"Growing area of town near large chain of beautiful lakes"
I grew up spending my summer on Big Lake Conway off of Hoffner Avenue. This area is growing, but some parts of Hoffner are nicer than others. The area through Belle Isle is beautiful with lakes on either side of the road. The homes are expensive if they are on the water, but the lots are also large for the most part. The schools are not that great, but there are viable private schools nearby. The area is about fifteen minutes from the Florida Mall and the great food surrounding it. You will be close to the attractions while maintaining your privacy.
