Our Thoughts on Kings Ridge
Having experience with real estate transactions in Kings Ridge and being residents of Clermont, we have a few honest and personal thoughts on Kings Ridge.
Here are 7 points we think you should consider when looking at Kings Ridge.
- Kings Ridge is a beautiful neighborhood. It’s aesthetically gorgeous with huge, mature trees everywhere you look. In addition, the golf course was tastefully planned as the neighborhood winds around the course and nearly every turn is a glimpse of the beautiful course.
- Lennar did a great job on the outside of the homes. They are timeless and beautiful. The architectural style is diverse and all of the homes are very well maintained. Kings Ridge has a classic look that few neighborhoods in Clermont can rival.
- The interior of many homes are outdated. We have to be honest about this. Because many of the homes were built in the late 1990’s for a 55+ community of people entering retirement phases of their lives, so very few homes have been updated to current and modern trends. Fixed incomes don’t always translate to interior renovations.
- Kings Ridge has a spectacular entrance and it feels luxurious and grand. We would love to come home everyday to an entrance like this with a 24 hour, guarded gate.
- There are medical offices right outside the main gates which is really terrific and convenient; residents drive their golf cart to the primary care physician. It’s more than one or two offices, it’s more like a medical corridor.
- There is a special entrance to the Publix grocery store from the neighborhood. This is both convenient and golf-cart accessible. Publix even has golf-cart parking spots which is fantastic.
- Kings Ridge is only 1 of 2 55+ golf course communities in Clermont and Kings Ridge is the only active one (Summit Greens hasn’t been functional for years).
