Thirty-eight of those homes in the Southwest Phase are under contract by Darling Homes and will be known as the Verandas at Southlake. They will be designed with the empty-nester buyer in mind – though will not be age-restricted – and will range from 2,500 to 3,700 square feet and be priced from the high $400’s to the mid $600’s.
The other 33 homesites will be located in the Southeast Phase custom neighborhood, which will feature homes custom-built by Simmons Homes; private, gated streets; and lake views for 17 of the sites. The Southeast Phase, known as the South Village of Watermere, requires one resident per household to be 55+. Residents of this phase, unlike the Verandas, will have the option of joining the Watermere Clubhouse which will include packages of services and amenities.
“Simmons Homes will be offering a wide range of custom-designed luxury residences ranging from 2,500 to 4,000 AC feet – mainly single-story – with additional 2-3 car garages and ample outdoor private living spaces,” said Scott Simmons, president of Simmons Estate Homes. “The uniqueness of these residences will be the owner’s ability to build a custom home in a gated community in Southlake, and downsize their unused interior spaces and the excessive yard maintenance they currently have. Homes in the South Village of Watermere will be priced from $495,000 to $750,000 and above, and will be available in late 2013.”
Construction of the infrastructure for the Verandas at Southlake will begin in January, with the lots being ready for purchase by late spring 2013. The entire project has an estimated 3-year build out, Simmons said.
“Since its founding over 25 years ago, Darling Homes has been recognized as a leader in the design and construction of zero lot line patio homes, and we are very excited to showcase our expertise in the Verandas at Southlake,” said Larry Delzell, president of Darling Homes. “We believe that there is a strong unmet demand in the Southlake area for homeowners looking to downsize to a more convenient lifestyle with less maintenance, while keeping the luxury amenities they are used to. Since the Verandas at Southlake will be a non-age restricted community and will include a beautiful landscaped park in its midst, we can appeal to empty nesters of all ages who are looking for award winning designs and customer service in a one or one and a half story home in a superb location.”
