Most new home communities here in Florida feature homes on 50 and 60 foot wide lots.
In some cases this can make it seem like the homes are right on top of each other.
Most people retiring to Florida don’t want a lot of upkeep, so the smaller lots work perfectly.
But a few communities are realizing that some people want a little more space to themselves.
Even The Villages, known for their 50,000+ homes seemingly one right after the other, recently tested selling a small section with much bigger lots.
(It sold out within a matter of weeks!)
If you’re among those looking for a little more “elbow room”, you might want to take a look at Stanton Estates.
As the name suggests, their homes are on much larger “estate-sized” lots.
Now, finding lots this size usually means living far outside of the city.
But these rare and spacious home sites are actually in a desirable urban setting close to eclectic shopping, dining, and entertainment options of the historic downtown Winter Garden area and only minutes from the popular West Orange Trail and Farmers Market.
Stanton Estates is not a huge master-planned community like you’re used to hearing about from me.
Instead, you’ll live amidst the vibrant downtown, yet be surprisingly secluded with “living room” usually reserved for much more suburban locations.
The houses are nice too. At Stanton Estates you’ll find authentic, old world charm and craftsmanship combined with contemporary convenience.
From the colonial style baseboards to the 8ft wood doors included throughout your home, to the open living areas and huge designer kitchens great for entertaining, all homes by Jones Homes USA provide you with more style and value as the standard features are usually an upgrade from other builders.
But with limited homes in this exclusive community, you should request more information sooner rather than later.
