We love our home here at Legacy. We are right on the water and just love how quiet the neighborhood is. We didn't really want to be in one of those huge communities but yet we still wanted the nice clubhouse with all the bells and whistles. All the perks here are great. The clubhouse has everything you could want and we really enjoy the clubs and events. Everyone we've met is very friendly, our neighbors are great and we are happy with our decision to buy a house here.

Legacy of Leesburg is one of the most beautiful retirement communities I have seen in Florida. What I like is that it is very uncrowded and laid back. The whole community is surrounded by ponds and wooded areas with lots of open space to walk and view the native Florida wildlife.

I've known about Florida Leisure Communities for a number of years, and they build one of the finest homes anywhere at one of the best values anywhere. They put more features into their homes, and they are willing to work with you to customize your home... something that most Florida builders refuse to do.

Legacy is an older established community but it is very affordable and well located close to shopping. You should give it careful consideration if you're looking for a great home for retirement.
