I would contact a sales agent, and ask them to keep you up to date on upcoming plans as new villages are announced. Since you cannot predict the future, you may need to buy a house that suits your needs and rent it out until you are ready to move.
Good luck with your quest.

What CDD do you live in? That statement is absolutely not true in CDD 8 - I'm in Tamarind Grove. For example, vegetation barriers are commonly allowed which provide privacy around swimming pools. The only requirement is that the root ball of the plants must be at least 2 ft. from the side property line.

For all our benefits please publish the request you submitted to the ARC that allowed a hedge barrier so the rest of us can site you as the example since I was rejected for that. You know like how to write a proper grant request.

I wouldn't hazard any guesses at to what's being planned, although fences in select models in Southern Oaks could be indicative of things to come. Get out your Ouija board!

If that's a whippet in your avatar, I can understand you asking.
Queasy27 you are correct! That is a whippet in my avatar! At a top speed of 35 mph he isn’t as fast as a greyhound but he will chase prey for a good quarter to half mile before he even starts to slow down so a fence is a necessity!

Champion6 and thelegges you are both quite correct. My fault for not explaining my question better. The Verandas are designers with fences. What you have currently is an entire block or several blocks of Verandas in a neighborhood. Similar in fashion to the way CYV’s are always grouped together. My question if I had stated it better is do you think that at some point in the future fencing will be an upgrade option just like flooring or appliances or a bigger garage in a new home of any model no matter where your lot is? I hope that helps.

I would guess no as they are into keeping things looking the same throughout a neighborhood. It is kind of an all or nothing type of thing. If you decide not to buy a house because of that, the next person through the door will buy it so it really does not matter to them.

I can’t imagine deed restrictions would change to allow fences as part of your build. TV has a small area in Duval with ranch homes with fencing. Until the verandas were built only CYVs had fencing. My opinion is TV will have sections with fencing but I don’t think they will ever have random homes to have a fence. Don’t forget we have prey animals that a fence is not an issue when hunting. Best to buy where fence is allowed

I doubt that fences will ever be optional. Having only one or a few houses with fences in a neighborhood that otherwise has no fences makes the look of the neighborhood too variable, too heterogeneous, for Villages standards I'm sure. The Morse family seems to strictly prefer a high level of homogeneity in neighborhoods. Given their track record on selling homes here and on the continued growth in the value of homes here, they may well be right. You're more likely only to find fences in neighborhoods that are ALL fenced, now and in the future.

As I sit, I’m looking at about a 6’ tall hedge row that my back yard neighbor planted on his golf course lot. I see hedge rows everywhere!

I bought a new CYV in 2011, if Verandas were available at that time in my neighborhood I would of probably bought one. That's probably why they sell so many CYY's, the lack of available of fencing in most areas.

In our CYV community we have 80 villas, the same land space for designer homes would probably accommodate 30 designer homes if even that many. In 2011 the average price of our CYV's was $180K, the average cottage in 2011 was $180K and the average designer in 2011 was $230K - $280K on a standard lot. I believe the developer can make a lot more money selling CYV's. I believe the offering of Verandas was simply to attract buyers who might consider buying a resale in the established areas if all things were equal.
