Sponsored content: New homes and lots now selling in beautiful Asturia

Asturia, the intimately scaled, master-planned neighborhood in Odessa, is entering Phase 3 after selling over 235 homes in just three years. Developed by Hines and planned for only 550 homes when completed, Asturia’s premier, award-winning builders include Ashton Woods Homes, David Weekley Homes, ICI Homes and the latest addition to the exclusive builder family, Ryan Homes.

Beautifully decorated model homes are open daily and have on-site agents to assist homebuyers in selecting their next residence. There are a range of architectural styles with prices from the mid $200,000s to over $500,000. For families looking to move before the end of the year, inventory homes are available. All of Asturia’s builders offer customization and a commitment to top-quality construction.

Ashton Woods Homes offers a beautifully finished series of alley-load homes starting at $279,990. These spacious one- and two-story homes with front porches have over 2,000 square feet of living area and feature three to four bedrooms, two to three baths and two-car garages. If homebuyers use Ashton Woods’ preferred lender, these homes come with an appliance package and paid closing costs. In addition to its alley-load homes, Ashton Woods has an inventory of traditional homes from $299,999 and up with the garage in front, on 55- and 65-foot home sites.

David Weekley Homes is offering incentives on their quick-move-in homes of up to $40,000 off, if the sale closes before 12/31/18 and up to $15,000 off if a homebuyer purchases a home that they build from the ground up that closes in 2019. DWH is building a new model home in Phase 3 along with a series of seven new floor plans and design offerings.

In Asturia’s Phase 3, ICI Homes will have 22 large home sites on 55-foot lots, and 16 premium, extra large 65-foot lots. Two new models are being built, with pricing beginning in the low $300,000s. "We’ve had tremendous success since we began building in Asturia in late 2017, and many families are looking forward to our new floor plans on pristine conservation and water lots available in Phase 3," said Ron Ferguson, division manager of ICI Homes’ West Florida Division.

Ryan Homes is Asturia’s newest builder that has begun construction on rear-load townhomes priced in the mid $200,000s. The townhomes will feature open-concept floor plans ranging in size from 1507 to 1700 square feet. Located near the front of the community and within walking distance to Asturia Amenity Center, the townhome model will open in December on one of the 112 homesites.

Commercial parcels are for sale in the front of the community. "We’re hoping for a good anchor grocery store in our neighborhood retail center," said Lane Gardner, Senior Managing Director with Hines.

Residents enjoy Asturia’s distinctive Amenity Center and Clubhouse with covered outdoor living rooms, a resort-style swimming pool, fully equipped fitness center and expansive lawns for recreation. Asturia fosters a healthy, family-friendly lifestyle with miles of multi-use trails interspersed with pocket parks and a unique, Kompan playground for children.

Asturia is a mixed-use community centrally located five minutes from the Suncoast Parkway with close proximity to U.S. 41, U.S. 19 and I-75. Top rated schools are nearby. More information is available by visiting Asturia’s model homes, registering at the community’s website, AsturiaFlorida.com, or by calling (813) 510-3601.
