Sponsored content: Visit new model homes in Asturia's final phase

Award-winning builders David Weekley Homes and ICI Homes have new models for buyers to tour this Spring. Ryan Homes has just launched their elegant townhomes and have already sold 11 in their opening month! Ashton Woods has a few single-family homes in inventory so buyers need to act fast. Developed by the international real estate firm Hines, Asturia is a signature, master planned neighborhood in Odessa on SR 54 just 1.5 miles west of the Suncoast Parkway. Families like Asturia because of the nearby A-rated schools. Everyone enjoys living on the rich soil of the former Behnke Ranch with easy access to major transportation corridors.

Designed with sustainability in mind, Asturia has abundant green spaces, a trail network, playgrounds, a dog park, and an impressive Amenity Center with a luxurious swimming pool and fully equipped fitness center. Florida Home Builders Association honored Asturia as Best Mixeduse Community. There is a commercial/shopping area in the front of the community.

"Families choose Asturia because we are a friendly, walkable community that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle," said Lane Gardner, managing director for Hines. "Asturia feels more like a neighborhood than a sprawling development."

With only 550 homes slated for the whole community, Asturia is unique while nearby master planned communities have thousands of homes planned. Asturia is truly a neighborhood with a sense of togetherness.

Homes in Asturia range from $250,000s to $550,000s. Many builders are offering special incentives for buyers. David Weekley Homes says one can build from the ground up or select from their quick-move-in homes. Their new Village model, The Crestview in Phase III, features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a study and a two-car garage. This lovely model home is now ready for tours.

ICI Homes, Florida's Custom Home Builder, will be unveiling its newest model, the Costa Mesa, in May. This popular and award-winning floor plan features 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a 3-car garage. This model home is located on a beautiful home site with breathtaking water views, as are several of ICI's home sites in this final phase. In addition to offering award-winning floor plans that can be customized to your desires, ICI Homes also has several showcase homes that are move-in ready or are in the final stages of construction.

Ryan Homes' Chopin and Haydn models will give home buyers an idea of what maintenance-free townhome living is all about. They feature open floor plans, designer options and rear-loading two-car garages giving one plenty of space to store sports equipment and cars.

Asturia had an Oyster Roast April 11 and an Easter Egg Hunt recently. Sponsored by Hines, these events give people a sense of what it would be like to live in this beautiful, intimately scaled neighborhood. Learn more about Asturia and the builders by visiting
