Sun City Center, FL (May 21, 2014) — Minto Communities announces that work has started on Somerset, the company’s final and largest neighborhood in their gated Kings Point community at Sun City Center. “This will be the last opportunity for prospective homebuyers to purchase a new Minto home in Kings Point at Sun City Center,” notes Minto Vice President William Bullock. Minto also developed the Renaissance community within Sun City Center.
Sun City Center, named by Where to Retire magazine as a member of the Hall of Fame of Best Master-Planned Communities, is known as one of the country’s premier 55-and-over communities. Located between Tampa and Sarasota, Sun City Center is close to the many recreational, shopping, dining and cultural offerings of these nearby cities while offering its residents an unparalleled range of community amenities.
Nine fully decorated luxury paired-villa and single-family home models are open for viewing. Luxury paired villas range in size from 1,503 square feet under air to 1,862 square feet under air, and are priced from the $160s. All have covered, screened lanais and two-car garages.
Single-family homes range in size from 1,677 square feet under air to 3,086 square feet under air, and are priced from the low $200s. Distinctive Minto home designs feature bright, open living areas, designer kitchens, luxurious master suites and master baths and spacious closets, along with included premium features such as wood cabinets and granite countertops in kitchens and baths, tile floors, full GE appliance package and much more.
Sun City Center has 126 holes of golf spread over six ClubLink Corporation® managed golf courses, 14 tennis courts, 10 indoor and outdoor swimming pools and miles of walking and biking trails. In addition, there are four recreational centers, the full-service Spa Serenity, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, 97,000-square-foot Kings Point Clubhouse, 29,000-square-foot Kings Point South Club and 43,000-square-foot Club Renaissance with indoor running and jogging track, full-service Spa Celeste and two restaurants.
Residents find something for every interest in Sun City Center’s more than 200 activity and social clubs. Another unique aspect of life at Sun City Center is that residents can drive their golf carts on the streets.
Minto developed Sun City Center using its own funding sources, electing not to utilize Community Development District (CDD) funds. According to Bullock, “When a developer uses CDDs, the cost of infrastructure improvements is passed on to the residents. This fee shows up on the tax bill with average annual assessments ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 per year up to a maximum of 30 years. Minto didn’t want to burden our residents with this.”
The Sun City Center sales center is located at 105 Commercial Center Drive, Sun City Center, Florida. Sales center hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. For information, call 888-253-1567 or visit mintofla.com.
