What's the Heritage Isle Neighborhood Like? 

The homes you can expect to find in the Heritage Isle community vary greatly with preference.   A 55+ community like Heritage Isle does not necessarily mean a physical downsizing.

Depending on whether a single family detached unit, half duplex, villa or condo is what you seek.  The single family homes are available in smaller styles (typical 3 bedroom 2 bath 2 car garage with 1,600-1,800 sq ft under air) as well as the larger homes with three car garages (2,500 to 3,500 sq ft).

Villa typically 2/2 one car garage
There are some half duplex homes in Heritage Isle as well although these are less common.  More common are the villa style homes (also called patio homes).  These homes typical halve one or even two shared walls with other units and have a single car garage.  Typically these villa homes are in the 1,200 to 1,500 sq ft range and have two bedrooms, two baths and a "flex" room.

Most of the homes built in Heritage Isle were constructed by the developer Lennar Homes.  Through the years there have been other builders who are no longer build in Heritage Isle.

Heritage Isle offers attractively priced newer homes in a gated community.  Many of these Lennar homes often remind me of the Model T Ford.   No, not that they are old or anything like that, but more of the builder, Henry Ford who wrote in autobiography, My Life and Work, 1922  "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black."

Within the Heritage Isle community buyers will find many similarities in the homes built by Lennar. The cabinets, paint, carpet, and appliances in many are the same.  It should be expected as using the same materials/supplier results in an economy of scale that allows Lennar to offer homes at very attractive prices.

Still, depending on the time built (from around 2005 until current construction) the actual components used and models have changed a bit.
