Candler Hills is an active 55+ golf course community located in SW Ocala. Candler Hills is a newer part of the On Top of the World Communities. The homes here are of concrete block and stucco construction and built within the last few years. There are new homes for sale and quite a few resales. Resales are in the $150-250,000- range. HOA fees are currently $210.00 per month and include a 24 hour guard at the gate, common area maintenance, curb side trash pickup, basic cable and high speed internet, access to On Top of the World amenities, discount golf fees, the Candler Hills clubhouse and heated outdoor pool. Candler Hills is a golf cart community meaning you can drive your cart down the road. As a matter of fact you could drive all the way to a super market if you were so inclined. You are not allowed to finance more than 80% of the purchase price of a home here.

Update 2-29-12 There were 10 sales in 20111. Prices ranged from $120,000- for a 1583 sq ft home built in 05 up to $225,000- for a 1888 sq ft home with a ton of upgrades. Candler Hills has CDD bonds that add around $800- yr to your taxes. Most sales in 2011 were between $140K and $170K. Considering these prices and the build quality Candler Hills is an excellent buy.

Update 2-12-2013 HOA fees are $224- month. There were 12 sales in 2012. The lowest was a rare foreclosure that went for $82,000-. The next lowest was $130,000- for a 1705 sqft 3/2/2. The highest sale was $228,000- for a 2087 sqft 3/2/2.

Update 6/14 HOA fees are $234- month. New homes being built in Candler Hills West do not have the CDD bonds that are found in Candler Hills East where all the resales are located. The median price for a resale in 2014 so far is $94- sqft of living area. That is a great price compared to new construction. Candler Hills has very high quality and very energy efficient newer homes and I think they are a bargain at the present time.

  • I am looking for a 55 plus community block built home. I also have a 100 lb dog and4cats so they must take pets thanks

  • Joe Dallorso says:

    I need to know more about what you want in a home & I will email you.

    Candler Hills does allow dogs as do most 55+ communities. In Candler Hills you could also go to the On Top of the World dog park. However as a large dog owner myself I wonder about the logistics of having a big dog in many 55+ communities. In any 55+ you’d have to keep your cats indoors.

  • looking for a large resale home very interested in a courtyard home

  • Joe Dallorso says:

    A court yard home isn’t a style common to this area

    Will send listings There are pool homes in candler Hills but not many and generally in the higher price ranges

  • Cheryl says:

    I have heard various things about OTOTW as far as who owns the land. Are there areas of the community where the homeowner also owns the land? Also I have a listing cart…..how do I change my parameters. After doing more research we have a better idea of what we need and want.

  • Joe Dallorso says:

    Hi

    You own the land in the Candler Hills and Indigo East parts of On Top of the World but not in On Top of the World itself. If you already have a Listing Cart you need to email me and I will have to change your search parameters for you
