(Land O’ Lakes, Florida) – Pulte Homes has purchased an additional 80 acres of land in Land O’ Lakes to expand its presence in Pasco County. The purchase closed in early January 2023 and will be used to expand the homebuilder’s Whispering Pines by Pulte community. Pre-sales are ongoing and the community is scheduled to host its grand opening on March 25th.
Located off Lake Patience Road, Whispering Pines by Pulte will offer 330 single-family homes when fully completed. Approximately 100 homes will be built on the additional 80 acres, while 228 homes are already slated in the first phase of the community.
Whispering Pines’ is ideally located with close proximity to State Road 54, Interstate 75, Veterans Parkway, and Suncoast Parkway, making for a smooth commute to work centers in Wesley Chapel, downtown Tampa Bay, and Brandon. Other everyday conveniences such as shopping, supermarkets, dining, and entertainment outlets are also a short drive away, including Tampa Prime Outlets, Wiregrass Mall, Westfield’s Brandon Mall, and Citrus Park Town Center. Tampa International Airport is approximately 35 minutes away.
In addition to consumer-inspired floor plans of one-and-two-story homes, homeowners will enjoy an outstanding array of resort-style amenities for all ages within a gated community. Construction will begin soon on the community clubhouse with a spacious cabana, a swimming pool, and splash buckets that will keep children entertained for hours. Other planned amenities include waterside walking trails, children’s playground, hammock lawn, grilling area, and a dog park with sections for both large and small dogs.
Students who live in the Whispering Pines community are currently zoned for highly desired Oakstead Elementary School, Charles Rushe Middle School, and Sunlake High School.
