David Weekley Homes Opens for Sales in Encore at FishHawk Ranch

Tampa, FL (March 1, 2016): David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest privately-held builder, is now selling in the 55+ community of Encore at FishHawk Ranch by Newland Communities, in Lithia, FL. Since opening for sales on February 19, Weekley Homes has already sold 14 of 20 homesites available within its phase one release.

Located in the master-planned Newland community of FishHawk Ranch, the age-restricted Encore features one-story homes and The Oasis, a 5,000-square foot amenity center developed by David Weekley Homes.

FishHawk Ranch has been one of Tampa Bay’s top-selling communities for many years and is sought after for its amenities, conveniences, beautiful homes, connectivity to nature and extensive lifestyle options, said Shad Tome, Area President for David Weekley Homes over Orlando, Tampa and Sarasota. Since 1997, David Weekley Homes has built 675 homes in FishHawk Ranch, which features families in all life stages.

Encore is the first age-qualified community for the builder and features three series of homes: Classic, Signature and Tradition, ranging in size from 1,600 to 2,600 square feet, with five fully-furnished model homes now open. This new line of homes features a lifestyle-driven approach to home design with ample customization options and in communities that are built to encourage neighborly get-togethers.

“To fit the specific desires of the Boomer population, our Encore homes are all one-story, open floor plans precisely designed for entertaining and social gatherings,” Tome said. “The owner’s retreats are expansive with well-appointed owner’s baths designed to treat the owner to relaxation and pleasure. Whether it’s an outdoor entertaining kitchen, a pool, space, garden, fire pit and so on, the outdoor spaces are crafted to allow for unique personalization to meet the specific needs of each owner.

“The hallways and doorways are wider than usual to allow our Boomer homebuyers to age in place and enjoy their home into their later years,” Tome said.

The five model homes and The Oasis at Encore at FishHawk Ranch by David Weekley Homes are open daily for tours. For more information about Encore at FishHawk Ranch, contact 866-493-3553.
