Highlands Reserve was born in 2005 by Engle Homes and was purchased and completed by DR Horton and eventually Starwood Land Ventures. Prior to the start of manufacturing, the land was primarily woodlands with some areas for cattle to roam. The construction of homes began in earnest in 2006 and the building continues today. The community displays spectacular spacious home designs in three distinctive home styles each with multiple floor plans, Traditional, generally smaller homes with smaller lots; Estates, which feature larger lots and generally larger homes; and the Waterfront homes which are primarily along the St Lucie waterway with several featuring larger lots with access to a dock.
The community features designer street lamps and wide sidewalks where residents can enjoy casual strolls with views of the preserve and lakes. This community has been planned for a majority
home owner-occupied residence and requires adherence to the comprehensive rules and covenants that provide for a safe and enjoyable community. Many of the residents are families with children, retirees or snowbirds who come to enjoy our lovely community during those cold northern winter months.
