Living The Good Life At Fountainhead

Imagine a carefree lifestyle in an exclusive active adult living community and think of your wish-list of amenities. Right off the top, you’d probably want to not worry about yard maintenance and housekeeping. Not having to deal with those pesky monthly utilities bills would be a relief too, wouldn’t it?

And wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy a daily chef-prepared meal in an elegant dining room? And here’s the best part—no bill to pay and no dishes to wash afterwards.

Maybe you’d like to take a dip in a pool that you didn’t have to maintain. Or practice your golf putting and driving in your own backyard.

How about treating yourself to a day at a full-service spa?

Nice wish list, isn’t it?

Stop wishing and start thinking FountainHead.

“We wanted to offer something truly unique to the Ocala area,” says Arthur Radice, president of FountainHead. “We feel like there comes a time in your life when you feel like you’ve paid your dues and you’ve earned as carefree a lifestyle as possible. For most people that means not dealing with the issues of home ownership maintenance responsibilities and costs. Instead of ownership, what we offer are one-year leases that include all amenities. This frees up your time and your capital, allowing you to invest both in more productive ways.”

While the FountainHead concept is new to Ocala, Radice, over the past 20 years, has developed similar communities in places such as West Palm Beach, Jacksonville, Denver, Colorado, and Charlotte, North Carolina. Radice also developed Quiet Oaks in Ocala, an assisted living community adjacent to FountainHead.

Located in the vibrant southwest area of Ocala, FountainHead is an active adult living community that can fulfill all of your wishes. This unique five-acre campus currently features 13 villas with construction on a four-story apartment complex slated to be underway in February 2008. The villas, which are available now, are comprised of two-bedroom, two-bath, one-car garage homes totaling a tidy 1,511 total square feet. The apartments, 77 units all totaled, will range from studios to one-bedroom to two-bedrooms.

The villas and the apartments come with full amenities including all paid utilities except personal phone, individual-controlled central air and heat, fully-appointed kitchens with all appliances, window treatments, Berber carpeting, outside patios, and balconies. Wait, it gets better. Residents also receive complete interior and exterior maintenance, weekly housekeeping and linen service, requested wellness checks, as well as monthly beauty and barber services.

Remember that day at the spa? FountainHead residents receive an exclusive charter package to The Ranch, Ocala’s premier full-service spa and fitness facility. The Ranch is conveniently located only a short distance from FountainHead.

All of this and more is available at FountainHead without the hassles of home ownership but with the benefits of a vital community.

“We feel like it’s very important to be among your peers,” says Radice. “What often happens in a neighborhood is that it changes over time and sometimes people begin to feel isolated. This isn’t a healthy way to live. Our philosophy at FountainHead is that we want people to feel comfortable and vital in a great community. The secret to quality of life is a great social network that allows you to be mentally and physically active.”

And when do you know if you’re ready for the FountainHead lifestyle?

“In my experience, it’s when the woman of the house is tired of cooking and cleaning,” says Radice with a chuckle. “Generally what happens is that when a couple retires, the husband starts spending his time playing golf and fishing with his buddies. The wife just keeps on cooking and cleaning. Finally, she realizes that she’s missing out on something in this deal and decides things are going to change. And that’s when it’s time to come to FountainHead.”
