Are you looking for an affordable Pensacola subdivision with beautiful yet affordable homes that is close to the area naval bases. Lake Charlene is worth checking out. I had previously described this subdivision as the “Jewel of Myrtle Grove”.

In my research of Lake Charlene MLS listings, I think I saw the term “Serene Lake Charlene” mentioned about 5 times on different listings. I think this cliche has lost its charm, so I’ll try to keep from overusing it, if I can help myself.

The following table shows Pensacola real estate market data for Lake Charlene. Note that this table separates the waterfront property from the non-waterfront property. Lake Charlene is one of the few west Pensacola subdivisions that offers serene waterfront views. The numbers in the table are created using data from the Pensacola MLS and are deemed reliable but not guaranteed. These numbers do not include sales by Pensacola FSBOs.

The table below does not contain typos. When you see waterfront property at $100 per sq ft, that is accurate. Imagine, beautiful views of serene Lake Charlene for that price.
