After hectic years of working and raising children, many adults want to spend more time living life to the fullest. Lennar Homes is excited to introduce new affordable homes in two active adult communities in the Tampa Bay area that were created with those people in mind, according to Mark Metheny, division president for the Lennar Central Florida Division.

Cascades at Southern Hills in Brooksville and Tampa Bay Golf & Country Club in San Antonio feature the active adult lifestyle that many retirees and empty nesters are seeking.

"We are excited to be able to offer an affordable opportunity to retire in paradise," Metheny says. "Cascades at Southern Hills and Tampa Bay Golf & Country Club are beautiful communities in very desirable locations. Both feature a wide range of amenities as well as world-class golf courses."

To celebrate the grand opening of the builder's model homes in these two active adult communities, Lennar Homes is launching a Pick Your Paradise promotion on June 12. Visitors to either community can enter for a chance to win a trip to exciting adventure destinations such as Santorini in Greece, Papagayo in Costa Rica, or Patagonia in Argentina's Los Glacieres National Park. The grand prize will be awarded in the form of a $5,000 travel voucher that the winner may use to plan their dream vacation of a lifetime.

Located in Brooksville, Cascades at Southern Hills "was designed to make residents feel like they are on vacation all year round," Metheny says.

Southern Hills is home to the only Pete Dye-designed golf course in the Tampa Bay area. The Plantation Club features tennis courts and a state-of-the-art spa and fitness center complete with strength training equipment, cardio machines, personal trainers, a resort-style pool, steam rooms, spa treatment rooms, a lounge and picnic area. Cascades residents are able to purchase social memberships in The Plantation Club for a nominal fee.

Although Cascades is located in the tranquil setting of Hernando County, the Tampa Bay area and its attractions are about a 40-minute drive away.

"Lennar has two new beautifully furnished models in Cascades at Southern Hills and our available homes range in size from 1,340 to 2,023 square feet," Metheny adds. "The homes feature front porches where homeowners have a wonderful place to relax and chat with friends after a day of activity. Priced from $130,990 to $169,990, including standard home site, the homes are very affordable."

In Pasco County, Tampa Bay Golf & Country Club is a golf lover's dream, complete with an 18-hole championship golf course, a nine-hole executive golf course, an aqua driving range and a practice and putting green, but Metheny says the community offers so much more.

"The elegant clubhouse offers numerous activities for social interaction and recreation, including a restaurant and lounge, a fitness center, a resort-style pool and spa, a theater, a billiards and card room, an arts and crafts room, lighted tennis courts and shuffleboard courts, as well as a full-time activities director," he adds.

The community is convenient to all of the activities and attractions of the Tampa Bay area, as well as the Shops at Wiregrass, which are minutes away.

"We are offering two Lennar product lines in Tampa Bay Golf & Country Club, including our detached villa homes on 50-foot-wide home sites and single-family homes on 65-foot-wide home sites," Metheny says. "The homes range in size from 1,340 to 2,433 square feet and are affordably priced from $141,990 to $221,990, including standard home site."

Metheny says that Lennar Homes is known for the quality of its construction, but an even bigger value is that the homes include all the features that buyers often select as upgrades.

"Lennar's Everything's Included program means those features are already included in the purchase price, saving buyers thousands of dollars," he adds.
