The Villages of Citrus Hills: Florida Living at its Finest

The Villages of Citrus Hills boasts an impressive collection of luxurious amenities, each impeccably designed with attention-to-detail inside and out.

With plans for just over 10,000 homes, the Villages of Citrus Hills is one of Florida’s largest active adult communities. This luxurious development is set in the city of Hernando. It does not have an age-restriction, yet there are many residents over the age of 55 who appreciate the community’s exciting line-up of amenities and social activities. Older homebuyers also appreciate the diverse range of available villas and single-family homes.


Development in the Village of Citrus Hills began in 1982 and continues today. The community contains several neighborhoods, or villages, including: Terra Vista of Citrus Hills, Brentwood of Citrus Hills, Cantebury Lakes of Citrus Hills and Belmont Hills of Citrus Hills. Some of the neighborhoods are gated for added security, and the community’s amenities are spread among a number of recreation centers and clubhouses.


Resident golfers will certainly enjoy the community’s three challenging 18-hole golf courses: Skyview, The Oaks, and The Meadows. As the flagship course, Skyview stretches across 7,142 yards and features elevations of up to 250 feet above sea level. As the name implies, The Oaks is a par-70 course that winds through 6,323 yards of towering oak trees. At a length of 5,885 yards, The Meadows is a course that showcases beautiful open spaces.


Beyond golf, the Villages of Citrus Hills offers many exciting recreations. The community’s amenities are spread across several facilities including the Skyview Clubhouse, the Citrus Hills Golf and Country Club, the Brentwood Swim and Fitness Center, the Belmont Hills Outdoor Pool and Cabana, and the Bella Vista Spa and Fitness Center.

Resort-style amenities within the community include state-of-the-art fitness centers complete with aerobics and dance studios, spin bike studios, saunas and steam rooms, and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The Villages of Citrus Hills offers several restaurants and lounges, a catering hall, an auditorium and theater, hobby and game rooms, sports courts and a full-service spa.


When it comes to residences, homebuyers will find both traditional single-family homes and detached villas. The difference between these options is that the detached villas have the advantage of being maintenance-free. Their included exterior maintenance is reflected in the monthly homeowners’ association (HOA) fees.

The Villages of Citrus Hills’ high-end homes come in a variety of styles ranging from 1,500 to over 4,000 square feet. Some are set on large homesites, while others have more secluded lots. Luxurious features often include high ceilings and spacious rooms, as well as breakfast nooks, gourmet kitchens and an added den or library. All models include lanais and attached garages, though some homes also boast courtyards or swimming pools.

Showcasing spectacular amenities and beautiful homes, the Villages of Citrus Hills will certainly appeal to active adult homebuyers, especially those who prefer living in the midst of an all-age community.
