LITHIA, Florida – Now through April 19, 2014, FishHawk Ranch is hosting this year’s Parade of Homes Showcase Home, the Venezia, designed and built by Homes by WestBay. AMERICAN NEWLAND COMMUNITIES and their joint venture partner NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH) are proud to host this coveted designation, given by the Tampa Bay Builders’ Association, which has already attracted 400 visitors since the Parade began April 5.
“A Newland community has hosted the Showcase Home for three consecutive years—a display of our commitment to providing exemplary home choices for our residents,” said Tom Panaseny, VP of operations for Newland Communities. “Our strong relationships with high-quality builders are one of many reasons why people are drawn to our communities, like FishHawk Ranch.”
The Venezia is noted for its acute attention to detail and design as well as its spanning 6,339-square-foot floor plan. At the entrance, a two-story rotunda foyer welcomes guests into the home. The grand room, accented with stone walls and a fireplace, flows seamlessly into the gourmet kitchen with quartz countertops and high-end appliances. A master suite, den, three bedrooms and a game room provide plenty of additional space for families to relax and host guests.
The Preserve at FishHawk Ranch, which opened in fall 2013, is a luxury neighborhood surrounded by environmentally protected land. The secluded, gated neighborhood boasts large home sites and model homes designed to complement the enclosing woods. It also includes a boardwalk connection to the trail system, which can be used to access the Starling Club, complete with two pools, a playground and a dog park.
Additional builders for The Preserve include Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Ashton Woods Homes, Cardel Homes, David Weekley Homes, and Sabal Homes. Homes are priced starting in the $475,000s.
