Unique Retirement Communities: Lake Weir Living

With a listing of all the senior living options in North America, SeniorAdvisor.com’s in a good position to spot those doing something special. In our monthly Unique Retirement Communities series, we feature senior communities doing something that stands out from the pack. This time, we take a look at Lake Weir Living!

People work hard their whole lives, often keeping an idealized image of the nicer life they’ll get to enjoy once they retire top of mind. One too many seniors that spent years imagining a retirement life customized to their particular lifestyles and preferences have found themselves limited due to the HOA rules common to many communities.

You finally have all the time you could want to tinker with your motorcycle, take advantage of owning a boat, or spend your days with a furry friend, so why live in a community where doing so can come with fines and demands to give up the things you love?

The Lake Weir Preserve provides a space for seniors that want to live their dreams without the interference of all those fees and rules. It’s located in a beautiful area of Florida, so residents get a dose of natural beauty along with the freedom to pursue their passions.

Who It’s For

Lake Weir Living is for anybody that gets excited by the idea of life without an HOA, but it particularly attracts seniors that like their toys: motorcycles, boats, old cars and RVs. The lack of restrictions – many HOA communities won’t allow residents to park boats or RVs in the neighborhood – plus the beautiful surrounding area with rolling hills and a nearby beach, adds up to an ideal retirement home for those who like to tinker with and explore the world via their various vehicles.

What Makes it Different

The main differentiating factor has already been mentioned: the promise of no rules or restrictions. You can own and build what you what, where you want, when you want. You didn’t make it all the way to retirement to be told by others how to live your life.

In addition, residents typically have their houses built anew in the community, so you can specify exactly how your home looks. This level of customization means that you can build a garage big enough to house a boat or any other large item you’d like to be able to work on in that space. The builders specialize in custom garages ideal for housing different types of items, like those with space for several cars for the collector, or even one large enough to hold an RV.  

The main theme of the community really boils down to: have it your way. You can work with the builders to customize your home to whatever you value most. Whether you want a pool, plenty of space for a big garden, or a comfortable home fit for your six beloved pets, the Lake Weir builders will work with you.

In addition to being located in the midst of a lot of beautiful nature, the community is also located close to lots of places to eat, shop, and enjoy a night out, so whenever you choose to leave your customized home, you still have plenty of options for nearby things to do.

Think You’re Interested?

The community has room for new homes to be built for residents who feel it’s the right fit for them. If you think you might be interested, the next step is simply reaching out to the developers at www.lakeweirliving.com for more information.
