This deposit secured their place in line for when it became time for them to decide if they’d like to make this exciting expansion their forever home. Now that the reservation process is underway, Nancy and Donald got to choose their ideal spot!

So, why did they decide to make a the initial deposit in the first place? In their own words, Lakeside at Waterman Village will provide a lifestyle they’ll love in an unbeatable location.

Making the most of Mount Dora

One of the most appealing assets of Waterman Village, the existing community sponsoring this expansion, is its location. The community is nestled right beside Mount Dora, one of Florida’s top-ranked retirement destinations. Mount Dora has earned the nicknames “Festival City,” thanks to the number of special events happening here year-round, as well as “the New England of the South,” which sums up its unique charm.

“I’m an artist, and Mount Dora is a place where I think I’ll fit right in,” Nancy said. “And Donald enjoys golfing, so he will be able to find plenty of that nearby.”

Beyond that, the future site of Lakeside at Waterman Village will serve as an amenity itself and presents another factor that led the Contis to make their deposit.

“We really like the proximity to the water and the lake,” Donald said, in regard to how Lakeside at Waterman Village will surround the shimmering waters of Lake Margaret.

An active lifestyle with all the amenities 

“We like what we saw at the existing Waterman Village community,” Donald said. “We will stay active in our retirement, and we like knowing that we’ll have access to opportunities for fitness and wellness with what’s already there. Plus, we’re excited to see the new amenities that the expansion will bring.”

Aside from the new amenities such as the dining venues, creative spaces and fitness center, Lakeside at Waterman Village will feature luxurious accommodations in both condo-style and Garden Home layouts. And for those like the Contis who have decided to make an initial deposit, they have the opportunity for first choice on pre-opening home customizations.

“It’s nice to have the chance to customize your home and make it your own from the start,” Donald said. “We’re glad that our deposit will give us the chance to do that.”

In the meantime, Donald and Nancy shared excitement for the next steps as Lakeside at Waterman Village nears opening: “We can’t wait to find out more as this project comes together, see the floor plans and get the chance to make our decision. Lakeside at Waterman Village would meet our needs for now and the future.”
