Lakeside Landings was mentioned up thread. We were ready to buy in to the bubble, but we wanted new construction, and did not want to be down in the Fenney area. We found Lakeside Landings almost by accident and felt at home as soon as we drove through the gates.

We don’t golf, nor do we have “3000 clubs”, but we enjoy a pretty nice lifestyle. LAkeside will have about 750 total housing units at buildout, which will likely be by the end of 2021. The new homes here are well-built, very attractive, and a great value. We don’t have a bond or CDD fees. Our HOA is $262 monthly, which includes all lawn maintenance, including trees and shrubs, landscaping, watering, and yearly remulching. We leave for summers, and it’s nice to know that the yard maintenance will be taken care of in our absence.

The Villages of Bridgeport and Lynnhaven form two of our borders. The physical layout of the community is very nice. The amenities include two pools, one of which is a grand resort-style, 2 hot tubs, and a beautiful clubhouse with a card room, billiards room, etc. The location is convenient to everything.

One con is that we do not have free access to the golf cart streets. We solved that by getting a street-legal cart. Our access point is less than 2 blocks away. Sumter and Spanish Springs are about 15-25 minutes away, respectively. Brownwood takes almost 45 minutes by cart, but less than 10 by car.

Don’t get me wrong: We like the vIllages and it’s why we came to this part of the state in the first place. We just happened to have found something that fit us better. If you’re looking for quality new construction, in a convenient location, you owe it to yourself to check out Lakeside.
