The Lake Forest Keys neighborhood includes 500 homes built around the 32 acre man-made lake. The Keys were built by at least 7 different builders. About 350 of them are located on the lake front, with the right to have a private boat dock. The others are situated on beautiful wide grassy greenbelts. Most lots are only 30 feet wide and average 110 feet deep, so they don’t have very large yards! A few are located at the ends of the street, and have extra wide lots – ranging from 50 to 75 feet. These are called “point homes”, and are considered the premium lots because they have water on 2 sides. Originally, the homes ranged from 1350 square feet up to 2700 square feet, but over the years, many have been substantially improved and expanded. I am aware of at least one point home that is over 4500 square feet.
The recent prices in the Keys have ranged from the high-$500’s for small (original condition) greenbelt homes, up to $2.25 million for a customized and expanded waterfront point home.
The children who live in this neighborhood attend Rancho Canada Elementary School.
