Cascades at Southen Hills Plantation
19724 Fort King Run, Brooksville, Florida 34601
The Cascades, a Gated 55+ Neighborhood within the Elegant Southern Hills Plantation, has Single Story Homes, a Beautiful Golf Course and a Full Service Spa
About an hour north of Tampa and 15 miles east of the Chassahowizka National Wildlife Refuge, which is along Florida's mid-Gulf Coast, quiet Brooksville is the site of Cascades at Southern Hills Plantation. This established, gated 55+ community is a part of the elegant, larger all ages development of Southern Hills Plantation.
Levitt and Sons started the Cascades in 2005, and original plans called for 800 homes. Subsequently, Levitt and Sons filed for bankruptcy, and two other builders, Oak Crest Homes and Lennar Homes, completed the community in 2012 but scaled back its size.
Today only 190 single family homes are here, giving the Cascades a coziness not found in larger developments. The landscape is wooded, with small ponds dotting the grounds.
The attractive homes are all single story and have from approximately 1,300 square feet to 2,300 square feet with two to three bedrooms and two to three baths. The architecture is traditional, and exteriors are concrete block and stucco with some vinyl trim.
Each home has an attached two car garage that faces the street. Doorways are recessed and are placed next to a small, covered front porch. Many properties have upgrades that include maple cabinets, granite countertops, hardwood floors and a screened-in porch. Prices begin in the mid-$100,000s and top out in the high-$200,000s. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change.
One of the perks of being part of a larger community is the access to more amenities. Cascades homeowers enjoy the Southern Hills Plantation's 20,000 square foot, resort-style clubhouse with its full service restaurant, full service spa, lagoon edge pool, Har Tru tennis courts and state of the art fitness center. Numerous social clubs keep residents happy and active.
One reason that people live and retire here is the beautiful 18-hole Pete Dye Signature Golf Course, which winds through the Cascades and gives many homes a fairway view. The course has been named by Golf Week as one of the top residential golf courses in the nation.
Brooksville is a rural place with some historic homes along cobblestone streets. It was once known as the "Home of the Tangerine," but these days is known for its annual blueberry festival.
Bayfront Health Brooksville is accredited by the Joint Commission.
Summer high temperatures usually top out in the mid-90s. Winter temperature highs are in the 60s and 70s. On average, the area receives 50 inches of rain per year.
