What a difference a year makes.
Since Bexley by Newland Communities debuted in Land O’ Lakes 10 months ago, this outstanding community has already distinguished itself as one of the Top 10 selling communities in the Tampa Bay market, and has been recognized as the best master planned community in the Southeast.
“We couldn’t be happier with the response we’ve received to Bexley,” said Pam Parisi, vice president of marketing for Newland Communities, the developer behind Bexley. “Our residents love the uniqueness of Bexley. It’s just a wonderful community to live in, whether you’re a family with kids, just starting out, or looking to downsize.”
Centrally located in Land O’ Lakes, at State Road 54 and the Suncoast Parkway, Bexley is an 1,825-acre community with significant conservation areas, that offers residents a sporty, social lifestyle that maximizes its pristine natural surroundings.
No doubt, people are taking notice of Bexley. The Southeast Building Conference recognized Bexley as the top master-planned community in the Southeast, awarding the community its highest honor, a Grand Aurora.
Central, Accessible Location
Bexley’s prime location next to the Suncoast Parkway offers fast, convenient access to many areas of Tampa and area beaches.
Bexley Village Drive has been open since the spring providing direct access to the Suncoast Parkway. It connects Tower Road to State Road 54, allowing residents to bypass Ballentrae Road for State Road 54 access.
Several commercial businesses have announced development plans in the area, including a convenience store and hotel. Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel is also building an emergency department within the Bexley community, which is scheduled to be complete in 2018.
Welcome to the Club
The Bexley Club, an award-winning lakefront clubhouse, is the hub of the community, with the popular Twisted Sprocket Café, a gathering place that is open to the public. Guests can enjoy a delicious menu of breakfast items, gourmet lunches, dessert, smoothies, wine, craft beer and coffee drinks served by Chef Ashley Davis and her team.
The second phase of The Bexley Club opened earlier this summer. It includes two resort-style pools, cardio-focused fitness center, screened-in game room, outdoor fire pit and an event lawn for community festivals and gatherings.
The newly constructed Bexley Elementary School opened its doors to students in August to help accommodate the many families that are moving to Bexley. Located within the community, the new elementary school features a state-of-the-art media and computer center. For upper grades, top-rated schools assigned to Bexley are Charles S. Rushe Middle School and Sunlake High School.
Trails and Parks
Spanning Bexley’s 1,200 acres of preserved wilderness are exceptional trails to hike, bike and run. Designed by outdoor-living pioneer Avid Trails, several outdoor Fit Stations are located throughout the trail to keep workouts interesting and fresh. The community also offers open space for sports fields, a BMX pump park bicycle course and custom-made playgrounds, as well as two dog parks (one for large breeds and the other for small).
Bexley is the fourth master-planned community for Newland in the Tampa Bay area,
joining other award-winning communities of Fishhhawk Ranch, Mirabay and Waterset in south Hillsborough County.
