Retirees Enjoy Quiet Lifestyle in Affordable Florida Active Adult Manufactured Home Community That is Close to Beaches, Golf and Racing

Nestled on 115 shady acres in quiet Flagler Beach, Florida (population 6,800), Plantation Oaks is a newer active adult manufactured home community. The land that is now home to this gated (manned 24-hours) development was once known as Bulowville, a grand, early 19th century sugar and cotton plantation. After the mansion and outbuilding were burned by Seminole Indians in 1836, the land reverted to its natural state, covered with thick oaks and magnolia trees. Today these lush surroundings provide shade and seclusion for the residents of Plantation Oaks.

 

 

Numerous homes are for sale for less than $100,000, but the median selling price is around $95,000 to $100,000. This median price will fetch 2 to 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, roughly 1,600 sq. ft., all appliances, air conditioning, ceramic tile floors, ceiling fans and lots of windows. The most expensive home for sale has 2,856 sq. ft., 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, air conditioning, a wine cooler, a lanai with a hot tub, a tray ceiling in the dining room, wood floors, upgraded appliances and a 4-car garage with its own air conditioning.

All of the homes here are in good shape. Lawns are tidy and professionally landscaped; streets are well-lit. All residences have concrete driveways and carports or garages. Many homes, not just the most expensive, have glass-enclosed lanais, which add to the square footage of each home, and a good number of dwellings come furnished. 

 

Homeowners here lease the land upon which their dwellings sit; a dwelling's lot lease depends on the home's location in the development. Homes that are back to back have leases that are in the low-$400s per month; homes that back onto the woods have leases that range from the high-$400s per month. Lot leases include lawn maintenance, cable TV, garbage pick-up, water and infrastructure upkeep.   Visit www.plantationoaks.com for more information.

Plantation Oaks has an expansive, million dollar community center; this is the place where residents gather for a variety of activities, including tennis, billiards, croquet and bocce. There is also an oversized heated pool and whirlpool spa, a kitchen, a gym and a library. 

Perhaps, though, one of the best aspects of retiring to Plantation Oaks is its location. Wonderful St. Augustine, Florida, steeped in history, is just 30 miles north, and pretty Ormond Beach is just 15 miles south. Flagler Beach, a quiet stretch of white sand, is five miles to the east. Orlando, a great place to take the grandkids and home to Disney World, is 65 miles west. NASCAR racing is 20 minutes south in Daytona Beach. 

Closer to home, in fact adjacent to Plantation Oaks itself, is Bulow Plantation Ruins State Historic Site, which houses the remnants of the thriving 4,600-acre plantation that once stood here. Bulow Creek is a great fishing spot, and for golfers, the Halifax Plantation Golf Club is two miles away; four other courses are a short drive away, and the New International Golf Village is in St. Augustine. The town of Flagler Beach, while small, is home to Flagler Regional Plaza, a good-sized shopping venue. The crime rate is above the national average.

 

 

The climate is what would be expected in Florida. Summer temperatures reach into the 90s F. (low 70s F. at night); winter temperatures are in the 50s and 60s F. The area receives 3 to 7 inches of rain per month. Morning humidity is around 90%, but drops to an average of 65% by afternoon. The sun shines 255 days of the year.
