Wedgefield is bounded by SR 520 and SR 528 (Beachline Expressway), in a corner such that the two roads make a wedge shape where they meet. The other major road is Dallas Boulevard, formerly SR 13, which used to link to East Colonial Drive but has not for decades since a portion north of Wedgefield was demolished and sodded over. Dallas Boulevard only links directly to the Beachline (Exit 28), where only eastbound traffic can exit onto Dallas and traffic on Dallas can only enter the Beachline westbound. Traffic seeking to get onto the Beachline eastbound, SR 520 or SR 50 must take a series of side roads onto SR 520.
Most of the land in Wedgefield is divided into lots of 1-acre (4,000 m2) or larger, but some houses in the subdivision are situated on lots of one acre or less.
Wedgefield offers a championship 18-hole Golf Course and Country Club with Restaurant and bar, bicycle lanes , Community park, playground and a sports complex. For nature lovers, the Hal Scott preserve and park provides over 9,000 acres of nature trails, fishing lakes and camping. Convenient and easy access to highways, beach, Airport, Orlando attractions, Downtown Orlando etc.
This neighborhood during the Space Shuttle era was a thriving community as many people working the Kennedy Space Center could drive about 30 minutes to a very large homesite and large home for a great price. After the space shuttle program ended, and the downturn in the economy, the sales in Wedgefield dropped off.
Now, with the rebirth of the economy and the rebirth of the Space industry driven by Space-X program, homes and home sites in Wedgefield are once again flourishing.
We love this area and have great homes, and incredible homesites and many custom builders ready to build you a dream home for an amazing price.
With Orlando International Airport only about 15 minutes west, Kennedy Space Center about 40 minutes East, Beaches about 35 minutes, and Walt Disney World about 30 minutes, you are central to everything in Central Florida, yet still out in a very quiet community of oversized home sites and amazing homes.
