Over the past three years, families of all ages and sizes have chosen Asturia as a place to call home, drawn to this master-planned community for its strategic location, beautiful homesites and excellent schools.
Situated on 500 acres in Odessa along State Road 54, and located less than a mile from the Suncoast Parkway, Asturia residents have fast and easy access to Tampa International Airport, the Westshore business district, downtown Tampa and area beaches.
Many of its homesites back up to incredible wilderness views of wetlands, cypress trees and rolling ranch land. Wildlife is everywhere, and residents enjoy community trails and boardwalks perfect for bird-watching, and to catch a glimpse of deer, gopher tortoises, racoons and other native animals, during an evening stroll or morning run.
Outstanding schools are another top reason why families move to Asturia. Children attend some of the best schools in Pasco County, including Odessa Elementary, Seven Springs Middle School and J.W. Mitchell High School. All three schools have received a minimum A or B school grade for the last three years.
Setting Asturia apart from other master-planned communities is its manageable size of just 550 homes. It is a friendly, walkable development that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle with its many trails, walkways, parks and recreational amenities.
“We feel more like an established community of neighborhoods, than a sprawling development that will be under construction for several years,” said Lane Gardner, managing director for Hines, Asturia’s developer. “Our residents like knowing that the size of their community is set, and that our amenities have been designed to provide enjoyment without the worry of overcrowding.”
Families also enjoy living in Asturia because of the distinct sense of community that Hines has encouraged by hosting family events to make it easy for residents to get to know each another.
“Residents love our community events because it gets them together with neighbors, and lets them welcome new and prospective homeowners,” said Gardner. “We host events on a regular basis because they’re fun, and promote the friendly community culture Asturia is known for.”
Recent events include an Easter Egg Hunt, Oyster Roast, Cinco de Mayo Celebration and Hawaiian Luau. The community also celebrates the holidays with an annual Fall Festival and a Christmas Party.
Asturia’s award-winning Amenity Center has a zero-entry, resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and contemporary clubhouse. Neighborhood parks include a Kompan play structure, Ga-Ga Ball court, dog park and open event lawns.
A low cost HOA and CDD are well worth the benefits of living in Asturia, with fees considerably less than other master-planned communities in Pasco County.
Award-winning builders are offering a wide selection of floor plans and prices in Asturia’s final phase, and have new model homes ready to tour. Quick move-in homes are available for families looking for a new home in time for the 2019-20 school year.

International developer Hines is known for its intelligent, ecologically smart design. It manages the community’s master plan with its high standards, which makes Asturia the most sustainable, eco-friendly community in Tampa Bay.
