A stretched out designer is still a designer not a premier.

Default lot size

I always thought that our home in Gilchrist had a long long driveway but we were real close to the neighbors behind us. I would have liked to have our home pushed forward and left more space behind the house.

Technically, yes. Our house was greatly increased in square footage so according to a realtor in The Villages, could sell in the future in the Premiere range. It doesn't even look like the original design and is very unique. However, we are not looking to sell anytime soon.

Age old real estate advice: Buy low in a high neighborhood, not the other way around.

I don't think the appropriate way to judge the size of a lot is by how long its driveway is. Our driveway is not all that long, it might accommodate 4 cars but our lot size is almost 9000 sq ft.

Do you know the name of the street and/or village you are talking about? Thanks.

One thing that may be impacting your perception is that spec homes are typically now built to maximize the available space on the lots. So, if a golf cart garage can be expanded to a 3rd car garage and/or the house can be stretched a couple of feet, they do it. My Veranda lot is several feet deeper than some others, and all Verandas are spec built, so my garage is extended forward a couple of feet and my lanai was expanded back a couple of feet, because there was extra room to do it. Doing this house after house, in some cases, will make them appear closer together. Why? Because expanding them makes them closer together. It's not the size of the lots, it's the size of the homes on the lots.

We just moved to the New Hampton Verandas in McClure and we love it. We had a pool at 2 different homes in Tampa for 40 years. Our Villages critera" no pool, minimal maintenance,fenced back yard for privacy, 3 car garage. All of our criteria were met in our new home. All 83 Verandas in McClure have been sold, but there are a few in in Marsh Bend and Linden - and they are going fast. Using the system of tunnels, we can use our golf cart to go to Riverbend Recreation Center, the new Everglades Regional Rec Center and Magnolia Plaza when it is completed. Eventually, we will be able to go to Brownwood, too. We are done with having a lot of property and a pool. We just want to have fun.

Everyone has a different perspective. I would not live here without a pool. The birdcage keeps it very clean and T&D comes every week to test the water and add chemicals, vacuum, clean the filter and scrub the tiles. Only 115 a month and I have a private oasis.
