The second annual Holiday Festival is being hosted at Asturia — a master-planned community in Odessa — on Saturday, Dec. 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Youngsters will enjoy a candy cane express train, face-painting elf, balloon-artist elf, holiday carnival games, meet-and-greet surprise holiday characters, holiday treats and, of course, sitting on Santa’s lap and telling him what they want for Christmas.
And, when Holiday Festival guests are done playing, kids and their parents can tour Asturia’s beautifully decorated model homes.
Ashton Woods, David Weekley Homes and ICI Homes are Asturia’s exclusive builders. All have model homes open daily with on-site agents to assist homebuyers in selecting their next residence.
Ashton Woods’ newest model home is the Suwanee. This unique, one-story home features a two-car garage at the rear of the home. The Suwanee boasts four bedrooms, two baths and a spacious front porch. Total square footage is 2,024 square feet, and pricing begins at $274,990.
Ashton Woods has also recently completed its Lincoln showcase home, which is move-in ready. This 2,368-square-feet home is two stories, and features three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Its spacious family room flows seamlessly into the kitchen, which features a large center island, upgraded granite countertops, custom backsplash, stainless steel appliances and 42-inch designer Timberlake cabinetry. All the bedrooms are located on the second floor, as well as the laundry room.
ICI Homes is the community’s newest builder, and is opening its fully decorated Serena model in late December. This four-bedroom, three-bath home is 2,217 square feet and features a large gathering room, spacious gourmet kitchen and an owner’s suite with a master bath that leads into a large, double-entry, walk-in closet. An office or guest bedroom is off the home’s main living area, and two other bedrooms share a bathroom. The Serena has a two-car garage and begins at $329,900.
David Weekley Homes also offers homes with the garage in the rear with eight distinct floor plans in its Cottage and Garden series. It also builds traditional floor plans in its Lake and Manor series, which combined offers 14 floor plans.
All Asturia builders provide a wide variety of home sizes and architectural styles. Pricing begins in the mid $200,000s, and goes to over $500,000.
Award Winning Amenity Center
Everyone enjoys Asturia’s distinctive, 5,800-square-foot Amenity Center and Clubhouse, which earned the prestigious Silver Aurora for the Best Recreational Facility at the 2017 Southeast Building Conference.
The Amenity Center incorporates a fully equipped state-of-the-art fitness center, covered outdoor living rooms, a luxurious resort-style swimming pool and expansive lawn areas for recreation.
Asturia is a kid-friendly, family oriented lifestyle surrounded by miles of multi-use trails, interspersed with playgrounds, dog parks and pocket parks. The community has wide, meadow-like spaces, lovely ponds, thick stands of cypress and hardwood trees, and large tracts of scenic wetlands.
Second Phase Opens
It’s been only two years since Asturia began selling homes, and already the award-winning development has moved into its second phase.
This new second phase has 157 large home sites, adding to Asturia’s first phase of 248 lots. Most Asturia homes back up to conservation areas, and all provide homeowners privacy and a peaceful, quiet surrounding.
Many families have been waiting for Asturia’s second phase to open because its 55- and 65-foot lots offer some of the best woodland conservation views in the entire community.
A boardwalk has been built to connect the two smaller neighborhoods within Phase II, which will tie into the community’s multi-use pathway that meanders for miles through residential areas, parks, playgrounds and the Amenity Center.
When Asturia’s development is complete in a few years, it will likely have less than 550 single-family homes.
What makes Asturia stand out from other new home developments in the area is its smaller size. Other nearby planned communities have between 3,000 to over 5,000 homes, and are looking at several years of construction.
Asturia is a mixed-use, master-planned community located in the high-demand State Road 54 corridor in Pasco County. The community’s central location is just five minutes from the Suncoast Parkway, and also provides close proximity to U.S. 41, U.S. 19 and I-75. Its master plan incorporates retail, office, multifamily and a variety of single-family residential offerings.
