Oxford, Fla. – (March 25, 2021) Finer Florida communities never embraced the rise of mobile home parks, yet there is a reason Simple Life cottage communities are so popular in areas such as The Villages® and Punta Gorda. Simple Life communities are not a mobile home parks. These boutique communities provide the cost and lifestyle benefits of manufactured housing, but are far superior to a mobile home park.
With the inspiration to deliver a unique and entirely new offering with an affordable lifestyle focused community, Simple Life has created Lakeshore, just outside the Villages® in Oxford, Florida. Lakeshore’s alternative housing and hybrid zoning model captures the benefits of manufactured housing without the look and feel of mobile homes. The quality and finish of our Tiny Home Cottages coupled with the natural beauty of Lakeshore offers a superior lifestyle.
Lakeshore elevates our Tiny Home Cottages with high-end finishes including granite, shiplap, hardwood, and stainless-steel appliances. With new homes starting in the $150s, Lakeshore’s one and two-bedroom homes allow for downsizing into one of Central Florida’s most coveted destinations for active, outdoor living. At Lakeshore you stop paying for square footage and start living life the way you want, focusing on lifestyle and friendships, without the burden and worry of maintenance and upkeep.
The Tiny Home Cottages offer all the extra touches such as screened outdoor living porches and patios, carports, firepits, studio sheds, outdoor pet enclosures and a golfcart charging station. Every home is built to exceed state and local building codes and certified to withstand Florida wind load. Lakeshore’s Hardie siding is immune to termites and other wood-destroying organisms, prevents mold or mildew growth, and takes all kinds of paint. Plastic siding and skirting are strictly prohibited.
Lakeshore is a planned community, rather than the standard center-lot placement, our homes are located along the side of your lot line. This creates more useable outdoor space and promotes an open neighborhood feel. The Lakeshore master plan designates 35% green space for gardens and recreation, and the community is staffed by dedicated, trained professionals and leaders in the hospitality industry. So no, Lakeshore is not a mobile home park.
“At Lakeshore, we are proud to offer location, affordability, amenities and luxury all in one tiny package,” said Simple Life president Mike McCann. “We have everything our buyer wants and nothing they don’t need. It’s a lifestyle and it’s booming in popularity.”
The core of our community is the 3,500 sq. ft. amenity center nestled along Lake Andrew. The Fitness Center includes an aerobics and yoga studio with daily classes and a weight and cardio room. A covered pavilion overlooks the resort-style Pool with an adjacent sun lover’s deck. Residents enjoy a lakeside walking trail and gazebo, bocce ball and pickleball courts, and a well-maintained Paw Park. There is also a curated calendar of social events to entertain all year long.
