We researched the Central Florida area for a 55+ community using 55Places.com and other resources. In the fall of 2014 we came to Florida and went to several communities in Leesburg and Ocala area. After seeing Spruce Creek Preserve, we knew it was on the top of our list of potential home sites. In The spring of 2015, we sold our home in New England and came to Florida. We purchased a home in Spruce Creek Preserve in early May. Spruce Creek Preserve is a financially solid, HOA owned community. The homes are a good value for the North Central Florida area. The people we have met in the area are very open and friendly. We are happy with our decision to choose Spruce Creek Preserve.
The board of directors does not obey the governing
We lived in Spruce Creek since 1998.
Until recently would have rated this to be a great community.
We have an RV storage area, which we pay for. adjacent is an RV temporary parking area for guests of residence.
Resident manager and board of directors says that "any size vehicle" can park in this area. This, apparently includes 70ft 18 wheel commercial vehicles, who knows what they have as cargo!!
This isn't what I understood, but apparently it's of no concern.
We lived here in 2002! Moved back to KY near family. Plan to move back to Fla sometime in the future. Would live no where else!! This is a great place to live.
We knew of this place many years ago when we first lived in Florida. Turns out to be a great place to live.
It's gated for privacy, it's nice and quiet and it's got all the nice amenities like the clubhouse, fitness center, pools, golf and restaurant. Plus, the homes are very reasonably priced.
Love the area and hope to come back and buy a house to retire in
