Royal Manor Apartments is a locally owned 55+ community managed by DeSimone Real Estate Services, a locally owned and operated Real Estate Company. Royal Manor is just off of Silver Springs Boulevard (State Road 40), the main east-west thoroughfare through Silver Springs and Ocala and just a short and easy walk from Wild Waters and the world famous Silver Springs attraction.
Emergency services are always available and quick to respond; three excellent local hospitals serve the area, with the University of Florida's Shands Hospital about 30 minutes north of us in Gainesville. The Marion County area has many fine physicians, therapists, medical suppliers and support groups to fit every need.
Royal Manor Apartments offers a selection of one and two bedroom apartments with one or two baths available on street level and second floors. Some two bedroom apartments also have a small patio (first floor) or covered balcony (second floor). Leasing is reasonable and parking is convenient. Some of our residents appreciate that the attraction at Silver Springs offers a reasonably-priced annual pass permitting nearly unlimited access to the park, making it a great place to include in their daily walking regimen. Also within walking distance are a WalMart, several restaurants (including Perkins, Steak n Shake, Burger King, etc.), the Silver Springs post office, shopping center, etc. Lowe's and more restaurants are within a short driving distance. Also just a few minutes east of Royal Manor is the renowned Appleton Museum of Art. Fishing and hunting are also close by when the season allows (we are adjacent to the Ocala National Forest and close to boat ramps). For those who don't drive, convenient bus service is available, covering Silver Springs and the neighboring City of Ocala.
Silver Springs is centrally located in north central Florida's Marion County (home of some the the world's premier thoroughbred horse farms), giving easy access to Orlando, Disney World and Universal Studios to the south, Daytona with it's world famous beaches and NASCAR racing, the cities of Tampa and St. Petersburg to the southwest, and Gainesville and the University of Florida to the north.
