northern St. Johns County.

Dicky Smith & Co. is the general contractor, and Basham & Lucas Design Group is the landscape architect for Beacon Lake’s main entry. Pre-construction sales are underway.

“We are excited to begin construction of the Beacon Lake entry monument and bring to this area an exceptional new community,” said Bruce J. Parker, managing director for BBX Capital Real Estate. “Beacon Lake appeals to a wide range of home buyers, seeking a remarkable neighborhood environment and today’s most sought-after lifestyle amenities.”

The entry monument will showcase coastal vernacular architectural style using natural elements, colors and proportions to complement the surrounding landscape. The design team drew inspiration for Beacon Lake’s coastal style from the community’s lake amenities.

Beacon Lake’s master plan calls for 1,280 single-family homes and 196 townhomes on approximately 630 acres, more than half of which consists of a dedicated wetland preservation, enhancements and restoration areas. Anchored by a paddle-friendly 43-acre lake, Beacon Lake will offer opportunities for outdoor and indoor recreation.

Neighborhood amenities include an expansive community clubhouse overlooking Beacon Lake with a half-mile view to the southern shoreline. Plans for the clubhouse include spacious entertainment and dining areas inside as well as covered porches and a fire pit outside. The Crew House will provide kayak, canoe and paddleboard storage and a launch area. Residents will also have access to a junior Olympic-size lap pool, a splash park and fun pool, tennis courts and play fields. The fitness center is planned to offer cardio and strength training areas including aerobics, spinning, free weights and a yoga studio.

Beacon Lake’s homebuilders, Dream Finders and Mattamy Homes, are offering a selection of home designs in the community’s coastal vernacular architectural style. New homes will range in size from 1,800 square feet to more than 4,000 square feet, and will be priced from the high $200s to $500,000. Phase one includes 43-and 63-foot-wide home sites offered by Dream Finders and 53-and 73-foot-wide home sites offered by Mattamy Homes.

Located in Northern St. Johns County, on the south side of County Road 210 between U.S. Route 1 and Interstate 95, Beacon Lake is near shopping, dining, employment centers and area beaches. The community is currently located within St. Johns County Public School District.

Land development of Beacon Lake started last year, and model homes are currently scheduled to open in early 2018.  For more information on Beacon Lake, visit
