We will give you a tour of the different neighborhoods within Serenoa and highlight what each has to offer as well as highlight the home choices. So, let’s get started!
Where is Serenoa in Clermont FL?
Serenoa is an amazing community in the southern portion of Clermont, FL. Located south of Lake Louisa State Park, north of U.S. HWY 192, and east of Florida RT 27. Serenoa is a sprawling master planned community made of multiple types of homes and neighborhoods.
As you approach Serenoa from Highway 27, you’ll turn down Sawgrass Bay Boulevard, which leads to the Sawgrass community and eventually turns into Serenoa. Serenoa has multiple communities within it, each with its own pool.
These communities include The Palms at Serenoa, which is a 55+ community, Serenoa Lakes, and the new Edgemont community.
Community 1: Edgemont in Serenoa
Edgemont is a new community that has been in development the last 18 months. It is a small community with less than 100 homes, and there are still no release dates or pricing available.
The community is being developed by D.R. Horton, a well-known builder with over 45 years of experience in the industry. We have sold many D.R. Horton homes and have a good experience with their product.
You may be familiar with D.R. Horton in the west Orlando region from the work in Palms of Serenoa, Waterleigh (Winter Garden, FL), and Lake Apopka Sound (Apopka, FL).
Edgemont is situated on the eastern side of Serenoa and is adjacent to The Palms at Serenoa. Many residents in the Palms of Serenoa are ready for the building to commence in Edgemont because they have experienced the bulldozers and unfinished land for quite some time.
This is what Edgemont looks like as of April 2023.

Edgemont features a variety of homes that range in size from 1,672 to 2,725 square feet. There are five different floor plans available, including two one-story models and three two-story models. The community will have fewer than 100 homes, offering residents a cozy and close-knit environment.
In addition to its desirable location and beautiful five models, Serenoa, Edgemont offers a range of amenities and features such as a private pool and cabana, multiple parks, and playgrounds throughout the development.
The community will also be home to several walking and biking trails, making it easy for residents to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of the area.
We don’t have much information on Edgemont just yet and there has been little progress on the building.
There has been some information released by D.R. Horton to the general public such as Serenoa offering upgraded stainless kitchen appliances from Whirlpool, “Home is Connected” Smart Home Technology which allows you to control smart devices in your home using your phone or tablet such as turning on lights, adjusting temperature, and even locking the doors all from one place!

We love this community and think the connecting road from Sawgrass Bay Blvd to Western Way is going to be a game changer for this community.
Frequently Asked Questions
When will Sawgrass Bay Blvd be connected to Western Way?
The estimated date has been discussed as 2026. This connector will significantly cut down on the time from traveled from Clermont to the Disney area.
In fact, this is becoming one of the most popular investment sites because of the future connector. Currently, you have to travel south on RT 27, east on HWY 192, and then north on Avalon Rd. to get to Disney from south Clermont—which takes over 30 minutes.
