Tallywood

Low $100s – Mid $100s

Condo living is both affordable and community-oriented, especially at Tallywood, a 55+ community with 185 homes.

Buyers who appreciate having outdoor and indoor space will enjoy the courtyards and lanais enclosed in glass that some of the condos at Tallywood offer. These homes have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and carport space. The sizes are between 1,109 and 1,668 square feet, and many of the resale condos available have a den and upgrades such as tile floors.

Within the community, there’s a clubhouse with a library, a multipurpose room, and a fitness center. The heated outdoor pool is a popular gathering place, and a fenced dog park allows your furry friends to run free.
