Would not be the first cemetery in TV.

It is if you are in the market for a new house, and most are being built in the Fenney area.

Since 468 is going to be 4 lanes all the way down now, those lots would not have been suitable for residential homes. I don't know if you noticed but The Villages Golf Cars has a storefront on 468 now, it's on the North Side in the same building as State Farm Insurance. None of us living down here like those homes that are in desperate need of repair but they were here first and I'm sure had an opportunity to sell before the building plans were finalized. They will most likely get more for their properties than were originally offered by TV now that small commercial developers know what is going on down here.
Thank you for this information. It will be a while before it's all said and done but it sounds like the area will be wonderful.

I agree to everything you said. Unless a corridor such as 441/27 will be in the future for points south, I would not consider purchasing a home in the Southern Oaks area. I prefer to be a "hop, skip and a jump" to all the restaurants and stores that dot the 441/27 corridor which runs through The Villages.

I really don't care about the stores, I'm close to Ace and Lowes and that's all I personally care about. There are plenty of restaurants within a 10 minute drive of Fenney and many more in Leesburg. There are malls south of Leesburg, can't remember the name of the town but great shopping down there and now with 501 opened to 470, shortcuts have appeared. These stores and chain restaurants that you are concerned about will be down here somewhere in the very near future, retailers would be foolish not to take advantage of the tens of thousands of homeowners that are on their way to Fenney and Southern Oaks. There is a lot of commercial land on the southwest side of Leesburg and that is where I see it going which is great as long as it is not too close to cause traffic such as on 441/27 up north. Build it and they will come, not Sears of course. Come on down and enjoy the south, most of us will never have an opportunity to see any thing like what is happening here for the rest of our lives, watching it happen is part of the fun. I always look forward to GoldwingNut's drone videos as the landscape changes so much in a very short period of time. They are closing 468 between 501 and 301 Monday and Tuesday nights and by the looks of it the 4-lanes are starting to be worked on.

FYI, Lowes and Home Depot are not the same. And, the new Lowes is 5,000 square feet smaller than the Lady Lake Lowes. I have already visited the new Lowes on more than one occasion and then had to go to Home Depot to get what I needed.

It is a problem if you want to buy a new house, and almost all the new houses are being built in the Fenney area. I don't care about the town squares or rec centers, but I want to be close to shopping and restaurants. I understand that some people may not care about that.

I agree with you.

We live in Osceola Hills and we are very impressed with what is happening around Fenney. We love playing golf at Grey Fox, we love the new practice area at Loblolly, and we love the new walking trails that do not allow golf carts.

We often go there on Sunday and walk thru the areas under construction. The new "pitch and putt" course is looking a lot more interesting than we thought it would be.

If we are there on a work day, we can get tacos at the food truck (near Willow Tree pool) we used to frequent when our house was being built in Osceola Hills. They use a great hot sauce.

Before I moved here there were Lowe's and Home Depot's within a half mile of each other. Personally I did not like Home Depot. I am very satisfied getting what I need at the new smaller Lowes, Ace in Wildwood and for a real treat spar's on 44. I didn't come down here to build a barn and I can't think of anything I have needed in the last year and half that I couldn't find at Ace, Spars, or Lowe's after it opened. I would assume a lot of people prefer Home Depot but I'm sure there are just as many that prefer Lowes.
