JB Ranch is a new 55+ community in Ocala, Florida that offers retirees affordable, low-maintenance homes along with resort-style amenities within an attractive setting. D.R. Horton, America’s largest homebuilder, will develop single-family homes that are sure to have everything active adult homeowners could want or need.
Although the community was started by Armstrong Homes, D.R. Horton took over and began construction of JB Ranch in 2017 and plans to offer 346 detached homes upon completion. Homes are reasonably priced from the high $100s and come in a variety of designs and sizes. The builder’s Freedom Homes collection features four distinct floor plans that range in size from 1,641 to 2,034 square feet and have two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and attached two-car garages. All homes include spacious layouts, large, first-floor master suites with walk-in closets, generous great rooms, gourmet kitchens, and luxurious fixtures throughout. Another benefit to living in JB Ranch is that homeowners enjoy a low-maintenance lifestyle. A homeowners’ association fee will take care of landscaping and irrigation as well as exterior home upkeep on all homes in this beautiful age-restricted community. With more time to relax and pursue individual interests, residents of JB Ranch can spend their days at the proposed clubhouse, which is sure to be the central hub of physical activity and social recreation. The builder plans to construct a well-appointed clubhouse brimming with resort-style amenities where residents can gather and mingle with their neighbors. Some of the amenities include a fitness center, multi-purpose room, catering kitchen, outdoor pool and patio, parks and natural space, and miles of walking and biking trails. Active adults will also enjoy JB Ranch’s prime location in Ocala, Florida, which is regarded as the “Horse Capital of the World.” The area is ideal for people who love equestrian activities or just visiting horse farms. Downtown Ocala offers residents numerous options like shopping, dining, and entertainment, including “Brick City,” which has more than 20 shops and restaurants within a quaint historic setting. Retirees will also have easy access to Highway 200 and Interstate 70, making driving across town a breeze. Medical facilities like Munro Regional Health Center are just four-and-a-half miles away. Baby Boomers seeking continuing education courses can visit College of Central Florida, which is just nine miles away. With so much to offer in and around the Ocala area, JB Ranch is sure to attract retirees from across the country.
