Both paisley and pine lakes are within an hour of Eustis. You have a lot of options in north Lake County

Plus it’s a really quick trip down 19 and those other roads- 45 or whatever.

The only way you are going to insulate yourself from "noise" and "nuisance neighbors" is by buying lots of land and carefully placing your property away from property lines. That probably means 20 or 30 very wooded acres with your home built slap dab in the center surrounded by dense forest.

HOA's may give you some legal piece of mind but will not completely solve the problem of a close neighbor who is a nuisance to you. Just keep that in mind. The nuisance neighbor may also retaliate against you in any number of ways and gin up their own claims against you with the HOA. Neighbors can really suck sometimes.

I second this. Those places aren't going to see much development anytime soon either.

Is there any negative reason why those areas are not going to see much development any time soon?
What can you tell me about the negatives and positives of that area? (All areas have at least some pos and some neg.)

It’s in the forest so a lot of can’t be developed anyway.

Iirc someone recently bought a huge former camp out there and is subdividing it. I believe the camp was in Umatilla.

I get those towns confused; have to look more.

When you get up towards Astor lots get smaller and prices get higher because of proximity to the St John’s. Some of the homes are actually “warped” due to flooding.

I might have mentioned Lisbon/Emerelda Marsh area in a different thread. There you’d have to watch out for flood zones.

I’ve noticed lots of middle aged bikers (motorcycles) in the area. Just something to think about in case your neighbor likes to have bike club meetings at his place!!

I have a friend of a friend in Weirsdale where the main problem is internet connection. She lives alone in 5 acres and lives it except for the internetz.

I think Paisley is a preseason training place for a Canadian baseball team.

Lake Dalhousie Estates in Umatilla looks interesting. There are 2 acre lots there but it sounds like it might emphasize “quiet”. Don’t they all, though! Hard to say.

Here are my recommendations in the Orlando metro that would meet your criteria:

Oviedo/Chuluota Area (My personal favorite)
Sanford (Outskirts)
South Lake Nona (South of Airport/417)
Lake County (Mt. Dora/Tavares/etc.)

These would be your best bets, anything on the outskirts of the area.. The closer you get to the city center the more suburban/urban things will become.. Hopes this help!

Check out landsofamerica Lake County Florida- the Lake Yale Rd parcels could be what was subdivided. In any case, it’s a very educational site. You can see what beautiful vacant land might actually be approved for residential and even multi family development vs agricultural, etc. Some can be quite surprising.

Hate to buy somewhere and end up with The Villages next door. And yes, some will say, oh that would be a great investment!

That’s NOT what movingvan is after at this point. Me neither!

Wekiva State Forest. My uncle owns land out there, and he can’t have more than one building per 10 acres. Rules are very strict. And he is not within the forest. Just near it. Cons? You’re far from urban areas. Other than that, if you’re looking for quiet areas, it’s great. I love visiting his ranch. It’s beautiful and quiet.

Wekiva is definitely beautiful!

There are homes around the Seminole State Forest as well. Nice to have that as a backyard.

There are neighborhoods in Paisley that have small lots. I don’t remember if it’s Paisley- one of the neighborhoods was full of disintegrating trailers and small homes in disrepair. Might not have been Paisley.
