Winter Garden, FL—Canopy Oaks residents and several hundred guests celebrated the Winter Garden community’s first anniversary with a picnic under the shade of towering oaks in the neighborhood park. Guests were treated to a concert by the West Orange High School Jazz I ensemble and authentic southern BBQ prepared and served by 4Rivers Smokehouse. Four luxury estate homes, built by A.R. Bailey Homes and ready for immediate occupancy, attracted visitors from all regions of Orlando. Young families with children, retirees, and vacation home buyers alike attended to tour the Excel award-winning Sanibel designated Florida’s best new model home priced from $500,000 to $1 million.
Developer Mason Simpson noted the large number of buyers seeking an ultra-luxury home suited to multi-generational family living.
“We are seeing a large number of ‘sandwich generation’ buyers, often professional couples accompanied by children and parents,“ said Simpson. “We designed a six bedroom home with two master suites, one up and one down, for this growing need. All of our homes feature two-stories, three car garages, and great room floor plans with oversized kitchens and dining areas.”
The four bedroom Sanibel was recently named Best New Model Home in Florida by the Southeastern Builder’s Conference. In addition to a great room on the first level, a second great room is included upstairs to provide a very comfortable extra living space between the bedrooms. This home is noted for its open plan and provides wonderful opportunities for entertaining friends and family.
Nearly one-half of the visitors interviewed after viewing the open houses on display mentioned the Delray model’s first floor layout that allows owners to host a dinner party seating up to 18 guests at one time. The Delray boasts a walk-in wine cellar, a Viking natural gas kitchen with two kitchen islands, a large indoor dining room and adjacent outdoor dining area.
“These new homes offer the ultimate floor plans for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining,” said Tom Garver, President of A.R. Bailey Homes, our Builder-Partner. “The award-winning Canopy Oaks’ models are the evolution of decades of creating custom homes for today’s trend in multi-generational living.”
