Questions About Our Simple Life Homes

Fencing on the rear portion of residential lots may be allowed pending the review and approval by the Simple Life Architectural Review Committee. Submitting an ARC form is free, and you will be asked to supply a sketched plan of the proposed fence location for review. The design of fences (material, height, aesthetic) shall be compatible with the architecture of the home and should blend with the surrounding neighborhood.

Our quality built Lee Woods Construction Homes are designed and built to Florida code. Each part of the state of Florida has a region, and therefore a different Hurricane code; for example they are most stringent on the coast as you would expect. Here in Florida’s central region, our homes meet all of the Hurricane code requirements.

Yes. There are no restrictions limiting the amount of time you can spend in your home.

In North Carolina, there is a 12-Month Warranty and Simple Life will pursue any claims on your behalf if needed. Additionally, we provide an optional extended 5-year service agreement.


In Florida, A 12 month warranty begins on day of closing and is covered by a Company called “2-10”. They have been in business for over 40 years and already warranty over 6 million homes. They are your go-to contact and they work with the Builder to arrange covered repairs. If the Builder goes out of business, or after the first 12 months is over, and the extended coverage begins, the 2-10 company is your support as they guarantee the warranty on all covered items; we have a handout that will bring added clarity to you so ask our agents for a copy.

We offer a detached garage option on select homesites.

At Lakeshore, contact your Director of Sales when you are ready! In North Carolina, contact your Sales Agent to proceed.

We offer Class B RV parking on select homesites. There is also a gated and monitored property that offers both long-term and month-to-month space rentals located  1/2 mile from Lakeshore.

No. We are not age-restricted and welcome everyone. However, our 1 – 2-bedroom homes are limited in size and have a max capacity of 2 persons per bedroom.

Due to the Fair Housing Act, we are not able to track the ages of all our residents. So far, our resident’s range in age from approximately early 20s to mid 80s. Anyone who meets the requirements of the Resident Application form is welcome to enjoy the Simple Life. It’s wonderful to see all different age groups living in harmony!

We love pets! We include dog parks in our communities and poop stations at every intersection. We require that each pet has a full vaccination record, rabies shots, and picture submitted with the pet approval form. Pets are typically approved unless the breed is on the uninsurable list or exceeds the 70 lb. weight limit. Each of our properties has a specific rule on the number of pets allowed, based on their size – we are after all a cottage community!

Simple Life does not rent new homes. Our homes are for sale only. Some of our owners do rent their homes when they are not owner occupied. This is done privately through the owner. Each Rental Resident must fill out our Resident application when renting longer than one month, which is the minimum stay required in our community

Your monthly lease amount can only be increased by 3% or CPI (consumer price index) on the anniversary of the lease each year. A longer-term lease gives you greater financial control of your future.
