The Legacy of Leesburg subdivision in Lake County, Florida, is comprised of 999 home sites. Initially developed by Rogers Brothers Land Company in 1999, development was then transferred to Pringle Development. Following the financial collapse of Pringle Development, unsold lots were transferred to Florida Leisure Communities for completion. There are still several private lots for sale; you can use your own builder for those lots but home designs must comply with architectural standards of Legacy of Leesburg.
The community center is comprised of three buildings, a heated pool, two tennis courts, pickle ball courts, bocce courts, shuffleboard courts, and horseshoes. There is also a separate softball field.
There is no golf course; instead, there are miles of walking trails around several of the conservation and open space areas. There are seven separate wetland conservation areas which will remain in their natural state; together, this is more than 125 acres of natural areas for enjoyment of the residents. The largest conservation easement area is 58 acres; the next largest area is about 32 acres. There are also more acres of open space which are not part of the conservation space. Trails are maintained throughout the community, including on the borders of several of the conservation easement areas. Benches for relaxation are provided along some of the trails. You can download a Trail-Guide to learn more about them.
