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 bridle 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, bridle 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.
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 Architectural 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.
