Overview of Neighborhood
In a central Florida neighborhood that had withered for decades, it once was hard to see a different future. Dilapidated homes had been razed; refuse and weeds covered neighborhood lots. In 2010, Rural Neighborhoods and its development partner Pinnacle Housing Group said, “We can change that.”
Cypress Cove is a catalyst for the ongoing revitalization of this blue-collar neighborhood. Our 80-unit rental community with its modern, trend setting “craftsman design” and spectacular lake views serves a mix of central Polk County workers from its strategic Winter Haven location. The development offers an array of indoor and outdoor amenities and lies immediately adjacent to Winter Haven’s central recreation corridor created under the “rails to trails” program. Just steps from our residents’ door, the Chain of Lakes Trail stretches for more than 3 miles along a former railroad bed from the central business district north to Lake Alford.

The Community: Winter Haven
Near the I-4 corridor between Tampa and Orlando, Winter Haven is a growing town of nearly 38,000 persons. Emerging new businesses marked by CSX Integrated Logistics Center and Legoland combine with Polk County’s long tradition of raising blueberries, cattle, citrus, horticulture and sod. Nearly 6,800 local families remain employed in farm work. Rural Neighborhoods’ Cypress Cove provides a place to call home to agricultural employees and those employed in new local industries.
