Driftwood 55+ Subdivision - A Tranquil Place to Live in Zephyrhills, Florida

Driftwood Sign 
Welcome to Driftwood Subdivision located in Zephyrhills, Florida. Just 1/2 hour northeast of the city of Tampa. Driftwood is on the State of Florida's registered 55+ subdivisions (as of April 2011). This can be confirmed by clicking on the following link: Pasco County 55+ Subdivisions 

Its location is very central and within a half-mile radius you have a 3 supermarkets, 3 pharmacies, numerous doctors' offices, a theater, the Florida Medical Clinic, our local hospital, a fire station, the city police office, lots of restaurants, Walmart, Lowes, and parks. Yet Driftwood's grounds make it seem as if all of the hustle and bustle are faraway. Its streets are private, and that adds to the tranquility here.

Driftwood has two main sections. The first is the CONDO area. These are not multi-story condominiums like some people imagine. They are more like single-story row homes. In the pictures below, the tan colored residences are the condo section. They all have carports in front of them so you can park in the shade. The condo fees pay for all outside maintenance (exterior painting & roofing), building insurance, lawncare, water, sewer, trash pick-up, and use of the clubhouse, pool, and shuffleboard courts. Talk about carefree living! Sorry, no pets allowed in the condo section.

The other section is commonly referred to as the BLUE SECTION. Here you will find both villa homes with carports that look similar to the condo buildings, and also single-family houses with one or two-car garages. In the pictures below you can easily identify homes in this section by their blue color. Here you CAN have a small dog or cat. In this area, the homeowner association fees cover exterior maintenance (roofing & exterior paint), lawncare, water, sewer, trash pick-up, and use of the pool, clubhouse, and shuffleboard courts. One difference here is that each owner in the Blue Section pays for his/her own building insurance.

At any one time there are several residences available for purchase in Driftwood.
