Built steadily over 50 years, Rolling Hills was designed as a golf course community with custom golf homes on oversized lots. Part of a development of more than 1,200 golf homes the Rolling Hills Golf Club of Florida community is situated around the club’s, now closed, golf course and will enjoy continuous park development.
Situated just north of Orlando, in Central Florida's Seminole County, this high end golf community is located on Interstate 4 and State Road 434. Great schools, the rich history of nearby Longwood, the ease of commuting to Orlando, and great real estate value, are just some of the many reasons residents choose to live at Rolling Hills.
After the closure of Rolling Hills Golf Club of Florida in 2014, the former 100-acre Rolling Hills golf course was purchased by the County. Now the course is being converted into a county park. It will have a nature trail, a picnic pavilion, pet areas, gardens, playgrounds, volleyball courts, and bicycle access. When the park is complete, it will be a passive park with no organized leagues for sports. The county is still determining the final designs for the project, but prospective golf property buyers can expect a place where they and their families can make great memories.
Single family homes and golf estates are common in Rolling Hills, ranging in size from 1,300-square feet to 6,200-square feet and up, priced accordingly from approximately $300,000 to more than $2,000,000. Golf houses may feature three to eight-bedroom and two to eleven-bathroom floor plans, plus space for at least two and more cars in the garage. Inside most golf homes, residents are welcomed with expansive living rooms and spacious dining rooms. Golf home buyers will also be able to find granite countertops, gas fireplaces, rooms with high ceilings, master suites with large windows, and private swimming pools.
