Cortona Hills is a fairly new neighborhood in Tallahassee, established in 2016. It situated in the Northeast off of North Meridian Road near the popular Ox Bottom and Summerbrooke neighborhoods.
Cortona Hills was developed by Premier with only 30 home sites, creating a beautiful and quaint community surrounded by trees and rolling hills. The craftsman style homes range from 2,100 - 2,500 square feet and sit on lots up to half an acre in size.
The attractive homes in Cortona Hills feature red oak floors, large granite kitchen islands and over 7 inch baseboards. The homes are also Green certified, energy efficient, and are protected by the Bonded Builders Home Buyer Warranty. Residents love the classic design and quality construction found in Cortona Hills homes.
Though residents feel as though they are far from the hustle and bustle of the city, a short 12-minute drive down one of the most beautiful canopy roads in Tallahassee will get residents to the Centre of Tallahassee or Bannerman Crossings. Bannerman Crossings is a quickly growing center of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Stores and restaurants in the area include Target, Publix, Walgreens, The Blu Halo, Chick-Fil-A, and the Wharf Casual Seafood.
Residents will also enjoy close proximity to The Golf Club at Summerbrooke, city parks, and recreational facilities. Nearby, the Forestmeadows Parks & Athletic Center features 19 tennis courts, 3 indoor racquetball courts and 2 weight rooms. The Forestmeadows community pool provides a refreshing relief to the hot summer days in Tallahassee. In addition, nature lovers will enjoy the lovely biking and hiking trails of Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park. Ten miles of winding shared-use trails provide the perfect place to enjoy the fresh air and observe local wildlife.
