We have bought over a dozen homes. This purchase was by far the easiest yet.
Central Florida is a beautiful area with many choices of retirement communities. I checked out several in the area, but Kings Ridge had everything I needed and more. Even though I am not a golfer, I enjoy the beauty of the courses everyday. The clubhouse and the north spa have much to offer. I chose the Whitehall neighborhood. I love the private courtyards that each home has in Whitehall, and they are the only neighborhood that has their own pool and tennis courts. That neighborhood is also very accessible to the shopping plaza. I have only lived in Kings Ridge for a couple of months, and have already made several new friends. I look forward to getting involved in Clubhouse activities, and have already used the workout room. In Kings Ridge, it feels like you are on vacation everyday.
Kings Ridge was my #1 choice after visiting many 55+ communities in Central Florida. Then it was a matter of finding the ideal location and house within the community within my price range. My 55 Places Partner Agent quickly related to what I wanted and the rest is history. The Kings Ridge facilities are very impressive and a major deciding factor was how Kings Ridge takes care of your yard area, maintains your sprinkler system using reclaimed water, paints the exterior of your home every five years, provide basic cable TV, etc. for a reasonable monthly fee. The bottom line is I could not be happier with my decision!
We have found a Haven at Kings Ridge. The facilities and people there are the best. We make new friends every day. The community is made up of both elderly and young at heart folks. Very active. Our 55 Places agent was very patient and thorough in helping us and guiding us through the whole process with no pressure at all.
This beautiful 36 hole gated, warm, friendly community is situated in the Hills of Clermont (highest point in Florida)5 minutes south of Hwy50 on Hwy27. Both coasts are 1.5 hours each way, Miami 3.5hrs and Key West is 6.5 hours. The city of Clermont is growing wonderfully. KR is 10 minutes from Old Clermont and most surrounding stores circling 27 & 50. Major malls are east 15 minutes (Wintergarden) to 30 minutes (Millinia) and Orlando Airport (MCO) is 40 min east.

The North have a salt water wading pool and fresh water lap pool where the South (main clubhouse) has a large pool with 2 lap lanes and an outside wirlpool. The South also has patio covered bbq's for your special occasions and all the happening events in the main club building. The courses and grounds are very well maintained. Your neighbors are friendly, caring and watchful. Legends is across Hwy50 and The Villages are 15 min. north. Please look us up on Google Maps to get a better view picture and I hope these few words are inviting. See you on the 18th hole!
Kings Ridge offers tons of activities, nice amenities and welcoming neighbors. I moved in about 6 months ago and have already made some great friends. I participate in lots of the activities like bingo, ceramics, bridge, knitting and scrabble. This fall I plan to do some volunteer work in the community and want to do more extended trips with the travel group.
