Home is where the heart is and here in Dade City, the heart of Central Florida, sits the small but proud, age qualified community of Southfork. With well constructed homes and manicured lawns on tree lined streets, the residents enjoy the wholesomeness of rural living while still having all the amenities of life within car minutes away. Some of these necessities as well as luxuries are: two excellent local hospitals and two major hospitals within 30 minutes, upscale dining, antiquing, and boutique shopping, seven local golf courses with fees ranging from $10 to $50, Banking, three major universities and colleges, Disney World, Busch Gardens, MGM and Universal Studios, Tampa Bay Performing Arts, and major league sports just to name a few. Amidst the rolling hills, sparkling fish filled lakes, verdant pastures and large forest preserves of natural wildlife, living can be likened to the enjoyment of a good rich burgundy wine in the cool 60 degree winter climate or a sparkling champagne in the 90 degree summer. Of course, these moderate temperatures are what lure most of our northern residents to Southfork, but it is the quality of living which retains them. Southfork is proud of its friendly good-neighbor policy. We have a modest but impressive clubhouse and extensive recreation facilities, including card room/game room, library with computers and internet access, shuffleboard, bocce, picnic pavilion, horseshoes and a heated swimming pool with cabana and bathhouse. A low monthly lot fee includes lawn mowing/trimming year round, water and sewer, street lighting, garbage removal twice weekly and all amenities. We have happy hearts and a satisfied community!!
