Beacon Lake welcomes hundreds to Tapas & Tours II progressive luncheon


More than 100 guests recently attended the Tapas & Tours II luncheon and community tour at Beacon Lake, the lakefront lifestyle community in northern St. Johns County.

An award-winning event, the Tapas & Tours luncheon set the course for guests to tour the community’s new Lake House Amenity and Fitness Center and five decorated model homes. At Beacon Lake, Dream Finders Homes and Mattamy Homes are building coastal-inspired homes featuring front porches and open floor plans.

The progressive gourmet tapas luncheon began with hors d’oeuvres at the Lake House and continued with small plates in the Mattamy and Dream Finders’ model homes. Guests enjoyed complimentary shuttle services, giveaways and prize drawings.

“We were thrilled to once again welcome a record number of guests to our special event and we appreciate the positive comments we received,” said Bruce J. Parker, managing director for BBX Capital Real Estate, Beacon Lake’s master developer. “With our Lake House and resort-style lakefront amenities, award-winning home designs and a welcoming neighborhood environment, homebuyers are discovering there is so much to love at Beacon Lake.”

The Lake House is the heart of the Beacon Lake community. Anchored by a developing 43-acre paddle-friendly lake and nestled within 358 acres of nature preserve, the 8,200-square-foot Lake House is a gathering place for entertainment and get-togethers as well as a place for fitness and relaxation. The Lake House includes a state-of-the-art fitness center with cardio and strength training equipment, free weights, spin bikes and a fitness studio. The Culinary Studio and Demonstration kitchen is available for catered events, cooking classes and chef demonstrations. 

Outside, there are opportunities to cool off at the Splash Park, fun pool, junior Olympic swimming pool or lakeside sand beach. Other amenities include the Crew House, tennis courts, multipurpose playing field, bark park, playground, multipurpose paths and more. 

Beacon Lake is within the St. Johns County Public School District and zoned for Ocean Palms Elementary School, Alice B. Landrum Middle School and Allen D. Nease High School for the 2018-2019 school year. 

Final opportunities are underway in Beacon Lake’s Phase I, where the community’s builders, Dream Finders Homes and Mattamy Homes, are offering single-family home designs ranging in size from 1,600 square feet to more than 3,500 square feet, and priced from the mid-$200,000s to $500,000s. Beacon Lake’s Phase II is coming soon.

Located on the south side of County Road 210 between U.S. Route 1 and Interstate 95, Beacon Lake offers residents a central location near shopping, dining, employment centers and area beaches. For more information, visit
