Established 55+ Manufactured Home Community on Florida's Northeastern Coast is Golf Cart Friendly, Pet Friendly and Family Owned and Operated
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, St. Augustine, and less than 10 miles from Atlantic beaches.
Moultrie Oaks is made up of 220 homes on 35 acres, and 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 three bedrooms with upgraded cabinets, flooring, and appliances.
Home prices start below $100,000. Lot rentals are between $305 and $350 per month. Services covered by this fee include trash removal and property tax payments. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change over time.
The 5,000 square foot community center has a 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.
It is worth noting that part of Moultrie Oaks received about a foot of water from Hurricane Irma in September, 2017. Some oak trees, carports and porches were damaged. Power went out, but structural damage to homes was minimal.
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. Parts of the downtown flooded during Hurricane Irma in September, 2016, and power outages were reported.
St. Augustine's Flagler Hospital, with 335 beds, 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.

Why Would Someone Age 55+ Retire in an All Ages Development?
While communities designed for people age 55 or better have a lot of benefits, not everyone wants to retire in a development where most of the residents are the same age and often of the same socioeconomic background. All ages community by law cannot discriminate based on age so they nearly always have a wide range of residents, from families and single professionals to empty nesters and often retirees. Many older all ages neighborhoods are organic, that is having grown over time and never having been "master planned." These usually do not have amenities such as a pool, tennis courts, etc. But more and more new all ages communities are master planned, gated, with covenants and HOA fees. Retirees often prefer these to 55+ communities because they allow more interaction with people from more cross sections of the country.
