Retirees Enjoy Colorful Manufactured Home Community Outside of Historic St. Augustine, Florida

In Elkton, just fifteen minutes southwest of St. Augustine on Florida's northeastern coast, is Coquina Crossing, a gated (and manned), award-winning manufactured home community for those 55 and above. Opened in 1994, this is a land-lease development, so housing prices are on the inexpensive side because homeowners must pay a monthly lot fee. There are 1,300 homes, all single family, in a variety of colors (blue, green, yellow, etc.), each with siding exteriors and an attached garage.

 

 

Home prices start at $69,900, which will purchase a small bungalow with two bedrooms and one bath. The community's average price us around $150,000, for which a homebuyer receives approximately 1,500 sq. ft., three bedrooms and two baths. The most expensive homes top out in the high $100,000s and include up to 2,080 sq. ft., three bedrooms and two baths. Lot/HOA fees average $400 per month, which includes access to all the amenities, as well as lawn mowing and maintenance. Homeowners are responsible for paying their own utilities and homeowner's insurance. 

 

Amenities are excellent. Golf is a primary activity, but a 28,000 sq. ft. clubhouse offers even more to do and houses a grand ballroom (which can accommodate 300 guests), a lounge, fine and casual dining, billiards, a card room, a woodworking shop, a sewing room, tennis courts, a hot tub, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a fully equipped fitness center. A full-time activities director is on staff to provide recreational opportunities, organized activities and other events for those who are so inclined. The community also features a formal, gated entrance.   For more information, visit www.mhvillage.com/Communities/MobileHomePark.php?key=51621

Residents enjoy a lovely 17,000 sq. ft. clubhouse (whitewashed exterior with a red roof) that houses two swimming pools, a library, a fitness center, a game room, a spa, a large kitchen and a ballroom. There is also a business center, an arts and crafts work room and secure RV storage. The community has numerous clubs, and social activities are scheduled throughout the year, all planned and coordinated by a full time activities director. Pets are welcome, although some restrictions apply.

Florida's great beaches are just 10 miles to the east of Coquina Crossing, and wonderful St. Augustine, with all of its history and delightful shops, restaurants and pubs, is always a fun place to spend the day (it is also home to an extension of the Mayo Clinic), and Jacksonville (population 1.3 million in the surrounding metro area), 35 minutes to the north, is the place for big-city amenities and everything from professional football (the Jaguars) to world class live theater.

Coquina Crossing also has a program to entice potential buyers to come test out the community. Named "Experience the Lifestyle," it is $99 for a two night stay as long as a tour is taken (without the tour, the cost is $259). Home price reductions are also being offered.
