Pickett Downs consists of 80 single family executive homes located in the southeast corner of Seminole County, a 1000 acre lake with private ramp and docking facilities, and numerous hiking and bridal trails that add to the enjoyment and serenity of the area.
Our custom-built homes are distinctive in appearance because of the variety of custom home builders that contribute to its development. The large, heavily wooded home sites, ranging from 3 to 5 acres, provide more than enough 'elbow room' for any size family.
Impressive estate homes with grand entranceways, gently meandering country streets, bridal trails, the Cross-Seminole Bikeway & Trail, nearby Oviedo mall and beltway access, and the pristine setting offer a quality of life unsurpassed in the Central Florida region.
Pickett Downs was created in the early 1980s by developer Michael D. Jones. It is located southeast of Oviedo, Florida, just a few minutes from the University of Central Florida main campus. As part of the construction process, the developer split the project into four separate phases. Pickett Downs phase I represented the larger, three to five acre estate lots, and phases II, III, and IV represented the one to two acre lots. Phase IV was later sold to a another developer and is now known as the Kilaloe subdivision.
The Pickett Downs Homeowners' Association was established as a voluntary organization to represent the interests of the families in this community. Governed by a four person Board of Directors, and an Architectual Control Committee Chairman, all of whom are elected for two year terms, the HOA is a non-profit Florida corporation. The organization interfaces with the North Lake Pickett Easement Association, which represents the interests of all the homeowners residing on or with deeded access to Lake Pickett.
The HOA deals affirmatively with civic challenges facing its membership, including School Board issues, community policing (traffic, security and safety concerns), and the impact of commercial development in the surrounding area. The Pickett Downs HOA has established a Community Watch and Safety Program in cooperation with the Seminole County Police Department. Association issues also include beautification and improvement of common areas within the development, and the protection of our natural environment.
