“North Tampa is definitely one of our strongest markets” said Cammie Longenécker, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison West Florida. “The communities there provide the convenience of easy access to urban amenities, while still offering the flavor of a small-town atmosphere with open spaces. Homes are available in a range of sizes and price points to meet the needs of families, professionals and retirees.”
One of Taylor Morrison’s most sought-after developments is the exclusive low-maintenance Tuscany at Tampa Palms. Tampa Palms is New Tampa’s premiere master-planned community complete with homes, retail spaces, schools and restaurants sprawled over 5,400 acres along the Hillsborough River. Tuscany at Tampa Palms offers the peace of mind of new construction in an established community with gated security. It is also prized for its convenient location near USF, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club, and major roadways and interstates.
Taylor Morrison recently purchased 77 home sites in the nature-centered Tuscany enclave, most situated on quiet cul-de-sacs with water or preserve views. Five flexible floor plans feature a variety of single- and two-story designs, many including universal design features to accommodate the needs of aging or disabled homeowners.
One of the most anticipated homes in Tuscany at Tampa Palms is the new Darlington floor plan, now available as a showcase home. The spacious floor plan includes 2,585 square feet of living space with four bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a two car-garage. The first level is home to a family room, dining room, den, private master suite, covered lanai, and a well-planned kitchen with walk-in pantry. Upstairs are three bedrooms, a loft area and an optional bonus room. Due to the high demand for the Darlington and limited amount of home sites, lot reservations are available on a first come first serve basis.
Just a few miles to the north is the Land O’ Lakes neighborhood of Lake Thomas Pointe. This gated community is nestled on the southern shore of its 180-acre namesake lake and features a waterfront boardwalk with a dock for swimming, paddle boats and canoes. Estate-sized lots complement the larger scale homes and add to the rural feeling of this community. Taylor Morrison will offer its Platinum Series here through the end of the year, which includes top-to-bottom designer upgrades in every room, plus energy saving features and a full one-year homeowner’s warranty. With five available floor plans, homes feature four- and five-bedroom designs and range in size from 2,571 square feet to nearly 3,400 square feet. Prices start in the $280s with no community development district (CDD) fees, low homeowners association (HOA) fees and only 18 estate homesites available.
The nearby neighborhood of Ladera is another thriving Taylor Morrison development. Located in Lutz just north of Carrrollwood, this gated community includes just 168 single-family homes with spacious floor plans and generously-sized homesites up to one full acre. The centerpiece of the neighborhood is beautiful Lake Merrywater with its adjacent park, boardwalk and gazebo. The community also has its own strolling park. Potential homebuyers can tour the new Mediterranean-
With close to 400 permits pulled and 400 homes net sold to date, the West Florida division is poised for growth in 2011. Available move-in ready homes are moving quickly with year-end incentives.
