The Homeowner's Association has also applied for a grant from the City of Clearwater to assist in current improvements for the neighborhod 

The Grovewood home owners association is active and is currently working on updating the entry way and adding ivy to the wall that borders this fine neighborhood of homes. The City of Clearwater is analyzing a plan to add reclaimed water for these homes - they are still working on the feasibilitiy  

Grovewood home owners also have 2 large neighborhood picnics each year. One in April with a spring theme and one in October with a Fall Harvest theme. All the home owners pitch in and contribute to a potluck and then the association pays for main course / meat and then crafts and games for kids and families. They also host 2 community wide garage sales each year.

Wow...NO DOOR KNOCKING?!?!  We don't even have THOSE rules yet...

Susie: They are strict here - always good to know!

Susie: Their lastest Grovewood Home Owners newsletter was just published and it talks about the face that they want to ammend their Bylaws to allow a renter or designate of the homeowner be on the Grovewood Homeowners Board - I wonder what unintended consequences that could have?

Cyndee; Not sure how I missed this but what a great tribute to this neighborhood you certainly know your stuff

Posted by Thesa Chambers, Principal Broker - Licensed in Oregon (Fred Real Estate Group) over 11 years ago

Cyndee,

Is Grovewood a gated community?  Strict homeowners' associations are a perfect fit for some people but some folks don't like them.  A good real estate professional like you and your husband can help prospective clients decide which neighborhoods are a good fit - buying a home in a neighborhood that doesn't fit is a mistake you don't want to make when buying a home.

Cyndee, How wonderful it would be to live in Grovewood with its close community!  Rita is right! It would appeal to some and not appeal to others, but I think overall it would be awesome!
Posted by Chris Tesch, College Station, Texas Real Estate (RE/MAX Bryan-College Station) over 11 years ago
Thesa - not sure - but thanks for taking time to allow me to share more about Grovewood with you. It has even been awarded Neighborhood of the Quarter by the City of Clearwater recently.

Rita - no it's not gated - many of our older communities are not gated but it only has on entrance and exit so it has quiet streets - great for kids to bike and walking the dog. You are right about Home Owners Associations and the guidelines that come with it - it's not for everyone. No commercial vehicles are allowed and no boats or jet skis can be parked at your home.

We have lots of great neighborhoods that are NOT deed restricted which are great options for people that want more flexibility.

Chris - right across the street is an area known as "University Park" and it isn't deed restricted but has similar size homes and great convenient location so there are options for everyone. We love helping families find the perfect neighborhood that fits their lifestyle.

Cyndee, we too have quite a few neighborhoods in Pasadena that will not allow solicitation.  Looks like a great community!
Posted by Irina Netchaev, Pasadena CA Real Estate (Pasadena Views Real Estate Team, Inc.) over 11 years ago
Cyndee Grovewood sounds like a great neighborhood with lots of involved neighbors. The neighborhood picnics sound like a good way to stay in touch with your neighbors.
Posted by Ashley Drake Gephart (Drake Intel Group) over 11 years ago
It sounds like Grovewood homeowners are all looking out for the best interest of each other and their community.  It would be nice to live in a community like this one in Clearwater.  I am so glad you have provided this information Cyndee.  I have talked with some friends who are looking in this area and now I can tell them more about Grovewood and the Clearwater Real Estate Expert to contact.

Cyndee - does this include like GIRLSCOUT COOKIES??
Posted by Susie Roscoe, Real Estate Specialist | Brandon, FL (Signature Realty Associates) over 11 years ago
One more quick question...does this mean if you have neighborhood kids selling fundraisers for schools the people would have a problem?  Are you just referring to outside solicitations? 
Posted by Susie Roscoe, Real Estate Specialist | Brandon, FL (Signature Realty Associates) over 11 years ago

I keep a sign up in the window next to our front door that says, in very flowery script:

WE ALREADY HAVE:

  • Newspapers
  • Magazines
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Candy
  • Religion

So please, no Solicitors! 

I'm all for it. Even the kids; they flat out should not be knocking on doors of people they don't know. There's some freaks out there. Besides; it saves me all that money, 'cuz, I mean, really, who can say no to girl scout cookies? Especially the lemon creams... mmmmmm

Grovewood seems a nice place to live.  I wish we had a method to keep solicitors away.  Good post.
Posted by Darrel Quebedeaux (Evergreen Realty & Associates Inc.) over 11 years ago
Cyndee, great information for Clearwater!  It sounds like the association stays very involved and is trying to do what they feel is best for the community.

Hi Cyndee, Grovewood sounds like a great community in Clearwater Beach FL.  I would love it if our neighborhood did picnics.  Sounds like fun!
