Established 55+ Manufactured Home Community on Florida's Northeastern Coast is Golf Cart Friendly, Pet Friendly and Family Owned
The manufactured housing community of Moultrie Oaks emerged in 1985. Family owned and operated, it serves retirees who are age 55 or better. It is only six miles south of the nation's oldest city, charming St. Augustine, and less than 10 miles from Atlantic beaches.
Moultrie Oaks has 220 homes on 35 acres, and up to 30 new lots are planned. Pre-owned homes meet Wind Zone construction standards, and many have hurricane shutters, a carport and a screened porch. Most properties have two to three bedrooms with upgraded cabinets, flooring, and appliances.
Home prices start in the high-$100,000s. Lot rental fees are in the high-$300s to low-$400s per month. Services covered by these fees include trash removal, property tax payments and use of amenities. Utilities, lawn maintenance, tree trimming, sewer and water are paid by each resident. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they will change over time. Each homeowner may have one small, well behaved pet.
The 5,000 square foot community center has a solar heated pool, an exercise room, an activity room, as well as a fully stocked kitchen. Neighbors gather for dinners, dancing, card games, barbecues, and craft fairs. Moultrie Oaks welcomes small pets and is golf cart friendly. RV storage is also available.
Known for its historic, touristy downtown, St. Augustine supports a wide variety of restaurants, galleries, and boutiques. The Lightner Museum is packed with relics from America's Gilded Age. The St. Augustine Lighthouse, Castillo de San Marcos, and Fort Matanzas also speak to the city's rich past. Located on Anastasia Island, St. Augustine's white sand beach includes the county fishing pier, volleyball courts, and bait shops.
Flagler Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission and was named as one of America's Top 100 Community Hospitals in 2012.
Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 40s, 50s and 60s. On average, the area receives 48 inches of rain per year.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting "snowbirds" to the state in the late 19th century, and retirees continue to flock to the state today. It's not hard to see why tourism has become Florida's leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands.
Florida also has 1,045 golf courses, more than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.
Is Everyone in a 55+ Community Really 55+?
Not everyone who lives in a 55+ community is age 55 or better. Generally, at least 80% of residents must be at least age 55 (and at least one occupant of each housing unit must be age 55), while the remaining 20% are allowed to be younger (but usually at least age 45). Children are allowed to visit but generally cannot stay more than two weeks at a time. It is also usually the case that older, more established 55+ communities have an older residential demographic.
