Sugarmill Woods, Florida
View Sugarmill Woods, FL Real Estate ListingsSugarmill Woods, Florida has a small population of just over 8,000 people, but it is a community that is growing. While the population isn’t significant, the degree of growth is and that has a lot to do with the community being young. It was created in 1972 as a residential area that incorporated “wildlife strips” in its planning. It was the first residential area in the country to exercise this type of wildlife-residential integration.
Furthermore, the Sugarmill Woods area is made up of three Property Owners Associations. These associations make activities available to the residents. What makes this community unique over many towns and cities throughout Florida is that the residents work together to establish a good quality of life.
If you are looking to live in a quality community with upscale housing, this is a very quaint community that has a strong focus on quality rather than quantity. It is this principle and the management of the community that makes it a very pleasant place to live. It is clean and close-knit.
