The Bay Forest Neighborhood
Whether it’s a weekend retreat or a home at the beach, Bay Forest offers woods and water in a masterfully planned community with first-class amenities just 3 miles to the beach. A growing community of single family homes and villas spread over 400 acres of forested woodlands and open meadows, Bay Forest is located at the mouth of the Collins Creek Tributary, along the southern edge of the picturesque Indian River Bay. As you enter, you’ll be greeted by a shimmering lake and graceful causeway.
You can relax at one of three pools, float in the lazy river, play a game of tennis or basketball or volleyball, putter around or gather in the clubhouse or stroll along the nature trails. A second clubhouse for social gatherings along with another pool with large pool deck, cabanas and full service bar is planned. There's a pier for crabbing, fishing, or launch off to kayak, canoe or paddleboard to the bay.
Developed by an award winning builder, Bay Forest offers luxurious single-family, villa-style and resort-style homes set in a series of wooded neighborhoods, linked by extensive nature trails and walking paths. The neighborhood features low maintenance living at its finest, including complete lawn maintenance all within a close proximity to shopping, dining, entertainment and everyday conveniences. The Community will have 920 homes split between the Single Family Homes and Villas.
