Southwest Florida – John Neal Homes is currently constructing its newest model in the Highfield section of The Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club. At just under 5000 square feet, it will be the largest new home model in Lakewood Ranch when completed. “We saved the best for last,” said John Neal, president of the Lakewood Ranch based new home building company.“This model will be amazing in every way, from the gorgeous golf course homesite to the grand open floorplan and the meticulous design features inside. It has it all,” said Neal. With large wooded trees and oversized homesites, Highfield is within walking distance to the 44,000 square foot clubhouse.
The Barbados II model is 4998 square feet under air and will include 4 bedrooms and 4 1?2 bathrooms, plus a den, club room and bonus room upstairs. The Italian Villa style home will be completely turnkey and available for leaseback. The model is expected to be completed by February 2013 in time for the Home Builder’s Association Parade of Homes.
The Highfield neighborhood in the Lakewood Ranch Country Club is the last new home section being built in the exclusive, gated golf course community with all homes exclusively built by John Neal Homes. “Highfield is exquisite with its mature trees, beautiful homesites and golf course views,” said Laura Stavola, sales manager at John Neal Homes. “Buyers get the best of both worlds here- the exclusivity of a private gated community coupled with the convenience of being located close to Sarasota and Bradenton off of University Parkway. It’s country club living with a location that is close to everything and pricing from the low $900’s,” said Stavola.
