Manatee County, Fla. – Neal Communities’ newest neighborhood near Lakewood Ranch in Manatee County started off strong, with seven sales in two weeks since its grand opening on December 8, 2013. The community is located just south of State Road 64, conveniently located near shopping, great schools, and just a few miles from Interstate 75.
“Eagle Trace is close to everything, and we expect its central location to drive sales here,” said David Hunihan, Neal Communities’ Director of Sales.
Eagle Trace offers single-family homes from Neal’s Celebration series, and paired villas from the Coral Series. One of the models featured at Eagle Trace is the popular White Sand 2, which has never been modeled before, and two villas — the Crystal Sand and the Tidewater.
Eagle Trace is a maintenance-included community that will feature a recreation center, two dog parks, a children’s playground, tennis court, and a community pool. The first phase will include 182 homesites, with additional phases scheduled to open in 2014. The first homeowners are expected to move in during the first quarter of 2014.
Eagle Trace is one of ten new communities the Lakewood Ranch-based, new home builder opened in 2013, helping to fuel record breaking sales results all year. “We expect to end this year with more sales than ever before in company history, with 795 sales so far,” said Hunihan.
