Taking a peek at models can be a great way to see how a house could fit your needs and lifestyle. They let potential home buyers see how floor plans flow and how architectural details enhance the spaces.
Two new models opening at Westshore Yacht Club in South Tampa are providing home buyers more opportunities for conceptualizing and are yet another reason to visit the master-planned community, says Jackie Buckler, vice president of corporate marketing for WCI Communities, the developer of Westshore Yacht Club.
And to help home buyers realize their dreams, WCI Communities is offering a buy-down incentive through Florida Home Finance Group, an affiliate of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, which provides customers with a permanently lower interest rate, Buckler says.
"The buy-down interest rate that we are offering provides our customers the opportunity to purchase the home they want and get a great value," she adds.
While such a package is helpful, it hasn't been the only incentive drawing people to Westshore Yacht Club, Buckler says. Customers also are excited about the community's location and amenities, she says.
Westshore Yacht Club is on the shore of Old Tampa Bay, giving residents what few homeowners of new construction can have: year-round spectacular sunsets over the Bay and easy access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
"We're in historic South Tampa and within five miles of downtown Tampa, the West Shore District and St. Petersburg. Our location gives our buyers the South Tampa lifestyle with the added bonus of living on the water," she says. "That's ideal."
One of the newest model openings at Westshore Yacht Club is for its town homes, which include three floor plans, with 1,674 to 2,311 square feet of living space.
A new model is open in the luxury tower Castillo, which features three floor plans that provide 2,000 to 2,600 square feet of living space.
Plus, Castillo residents have access to the amenities throughout Westshore Yacht Club and access to the amenities within the 15-story tower, including a fitness center, grand salon, private theater and resort-style pool.
Expansive views of downtown Tampa and Old Tampa Bay are among the other amenities Castillo residents enjoy, Buckler says.
As for the other amenities offered at Westshore Yacht Club, she says, they include membership to the community's Bay Club, a 19,000-square-foot facility that anchors the community with its restaurant, pools, spa, bar, fitness center and billiards room.
In addition, there is an on-site marina that includes 149 boat slips for boats from 40 to more than 100 feet long.
All Westshore Yacht Club residents have access to the facilities.
"The Bay Club continues to offer more activities and special events for our residents and members," she adds.
"In addition to the themed buffets and holiday events, the Bay Club hosts kids' movie night, where you can enjoy dinner while your children are entertained with a special movie just for them, and Wine & Dine, which is when you have dinner at the Bistro you receive a complimentary bottle of wine with your meal."
Buckler says Spa Nautique, the full-service day spa at the Bay Club also continues to expand, having recently added another team member for nail services.
"Whether they desire a massage, facial, pedicure, manicure or all of the above, residents and club members never have to leave the community," she says.
Westshore Yacht Club offers a variety of home styles that fit nearly every kind of buyer's need - town homes, single-family homes, condominiums and Bayfront Estates - which feature homes up to five bedrooms, six bathrooms and nearly 6,000 square feet of living space.
Homes in Westshore Yacht Club are priced from the $290,000s to more than $3 million.
"Westshore Yacht Club's success validates the point that there are few offerings in the area with this complete range of amenities," Buckler says.
