The Villages could be planning another major expansion into Lake County — this time in the City of Mascotte.
The mega-retirement community, under the LLC Buffalo Hide and Cattle Company, bought land from real estate firm Maury L. Carter & Associates for $7 million earlier this month, according to Lake County property records. The 900-acre property sits west of State Road 33, South of Austin Merritt Road and east of Honeycut Road.
Daryl Carter, president of Maury L. Carter and Associates, confirmed that the property was sold and that he represented the seller and was the broker. He said he could not comment on the buyer or their intentions with the property.
