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

Last week, we traveled to Florida…

… “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..

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



The front porches to the office are beautiful and enormous…





Love the way they embellished a simple trellis.


So many wonderful places to sit and visit…


Now let’s go inside…


The Entry Foyer…



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..

… sit and meet with prospective buyers.



The ceiling treatments in each room are stunning.





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.




And now to “The Parlor”



You can enjoy seeing many beautiful antiques throughout the “sales office”…



The “Hunt Room”


What’s a “Hunt Room” without the “prized deer”



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 hard to see…


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

…..where people are always happy…



And where my hubby can play competitive softball 365 days a year…..someday!!!


And where there are beautiful sun rises…A view from the balcony of the hotel where we were staying…




I hope you enjoyed the “very mini” tour of Florida’s Friendliest Hometown….

…..where you can get anywhere with a golf cart..

……….even lots of major department stores, grocery stores, restaurants, and the list goes on…

There is still time to enter my book giveaway of Marian Parsons’ aka, “Miss Mustard Seed” book, Inspired You.

Giveaway ends at midnight October 31st, 2012.

    Shirley, my in-laws just built a house there! Your ‘tour’ was such a great way for us to see their surroundings-thanks!

  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.
