as a former homeowner i would say stay away, pulte builds a horrible home, most foundations are cracking,many issues with construction. Realtors never tell you that there is a sewer treatment plant behind dovekie and that the paper mill emits terrible odors constantly. all the realtors are taking everyone for a ride especially the baxter team, horrible group, lairs, money grabbers and unresponsive.
Moving across the country is a huge decision, especially at this stage of life. We were thinking about moving for a while, but when we saw Sun City Carolina Lakes, we knew this would become our new home. The amenities are beyond our wildest imaginations, we still pinch ourselves because it's almost too good to be true. The residents are so caring and considerate and everyone looks out for each other.
When I saw that we have a restriction on the number of pots that we might have in our back yard it has turned into a poor excuse for a neighborhood* I Have done my backyard very tastefully done.. Maybe 2 pots extra. This is a very sad community run by a lot do-gooders that they know nothing in taste.
Moved here mid-2016 and every day just gets better. I tell my husband that it feels like we're squatters at a gorgeous country club -- all the amenities seem too good to be true! No matter what you like to do, you can probably find it here. Unlike a lot of "active adult" communities I've seen, the population here is, indeed, active and involved in all types of fun activities. If you're not sociable, I suppose you could just sit and enjoy your lovely home, with gardeners taking care of your lawn, etc. But even if you can't participate in sports, you can play cards or paint or work in clay or sing....and on and on. Cannot recommend the lifestyle here strongly enough.
Just to update what was written here, Sun City Carolina Lakes now has two amenity centers, each featuring a huge ballroom, swimming pools and exciting outdoor pavilions. For the sports minded, there are eight clay tennis courts, eight pickleball courts, a fantastic softball field with covered bleachers, a dozen horseshoe pits and walking trails winding throughout the community. That doesn't cover it all but it might give you an idea of the immense opportunities provided our residents.
We just bought a resale house here this spring. So far it has been fantastic! The fitness center and the pools have been my go-to places for the past couple months. My health is already improving! Having an indoor walking track has been great for the really hot days and I can imagine it will be nice when the temps start to dip. Aside from our health improving our social life is like we're back in high school! We have meet a lot of nice people here and have jumped right in to clubs and activities. We feel encouraged by the other people living here and it's a wonderful feeling!
We moved here in 2010 and have loved every minute. It's like being on vacation every day. The amenities are fabulous. From our first visit to the community we knew it would be our new home. We've meet wonderful people here and love being involved with so many activities. If you enjoy being social and keeping busy you'll love it here!
Presently building our new home in this wonderful community, cannot wait until we move in and start this new chapter in our lives ! ! !
