When originally designed the SunRidge community was to be the first to have its own chairlift! If you look at the original site plan you will notice the odd shaped parcel between condo buildings H and P. This is where the chair was going to be built. Take a look at the Aerial View from Bing and you can see how the owners in building I and O benefit from the additional back yard green space!
SunRidge has remained one of the most desirable communities in the Villages. The majority of the condos sit on the Village Trail. It also boasts one of the two community clubs. Offering a heated summer pool, hot tub, 4 tennis courts, a tot lot, basketball court and community room within easy walking distance of any owner.
This community offers town homes and condominiums. There are 15 groups of town homes with 4 properties in each group. That adds up to 60 town homes that are all referred to as the North Star floor plans. They range in size from the smallest (North St Star #1) at approximately 1,450 square feet to the largest (North Star #3) at approximately 1,813 square feet.
What makes these designs popular is the first floor master bedroom and garage!! The biggest complaint was that they were not slope side. So you have to walk across the street!
There are 11 condo buildings with each one housing 12 units, that equals 132 owners. You’ll find three levels with each level offering 4 units. The lower level floor plan is called the Gemini, the middle the Libra and the upper the Aries.
The Gemini offers two end and two interior units. There are steps down to the main level. This design has always been appreciated for its back deck and access to walk or ski out. It offers two bedrooms and two baths.
In the middle is the Libra and it also offers two end and interior units. These are the three bedrooms, three baths condos. You always walk up to the main level but then have access to two of the three bedrooms. Upstairs you’ll find the third bedroom, bath and a loft. The majority of the lofts are small but there are a few that were extended. In this community there were never any three bedroom properties that you could ski right out onto the slopes.
On the third level you’ll find the Aries on the end and the Aries Loft in the middle. The Aries floor plan began as a one bedroom, one bath. Finding more space upstairs the two interior designs ended up with a second bedroom in the loft and another bath.
Because this community is so popular the resale prices historically tend to run higher. They all have fireplaces, gas heat, and central air. They were built between 1987 and 1992. All of the properties belong to the Villages Master Association and the condos also belong to the SunRidge Condominium Association.
