Everything Moms Want in a New Home, is Included!

Everything Moms Want in a New Home is Included!

by LisaMarie Leihy,

One rainy morning in New Tampa, I joined a group of mommy certified bloggers to tour two of Lennar’s brand new model homes in K-Bar Ranch and three townhomes in Meadow Pointe.

After reading up on Lennar Communities, I was impressed to learn that Lennar has been Tampa’s #1 homebuilder for over 40 years.  After touring the properties, I can see why!  To put it simply, Lennar includes it all.  Here’s my list of the ten things I liked best about these Lennar homes.

Location. Every comment I’ve heard about real estate includes the phrase, “location, location, location” and the K-Bar Ranch homes and Meadow Pointe Townhomes are conveniently located next to A-rated public schools, fabulous shopping and restaurants at Wiregrass, and close to the vast interstate and highways around Tampa Bay.

Gated communities. Safe, secure, secluded. ‘Nuff said!

Views. Most of the home sites overlook natural wetlands, ponds, or conservation areas. Being so close to nature is a great science lesson waiting to be discovered.

Neighborhood amenities. Thanks to affordable HOA and CDD fees, I can kick back and enjoy family time over the weekend at the community pool, tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball courts, and leave the yard work to the professionals.Playgrounds at Lennar Tampa Bay Parenting

Home Automation System. This is the space age future I dreamed of as a kid! The Schlage Nexia Home Automation System allows homeowners to customize the door lock codes for each family member or house helpers as well as adjust the lights and thermostat from a smartphone or computer. Flying cars are next!DSC_0037

Rounded corners. The drywall corner beads are rounded which adds a touch of elegance and safety to an often overlooked feature. The simple things matter sometimes.

Appliances included. The K-Bar Ranch homes include GE appliances throughout. The large capacity washer and dryer helps save time and the environment.DSC_0063

Eco-smart. The energy efficiency of these homes is impressive. From Tech Shield Radiant Barriers and insulation in the attic, dual pane windows throughout, Sherwin-Williams eco-friendly paint, and the high efficiency Lennox air conditioner, these are cool, comfy and eco-smart homes.

Cabinets. The maple cabinets come in a few different finishes and include brushed nickel hardware and easy pull-out shelves on the base cabinets. The granite or quartz countertops can also be customized to suit color preferences without having to make trips to a home improvement center.

Blinds. The windows have stylish 2” white blinds included and installed before moving day. No more sheets in the window!DSC_0009

There are many other family friendly features that I did not mention but really are fabulous.  Go on a tour to discover what else is offered in the “everything’s included homes” promise at Lennar.  You’ll never look at homes the same way.
