One might expect that the deed restrictions would be significant. Perhaps to the point that it might not feel like you were really the owner? Where are the prices found?

The flyer that I got in the mail said "starting at 1.5 million". Not sure if it says anything on the website.

My DH and I tried to go in just to look once and we couldn't even get past security (understandable). But I would love to just take a peek into one of those houses. Living there, not so much. It's probably a lot of work to keep up with and I'm sure the HOA fees would be outrageous! But the homes are lovely.

If you can afford to buy in you can afford HOA. But everything is included along with free shuttles to park gates, free entrance plus 3 per household resident. Maintenance willbe taken care of by disney. Not bad

I almost signed on a home in Golden Oak a few months ago. The HOA is not horrible, if I recall it was only $1,400 a year for Kimball Trace, and up to $2,000 for the more executive homes. The $1.5M price tag would get you a "basic" home at around 3,000 SF with a zero lot line, if you want something nicer, the $1.5M would cover only the cost of the lot. I had a friend that was able to purchase and build for around $600,000, but those days have passed and were on to the $1.9-$2.5 range as the development process picks up speed. They are nice, but I wouldn't spend $1.5 on it. Go literally another 1/2 mile behind MK and get the same thing for around $550-$600K.

GOLDEN OAKS IS MY LIFE!!!!!!!! A few months ago, I was on the website daily!!!! I fell in love with the $3.5 million Tuscan Sun house(there was a virtual tour of it... It is my dream home). I am so happy that a thread has come up for this!!!!!!!!!!!! So I did a tour of Golden Oaks back in April... I already knew everything that our guide was telling us because of being on the website so frequently!!! I got to tour "my" house, but no one else in my family was too impressed with it They like the Kimball Trace houses(which are a lot less moneywise). The one thing that bothered me with the Tuscan Sun house was that the shower in the guest bedroom was in the middle of the room surrounded by glass walls... It was like you were display or something). But this being said, all of you are NOT allowed to buy my Tuscan Sun house!!! I need to win the lottery!!!
I also received all of the floor plans from my guide and I literally spent like 18 hours streaming through them all!!! I have spent way too much time obsessing over Golden Oaks!!! I am going to live there one day, I just have to have some luck

Tell me more about Golden Oak...

DH and I are going down in December to tour Golden Oak. We are going to make an appt prior to our arrival but I am curious...what kind of vibe is it? Can you get a feel for what it is like or is it in the very beginning stages of being built? Would you be able to be relaxed and quiet there or will you feel the effects of WDW traffic and noise? Do you feel it is worth the extra $$ to be within the gates of Golden Oak vs. going 1/2 mile down the road and getting something for 550-660K, as one poster commented? Thanks so much for all of your opinions!

So I went to Golden Oak in April and most things were still being built(I think the clubhouse is now open... It wasnt done when I went). I think the area is very relaxed and quiet(you can't come in at all without some kind of pass or something) but they are building the Four Seasons resort like down the road from the town, but you have to cut through the town to get to the resort which bothers me a lot... Please post all about your tour when you get back!!! I can't wait to learn more about my home!!!!

On the real estate site I visited listed the HOA's for Kimbel Trace at $599 a month, and the other areas $404 a month.

I too loved the Tuscan Sun and was heartbroken when someone purchased it before I won the lottery.

Do you think they will take my 1200 sqft house in NC as a straight up trade?

Does the HOA fee include internet, phone, cable tv and landscaping for Kimball Trace?

It seems like from the website that these are meant to be vacation homes (2nd homes). Is that what y'all got from it (or from a tour)?
