Life is short, and there’s no better way to spend it than basking in the Florida sunshine. Here at The Villages, you’re just one golf car ride away from movie theaters, boutiques, restaurants, and lavish recreation centers.
At about 20,000 acres, this gated 55+ community spans three counties, making it one of the largest in the world. Over 100,000 retirees, known as “Villagers,” call this idyllic place home.
Located about 60 miles from Orlando and just off US 301, “Florida’s Friendliest Hometown” welcomes you with open arms as you get ready for the best years of your life.
The Villages is envisioned to have more than 50,000 home sites once it’s completely built. It was hailed by Forbes Magazine as the country’s fastest growing town with a population of under 100,000 from 2007 to 2010. As testament to its desirability, 55 homes were sold within the first eight days of its opening.
The housing stock consists primarily of single-story single-family homes. There’s a good mix of new homes and pre-owned homes, all of which are finely crafted and situated near the community’s upscale amenities.
Many of these homes command scenic views and are ideal for entertaining guests. High-end appliances, maple cabinetry, and solar tube lighting are common features.
The villages here can have as many as 100 to 1,550 homes. The largest of these is Village Duval.
