Where to Find Affordable Retirement Homes Near Orlando, FL

Golf carts driving down brick-lined street in a commercial district with a park on one sideAre you looking through the options in retirement homes near Orlando because you want to live in the most exciting city in Florida? It’s true that relocating to the Sunshine State’s best-known playground will provide you with a never-ending list of things to see and do, now that you’re planning to retire. However, it’s also true that moving to Orlando will likely mean a lifestyle that includes traffic congestion at almost every hour of the day. What’s more, if you’re like many older adults heading into retirement, you may be concerned that your life savings won’t stretch far enough to cover the purchase of a home in one of Orlando’s pricy resort-style retirement communities.

Fortunately, Hyde Park in nearby Winter Garden offers a terrific alternative. Our gated 55+ community of high-quality manufactured homes is located just west of Orlando, providing a quiet haven that’s close to but not in a major metro area. Additionally, our retirement homes offer safe, comfortable living with daily access to resort-style amenities that include:

  • A community clubhouse with spaces for club meetings and indoor games
  • A large banquet hall with a performance stage and dance floor
  • A heated swimming pool and hot tub
  • A well-equipped fitness center
  • Shuffleboard courts

Although our amenities can help you feel like you’re on vacation year-round, they also play a much bigger role by making it easy to socialize with your neighbors, plan group outings, and develop the kind of friendships that mean so much during your retirement years.

However, in a similarly equipped community of site-built homes, you’d likely pay a fortune to buy your dwelling, then shell out more money for homeowners association or membership fees to access the amenities. At Hyde Park, however, you can purchase one of our well-maintained manufactured homes and then pay a low monthly home site lease fee for services that include use of the clubhouse facilities, lawn mowing, and professional community management.

Things to Do With the Money You Save

In addition to offering low-cost retirement homes for sale, Hyde Park’s convenient location may also help you save money on gas without requiring you to scale back on your leisure activities. Why? Because our residents enjoy traveling by golf cart to a nearby commercial district with a town-square ambiance. There’s a golf cart path that leads straight from our community to this bustling center of trendy shops and restaurants that often offers free live entertainment. Moreover, if you’re a nature lover, you can also take the golf cart path to beautiful Lake Apopka, where you can have a picnic or hike along one of the nature trails.

Close to Everything You Need for a Comfortable Retirement

No matter which retirement homes you’re evaluating as the place to spend your next chapter, you’ll want to consider criteria like proximity to health care, shopping, and transportation. When you choose to retire at Hyde Park, you’ll find convenient shopping, medical facilities, and places of worship in the surrounding community right outside our gates. What’s more, our terrific location right in the heart of Central Florida means you’ll be a short drive from:

  • First-class hospitals
  • An international airport
  • An Amtrak train station
  • One of the nation’s most sophisticated highway networks
  • Public colleges, some of which offer free classes for seniors

Moreover, all the theme parks, professional sports venues, performing arts centers, and outlet malls that have made Orlando famous the world over are only a few minutes’ drive from Hyde Park. And, when you’re up for a day trip, you’ll be able to reach one of Central Florida’s renowned beaches in only an hour or so by car.
