Beacon Lake currently falls within the boundaries assigned to Ocean Palms Elementary School, Alice B. Landrum Middle School, and Allen D. Nease High School for the 2018-2019 school year. The developer has set aside funds for new school construction. St. Johns County is rated #1 School District in Florida for 2019! As school boundaries can change, we recommend verifying your child’s designated schools with the St. John’s County School District.

Though early residents often benefit from purchasing a home at pre-construction or early pricing, from time to time they may experience issues unique to living in a “community in progress” such as: construction vehicles on their street or neighborhood, construction debris, flat tires, truck noise, lawn damage, power outages, construction site dust, and lake level issues.
Yes, unlike some communities where early residents have to wait 2 – 3 years to enjoy their amenities, Beacon Lake’s developer completed construction of the Lake House Amenity & Fitness Center in time for the first hundred families to enjoy! The Lake House amenity and fitness center is open and staffed by a full time manager.
Note: Following CDC guidelines for the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Lake House Amenity & Fitness Center is currently closed.
Blowing dust is a common issue on any live construction site as loose dirt and sand can be whipped around and picked up by the wind. So yes, at certain times of the year – particularly in the dry, spring season – Beacon Lake’s early residents experience construction dust. But, in anticipation of these issues, the developer has taken steps to mitigate the problem including: full-time watering trucks, laying sod, mulch and seed – and placing fences between construction areas and adjacent homes. Nevertheless, during dry, windy times these steps reduce – but do not stop – the dust. Fortunately, the rainy season is around the corner and the problem will be short lived.
During active community construction, lakes and water features may need to be pumped down from time to time. The 43-acre lake was completed in early February 2020 – and is now quickly filling naturally from groundwater, rainwater and a storm drainage system. According to our construction team, the lakes which are all interconnected, are recovering well and should return to appropriate levels in the coming months. But, as with any live construction site, the lakes may need to be temporarily pumped down from time to time to allow for road and infrastructure construction.
