With their children grown, Monique and Monty Trice were looking for a dream home that both they and their visiting families could enjoy. After months of searching in communities south of Tampa, they decided to focus on finding a place closer to their existing townhome in Westchase. Their search led them to Bexley in Land O’ Lakes. After exploring the new Pasco County community, just off State Road 54, the couple knew right away they had found what they were looking for.
“We got to Bexley, and immediately I thought, ‘this is home’,” said Monique.
The semi-retired couple settled on The Willow floorplan by Lennar, a 2,500-square-foot, four-bedroom, two-story home with two large master suites, one on each floor.
“Having a bedroom on the first floor was very important to us,” added Monty. “We have older family members who visit, and it’s important to us that they’re comfortable and they don’t have to climb any stairs.”
Bexley’s location, approximately 26 miles from Tampa, was a big draw for the couple.
“It’s really a hidden gem,” noted Monique of the community. “It’s a very easy commute for us to get to work.”
The couple also appreciated the unique home styles, the distinct architecture found in Bexley and the outstanding amenities.
“There’s so much to do, it feels like you’re at a resort,” said Monty. “Our weekends are full of adventure with the different community activities that are scheduled, such as concerts and the Bexley Morning Market.”
Set within 1,825 acres of pastoral ranch lands, mature woodlands and cypress wetlands, Bexley residents enjoy two resort-style pools, a game room and miles of multi-surface Avid™ trails for biking, jogging or walking. For kids and grandkids, there are custom-built playgrounds to enjoy, Mud, Sweat and Gears Park for soccer or football games, and a BMX bicycle pump track. There’s even the BarkYard Park for four-legged residents, with separate spaces for big and small dogs.
“We designed Bexley so that it would be the ideal community for people at all stages of life,” said Pam Parisi, Vice President of Marketing for Newland Communities, which developed Bexley. “There are single-family homes, along with low-maintenance townhomes and villas. So whether you’re a single professional, a growing family or an active retiree, we have a home for you at a variety of different price points.”
“Whatever stage you are, Bexley is a fit! We love that we have such a diverse set of neighbors. Some have children, and we get to watch them grow up. Others are retirees. We love to have impromptu gatherings together. They’ve all become like family to us.”
