Southwest Florida— Neal Communities is celebrating the grand opening of three new models at River’s Reach— off Rye Rd. in Parrish, FL— with a family-friendly celebration that is open to the public. The grand opening event is set for Saturday July 20, 2013 from 11am – 2pm at 1571 Hickory View Circle, Parrish, FL 34219. Model homes at River’s Reach will be open from 10am – 5pm.
“We are excited to offer visitors plenty of family-friendly activities, refreshments, and fun while they browse through our three, brand new models,” said David Hunihan, director of sales for the Lakewood Ranch-based, new home builder. “River’s Reach remains a strong seller for us as growth continues to move north. We took strategic steps to re-ignite this community with great pricing, restyled homesites, and revitalized amenities in 2012. Now we are pleased to offer buyers these new floor plan designs in our second phase,” said Hunihan.
Neal introduced The Celebration Series at River’s Reach earlier this year with the opening of its new sales center, the Clear Day model. On July 20, two additional models, both in the Celebration Series, will open – the Starlight and the Sweetwater II.
“The response to the Clear Day has been phenomenal,” said Austin Solari, a new home sales representative at River’s Reach. “It will be great for buyers to see another floor plan that has never been modeled before— the Sweetwater II— plus, a different style of the Starlight model. Both are very popular homes,” he said.
Homes in the new phase range in size from just under 1800 square feet to more than 3000 square feet and are situated on quality, 50-foot homesites. With new home prices starting in the high $100s, homeowners can choose picturesque homesites that overlook the Manatee River, beautiful nature preserves, bird sanctuaries, or lakes. Neal set aside nearly half of the community’s total acreage as dedicated open space or preserve areas. This only adds to the natural allure of this beautiful, riverfront community in Manatee County.
The gated community offers the best of both worlds — natural seclusion and convenient access to shopping and dining in nearby Sarasota, Bradenton, and Parrish. River’s Reach features its own preserve area next to the Manatee River, a resort-style pool & spa, and fitness facilities for residents to enjoy. The community also boasts picnic areas, a children’s playground, a sand volleyball court, and a canoe & kayak livery, among other exciting amenities.
