The most beautiful sales office you will ever see…{The Villages}

Last week, we traveled to Florida…

…..to “Florida’s Friendliest Hometown, the Villages”.

My hubby had a tournament there.

I used to live about 30 minutes north of The Villages…so I know how wonderful that place is!

I could live in their sales office…it is the most awesome and beautiful sales offices you will ever see!

So the nice people of the Villages let me click away…so that I can share these beautiful rooms with you!

The houses in the Square are fashioned after coastal towns such as Appalachacola, Florida…

….a team of designers visited some coastal towns to get a feel for their next project.

And this town square of Sumter Landing depicts a coastal town feel.

You will see thousands of custom golf carts such as this one throughout the Villages..

…..golf carts are the main mode of transportation throughout this beautiful place.

The Library…

This is my favorite room…

…..which has my favorite poem from Ralph Waldo Emerson stenciled on the walls.

Please keep in mind..that these rooms are rooms that salespeople meet prospective buyers.

I was there early that morning…there were just a few people sitting at tables in the rooms..

You can see in the next pic a table with 4 chairs…one of many sets throughout the rooms..

…..to sit and meet with prospective buyers.

My son wrote Emerson’s words in a card…for “dad”…saying that this poem says it all…

…..that he felt it represented him exactly. My hubby treasures that card to this day.

The other side of the room is beautiful, but there were people there meeting with a salesperson…

And now to the “Music Room”

There is a grand piano in the corner..rooms are dimly lit..so hard to see…

DSC_5044

It is a beautiful friendly place…a city of its own…where there is not a frown in sight…

…..where people are always happy…

  25. Had I known about this place when Ramon tried to make me move to Florida a couple of years ago, I would have flown down there so fast…and without an airplane, if necessary!!!! My arms would be tired, but I sure would be happy! :-) Gosh, this is gorgeous! This is the way people are meant to live! The sales associates must absolutely LOVE their jobs!!!!!!!!

  26. My friend’s parents live there, and she loves it. Every time she goes down to visit she wants to stay. You photos are just gorgeous…makes me want to head South again…it is sooo cold here in KY.
