5350 Monarch Blvd., Leesburg, Florida 34748
Quiet, Established 55+ Community in North Central Florida is Nestled Among Lakes, Wetlands and Open Spaces
Set amid blue lakes and green spaces in pastoral north central Florida, Leesburg is the location of Royal Highlands. This established, gated 55+ community has 1,500 single family homes and was built by Pringle from 1999 to 2006.
A quiet community, Royal Highlands spreads across 1,100 acres, although homes are situated on only about two thirds of this area. The rest of the land is devoted to the golf course and to conservation. Wetlands and bodies of water dot the development and are home to birds and other wildlife. Residences come in dozens of floor plans and range from about 1,200 square feet to nearly 3,000 square feet. Each home has an attached garage, from two to four bedrooms and from two to three baths. Some homes have a screened-in porch and an in-ground swimming pool. Nearly all dwellings are single story, and many sit along the golf course or next to preserved land. Lot sizes range from smallish with a tree or two to expansive with a long driveway.
Prices start in the mid-$100,000s. Check with the community or a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change. A few homes are for lease, too.
The Monarch Golf Course, semi-private and member-owned, opened in 1997. It has 18 holes, a pro shop and a restaurant. Royal Highlands residents enjoy discount green fees.
In addition to the golf course, the community boasts two clubhouses, a fitness center, two swimming pools and more. Social activities are in good supply, too, because Royal Highlands has a full time activities director. Holiday parties, monthly breakfasts, theater events, concerts and more ensure that homeowners stay active. Residents also have a reputation for being welcoming of community newcomers.
Leesburg is an hour away from the Gulf Coast beaches and an hour away from the endless amenities of Orlando. This makes it an ideal location for a peaceful retirement with plenty of activities nearby. And the city's hospital, Leesburg Regional Medical Center, is accredited by the Joint Commission.
Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, while winter temperatures are in the 50s and 60s. On average, the area receives 48 inches of rain per year.
