Lake Ashton

Lakefront amenities and clubhouse at Lake Ashton

Florida is known for its pristine waterways and sunny weather and there's no better place to find both than at Lake Ashton. You won't find many communities that rest right off a beautiful lake and for a little extra, you could even have your very own boat slip.

If heading out on the water isn't your idea of fun, there are plenty of other activities in the community. A full 18-hole golf course, a bowling alley, a theatre room, and a restaurant with a bar are all available.

One of the more unique features of certain Lake Ashton homes are the garages that can fit an entire camper RV for those who like to travel.

Home prices at Lake Ashton range anywhere from the low $200ks to the mid $600ks. You'll also be required to pay an HOA of $60/month as well as a CDD of $270/month.

Traditions at Lake Ruby

Located right down the street from Lake Ashton is Traditions at Lake Ruby. Built by esteemed community builder Lennar, this quaint community consists of only 700 homes. Because of this, there is a tight-knit community atmosphere at Traditions at Lake Ruby.

Resting off Lake Ruby, the community center faces the water so you'll always get beautiful views as you take your morning laps in the pool.

Although there is no CDD payment required, there is a monthly HOA fee of $470. Overall, home prices are slightly lower than Lake Ashton and range from the low $200ks to the low $400ks.

Sandpiper Golf and Country Club

Sandpiper Golf & Country Club is an established, ungated community just far enough off the beaten path to feel like you're not in a major city, but close enough to the standard necessities so you won't have to travel far.

The entire public golf course and restaurant on the grounds have both been revamped to meet the needs of the community. You'll have everything you need to keep you busy like a full-sized pool, restaurant, bar, and tennis courts.

The HOA of $135 per month covers all of the previously mentioned amenities and then some. Sandpiper Golf & Country Club does not have CDD payments. Pricing typically ranges from the low $100ks to the low $300ks.

Highland Fairways

Highland Fairways stands out because of its private golf course available only to residents. It is also unique due to the mix of manufactured and single family homes. Owners of manufactured homes in Highland Fairways can rest assured that, unlike other communities, you have the benefit of owning the land your home sits on.

The clubhouse is unique as well with rich wood covering the ceilings and walls, slightly reminiscent of a Scottish pub. Although there is no restaurant, the low monthly HOA fee of $198 and no CDD fees make Highland Fairways one of the most affordable of any community on this list.

You'll find homes anywhere between the low $200ks and high $200ks so the overall price you pay is one of the lowest you'll find.
