If you’re Orlando-bound in your search for a new custom Florida home, we at ICI Homes offer two excellent choices.
Both are our communities, and located on the desirable south side of the City Beautiful, near convenient traffic corridors, Orlando International Airport, and, of course, those world-renowned Florida attractions (because we bet you’ll have visitors to entertain after you move).
Why Orlando’s south side? Because nearby highways can whisk you anywhere you need to go in Orlando proper. Because you’ll escape the ensconced congestion and built-out neighborhoods on the north side. And, because you’ll enjoy new shopping enclaves, dining and entertainment options in peaceable Kissimmee and southeast Orlando.
We paint a rosy portrait, but it’s true! First, download this handy brochure for a helpful birds-eye glance at our Orlando communities opens in a new window. Then, follow along as we fill you in on their location.
Maybe you see the name of this town on Orlando’s southwest side and think “hotels galore.” And you’ll find plenty near the attractions. But, your new back yard is nowhere near the tourist corridor. All those “Worlds” are a world away, yet easy to access if you have house-guests.
Kissimmee is actually a historic town in Osceola County. Our ICI Homes community here — Avilla — fits right in. Incorporated in 1883, Kissimmee has been home to steamboat, citrus and cattle-ranching operations at various times. You’ll still spot ranches and groves to the south.
Another calling card is Kissimmee’s vast natural beauty. Lakes large and small, and the parks, boating and recreational facilities that surround them, are an everyday part of Kissimmee life.
Avilla opens in a new window tucks right into that tranquil central Florida landscape. It’s a community dotted with soaring oaks and populated by classic, Mediterranean-look homes. Think stucco, clay roof tiles and graceful wrought-iron flourishes. You’ll also find plenty of socialization thanks to a pool complex, a kids’ playground and tennis and basketball courts.
But hurry! Avilla is on closeout as of this writing. Grab your slice of Kissimmee fast.
Yes, we said Orlando, but you’ll find our Live Oak Estates opens in a new window in the Lake Nona area on Orlando’s booming southeast side. Major companies, medical facilities and sports organizations have built complexes here, and the dining, shopping, recreation and entertainment choices seemingly multiply by the week.
So do the housing options, so you’ll want to visit our exclusive, gated Live Oak Estates where — you guessed it — there are numerous live oaks, plus roomy one-acre lots and access to neighboring lakes.
A-rated schools are five minutes away. So is a fire station, for peace of mind. Your large lot gives you space to imagine the pool you’ve always wanted, or the kids’ playground, or a backyard garden. Local park and boating facilities are right down the road (google Lake Mary Jane and Lake Hart).
