With each residential homesite in Blackhawk being 1-acre or slightly more, residents here enjoy spacious privacy in a country setting featuring some of south Lee County’s most impressive homes.
Located off Briarcliff Road just south of Six Mile Cypress Parkway, Blackhawk was developed by the Arthur Rutenberg Corporation beginning in 1997 and completing buildout in 2007. The Rutenberg reputation for unmatched construction quality and larger luxury estate home designs has solidified their stellar reputation in southwest Florida, and Blackhawk is a prime example of the quality of their work.
With just 78 single-family homes within this private gated community, Blackhawk offers residents a country ambience accented by impressive architectural design and wide open spaces. The large lake and surrounding natural landscaping take you back to a more tranquil, old-Florida era.
