"Nudist colony" is an antiquated term that hasn't been used for over 30 years. Such places are called nudist/naturist resorts, camps, or communities. Some resorts do have residential communities on the grounds where people can rent a house or build their own on leased land, depending on the particular place.
I would love to live someplace where I can freely go nude wherever I like, particularly anywhere on my own property, like people do in nudist resorts/communities. However, I personally like my solitude and can't stand having neighbors so I would much rather have a home far out in the country with no neighbors nearby. Such a location would also allow me to be nude anywhere on my property because of that solitude; the downside is that I wouldn't have the freedom from harassment if somebody from outside my property boundaries should see me nude (hence the desire to be as far from neighbors as possible). While a naturist community would be nice, just like living in a populated suburb that kind of neighborhood just isn't for me.
