Laurel Ridge Rocks

Conveniences within minutes without the hustle and bustle. Plus value that is incredible.

Why does Laurel Ridge Rock? First off, if you are looking for a quaint community with nice sized lots but not over bearing on the maintenance front, Laurel Ridge is a great choice. But there is more! Laurel Ridge has exquisite views of the golf course along with a community swimming pool, club house, shuffle board courts and more. You are 3 minutes to most major conveniences and 12 minutes to 2 hospitals. In between there is plenty of shopping and specialist for all your needs.

More importantly, the incredible value you will find on well built homes. Laurel Ridge offers homes ranging in the low to mid 100’s. The square footage for these homes is between 1,200 to 2,000 square feet. When you put pencil to paper, you are looking at roughly $85.00 a square foot pricing. The question begs, where you are going to find homes that are this new, in a great neighborhood, with a nice amenities package, this close to everything including the coast for this price point. Now, I realize that the first thing that jumps into your mind is if it is to good to be true, it probably isn’t. Well, Laurel Ridge is an exemption because there is no major highway that runs through Citrus County and so we don’t get the exposure that other areas do. Bottom line, less demand, better value.
