Simple Life Officially Launches Its Newest Tiny Home Community In Central Florida

With several thoughtful and gorgeous floorplans that include customizable options and high-end finishes, homebuyers enjoy between 499 – 650 square feet of living space. These tiny homes pack a powerful punch in each square foot optimizing use of space and livability. Despite the fact that the cottages are considerably smaller than the average home, current Simple Life homeowners enjoy full-sized kitchen appliances, stackable washer and dryers, one and two bedroom options, flex space, and in some models, an additional 160 square foot loft ideal for visiting grandchildren or extra storage.

“So much of the Central Florida homebuyer market is comprised of empty nesters, retirees and even people who vacation in the area during winter months,” said McCann, “Our Wildwood community will provide buyers of all ages, but certainly these folks, an opportunity to live in a community that focuses on lifestyle while having the best of everything close by. We will have a Community Manager that can keep our residents’ calendars full with social activities. It seems to happen organically in our communities, where residents become like family.”

Simple Life communities partner with highly accredited and experienced home builders. While the tiny homes are wheeled into the development, don’t mistake this community with a traditional mobile home park. These upscale tiny homes are skirted and attached to permanent foundations. McCann and his team continue to work closely with city officials who are enthusiastic about this unique community. “I believe this is a first for the state of Florida,” said Ryan Howser, Planner for the City of Wildwood, “There are some smaller communities that try to operate under the tiny house blanket, but they’re really just temporary trailers or RV parks. This is the first master-planned permanent community of this nature.”

“We give hundreds of tours a month in our Simple Life communities,” shared Jacque Coots, Sales Manager for Simple Life’s communities in the mountains of North Carolina, “and it seems every single time people share their shock and amazement once they tour a community and step inside a tiny home. It sounds cliché but the shock value of what you can get and how you can live in a Simple Life community gets them every time.”

McCann and his team held several meetings with members of the Lake Association (Lake Andrew) helping the community understand the quality and aesthetics of Simple Life in Wildwood. “They embraced our vision and give us full support knowing we are community partners,” said McCann. Simple Life will begin site work in June with anticipation of presales to begin in July. As visionaries and a company that is committed to providing homebuyers with a place they are proud to call home, Simple Life’s team is enthusiastic about moving into the Ocala area and developing a community that will enhance the current landscape.

About Simple Life: Simple Life is excited to be paving the way for people wanting to live in an award-winning tiny home community. Tiny homes in Simple Life communities start in the low $100s and include use of community amenities that are specific to each development but include a pool, fitness center, internet café, yoga room, dog park, and outdoor gathering spaces.

    Will there be an area for tiny houses on wheels, commonly called towables, like there is in NC?

    • Simple Life on February 1, 2019 at 7:06 pm

      Hi Lynn,

      At this time our Ocala community is not slated to have a tiny towable area.

    I own a tiny home at Simple Life in Flat Rock and have been very pleased with the community. I also have a place in Pensacola but have been considering downsizing and moving farther south. I plan to be heading down to S. FL in March. Please provide an address and I will swing thru to check out your proposed community. Thank you.

      Hi Jeanne,

      We’re glad you love your Flat Rock tiny home! We will just be beginning to break ground in March, but we would love to welcome you back later in the summer when the grounds are available to walk.

    That’s excellent I’m glad you’re sitting with Presidence. now if they would go one step further and allow people to have their tiny homes stay on wheels then we are really making progress. Are park we are in currently in is one of those rare year-round parks we’re all the residents pay for a space yearly. Also inquiring if you need management people 2 be sight assisting with the residents the grounds, office and all the other activities. My partner and I are looking for a permanent position in a community such as this. Let me know if there is any opportunity at this one that you will be breaking ground on in March?

      So glad to hear! We are in the process of finalizing details of the new community, but we’d be happy to provide more information as it becomes available. Please email info@simple-life.com to be added to our database so that we may provide news and updates about the new Florida community!

  6. Joanne Thibault on February 6, 2019 at 9:48 pm

    Are there any garage/storage space? Will love seeing this development. Very interested.

    • Simple Life on February 21, 2019 at 2:43 pm

      The Wildwood, FL community is currently in the early stages of development and details are still being finalized. However, our current communities allow for a 6 x 6, 8 x 8, or 10 x 10 shed on each homesite and we anticipate that Wildwood will offer the same outdoor storage solution.

  7. J on February 7, 2019 at 7:30 pm

    What other areas of FL are you looking to build?

    • Simple Life on February 21, 2019 at 2:42 pm

      Simple Life is exploring Central Florida including Ocala to Leesburg and East to Deland and Daytona areas as well as South West Florida including Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, and Fort Myers areas as potential places for our Florida communities.
