Lehigh Acres -- If you are looking for a little bit of country in a city, look no further. Lehigh Acres lies just east of Ft. Myers and until the 1950's remained populated with large farms and cattle ranches. In 1951 Lee Ratner purchased about 100 square miles of what is known today as Lehigh Acres and platted the area into quarter acre and half acre lots. Today Lehigh has over 60,000 acres, 100,000 platted lots, and 70,000 residents. There are miles of freshwater canals to kayak or canoe, and loads of hiking and biking trails to explore. Lehigh offers something to suit almost any lifestyle. Lehigh's location just east of I 75 makes it a convenient and short drive to Ft. Myers and Cape Coral and in about 30 minutes you can be walking on one of the finest gulf beaches in Southwest Florida, boating, sunning, or watching one of our incredible Southwest Florida sunsets.
There are literally thousands of very affordable vacant lots in Lehigh Acres. DMI along with our lot experts are ready to help you locate the perfect lot on which to build your new DMI home.
