Situated on the shores of the restful waters of Lake Ashton, you will a find one of the top retirement communities in Florida. Designed by the nationally recognized residential community planner, Century Residential, Lake Ashton retirement community is a sought after retirement living destination in the heart of Central Florida. Only a short drive from the larger, bustling cities of Tampa and Orlando, this Lake Wales gem is a sight to behold and it is easy to see why it is considered one of the best places to live.
The term ‘retirement community’ has gained a whole new meaning in the last few decades. Retirees now seek the best places to live, where they can commune and socialize with other like-minded retirees. They look for places where they can play where they live. Simple over 55 golf course communities have evolved into gated neighborhoods, housing almost everything a resident might want to enjoy daily in life. Lake Ashton is a perfect example of this and is definitely among the best places to live.
Our active adult community has a bevy of amenities to keep its residents busy all year round. The sparkling waters of Lake Ashton offer the perfect spot for boating, fishing, sailing, or skiing. The community offers a private boat ramp, boat docks, and boat slips. Residents can also watch the sun go down over the gleaming lake while taking an after dinner stroll or bicycle ride along the scenic trail.
Today’s retirees are looking for things to do and they are looking to live this next hard earned phase of their life to the fullest. At Lake Ashton we boast a 26,000 square foot Clubhouse.
