The Residences at Turnbull Bay is a small section of single-family homes in the Turnbull Bay Golf Course. The entire community sits on the shore of Turnbull Bay and is surrounded by the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve. If you are looking for a quiet place to live and take your dog for walks, you couldn't be in a much better area!
Of course, very few people want to live so far out of town that they have to give up easy access to necessary amenities just to get a little peace and quiet. One of the great things about living in the Residences at Turnbull Bay is that you get all the quiet you want while, at the same time, having access to everything you need from pet supply stores and grocery stores to a fabulous selection of tasty places to eat. The furthest you might have to drive is the twenty minutes to the beach.
Living in a golfing community means living in an area where the only traffic you are likely to see is during rush hours and the occasional golf cart. The one thing you'll need to watch out for is the occasional low flying golf ball! Keep in mind that, while you might live in the middle of a golf course, your dog is not welcome on the green.
Pedestrian traffic out here is limited, making it easier for you and your dog to use the sidewalks for your daily walks. The cul-de-sac at the end of the neighborhood has a small park and a lake to walk around.
One thing you won't find here is much in the way of large trees along the road through the community. Of course, these trees will mature and provide more shade as they do so, making your walks a little cooler when the sun is at it's fiercest.
You live in the middle of a vast and completely unusable green space, better known as the golf course. However, just outside of the course is the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve, a vast nature preserve covering over 1,600 acres. This preserve is filled with walking trails for you and your dog to explore. You can walk along Spruce Creek to where it flows out into Turnbull Bay and let your dog go swimming in the bay to keep cool!
If you turn left on Pioneer Trail, it will take you west to the South Tomoka Wildlife Management Area. The WMA covers over 30,000 acres and offers a number of different trails to wander along, hundreds of animals and birds to look for, and lakes to seek out. You and your pooch can spend countless hours wandering along the trails and enjoying a relaxing hike in the shade on a bright, sunny summer day.
