We would be amiss if we forgot Celebration, a small little town created by Disney in the mid 1990’s. Disney designed a place that would live up to Walt Disney's dream....a place where people can live, work and play in a place that valued the communities of yesterday combined with the today's technology. Now home to over 9000 residents, Celebration’s real estate is a broad mix of residential offerings including condominiums and townhomes, as well as terrace, bungalow, garden, cottage, village, manor and estate homes. The architecture blends traditional, Southeastern exteriors with floor plans and interiors that are designed for modern lifestyles and tastes. Homes, most with welcoming front porches, encourage activity in the front yard. Celebration’s real estate begins with condos in the $100k’s to the gorgeous mansions in the millions.
