Southwest Florida — Neal Communities will unveil its newest community, Fairfield, in Manatee County during the public grand opening on November 3 & 4, 2012. Located at 5430 Chatham Square Way – off of SR 70, just west of Natalie Way– Fairfield is conveniently located near the heart of downtown Bradenton with great shopping, dining, and beaches, just minutes away from I-75 and US 41.
“We have owned this property for quite a while,” said Neal Communities’ president, Pat Neal. “We held off on building it until the time was right, and with the quickly, recovering market and our record sales year, we knew the time was now,” said Neal. With record-breaking sales so far in 2012 that have surpassed 2011, Fairfield will be the second new community opened by Neal this year, adding to the builder’s already strong presence in the region.
Fairfield’s maintenance-included paired villas are 1,434 sf and 1,524 sf, respectively, and will be priced from the high $100s. The architectural detail and overall design of the Crystal Sand and the Tidewater is the epitome of vacation-style living. Both villas are brand new plans from Neal and the models at Fairfield are the first ever models of these plans. Amenities at Fairfield include a beautiful pool, spa, cabanas, and a clubhouse – the perfect oasis for relaxing and soaking up the Florida sunshine.
“We expect this community to fill a unique niche in the market place,” said David Hunihan, director of sales for the Lakewood Ranch-based builder. “The value is right, the timing is right, and the location of the community is ideal,” said Hunihan.
Neal has lead the market by strategically timing new community openings over the past five years, introducing new product lines into the market every year. Neal’s innovations include: the cottage series at Forest Creek in 2008, River Sound in 2009, a full spectrum of plans in Central Park in 2010, Woodbrook in 2011, and Grand Palm and Fairfield this year. “From location to product, we truly have something for everyone,” said Hunihan.
