BROOKSVILLE, Fla. - March 2, 2018 - PRLog -- Arthur Rutenberg Homes is showcasing their newly opened model home at Southern Hills Plantation in the 2018 Tampa Bay Builders Association Parade of Homes as well as Hernando County's Parade of Homes of the Nature Coast.

"We are excited to unveil the May River model home at Southern Hills Plantation," said Lori Garton, President of Lyons Heritage Tampa, LLC, an independent franchise of Arthur Rutenberg Homes.  "The May River blends perfectly with the authentic southern charm found in the community and demonstrates the quality craftsmanship homebuyers expect from an Arthur Rutenberg Homes design."

Located within the Estates neighborhood, overlooking the 7th hole green of the acclaimed Pete Dye Championship Golf Course, the 3,404 square foot May River includes three bedrooms, three baths, an expansive great room, den, bonus room and a three-car garage.

The welcoming foyer of the May River leads into an open living area, a gourmet kitchen and casual dining area. The large center island affords plenty of seating and the trademark concealed pantry is certain to delight even the fussiest chef.  The master suite is a luxurious retreat of peaceful solitude. The master bath features a Kohler oval sun-struck freestanding tub and exudes a Zen-like elegance to re-energize both the body and the mind. There are spacious closets and natural lighting throughout.  Separate hallways lead to the secondary bedrooms and private baths on the opposite side of the home. The outdoor living area beckons to come outside and relax while the expansive 10' pocket sliding glass doors slip magically away to seamlessly blend the outdoor and interior living spaces. Hardwood flooring extends throughout the home's living and entertainment areas, which are punctuated by coffered ceilings, granite countertops, a fireplace in the great room and stylish wainscoting detail in the den.

Parade visitors will find a color palette of creamy neutrals and seafoam blues in the primary living spaces while deeper tones and bright accents can be found in the den and bonus room spaces.  "I wanted the home to feel light, airy and sophisticated, but also warm and comfortable," said Kim LaQuire, Interior Designer for Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Inc.  "I was able to achieve this by using clean line furnishings with a southern infusion and by mixing natural materials. The combination of both stained and painted woods, iron accents, and brick tile on the great room fireplace give this home distinctive character."

The events, showcasing the best in newly built homes in Hillsborough and Hernando counties, begins this week.  The two weekends of the Tampa Bay Builders Association Parade of Homes are March 2through March 4 and March 9 through March 11.   The Hernando Parade of Homes runs March 16 through March 31.

"Arthur Rutenberg Homes is proud to take part in these signature industry events," said Garton.  "The Parade of Homes provides the opportunity to introduce prospective home buyers to our award-winning residences and remarkable community of Southern Hills Plantation."
