If the first five Minto communities we shared with last month weren’t enough to make you want to move (immediately) to the Sunshine State, perhaps these next five will do the trick. Minto’s specialty is delivering luxurious living, and these last five communities do not fall short.
MINTO SUN CITY CENTER
Sun City Center is unique resort style living in the Tampa Bay-St. Petersburg area of Florida. This premier 55 and better community has been named a Where to Retire magazine Hall of Fame community, and for good reason. The community offers luxurious maintenance free living in four different options: paired villas, Country Club living, single family homes, and estate homes.
But that’s not all. Golfers can enjoy 126 holes of golf spread out over six courses, the greens managed and owned by ClubLink Corporation, ensuring that you’re always playing on pristine courses. Other sports activities include fourteen tennis courts, four rec centers, and a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa.
Sun City Center will definitely keep you fit, and the community will also keep you social. With over 200 clubs and organizations to choose from, you’re bound to find that perfect club for you. You also have arts, entertainment, shopping, fine dining, and Tampa Bay and Sarasota beaches within reach.
This Florida community is Port St. Lucie’s premier gated community situated within the master-planned community of Tradition. You can’t beat the views here, with the community sitting within 400 acres of lakes and waterways, parks, and playground—all connected by miles of pathways.
In 2009 TownPark was ranked number 10 by Portfolio.com among the Best Places to Retire in the US. And with the gorgeous single family and estate homes, and abundance of amenities it’s easy to see why TownPark got such a ranking.
Tradition Square, where you’ll find exceptional dining, shopping, festivals, and concerts is only a short walk or bike ride away from your front door. On site, the clubhouse is equipped with a fitness center, billiard parlor, resort-style pool, tennis, basketball and bocce courts, pickleball, horseshoes, and a staff that is ready to organize a variety of fun activities when you’re looking for a little more.
TownPark is only a short drive to Jenson Beach, the town of Stuart, and Florida Atlantic University. Whether you’re wanting to get your toes in the sand, further your education, or explore the town, this Minto community can deliver all that you need.
THE ISLES OF COLLIER PRESERVE
If shopping is your game, the location of the Isles of Collier Preserve couldn’t be any more perfect. Only minutes from downtown Naples and the famed 5th Avenue shopping, you’ll be able to experience some of the best shopping around. Water lovers will also find this Minto community enticing. Sharing the shores of Rookery Bay Nature Preserve with the Collier Preserve, you’ll find a private yacht club and marina that offers memberships and deepwater access to the Gulf of Mexico.
With half of the 2,400 acres dedicated to lakes, nature preserves and natural habitats, there will always be stunning views no matter where you look. Collier Preserve’s single family and coach homes offer water and nature views, too.
The centerpiece and social focal point of the community, though, is The Club. Here you’ll find tennis, fitness, pool, and Overlook Bar & Grill that provides waterfront views of Cypress Waterway. There are also walking and biking trails, and a boathouse, dock, and kayak launch. You can take a complimentary guided boat tour every Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
