Spring has come and gone and now summer is upon us. The weather here in Crescent City Florida is really quite mild this time of year with a light breeze coming off of Crescent Lake making it quite pleasant to sit out on the front porch on a lazy sunny summer afternoon. If you like porch swings and southern climes, big fancy houses on oak tree lined streets you will love Crescent City. It is a Florida secret that I would like to share. Just a tiny town on Crescent Lake with all the local amenities such as bank, post office, grocery store, restaurants but without the hustle and bustle and overdevelopment of Orlando and nearby Deland. Drive north on 17 from Deland and you will find Crescent City a pleasant respite with a down home flavor, gorgeous lake views and good folks sittin on their front porch swings soaking up the easy times. While you are visiting drive down Park street north and you will see my Florida lots for sale only 1 block from the lake. Next to them is a Key West style home w. front porch swing. I am hoping someone will build something similar on these lots to blend in with the local historical flavor of architecture. Be sure to visit the waterfront restaurant on the water within walking distance of these properties.
