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

Nestled on 115 shady acres in quiet Flagler Beach, Florida (population 6,800), Plantation Oaks is a 55+ manufactured home community. The land that is now home to this gated 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.

 

 

All of the 377 homes are in good shape and most were built in the early-2000s.  Lawns are tidy and professionally landscaped.  Streets are well-lit.  All residences have a concrete driveway and a carport or garage.  Many residences, not just the most expensive, have glass-enclosed lanais or a porch, which adds to the square footage of each home.  Some of the dwellings come furnished.   Home sizes range from around 900 square feet to more than 2,800 square feet, and they have two to three bedrooms.   Prices start in the $30s.   Check with the community to verify these prices as they may change. 

Homeowners here lease the land upon which their dwellings sit; a dwelling's lot lease depends on the home's location in the development.   Lot leases include lawn maintenance, cable TV, garbage pick-up, water and infrastructure upkeep.

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, steeped in history, is just 30 miles to the 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 to the 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 ten miles away.  Four other courses are a short drive away, and World Golf Village is in St. Augustine.  

The nearest accredited hospital, Florida Hospital Flagler, is 15 miles away in Palm Coast.

The climate is what would be expected in Florida.  Summer temperatures reach into the 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 50s and 60s.   The area receives 50 inches of rain per year, on average.
