Categories: Neighborhood News | Posted: July 5, 2018

Providence Homes is excited to announce that new estate-sized lakefront home sites are available in Markland. The new 93’ wide lakefront home sites are located on one of the two 15-acre lakes in Markland and offer plenty of room for a home, pool and backyard.    

Conveniently located along I-95 & International Golf Parkway, Markland is a beautifully designed neighborhood that offers families all of the lifestyle benefits of larger communities on a more intimate scale. Markland features a gorgeous clubhouse, resort pool with cabana, spacious fitness center, tennis courts, playgrounds, a 15-acre lake, fire pits, event lawns, and so much more, your daily life will feel just like your dream vacation!
