Beacon Lake welcomes guests to lifestyle luncheon


About 150 special guests recently attended a Tapas & Tours luncheon and community tour at Beacon Lake, a new lakefront lifestyle community in northern St. Johns County. The event gave attendees an opportunity to experience residents’ lifestyle while learning about the community’s current and future plans.


At Beacon Lake, Dream Finders Homes and Mattamy Homes are building coastal-inspired single-family homes featuring welcoming front porches and open floor plans. Dream Finders is also building luxury townhomes at Beacon Lake.


Tapas & Tours opened at the Lake House – Beacon Lake’s Amenity and Fitness Center, where guests enjoyed a gourmet tapas luncheon featuring seasonal ingredients and meeting community residents and the developer. Complimentary shuttles carried guests to Mattamy and Dream Finders’ five decorated model homes showcasing the latest in home design trends. The festivities included live music and giveaways and prize drawings, including a grand prize Royal Caribbean Cruise for two to the Bahamas.


“We were pleased to once again welcome a record number of guests to our special event and we appreciate the positive comments received,” said Bruce J. Parker, Managing Director for BBX Capital Real Estate, Beacon Lake’s master developer. “Beacon Lake has been thoughtfully designed to feel intimate and friendly, making it easy for residents to enjoy the beautiful outdoors while getting to know their neighbors. We are thrilled more and more homebuyers are discovering there is so much to love at Beacon Lake.”


Tapas and Tours showcased the active family lifestyle available to residents at Beacon Lake. The magnificent Lake House is the heart of the Beacon Lake community. Anchored by a developing 43-acre lake designed for kayaks and canoes 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 offering virtual training and classes, cardio and strength training equipment, free weights, spin bikes and a fitness studio. The Culinary Studio and Demonstration kitchen is available for catered events and designed to delight foodies who enjoy cooking classes and chef demonstrations.


The Lake House amenities include a Splash Park, fun pool, junior Olympic swimming pool and lakeside sand beach. The dockside Crew House will provide kayak rentals and there are numerous outdoor seating areas for socializing including a fire pit and a gazebo. Residents can hit the tennis courts, kick around a soccer ball, hit a mallet on the croquet field, or play catch on the multipurpose playing field. A bark park offers furry residents and their owners a place to exercise, socialize and play. Residents can also enjoy watching their little one’s swing, climb and slide on the pirate ship-themed playground. The community has miles of multipurpose paths, perfect for walking, running or biking.


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 2019-2020 school year.


Final opportunities are underway in Beacon Lake’s Phase 1, where Mattamy Homes has quick move-in homes available.

Five beautifully decorated model homes are open for tours.
