+ Builder announces new home models
London Bay Homes has opened its Clara model in The Founders Club.
The model boasts 3,248 square feet of living space with three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a den, formal living and dining rooms, a family room, an outdoor kitchen, a pool and a three-car garage.
The home features interior design work by Michael Scott, of Romanza Interior Design. It has a coast theme with colors of the beach, sea and tropical green.
The Clara is priced at $1.38 million furnished.
Additionally, London Bay Homes has started construction on its newest estate home in The Founders Club.
The Isabella Two-Story will expand a popular floor plan by adding a second story and a larger ground floor. It will offer a fourth bedroom, a fifth full bath and a total 4,283 square feet of living space.
“The Isabella has always been a popular design because of its openness and flow between indoor and outdoor areas,” says Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay. “This is how home buyers envision living in Florida, and the new plan will heighten the alfresco experience.”
London Bay Homes expects to complete the model in June.
