If you are thinking about retirement and envision an active life full of fun, friends, and sun, you will want to see Lakeside Crossing. The master-planned community for active adults over 55 was established in the early 2000’s and features about 400 homes. Large lots offer scenic views of waterfronts, wooded areas, or simply have lush landscaping. An “investment trust company,” Sun Communities has built and continues to develop this neighborhood, which has ranked in the top 100 retirement communities time and again. You have the option to buy a house, rent a home, or move a manufactured home here.
Price from $69,000 to $150,000, these three and four-bedroom modular homes have all the elegant upgrades you can imagine, such as spacious front porches, screened back porches, and one-two-car garages outside, and gourmet kitchens, stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and hardwood flooring inside. The manufactured homes are 2 to 10 years old and range in size from 1100 to 1900 square feet.
In this distinctive neighborhood, buyers own their manufactured homes but not the land. Owners pay a monthly rental fee on the land which covers the use of an incredible list of amenities. The multi-million-dollar recreation center features a clubhouse, heated indoor and outdoor pools, and a hot tub. There is a 25,000 sq. ft. fitness center, library, ballroom, computer center, an onsite restaurant, and pub. Spring-fed lakes provide opportunities for fishing, boating, paddle boating, or just relaxing and catching up with neighbors at one of the waterfront gazebos. During the week, a full-time activities director provides games golfing, sports, arts and crafts, and dances. The Burning Ridge Golf Course is right next door to the delight of avid golfers. And the neighborhood is pet-friendly!
Whether your idea of the perfect retirement is sitting on your porch sipping sweet tea and chatting with friends or you prefer a more active and exciting lifestyle, this friendly, worry-free, age-restricted community is just what you are looking for.
