Westgate Village is the name of the newest village coming to Avalon Park Wesley Chapel, with up to 1,000 homes to be built by D.R. Horton, the country’s largest homebuilder.
In late July, Avalon Park Group/sitEX announced that it had closed on a 285-acre parcel adjacent to Avalon Park Wesley Chapel for its third phase, and that D.R. Horton will be the builder in Westgate Village.
“Our foundation is a single, guiding principle: a value-first dedication to the individual needs of each and every one of our nation’s homebuyers,” says Donald R. Horton, founder and chairman of the homebuilder.
D.R. Horton plans to break ground on Westgate Village during the first quarter of 2021, with plans to build townhomes and single-family homes, which will be built in two series — Express Series and Preferred Series.
Homes in the Express Series will be built on 40-foot to 50-foot homesites, and range in size from 1,239 square feet to 2,601 square feet. Floor plans will offer three to five bedrooms, two to three baths and one- or two-car garages, depending on a family’s needs.
The Preferred Series will include higher-end features and finishes. Homes will be built on 50-foot homesites and range from 1,844 square feet to 3,561 square feet. Floor plans will vary between three to five bedrooms, two to three-and-a-half baths and one- or two-car garages.
Townhomes will include three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and a one-car garage with a two-car driveway. Two floor plans will be available at 1,673 square feet and 1,758 square feet.
“I am looking forward to watching our dreams for this community continue to come to life with this newest addition,” says said Beat Kahli, president and CEO of Avalon Park Group/sitEX. “Working with D.R. Horton has been such a smooth process so far, and we cannot wait for the end result!”
The Westgate Village community will embrace its own set of amenities for its residents, including a resort-style pool, open-air clubhouse with an outdoor kitchen, playground, open sports field, and picnic area with pavilions.
All D.R. Horton homes will come equipped with a smart home automation system called Home is Connected, America’s Smart Home®. Both townhomes and single-family homes will be built with concrete block on the first and second floors — a superior construction process. D.R. Horton is the only production builder that utilizes concrete block on two floors in its homes.
Schools, Amenities and Downtown
Opening for the 2020-2021 school year is a new charter school at the community entrance, Pinecrest Academy Wesley Chapel, with 650 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. The school offers a core curriculum of English/language arts, mathematics, social science, science and electives, such as performing and fine arts, and world languages.
Few communities offer the recreational activities found at Avalon Park Wesley Chapel, thoughtfully created for residents of all ages. New in 2019 was an expansive second amenity center with a zero-entry pool, splash pad, spa and picnic area. Avalon Park families also enjoy a wide array of other amenities, including another swimming pool, tot lot, basketball courts, pocket parks with mini-libraries, dog park, and trails and walkways that will interconnect with its planned downtown.
Avalon Park Wesley Chapel soon will offer residents places to shop and work when its downtown center is completed. Infrastructure construction has begun on the first phase, which will include two office buildings, two mixed-use retail/residential buildings and a community park.
Avalon Park Wesley Chapel is east Pasco County’s premier master-planned community to live, learn, work and play. The plan includes 4,800 residential homes and over a half-million square feet of commercial and civic uses, where residents will be in walking and bike-riding distance to schools, shops, restaurants, workplaces and recreational amenities. Already, 1,500 people call Avalon Park Wesley Chapel home, and over 800 homes have been sold since it opened in 2012. The community will continue to grow over the next several years and, at build out, will be home to 10,000 residents.
