Default Lexington

Go to the county clerk's site, Manatee County Clerk of Circuit Court and Comptroller (http://www.clerkofcourts.com - broken link) and search under the Book-Page option. Enter Book 1877 and Page 1127. That is the document with the main restrictions for Lexington, so you can read them yourself and decide whether or not they meet your needs.

I have a friend that bought in Lexington from Bruce Williams Homes and for the most part, she was pretty happy. Until the kitchen cabinets started falling off the wall. I know she had a tough time getting something done, but I believe it has all been resolved now.

I don't know if the lots are large enough for you to add an in-law suite. I know some lots might be, but you'd have to check on the setbacks, etc. Foxbrook, maybe some of Ancient Oaks would have larger lots that you might be able to add on. PM me if you need a lead on one.

There is a new middle school that just opened this year and a pretty new elementary school. I recently heard they are planning a new high school up by Parrish, but don't know any details.

Hope this helps a little in your search!

Paula

I used to work for Manatee county Public Schools and my husband still does. Williams is a very good school so is Buffalo Creek MS. Palmetto would be the only concern for the HS and you're outta luck, it's the only one out there. There are other nice areas other Lexington. I found their fees to be a bit high. Try Ancient Oaks on Eerie, or Chelsea Oaks or Lakeside Preserve, River plantation on Old Tampa. Be careful though some of the communities out there have very high fees and CDD fees as well..
