Weren't we all Newbies once?
BTW what real difference does it make, to you?

You would be surprised how many of the residents down here came from northern villages. Our street has 7 homes and 3 of them came down to buy their second or third Villages home in Fenney and this was early in 2017 when everyone was bashing it. There are literally hundreds of home owners down here if not thousands that are not newbies or first time buyers and the setbacks don't seem to bother them. Not living down here doesn't allow you to realize how much you gain by giving up a little lawn.

I wouldn't mind giving up a little lawn. The less lawn the better for me. It is the driveway that I don't want to give up. We need the longer driveway to be able to park a car (sometimes) and still get the golf cart out of the garage. We can do this with ease with our long driveway. And......I have neighbors with longer driveways than mine.

My driveway is about 30 ft long, I didn't measure it but my 25 foot motorhome fits when I bring it home with room to spare. There are no driveways down here that would not allow for a car to be parked while taking out a golf car unless it's a villa.

Absolutely, We were all newbies at one time. I think it’s a lovely area & we almost purchased a lot in Marsh Bend.
All I was referring to was the difference in the size/length of the driveways. When you’re new to an area you wouldn’t realize certain changes that the builders have made. Also, as mentioned, there are many repeat village purchasers who’ve moved out there and love the differences. Homes are selling quickly & everyone’s happy with their personal choices.

Lot’s sizes have definitely been reduced per a realtor we spoke to. No thanks, we’ll stay where we are.

Where do the Mexicans eat? That should be the best around.

My guess is that the land cost more than they wanted to pay so they jammed in more homes to recoup their initial investment.

Definitely appears closer to the road and more density. Lots and lots of villas. Some of these changes appear to satisfy a need on the part of buyers, i,e. Fenced in yards, which is great if you have a dog.
