Overview of Neighborhood
Located in the Eden Park area of Immokalee, Hatchers Preserve offers 18 single-family rental units for low-income families. All units have 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a laundry room with connections for washers and dryers. Leasing for the units is handled off–site at our Eden Gardens office.
Designed by LaBelle architect, Ted Hoffman, the homes draw significant attention in the community with their modern design. Yet the complex remains a quiet, quaint neighborhood with a tree-lined street. A small preserve sits at the rear of the property for native vegetation and wildlife. Immokalee’s newest school, Eden Park Elementary, is located less than a half mile west of the property.
