One of the best new home deals in west central Florida is at Channing Park near the FishHawk community, says John Hennebery, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison Homes.
New single-family homes at Channing Park are priced from the $130,000s.
"These low prices in Channing Park give buyers an opportunity to purchase in an area that would typically be more expensive," Hennebery says. "The feel of this community is intimate, yet spacious, due to the large home sites and landscaping. Also, for the first time, some of our classic plans like the Pinehurst will have upgraded options at no additional charge."
"The bottom line is that these are beautiful homes and it's pretty fantastic that they are available at such great prices right now," Hennebery says.
Many homes at Channing Park are surrounded by conservation. Sidewalks and benches throughout community allow residents to explore and enjoy the scenery.
Adding to Channing Park's value is the area's excellent schools, Hennebery says.
Children living in Channing Park will attend schools within five miles of the community, including FishHawk Elementary, Randall Middle and Newsome High.
"When you do discover and explore Channing Park, you feel like you're secluded, but still close to people, services, restaurants and shopping when you want to be," Hennebery says.
The community features 15 floor plans from Taylor Morrison's Estate and Grand collections, including several new ones, with 1,200 to 3,000 square feet of living space.
The one- and two-story Estate homes are on 50-foot-wide lots and provide 1,800 to 2,900 square feet of living space, three to five bedrooms, two to four bathrooms and a two-car garage.
Grand collection homes are on 60- to 75-foot-wide lots and offer 2,600 to 3,700 square feet of living space, three to five bedrooms, two to four bathrooms and a three-car garage.
