Lake House Amenity Center under construction at Beacon Lake


Construction on the Lake House Amenity and Fitness Center is underway at Beacon Lake, with completion and grand opening slated for early 2019.

“The community is quickly taking shape, and we are very excited about the growth that is already beginning to occur at Beacon Lake,” said Bruce J. Parker, managing director for BBX Capital Real Estate, Beacon Lake’s master developer. “We are moving full speed ahead here at Beacon Lake. The Lake House is going to be magnificent, and when it’s finished, it will be a tremendous draw for potential homebuyers as well as a wonderful source of recreation and social activities for residents.”

Anchored by a 43-acre paddle-friendly lake and nestled within 358 acres of nature preserve, the new master-planned community in northern St. Johns County offers a lakefront lifestyle and family-friendly amenities. The 8,200-square-foot Lake House Amenity and Fitness Center will be the heart of Beacon Lake and home to the Splash Park, fun pool, junior Olympic swimming pool and lakeside sand beach. The amenity area will allow residents to paddleboard, kayak or canoe, as well as lift weights and practice yoga. In addition, residents can learn how to cook something new in the Culinary Studio and Demonstration Kitchen, which is also available for catered events in the social room. A multipurpose field, dockside Crew House, dog park, neighborhood park, multipurpose paths for walking, jogging and bicycling and more are also planned for the center.

Located on the south side of County Road 210 between U.S. Route 1 and Interstate 95, Beacon Lake is within the St. Johns County Public School District and zoned for A-rated schools including Ocean Palms Elementary School, Alice B. Landrum Middle School and Allen D. Nease High School for the 2018-2019 school year.

More than 115 homes have been sold and families are moving into the community. Beacon Lake has five furnished and decorated model homes showcasing the latest in-home design trends. In Phase 1, Dream Finders Homes and Mattamy Homes are offering 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.
