I was recently in a 30 year old house in the Orange Blossom section. The water shutoff valve was on the water pipe that entered the house next to the water heater near the kitchen. Yes, most houses have a valve outside, but they also usually have one inside the house. I would check where the main pipe comes into the house and see if it may be hidden somewhere. The Florida code requires the valve to be located "at the entrance to the structure", so, I guess technically, it could be located outside. However, I have not seen any houses in The Villages that didn't have a valve inside the house.
