Chose from Intracoastal, lake, golf course or preserve fronted homes and home sites. Homesites range from $40K for interior lots to $450 - 600K for Intracoastal sites.

A private highly rated Jack Nicklaus signature golf course with a beautiful clubhouse winds through the complex. The course is the focal point of the complex, however only one third of the residents are golfers. A Village Center offers 7 hartru tennis courts, a fitness center, a large heated pool, bocce, croquette, a meeting/card room, and a café/deli. A second Village Center has been completed. Several community activities are organized by the Village Center staff. A walking/jogging trail follows the Intracoastal Waterway for the entire length of the development. An adjacent county park with a boat ramp offers convenient access to the Intracoastal Waterway.

Originally developed by Lowe and purchased by LandMar Group (a division of Cresent and ultimately Duke Power), Grand Haven has been developed in stages since the late 90’s by opening a succession of “villages.” Newly opened villages have build-out requirements that insure rapid development, resulting in an immediate sense of community. Grand Haven has proven to be a great place to live. The steady increase in property values has also made Grand Haven popular to investors.

Grand Haven consists primarily of single family homes along with a mixture of town homes and condominiums. Covenants restrict short term rentals ensuring the residential nature of the community. While most residents are in the 50 - 75 year age bracket, there are several young families. School buses are a common site.

Planned as a 1900 unit Planned Unit Development (PUD), Grand Haven is nearly built out. The final phase, Wild Oaks, has sold nearly all of its estate sized lots. Infrastructure work is completed with the first home construction started in late 2006. The second and final phase of the Riverview Condominiums, consisting of 48 units, began construction in August 2006. Two of 4 planned buildings were begun but the shells remain uncompleted. Whitehall Homes, developer of the units became insolvent.
