Retirement-manufactured home community FL-Cypress Greens-Lake Alfred FL

Real Estate Agent


If you are looking for a Retirement-manufactured home community FL-Cypress Greens-Lake Alfred FL, look no further!

We looked at tons of retirement communities before we moved to Florida, and this one was by far our favorite in Polk County FL.


Every one we went to seemed to drop you onto a major highway at the gate. We're country bumpkins and didn't like that at all! Finally we went to this one. AS we were driving, my husband said, "We're going out into the country. This can't be right! Look at those directions again." Just then we saw Evenhouse Road. BINGO!


We passed a school and an orange grove as we went up the hill. We turned into the development (which is leased land-- not deeded) and rode around. We liked what we saw. Only 264 lots and not planned to expand! Many communities of this type here are HUGE-- 1000 or more homes.


On one side it borders the University of Florida citrus groves-- a research center, so it won't be going anywhere. The rest of the property and golf course is bordered by a fence along country roads.

tennis court -- you will see it referred to as "lighted" but it really is not. I know for certain as I ride by it several times every day and my husband plays on it! As you can see from the photos, as of 4/1/10, there are no lights. There is also a shuffleboard court.

My favorite part about living here is that I am no further than a half hour from Lakeland for shopping and dining, or from Walt Disney World for entertainment.

I'd also like to mention that I do not hold a license to sell any of the homes in Cypress Greens. They are considered personal property and not real estate. I'm blogging about this community for several reasons: I live here. I have many friends living here. It's a great place to retire.

There are many homes in here that are for sale by owner as well as being sold by companies who are licensed to sell these homes. There are even some empty lots so you can choose your own model!

If you'd like any information, send me an email and I'll connect you. I prefer not to list their contact information in this blog for privacy concerns.

I will receive NO commission for this, nor can I accept any (it's illegal). I'd just like to help my friends and neighbors! This is a great Retirement-manufactured home community FL-Cypress Greens-Lake Alfred FL. Come see what there is to offer!

As always, contact me if you are interested in buying or selling real estate or would like to introduce me to friends and family with need of my help!

Cool, I got here first. I'm always surprised when I'm taking buyers around and we get into the country and the first thing they ask is "How far is this from Disney?" Let's move on to something closer to the attractions. I personally love being a little ways away from the attractions but to each his (or her) own.
