The Springs of Mill Lakes is a master-planned residential community of 133 single-family custom homes. The community is specifically designed to appeal to the active 55+ homeowner seeking an easy-living lifestyle surrounded by nature. The amenity-rich neighborhood in the vibrant town of Opelika, near Alabama’s major university town of Auburn and its top medical facilities, is scheduled to open later in 2016.
The Springs of Mill Lakes is located on an 80-acre parcel next to a 45-acre wildlife sanctuary and near the expansive Tiger Town retail area. The natural setting includes two 3.5-acre lakes, a wandering creek, and waterfalls. One lake will be used for recreation; the other lake will be stocked for fishing. The well-designed community, with its monumental entry, will be further enhanced by walkways, nature trails and a dock. The lush common grounds will be beautifully maintained and professionally landscaped.
