While they may be a bit farther from the ocean, active adults in Central Florida often take advantage of a lower cost of living than their coastal neighbors. Central Florida is also home to some of the biggest theme parks in the country, including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. In addition, homeowners in Central Florida have the ocean just over an hour’s drive away from their communities.
If you’re considering a move to Central Florida, Lennar has some fantastic new construction options for buyers 55 and better. Heritage Hills, just 25 miles west of Orlando in Clermont, FL, currently has some new construction options available including single-family manors as well as attached villa homes. These homes offer one-story living in a number of styles with modern kitchens, elegant bathrooms, and spacious master suites. Manors are priced from the mid $200s and include 1,582 to 2,032 square feet of living space. Villas are priced from the high $100s and include 1,400 to 1,517 square feet.
Homeowners at Heritage Hills enjoy access to a beautiful 19,000 square-foot clubhouse designed in a Mediterranean style. Vibrant brick paving surrounds an impressive outdoor pool where residents gather to relax, socialize, and exercise. Residents also have access to a 24-hour fitness center which features a large aerobics studio for staying active. A 500-seat ballroom hosts big events for the community while a party gazebo behind the clubhouse is the perfect venue for smaller get-togethers and grill-outs. The athletic crowd has no shortage of amenities at Heritage Hills, with a professional putting green, two tennis courts, a basketball court, three bocce ball courts, and two shuffleboard courts. Residents simply looking to enjoy some fresh air have a walking trail that surrounds a scenic pond. The area around Heritage Hills contains several lakes, with Lake Louisa State Park offering fishing, canoeing, and hiking just 15 minutes away.
Lennar is also currently building farther south in the Lakeland-Winter Haven Area in the 55+ community of Traditions at Lake Ruby. This lakeside community is offering a variety of new construction single-family homes in the Estates Collection. Priced from the high $100s, these homes range in size from 1,582 to 2,032 square feet and have two to four bedrooms, two or three bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage. Homes in the Estates Collection are designed with stylish interiors to fit any sensibility, from quaint and homey to modern and sophisticated.
Amenities at Traditions at Lake Ruby are comparable to those at Heritage Hills, with a 19,000 square-foot clubhouse, outdoor pool, fitness center, a variety of sport courts, and walking trails available for residents to enjoy. Lake Ruby is what really makes this community unique, with a dock and boat slips affording residents the opportunity to go fishing or boating whenever they please. Lake Ruby is just one of 50 lakes located within the city of Winter Haven. The area is a popular destination for bass fishing and lakeside theme parks.
