About Greater Northdale, Florida Real Estate

Northdale is a fantastic planned suburban community located 15 miles north of Tampa. Northdale was established in 1978, and most of the homes were built in the 80s. Many homes have been updated but have maintained their fantastic character and charm, setting them apart from modern “cookie-cutter” communities. These one- and two-story single-family residences are nestled between large wooded areas, ponds, and lakes. Some homes in the community line the manicured fairways of the Northdale Golf Course. The vegetation and landscaping throughout Northdale are lush and mature, creating a park-like and serene feel.

The community has lovely parks, playgrounds, trails, and sports fields to meet the needs of residents desiring a robust and active outdoor lifestyle.

The community is also home to the family-friendly, award-winning championship Northdale Golf & Tennis Club.
