Top 10 Reasons People Love FishHawk Ranch
Top 10 Reasons People Love FishHawk Ranch
Being a FishHawk Ranch REALTOR I am often asked what I love most about the community. Here are my top 10 reasons people love FishHawk Ranch. Keep in mind these are my reasons. Feel free to comment below and leave yours.
- FishHawk Area Schools – I believe this may be one of the main reasons people move to FishHawk Ranch. All of the schools in the FishHawk Ranch school zone are “A” rated and they are some of the highest rated schools in the state of Florida. For additional information on these schools, the FishHawk Ranch area schools page gives details, websites and contact information for each of these schools along with the private schools and daycare centers in the FishHawk Ranch area.
- Sense of Community – For me this is priceless. Living in Florida is kind of like living in a melting pot of every part of the country. FishHawk Ranch and the folks that live here make everyone feel welcome and certainly go out of their way to help neighbors and organizations in need. As I write this we just completed a charity softball event for the Seeds of Hope charity. The tournament along with the community, volunteers and sponsors raised over $11,000 for this amazing charity. I am truly humbled to be part of this and am so proud of this community that steps up whenever needed!
- Amenities – FishHawk Ranch is well known for its world class amenities. These amenities are seemingly endless. The community features over 25 miles of beautiful paved nature trails. Multiple pools included some heated pools, splash pools and of course the amazing resort style waterfall pool at the Aquatic Club. The community has a community softball field, tennis, basketball, street hockey and much more! The community truly has something to do for everyone. Please click over to the FishHawk Ranch Amenities page for a complete breakdown, descriptions, locations, and photos of these great amenities.
- Beautiful Community – FishHawk Ranch is simply stunning. The community is situated in a beautiful natural setting. When developed a lot of care was taken to ensure as much of the natural beauty was left untouched as possible. FishHawk Ranch was named the first “Green Community” in Hillsborough County. FishHawk Ranch always seems clean. The community does a nice job keeping the community clean and you will always see staff out picking up any trash on the roads.
- Weather – There is not a single place in the country that as a nicer Fall, winter or spring than we do. Our winters are generally in the 70’s during the day and cooler at night. Okay, no place is perfect! Summers are hot and without question humid. The water surrounding the area tends to keep the temperature down a little bit. I have not seen a day here over 96 degrees (yes I know that is still hot). I am originally from New Jersey and can remember many days over 100 with 100% humidity! The hot weather just lasts a little longer here. Personally I will take the Florida summers over snow any day!
- FishHawk Ranch Location – At first glance FishHawk Ranch may seem a little off the beaten path and I guess it kind of is. That is really one of the things I like about it. If you look closer at the location it is a great central location for doing things in Florida. FishHawk Ranch is about 35 minutes from downtown Tampa, a little over an hour from the beautiful Sarasota, Clearwater and St. Pete beaches and about an hour and fifteen minutes from all the attractions in Orlando. It is fairly easy to get to 3 of the large airports in the area. And sports fans, we have access to all the major sports as well as host some of the high profile sporting events like the Superbowl, College Football Bowl Games including the 2017 College Football National Championship and the NCAA College Basketball Tournament. In Florida it is harder to get much more central than that.
- 25 Miles of Nature Trails – If you love beautiful scenery when you are biking or walking the FishHawk Ranch trails are perfect. You much check them out!
- Bus Line – The HART bus line is just minutes from most of the homes in FishHawk Ranch. Depending on where your home is located you may even be able to walk! One of the buses runs directly to MacDill AFB.
- Community Pools – I know this falls under amenities but it is really worth getting into a little detail. There are pools throughout the community that are open to all FishHawk residents. There are even a few pools open to certain subdivisions like the pool in FishHawk Ridge. The main pools are Hawk Park, Aquatic Club (2 pools, the waterfall pool and larger lap pool), Osprey Club (heated pool and splash pool for the little ones), and the Starling Club (heated pool and splash pool). FishHawk Ranch West has its own pool and splash pool. There are a lot of great pools to choose from!
- Variety of Homes For Sale – When FishHawk Ranch was created it was developed to encompass a wide variety of homeowners. You can find a 2 bedroom townhome for as little as $120,000 or an executive home for well over $1,000,000 and everything in between. Many different builders have built in here throughout the years so there are a lot of different style homes and floor plans to choose from.
Well, those are my top 10 reasons people love FishHawk Ranch. Did I miss anything? What are your reasons?
