Pennbrooke Fairways Overview

Pennbrooke Fairways was initially established as a manufactured and mobile home community until Florida Lifestyle Community acquired the property in the 1990s. The developer expanded the 538-acre area to include many styles of site-built residences, attached as well as detached, and completed all 1200 sites by 2004. Homes in this resident-owned neighborhood are built around small lakes, conservation areas, and the three 9-hole executive golf courses.

In addition to golf, residents of this gated community enjoy two clubhouses, two solar pools, an on-site restaurant and over 100 special interest groups and clubs. Pennbrooke Fairways also employs a full-time activities director.

I was looking to retire to Florida. I knew it would be a challenge road to travel. When I found 55Places.com, I thought this would be a breeze. My inter actions with my new Realtor made it even a more successful venture. The website was easy to maneuver around. Any questions I had were answered immediately and also very accurate information for the homes listed.
I would recommend this site to anyone who wants to be completely satisfied with a new relocation. As the say, build and they will come. Well here I am in lovely Leesburg, Fl and enjoying retirement!

We have lived in Pennbrooke Fairways for only 6 weeks, but we can say that everyone has been so friendly, helpful and welcoming to us. We have met all of our neighbors in our cul-de-sac and enjoyed activities with them. There are lots of activities and everyone is willing to help get you started. I play golf, water volleyball, bingo and cards, just to name a few. I would highly recommend this community for anyone looking for a friendly place to retire.
