Tidelands Estates

Tideland Estates is a community that is surrounded by water on three sides, a small yet scenic peninsula where it is not unusual to see deer grazing in your yard and egrets, pelicans and hawks swooping overhead. Most of the 62 single family homes are situated on the Intracoastal Waterway, salt water canals or on the large well fed lake. Although there are 150 home sites, only about 40% of the 80 acre community is developed. Therefore one can still purchase a lot on the lake, canals and Intracoastal. The rest of Phase-I is balanced beautifully with open lawns, granddaddy oak trees and numerous native plants and trees.

Dock permits were just granted for the Intracoastal waterway and for the Cimmaron Canal. A gazebo and fishing pier and a park area have just been completed by the homeowners in Phase-I.

HOA fees for Phase-I are $239/month. Included in that monthly fee is the irrigation and maintenance of the lawns and shrubbery. So even while you are away the yard will stay manicured, and there is no need to hire lawn maintenance.
