Wimauma, Fla. (Nov. 20, 2017) – Lennar has announced that it will build its first Tampa Bay area active-adult homes in the new Montage at SouthShore Bay community. SouthShore Bay will be the area’s second community with a Crystal Lagoon, a 6-acre aquatic amenity with crystal clear water where residents can swim, kayak or even use a small sailboat.
The floorplans in the south Hillsborough County community have been designed with “aging in place” in mind. Montage at SouthShore Bay will have eight model homes, featuring both single-family homes and villas. The single-family homes will open for sale in January and the villas will begin selling in March.
Lennar’s single-family homes in the community range from the 1,683-square foot “Morningtide” with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage, to the 2,775-square-foot “Daybreak” with three bedrooms, 3 ½ bathrooms and a three-car garage. Each home has an open layout and outdoor patio space, and the master bathroom includes spacious, open-entry showers with built-in benches for comfort and convenience.
The villas in the community are one- or two-story, two-bedroom homes with a one-car garage and flex space or a loft. Select villas will be furnished as part of Lennar’s “Stay and Play” option, where prospective residents can experience the community and stay for a few days before purchasing a home.
The homes include ULTRAFi, which will provide internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second, where residents can use multiple devices at once and it will not slow down the internet speed.
The Crystal Lagoon in SouthShore Bay is the second Lagoon under construction in the Tampa Bay area – the other Lagoon is in Epperson in Pasco County, where Lennar is also building single-family homes.
A concept that began in Chile and is now gaining popularity around the world, the Crystal Lagoon’s technology uses remote monitoring to constantly keep the water clean and clear, using fewer chemicals than a backyard pool. The Lagoon in SouthShore Bay will also have a family beach, tide pool and cabana area.
“The amenities in SouthShore Bay fit the active adult lifestyle that Floridians are looking for, with a wide range of outdoor activities,” said Mark Metheny, Division President for Lennar in Tampa. “Our floorplans can fit families of all sizes, and the villas are perfect for empty nesters who want some extra space.”
All Lennar homes in Montage at SouthShore Bay are part of Lennar’s “Everything’s Included” program, with a number of upgraded features included in the list price. Homes are move-in ready with everything from a large-capacity washer and dryer to 2-inch designer blinds on all the windows. Each home comes with a full set of GE® ENERGY STAR® appliances, elegant finishes such as raised panel interior doors with satin nickel hardware, and marble windowsills.
SouthShore Bay is a gated community with a dog park, walking trails, golf cart paths, shaded tot lot and zen garden, conveniently located near Interstate 75 south of Tampa.
