I always have buyers looking for a retirement home and an item high on their wish list is a nice view. Most retirement communities are laid out with parallel streets and the homes are back to back. This is especially true of newer communities. If you think about it this makes a lot of sense. The builder gets a maximum number of homes on his land.
There are options for what you’ll see in back of a 55+ home.
1. A house right behind you, which is by far the most common.
2. A house right behind you screened by a buffer of trees or shrubs. In this case you’ll still see you neighbor to some extent
3. A view of woods. You find this in a home located on the outside perimeter of a community.
4. A golf course view. This is a premium lot that adds a great deal to the price of a new home but you do find deals on resales.
Some of your best bets for finding a home with out another home directly in back of you are Oak Run and Ocala Palms. Oak Run isn’t laid out with parallel streets. It is divided into neighborhoods and a lot of homes face a buffer between these neighborhoods. Ocala Palms was set out to maximize the number of golf course lots. There are great prices on homes with golf course frontage in Ocala Palms.
If you’re interested in Ocala 55+ retirement homes then either call me, email me or better yet use my Ocala Dream Home Finder.
