Kar Guy -

When we go down Sept. 5th to purchase, we will be there only until the 9th. I'm sure we will find the right home in that time frame. Then we drive down 1 step ahead of the movers the end of September. I should have an address etc when we get home on the 9th. I will certainly make sure you have our address, phone number (we are getting cell phones (yeh, I know..We are the very last who don't have them yet) for the trip down. We will hook up no doubt about it!!!! Oh and Kar Guy....You and your wife can bring over a bottle of wine or a six pack and help us open boxes!!! :joke: :joke: (Oh come on, that sounds like fun, doesn't it!!!!) :bigthumbsup:

Don't laugh Bama, Donna, Karen, Nancy etc.....your invited too!!!! :beer2:

DD Better hold the beer, wine, and champagne in reserve until all boxes are unpacked. Would love to help you. I too will be down with a truck load (1 of 2 ) around Sept 24th, will be there for the week. :beer2:

LTM: My home is in Duval on Day Lily Run, Does Duval have any type of website? When we were searching for a home we went by the pool and saw something on the bulletin board for the village of duval. Dumb me did not write it down, then a senior moment kicked in and I forgot the site. Is there something, directory, happenings, social gatherings.. Thanks :hot:

Okay, I am a little confussed. I have been looking at MLS listings on the internet. I found some villas that appeared to not have the privacy fence and then I found what looked like ranches with the fence. What is what? I thought the villas were the only houses that had a private backyard and that all villas had private backyards?

Can someone please explain this?

Patio villas do not have the privacy fences.

I can understand your confusion. :dontknow:
Patio Villas have white picket fences in front of them. They don't have a fenced backyard.
Courtyard Villas have an enclosed courtyard as their side/back lawn. They come in both frame and stucco. As LG pointed out, some CVs have a partial fence if they have a Preserve or Golf View.
Any dwelling, Ranch and Patio Villa included, could possibly have a fence in back if it happens to back on a Courtyard Villa .. you would be backing to their fence. (But no fence down the sides).

Yes, I do understand your confusion!! Once you've looked at 132 listings (as probably most of us have), you'll see the difference. Good luck! ;D
