Husband and I are retirees in late 60's. Would like to move to an area near our daughter & her family...she lives in the Countryside area of Clearwater. She works at a medical building somewhere in Trinity, and her husband works in Clearwater on Gulf to Bay Blvd. Where would be a good location for us so that we won't be too far from their home and my daughter's workplace in Trinity so that we could help with babysitting? We like the Eastlake Rd. area (or is it called Mitchell Rd. in the Trinity area?), but are there any new homes being built there? I can find only used homes in Heritage Springs and other Trinity neighborhoods. What about The Sabals Townhomes? We don't need an age restricted area as such; age diversity in a neighborhood is fine with us as we enjoy young families and children. We like gated, but it's not absolutely necessary. We do want an upscale area, and I need conveniences like good medical facilities, malls, restaurants. My parents lived in Beacon Woods (Bayonet Point/New Port Richey) for 30 years, but it was a very different neighborhood back in 1979, full of educated retirees with money. Not so today. So much negative news coming out of West Pasco; I'm afraid to look anyplace off Little Rd. north of Mitchell Plaza. What about developments on SR54? Any high end neighborhoods with one-floor homes or upscale townhomes?

Eastlake is a very good area, but there's no new homes being built there.
Trinity has some new homes being built now, and it is nice too.
Wish you luck!

Longleaf seems like it would fit what you are looking for. I wouldn't venture much further north of Trouble Creek or West of Little.

What kind of price are you talking about by saying upscale? Upscale in north Pinellas will get quite pricey.
