Asturia’s Uniquely Smaller Size
August 22, 2018 By Diane Kortus
More of a neighborhood than a sprawling development Asturia, a new home community in Odessa, stands out among other planned developments along State Road 54 in Pasco County because of its uniquely smaller size.
At build out in the next few years, Asturia will be a community of just 670 homes, while nearby master-planned communities have between 1,500 and 6,500 homes planned over several years of construction.
“Asturia feels more like a neighborhood than a sprawling community,” said Lane Gardner, managing director for Hines, Asturia’s developer that is based in Jacksonville.
“Our nature trails, pocket parks, first-class amenities and community events encourage residents to get to know their neighbors,” he continued. “Families choose Asturia because it is a friendly, walkable community that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle.”
Asturia’s builders offer a variety of home sizes and prices, making it ideal for families looking to buy their first home, and for growing families with school-age children that need larger homes. The community also attracts empty-nesters and seasonal residents who are downsizing to a smaller home, and want the latest in technological upgrades and energy efficiencies.
Asturia also stands out because its developer sponsors community events almost monthly to provide opportunities for residents to get to know their neighbors, and non-residents to see what it would be like to live in Asturia. Recent events include a 4th of July Pool Party, Hawaiian Spring Luau, and Dog Day Afternoon for people and their four-legged friends.
Since Asturia opened in February 2016, over 200 homes have been sold in its first two phases. Hines is launching a third phase later this year, which will add townhomes for the first time to its mix of homes.
Ryan Homes, one of the nation’s oldest builders with communities in 14 states, is building the townhomes, which feature garages in the rear of the home. Townhomes will sell in the mid $200,000s, and are being constructed near the front of the community, walkable to Asturia’s Amenity Center.
Later in Phase 3, Ryan Homes will also build traditional single-family homes. “We’re looking at townhome models opening toward the end of the year, or early in 2019,” said Gardner. “We are very pleased that Ryan Homes has joined us as a builder in Asturia, complementing our longtime builders — David Weekley Homes, Ashton Woods and ICI Homes.”
While infrastructure work is underway in Phase 3, home construction continues in Asturia’s Phase 2, which is tucked against pristine conservation and cypress-lined wetlands. “All of our Phase 2 home sites offer privacy and peaceful, quiet surroundings,” said Gardner. “Some of the prettiest and most private lots in the community are still available.”
Award-Winning Amenity Center – Asturia’s distinctive, 5,800-square-foot Amenity Center and Clubhouse has earned the prestigious Silver Aurora Award for the Best Recreational Facility from the Southeast Building Conference, as well as Best Mixed-Use Community of the Year.
This contemporary-design Amenity Center includes a fully equipped, modern clubhouse; covered outdoor dining areas; a luxurious, beach-entry, resort-style swimming pool; and an expansive event lawn for outdoor games. In the playground areas, there is a Kompan climbing dome, swings, slides, and spinners for youngsters to explore and enjoy.
