Retirement communities are common throughout the state of Florida. This is due in part to the number of people who retire to Florida in their senior years, as well as the high number of “snow birds” who flock to Florida during the winter months for its milder climate.
Many of Florida’s retirement communities have garnered a reputation for their opulent clubhouses, lists of amenities, and scheduled activities to keep the residents busy and socializing. Lake Ashton, from CRF Communities, is no exception. Our exclusive active adult luxury resort is located in the quaint town of Lake Wales between the bustling hot spots of Tampa and Orlando. Our 12,000 acre resort is only a short ride to the central Florida’s famous theme parks or the magnificent beaches on either coast.
Our award winning resort offers a variety of floor plans from a series of smaller vacation homes for those who only plan to live in Florida part of the year, to the Green Islander series for those seniors looking to be environmentally conscious with an energy efficient home. We even have Motor Coach models with specially designed garages for housing Class A motor homes.
Once a floor plan is selected, buyers then work with our talented design team at Lake Ashton to create their retirement dream home. With over fifty years combined experience, our designers can help with everything from the structural decisions, such as custom closets, built in entertainment centers, and sky lights, as well as the cosmetic decisions, such as flooring, cabinets, countertops, and paint colors.
One look at the grand Clubhouse and buyers will see how Lake Ashton raised the bar for retirement communities. The 26,000 square foot clubhouse features full dining and lounge facilities for residents dining pleasure, as well as a Grand Ballroom for social functions. The Clubhouse doesn’t stop there! Residents also get full use of the four lane bowling center, movie theater with surround sound, library, game room, billiard room, arts and crafts room (complete with a kiln), and a computer lab. Outside, our residents can enjoy the Florida sunshine from the splendid, oversized swimming pool or adjacent spa.
Florida Retirement communities encourage an active lifestyle, through our available amenities and scheduled activities. At Lake Ashton, our state of the art Health and Fitness Center takes up 30,000 square feet and includes an on-staff personal trainer and nutritionist as well as an indoor heated pool, an indoor track, indoor basketball court, a weight room, sports and aerobic spaces, a racquetball court, a sauna, and a massage therapist.
For the golfer, Lake Ashton has two championship 18-hole private golf courses, a sports pub, pro shop, and driving range. Additional outdoor amenities include lighted tennis and shuffleboard courts, a boat ramp and docks, a storage area for boats and RVs and a wood-working and hobby shop.
When shopping Florida’s retirement communities, a buyer only needs one look at Lake Ashton and they are ready to call it home.
