Stonecrest is a 55+ community that is just minutes north of Orange Blossom Hills of The Villages. Orange Blossom Hills was the original Mobile Home Park that became what is now The Villages. Both Orange Blossom Hills and Stonecrest are only minutes from the Spanish Springs Town Square. In fact there is Golf Cart access that residents of Stonecrest can use that connects to The Villages Golf Cart paths. Stonecrest offers their own social activities and community amenities and features a bit more upscale properties than those found in Spruce Creek South or Orange Blossom Hills. The main reason that homeowners choose Stonecrest over a property in The Villages is again based on the monthly savings due to most of The Villages neighborhoods that have HOA, Amenity and CDD fees as opposed to the much lower HOA fee found in Stonecrest.
