What are some nice neighborhoods in Palm Harbor? I've heard Westlake Village and Indian Trails, as well as East Lake.

Neighborhoods with some character, differing houses rather than cookie cutters, walkable, etc.

East Lake is a very nice area in Oldsmar. It has different types of homes as well as apts (condos here).
The others I can't say, for I don't know them.

Ditto on East Lake Woodlands from me. There are a variety of homes in smaller subdivisions with little drive-through traffic. It's an excellent location with quick access to McMullen Booth Rd (provides easy access to Clearwater and SR60), Countryside Blvd (a 10 minute drive to Countryside Mall, US 19 and a lot of other services), Curlew Road/586 (which heads west to Dunedin and the beaches), or Tampa Rd/Hillsborough Ave (south into the Westshore/Airport and downtown Tampa). If schools are part of the equation, it's the best school district in the metro area. If not, a great selling point in the future. Good luck with the house hunt!

Though I do like Eastlake, imo it probably fits the definition of cookie cutter the most.

Other nice neighborhoods are Eniswood and Autumn Woods, those homes least likely to be cookie cutter in any way don't usually belong to any "named" or defined neighborhood, just located on the aves that are considered part of old palm harbor or sutherland-the original name.

You might look at Cobb's Landing in PH too. We just bought a house there last weekend (YAY!). They are definitely not cookie-cutter houses and you are right near Lake Tarpon and 10 mins. to the coast, if water access is of any interest to you.

Good luck to you. I don't think you can really go wrong anywhere in Palm Harbor and the surrounding towns.

I went through Allen's Ridge today, among others. I thought it was pretty nice. If I end up in PH, I'm thinking I want to be west of 19. And, I agree that ELW seemed cookie cutter.

Autumn Woods is beautiful homes,home might be in need of updating though. Also make sure what high school you are zoned for( if you intend to go the public school route). Palm Harbor University High School is the best, stay away from Dunedin High, Tarpon High and Countryside. Eastlake is good also!

Where is Autumn Woods located? I don't see it on Google Maps.

Any other neighborhoods? Somewhere that leans younger (with young families), non-cookie cutter houses, walkable, etc. would be nice. I'm thinking west of 19 right now but I don't know too much about the area yet.

Are there home owners fees in the various neighborhoods in Palm Harbor? If so, how much do they run (ballpark)? I've not heard of home owners fees for houses before but I know all the houses in the area seem to belong to little neighborhoods here.
