Whitfield Plantation Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Whitfield Plantation is home to some of the most luxurious houses in Tallahassee, which are situated on large wooded lots that offer seclusion and privacy. The neighborhood was developed in the 1990s in a prime location just north of Interstate 10, and many of the lots back up to A.J. Henry Park. Houses are built around a single street that ends in a cul-de-sac, which eliminates through traffic and adds to the neighborhood’s serene atmosphere.
The neighborhood is in zip code 32309 in northeast Tallahassee, and it is built on Charleston Road, which is off Centerville Road. An entrance ramp to Interstate 10 is less than two miles from the neighborhood, providing an easy drive into downtown Tallahassee or to other cities across the Florida panhandle.
Tallahassee is home to several large state universities, including Florida State University and Florida A&M University, which are both about 20 minutes from Whitfield Plantation. FSU is one of the state’s premier research universities, offering many masters and doctorate programs, and Tallahassee residents enthusiastically support the school’s popular football and basketball teams.
A.J. Henry Park, just west of Whitfield Plantation, is one of many recreation areas in Tallahassee. The city’s mild climate means many months of outdoor recreation, and A.J. Henry Park offers walking trails, a playground, and a large pavilion for picnics. Lake Ella, 20 minutes from downtown Tallahassee, has a scenic walking trail around the lake, and residents enjoy feeding the ducks, turtles, and geese that live there.
Several convenience shopping centers are close to Whitfield Plantation, including the Village Commons Shopping Center, which has one of the city’s many health-food grocery stores and a number of shops and restaurants.
