When you think of Florida, it’s inevitable that images of sandy beaches come to mind, but that’s not all the Sunshine state has to offer active retirees. There are acres of pristine fields and forests just waiting for exploration and when you move to the newest Triology community in Ocala, FL, it will all be right outside your doorstep.
Ocala is located in North Central Florida, which gives you access to both the Gulf beaches and the Atlantic Ocean, depending on which direction you want to travel that day. It will only take about an hour and a half, but when you’ve got so much to do right in the community, you may find you’ve wiled away the summer before touching the sand.
Trilogy at Ocala is set amongst 632 acres of rolling Florida hills and horse country. Not quite sounding like the Florida you picture on the postcards? That’s because it’s not—and Trilogy’s site puts it best: “Southern charm, tradition and heritage defines the famed Ocala area, rich in culture, nature and history with an ideal warm and sunny climate, perfect for year-round activities.”
Although the Ocala complex is still in the development stage, Shea Homes, the founder of various Trilogy communities throughout the country, is a well-recognized company. Founded in the 1960’s as part of the JF Shea Family of Companies, this division is committed to building quality homes, not houses. They say, “our passion for making people happy extends well beyond the ‘sticks and bricks’ of traditional homebuilding, and shows itself in everything we do.” In addition to fostering active adult communities throughout the state, Shea Homes is committed to public service, participating in outreach initiatives like the “Read with Your Child” literacy program.
Once the Ocala complex is complete, it will boast a golf course, luxury club house, and a variety of living options to suit the ever-changing dynamics of family. This Orlando Trilogy retirement community boasts a plethora of clubs like bible study, photography classes, and a beer club, to name a few. The main clubhouse features several dining options, a state of the art fitness center, health spa, and other amenities. A sports pavilion houses tennis courts and there are several pools to help residents cool off during the hot Florida summers. If Orlando’s features are any indication of what’s to come at Ocala, future residents will surely be in for a treat.
But right now, Trilogy is looking for your help! If you’re interested in moving to the charming north Florida area and are thinking about calling Ocala your home, why not sit in on one of the Trilogy Living Vision Sessions. “During these unique, industry-leading sessions, you will have the exclusive opportunity to share your ideas, opinions, and creativity” with the master planners of the community.
