Current Neighborhood

Moss Park Reserve

What is your favorite part about living in your neighborhood?
We moved to this neighborhood over the summer after extensively home shopping in the Lake Nona area for about 12 months.  We decided on this neighborhood because it was small, quiet and private. The neighbors that we have met have all been friendly and welcoming.  Our boys have already made lots of friends to run around with in the neighborhood. We especially love that the lots are all oversized and allow plenty of space for our kids and their friends to run and play.  We enjoy the scenic sunset views of Lake Hart. The neighborhood has a rural feel, yet we are only minutes away from the highways, restaurants and shopping

What is your occupation?

Jason – Engineer at Apple

Amy – Elementary School Library Media Specialist

How did you land in Orlando?

Amy – after college at USF, I moved back to my small hometown and began teaching but on the weekends I would travel to Orlando to visit friends.  Then I applied to a new school that was opening in Orange County and made the move here and later enrolled in graduate school at UCF and have been here ever since.

Jason – after graduating from college at Florida Tech, I was offered an engineering job in Orlando.
