D.R. Horton, a national home builder known for its award-winning gated communities, is currently busy developing The Preserve at West Villages in Venice. The Preserve is located near the western banks of the Myakka River and just north of the Tamiami Trail as it heads towards the Everglades; this part of town is ideal for home buyers looking for new construction opportunities that offer lots of space and luxury.
As its name suggests, The Preserve is a neighborhood surrounded by nature. Development started in 2017 with six floor plans that combine the architectural sensibilities of Florida ranch-style homes with Mediterranean design. Even the two-bedroom Canterbury model features 1,526 square feet of living space. Large families may want to consider the Bedford model, a two-story floor plan with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and an upstairs loft space that can be turned into fourth bedroom if desired.
Aside from new and very attractive designs, the homes at The Preserve offer extras such as driveways built with paver bricks, decorative tiled roofs, covered lanais, and granite counter tops. Most homes are nestled within forest meadows; a few properties feature lake views. Residents enjoy a maintenance free community with plenty of green spaces and nature trails; there’s also a swimming pool, a clubhouse, and courts where bocce and pickle ball can be played. The large and modern exercise center will please even the most fitness conscious home buyers.
One of the most attractive factors for home buyers is the West Villages Town Center, which in the near future will offer grocery stores, cafés, restaurants, shops, small clinics, and more. The convenience of a shopping center that is within walking distance of The Preserve is undeniable.
As of 2018, pricing at The Preserve ranged between $238K and $322K; although home values in this neighborhood have appreciated substantially since 2017, they are still very reasonable when considering that these are new construction homes built under warranty by D.R. Horton.
