TAMPA, FLA. – John Cannon Homes Inc. has been added to the exclusive roster of preferred home builders at Stonelake Ranch – the gated community of 160 executive and estate homes on 900-acre Lake Thonotosassa in eastern Hillsborough County.
Situated on 685 acres of heavily wooded, rolling landscape, Stonelake Ranch homesites range from 1.5 to nearly 19 acres, each created to preserve the natural character of this former Florida ranch.
At Stonelake Ranch, Cannon will offer its extensive portfolio of residential designs with 3,000-6,000 square feet of living space and priced from $550,900 to $1.1 million plus homesite. Homesites start at $99,000 and range up to $979,000.
Selected Sarasota’s Best Builder for 2011 by readers of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, John Cannon Homes – based in Sarasota, Fla. – was founded in 1987. Since then, it has built more than 1,000 executive and estate homes in about 100 southwest Florida communities.
Owned by John and Phillipa Cannon, the company currently builds in Hillsborough, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Pasco and Pinellas counties.
More than a third of Stonelake Ranch’s homesites border the lake – Hillsborough County’s largest – providing 10,000 feet of lakefront, sweeping water views as well as an island bird sanctuary.
Residences are being built by some of the area’s best-known custom and semi-custom home-building companies.
Stonelake Ranch allows home owners to build private residential compounds – not just homes – with main houses, guest cottages, gazebos and much more … all on one homesite. Moreover, they can build horse stables and enjoy the community’s 40-foot-wide riding trails and 120 acres of undisturbed meadows.
Stonelake Ranch is being developed by Charles Funk and Jeff Meehan, who also created the highly successful community of Arbor Greene in the New Tampa area of Hillsborough County. Moreover, they are developing Boynton Beach’s Seabourn Cove, recognized as the nation’s largest green community of apartment homes by the National Association of Home Builders Research Center.
