Buying a House in Hunters Creek Florida

When I first moved to Orlando, I rented a home in the Timucua sub-division of Hunters Creek for two years. It was my introduction to Orlando living and it proved to be a wonderful way to start my new life in Florida. For that reason, Hunters Creek holds a very special place in my heart. It’s not only a beautiful area, with very nice, reasonably priced homes – it’s a stones throw from Disney.

The communities are really pleasant to drive through: You’ll see lots of oak trees, well-maintained homes, and people walking. When I drove through the community recently on a Monday afternoon, I was surprised by how many people were out walking and exercising.

At Eagle Park between two neighborhoods. The weather was amazing!

Location & HIstory

Typically in South Orlando suburbs, you’re close to one or two points of interest, but not all. You’re either close to the parks, and 30 minutes from the airport, or your close to the airport and 40 minutes from downtown Orlando. In Hunter’s Creek, however, you’re 9 miles from Disney, 12 miles from Universal, and 13 miles from the airport.

These short commute times are thanks to the many highways and roads that border the community: Toll roads 417 and the Turnpike, as well as major commuting roads like John Young Parkway and Orange Blossom Trail. Hunter’s Creek isn’t perfect, but I’d argue that its location is hard to beat.

Things to Do

When you’re ready to see the wilder side of natural Florida, Gatorland is located conveniently inside Hunter’s Creek. This suburb is also minutes from major shopping centers like The Loop and The Crosslands. Apart from shopping, you’d also be hard-pressed not to find a restaurant everyone can agree on here — there are tons to choose from.

The Loop shopping center. Definitely a one-stop shopping destination.

Homes in Hunters Creek, FL

Hunter’s Creek was largely built in the 80s and 90s. There isn’t much new construction in the area, but older homes have historically held their value well. Most neighborhoods stem off of Hunter’s Creek Blvd and Town Center Blvd, almost 30 mini-subdivisions in all. All subdivisions are lined with private, thick brick walls, and uniform neighborhood entry signs. Large oak trees line most of the green space along roads and neighborhoods.

As of this writing, you can still find a few homes at the median Orlando home price, but most homes are slightly higher in price point. Most homes in this price range are around 2,000 sq ft.

Why Move Here?

If you want to live in a scenic neighborhood close to major points of interest, Hunter’s Creek is your place. The neighborhoods are really well-maintained, and the landscaping is tended to. Neighborhoods are tidy, and you’re less than a 5-minute commute to most shops and restaurants. You are just a short distance to main Orlando highways and home prices are still lower than upscale neighborhoods further away (like Lake Nona and Windermere).

One thought on “Buying a House in Hunters Creek Florida

  • As a resident of HC, one of the major selling points are the number of homes on the water meaning there isn’t a home directly behind you. This gives the neighborhood more of a suburban feel and less of the urban feel many areas have in Florida. Hunter’s Creek is also known for the quality of Orange County public schools resident children attend.
