A newer Tampa community, Carrollwood was developed in the 1960s and several senior PGA tournaments were held here. Breath-taking lake views drew the attention of many University of South Florida staff, including the university’s first president. Carrollwood has all the amazing amenities you could have within 5-10 minutes driving time. In addition to its beautiful, serene lakes, you have three shopping centers to choose from. Many local attractions, such as The Florida Aquarium and Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, are a stone’s throw away. Carrollwood’s community is a haven for highly-rated local city services, community churches, and is close to several nearby prestigious universities and colleges. Home prices are attractive to both newer home buyers and seasoned investors.
