The developer plans to create over 20 all-new luxurious architectural designs to be offered on 1,180 homesites within four distinctive Wiregrass neighborhoods, all targeting the move-up buyer segment. With a grand opening planned for the beginning of 2014, Standard Pacific Homes will offer all-new home designs that feature large-scale open spaces and thoughtful design details suited for modern people.
“As one of the few remaining parcels of land in this prestigious setting, Wiregrass is a perfect match for Standard Pacific Homes’ growth strategy which focuses on building exceptional communities in premier locations,” said Southeast Regional President for Standard Pacific Homes, David Pelletz. “The top-caliber quality of the community will serve as a flagship for future master-planned communities being created by Standard Pacific Homes in the Florida market.”
The homes will range in size from 1,800 to 5,000 square feet and will feature elegant exterior styles including Italianate, Spanish and European Cottage. Another notable feature is the highly-appointed gourmet kitchen that flows into an expansive great room, an ideal space for entertaining and everyday life, says the company. The homes will also introduce an indoor/outdoor living concept as well as master suites outfitted with spa-like master baths.
The amenity package includes a clubhouse, tennis courts, a lap pool, a lagoon-style pool, a community playfield and a walking trail system. Located less than two miles from the community is The Shops at Wiregrass, an affluent shopping mall offering 800,000 square feet of retail, restaurants and entertainment options. The surrounding area also includes quality schools, a community college, the Florida Hospital–Wesley Chapel–and a 100-acre regional park. Plus, the community offers direct access to job opportunities as one of the two main gateways into the Tampa Business District.
