John Neal Homes Debuts Model In Country Club East –
Model Reflects Latest Design & Structural Trends Buyers Want
Southwest Florida – John Neal Homes is opening the Fairhaven II model in the Camargo neighborhood of Country Club East in Lakewood Ranch this Friday, May 18. This is a 3,367 square foot, three bedroom, three bath luxury home with a spacious lanai and outdoor living space. This home showcases extensive luxury design elements and options that are created to be personalized by the home buyer. According to the Sarasota Association of Realtors, the median home sale price in March (most recent data) was up 9.8 percent over last March. The available home inventory is close to a decade low. The market is poised for strength.
“Our time-tested, proven floor plans and superior construction standards meet the demands of today’s buyers. We’re offering what they want,” says John Neal. “Buyers are asking for more customized homes. They also enjoy the country club lifestyle and appreciate a gated, golf course community.”
The Fairhaven II is a custom Mediterranean design which features upscale fixtures, extensive king crown molding and trim throughout. “When people move to Florida, they want a Florida-style home. This home has a true Florida Coastal feel,” explains designer Janet Ladwig, with Charlene Neal PureStyle. “The paint color we selected in the master bedroom almost matches the sky so you feel like you are standing outside.”
The vibrant colors and textures and natural materials complement the artwork and furnishings. “We designed the interior with a couple in mind who love Florida, boating and the water, says Ladwig. “The trend today is to bring the outside in, so four rooms in this home face the pool area and golf course. There’s a seamless transition from interior to exterior living spaces.” This year, color is everywhere, so Charlene Neal PureStyle chose a palate that is “signature Charlene Neal—aqua, green, and navy with a nautical influence.”
Floor plan layout is also ideal for those who love to cook. The home features a chef-inspired kitchen with Carrara marble, GE Monogram Appliances, butler pantry, custom cabinets, wine reserve, and pot filler at the kitchen cooktop wall. “Between the oversized island and the breakfast table, you could serve Thanksgiving Dinner right there!” adds Ladwig.
“The momentum in Country Club East is strong. Demand is growing for the quality homes we build,” explains Neal, who recently purchased 23 home sites in Country Club East. “We’re seeing a growing demand for homes with the specialized lifestyle options we offer.”
John Neal Homes creates personalized homes that combine competitive prices, quality construction, and customized options. A fourth-generation builder and member of the Neal family of companies, John Neal Homes builds on over four decades of experience, design expertise, and a 99% buyer satisfaction. John Neal’s commitment to community service is evident in the numerous non-profits he and his company support.
