Asturia, a master-planned community in Odessa, is celebrating its second Fall Festival on Sunday, Oct. 15 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. New residents, future residents and families from neighboring communities are all invited to this free event open to the public.
Fun activities for children and adults include hayrides, corn hole, bounce houses, sand art crafts, face painting, carnival games and a balloon artist. Hay will be provided for those wanting to stuff their own straw scarecrows (please bring your own pillowcase and old clothing). A variety of food trucks will be at the event, for those who want to buy lunch, snacks or sweets.
And, when Fall Festival guests are done playing and eating, they are invited to tour Asturia’s decorated model homes at Asturia. Ashton Woods, David Weekley Homes and ICI Homes are Asturia’s exclusive builders. All have model homes with on-site agents to assist homebuyers in selecting their next residence. ICI Homes is the community’s newest builder, and is opening its Costa Mesa model in late November. Builders offer a range of home sizes and architectural styles, with pricing ranging from the mid $200,000s to over $500,000.
Asturia offers residents a kid-friendly, family oriented lifestyle surrounded by miles of multi-use trails, interspersed with dog parks and pocket parks. Kids especially love the Kompan Playground. Everyone enjoys Asturia’s distinctive, 5,800-square-foot Amenity Center and Clubhouse, with its fully equipped state-of-the-art fitness center, covered outdoor living rooms, a luxurious resort-style swimming pool and expansive lawn areas for recreation.
It’s been only two years since Asturia began selling homes, and already the award-winning development has moved into its second phase. This new second phase has 157 large home sites, adding to Asturia’s first phase of 248 lots. Most Asturia homes back up to conservation areas, and all provide homeowners privacy and a peaceful, quiet surrounding. Many families have been waiting for Asturia’s second phase to open because its 55- and 65-foot lots offer some of the best woodland conservation views in the entire community. “These lots are some of the most beautiful in all of Pasco County,” said Kevin Jund, the community’s project manager. “Asturia really is an enclave, surrounded by 360-degrees of protected preserves of mature cypress and lush native vegetation.”
A boardwalk has been built to connect the two smaller neighborhoods within Phase II, which will tie into the community’s multi-use pathway that meanders for miles through residential areas, parks, playgrounds and the Amenity Center.
When Asturia’s development is complete in a few years, it will likely have less than 550 single-family homes. “What makes Asturia stand out from other new home developments in the area is our smaller size,” said Jund. “Other communities are looking at 3,000 to over 5,000 homes, and many years of construction. Many families prefer the intimate neighborhood experience that comes with our modest community size.” Asturia is a mixed-use, master-planned community located in the high-demand State Road 54 corridor in Pasco County. The community’s central location is just five minutes from the Suncoast Parkway and also provides close proximity to U.S. 41, U.S. 19 and I-75. Its master plan incorporates retail, office, multifamily and a variety of single-family residential offerings.
