From pristine beaches and historic downtowns to lower taxes and great medical care, it’s no secret that living in Florida is in high demand. What might come as a surprise, however, is that Florida has the second-highest population of residents over 50, second only to California. As homeowners embark upon their retirement years, the desire for a low-maintenance lifestyle and resort-style amenities has skyrocketed. Located just north of Jacksonville, Tributary is a new master-planned community experiencing tremendous interest for its new 55+ neighborhood by Lennar, Lakeview. See why so many empty nesters are making the move to this north Florida community.

Florida’s Favorable Tax Climate

As one of only seven states nationwide without a state income tax, Florida is known as an extremely tax-friendly state. Social Security income, pension income, and income from an IRA or 401(k) are not subject to state tax, saving retirees thousands of dollars annually. Florida also does not impose any estate or inheritance taxes, protecting residents and their heirs from state taxes on their descendant’s estate.

Fitness, Fun, and Friends

For many homebuyers choosing to move into 55+ communities, one of the biggest draws is the endless amenities focused on both physical health and building connections. From swimming pools and walking trails to fitness centers and pickleball, active adults can find a variety of activities that are easy and fun to do. These activities not only keep residents fit and having fun, but also build a sense of community and camaraderie between neighbors. At Lakeview, active-adult residents and their guests will enjoy an 8,000-square-foot amenity center with a fitness center, a resort-style pool with cabanas, a pavilion, tennis courts, pickleball courts, and a bocce ball lawn. A full-time lifestyle director will be on-hand to not only keep residents active and engaged but also create a welcoming and family-like setting that is second to none.

Homeowners within Lakeview will also enjoy the community-wide Lookout Amenity Center, a stylish social hub for residents of all ages. A resort-style pool, state-of-the-art Fitness Center, two pickleball courts, a children’s playground, a dog park, and a recreational play field offer plentiful opportunities to get outside and be actively engaged with the natural beauty that surrounds them. Even more exciting amenities are being planned for the future, including a community-wide trail system, the neighboring Tributary Regional Park, and a kayak and canoe launch.

Quality Homes for Maintenance-Free Living

Today’s new construction homes also offer more benefits than ever before, making them an ideal choice for retirees. New homes are designed with today’s most sought-after features and smart home technologies, offering the privacy and independence of ownership without all the work and upkeep. Future residents at Tributary’s Lakeview 55+ community will work with one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, Lennar, to build the home of their dreams. 10 open-concept floorplans range from 1,500 to more than 3,000 square feet of living space, with hundreds of personalization options available. Each home will also come with Lennar’s industry exclusive Everything’s Included® program, where the builder’s most popular options and upgrades are built into the base price of the home.

The Best of North Florida at Your Doorstep

Residents at Lakeview 55+ are also near all the best attractions in North Florida. Veterans appreciate Nassau County’s proximity to numerous military bases, including Kings Bay, Florida Air National Guard, Naval Station Mayport, Naval Air Station Jacksonville, and more. Additionally, a rapidly expanding medical industry, with four new healthcare innovators and numerous VA clinics, ensures innovative healthcare services are never too far away. For entertainment the whole family will enjoy, the historic city of Fernandina and the vibrant Jacksonville area provide endless dining, shopping, sporting events, museums, and more.
