RUSKIN, FLA. – Center Pointe Homes has opened the first model home from its latest series of residential designs – and its first in Hillsborough County – in Venetian at Bay Park, a community just east of U.S. 41 in southern Hillsborough County.
According to company founder Harold Baxter, the Savana model – 1105 Sheridan Bay, Ruskin – is a 1,750-square-foot floor plan that provides four bedrooms, two baths and a two-car garage. It is priced from $168,900 including homesite.
In Venetian at Bay Park, Center Pointe Homes offers eight floor plans priced from $125,900 to $168,900 including homesite. The plans range in size from about 1,100 to 1,750 square feet of living space, and provide two-, three- and four-bedroom plans, all with two baths and two-car garages.
As visitors enter the Savana model home, they will find themselves in a foyer over-looking the 17-by-18-foot greatroom. To one side of the foyer is a small hall way leading to two bedrooms and a bath, while at the far end of the greatroom is the home’s dining
area and access to the screened lanai.
Open to the greatroom is a kitchen with breakfast bar, walk-in pantry and access to the home’s laundry room and garage. Included in the base price is a GE appliance package with refrigerator, smooth-top range, microwave oven, and dishwasher, as well as Corian countertops.
Across the greatroom from the kitchen are the home’s fourth bedroom and the master bedroom suite. The suite features a 13-by-15 bedroom and an en suite bath with two-sink vanity, shower and oversized walk-in closet.
