With two buildings already sold out and several coach homes sold, The National Golf & Country Club at Ave Maria is quickly becoming home to people who are attracted to the golf course community.
“We’re moving at a good pace,” says Scott Schilling, area sales manager for Lennar Homes. “Ave Maria is the fastest selling town in the tri-county area. Word is getting out.”
Lennar opened its single-family Maria, Victoria and Bougainvillea models in the spring.
The first Veranda two-story building should open by the end of the year. It is completely sold, but there will be models open for the Arabella II, Bromelia II and Diangelo II floor plans.
“The Arabella II is the most popular because it’s an end unit with windows on the side,” Mr. Schilling says.
Sales are open for the second Veranda building.
Lennar is also opening models for the Arbor, Birkdale and Carolina in its Terrace four-story condominiums late 2021/early 2022.
Construction has also begun for Arrowhead and Bay Creek coach home models that should open early 2022. “These are very popular because they are larger units and have a two-car garage,” Mr. Schilling says.
Because of the pace of sales, Lennar has begun construction on the outdoor pool, fitness center, and tennis and pickleball courts. All are expected to open next summer.
“That’s always a good sign when you see the amenities coming so soon,” says Christina Traver, director of marketing.
With the golf course already open, construction has started on the pro shop, which is expected to open later this year or early in 2022.
Mr. Schilling says buyers are coming from the northeast and Midwest, which is typical, but he also sees a lot of folks from the east coast of Florida, especially those who want a second home.
“A lot more people are able to work from home,” he says. “I’m hearing more and more that people like the quietness in the mornings and evenings and they go back to the city on the weekends.”
He says the small town feel and slower pace of life in Ave Maria help people reduce stress.
“People get out of the busyness of Miami and West Palm and are able to relax, be in a golf setting, and enjoy the amenities we’ll have in place.”
He notes that with all of the businesses around Ave Maria’s town square fully occupied and additional outparcels being built and rented, there are shops, restaurants and services that residents need.
