Large, Gated 55+ Community in West Central Florida Has Good Selection of Homes and Outstanding Amenities
G.L. Homes has a number of communities in Florida, and 25 miles southeast of Tampa, Wimauma is the site of the gated, 55+ community of Valencia Lakes. This is a well-designed town home and single family home development with a Mediterranean flavor. Lushly landscaped, it has lakes and well manicured green spaces.
Valencia Lakes started in 2005 and currently has about 1,550 homes. It sits next to Sun City Center and is still being built. Residences are single-story, and they come in a wide range of prices and floor plans. Square footage ranges from roughly 1,320 sq. ft. (town homes) to nearly 3,000 sq. ft. (single family homes). All residences come with two, three or four bedrooms. Many residences overlook one of the many lakes.
Prices start in the low-$200,000s. Please verify these prices with a Realtor or the community, as prices may change. Rentals are few but do become available occasionally.
Standard home features include an alarm system, a skid-resistant bath tub, a medical emergency call system, lever door handles, a raised vanity in the bathroom, a gourmet kitchen, ceramic floor tile and/or wall to wall carpet, marble window sills, driveway brick pavers, a fully sodded lawn and more. Homes also have an attached two or three car garage.
The eye-catching entry gate has a bridge and floating fountains. It is also manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Amenities are top-notch and include a 27,000 square feet clubhouse with a resort-style pool, state of the art fitness center, an art studio, an internet cafe, saunas, a social hall, a wine bar, a half-court basketball court, tennis courts, bocce ball courts, an aerobic studio and more.
A full time activities director makes sure there are always activities taking place, and dozens of clubs and events, everything from clay sculpting to movie nights to a drama club, keep residents busy. There is also a dog park and RV parking and storage. The HOA fee include access to all community amenities, security patrol, cable TV and front and back lawn maintenance.
Wimauma does not have a hospital, but South Bay Hospital is just 5 minutes away in Sun City Center. It is accredited by the Joint Commission and accepts Medicare patients.
The climate is what would be expected in Florida. Summer temperatures reach into the 90s, and winter temperatures are generally in the 50s and 60s. The area receives, on average, 55 inches of rain per year.
