What does Resort Style Living Mean?

Ocala Preserve is what is considered resort style living. This means your everyday life is similar to that of a resort stay. The Salted Brick restaurant is located on site, so imagine sipping a cocktail by the pool, pick up your phone and order some food from the restaurant and a server will bring it out to you pool side. Wondering what to do with your day? Just walk over to the “things to do” board similar to what’s found on a cruise ship and see all the activities and happenings for the day. Maybe you want to attend a cooking class? Maybe a wine tasting? Maybe you want a spa day? All of these are just some of the many options available to you in this spectacular community at Ocala Preserve!

Why Is Ocala Preserve No Longer Trilogy?

TRILOGY UPDATE! The Trilogy community, including all buildings, vacant land, clubhouses, and golf course, has been sold to a company called Forestar and closed at the end of November 2020. The community is no longer a Trilogy branded community and instead is just “Ocala Preserve”. All of the Trilogy brandings have been removed as it belongs to Shea Homes.

What does that mean going forward? Shea homes is still a builder in the community, however, they have to purchase lots from Forestar in order to be able to continue building as they are now a “guest builder”. It sounds like 80 or so lots have been assigned to Shea Homes with them taking possession of 10 at a time on takedown. DR Horton will be one of the other guest builders and will be constructing their Freedom Homes in the community.

Currently, DR Horton has constructed models in the model home park and started construction of homes intermingled with the Shea homes. Once those are built out (as part of their phase 1 of construction) they’ll begin construction in phase 2 which is also being built with the HUD age restrictions meaning families can purchase in this phase. Phase 2 construction is believed to be beginning in the summer of 2022.

Is Ocala Preserve a 55+ community?

Ocala Preserve always had a section that was not tied to the HUD age restrictions, however, the community was always billed out as an adult living 55+ community; with the advent of the sale and DR Horton’s plans to not include the HUD restriction on future development, I would no longer consider the community as a whole 55+. DR Horton does not have any plans at this time to build their 2 story homes.
