Naples, FL (July 18, 2014) - Fiddler’s Creek today announced that it has entered into a joint venture with national homebuilder Taylor Morrison Home Corporation for the development of a brand new residential community, Oyster Harbor, featuring approximately 1,000 single-family homes within the luxury, master-planned community.
“This transaction represents the single-largest land sale within Fiddler’s Creek to date,” said Aubrey J. Ferrao, Managing Member of Fiddler’s Creek Community, LLC. “We are pleased to partner with Taylor Morrison on the development of the brand new Oyster Harbor community, which will nicely complement the residential offerings currently available and provide buyers with a high-quality product in a distinctive neighborhood.”
Taylor Morrison is an existing homebuilder within Fiddler’s Creek. Earlier this year, the builder acquired 16 remaining single-family home sites in the village of Amador and 54 single-family home sites in the village of Mussorie. The first two model homes are recently opened in Amador and feature tile roofs, ornamental detailing and lush landscaping. Taylor Morrison will be the exclusive builder within the Oyster Harbor Community at Fiddler’s Creek.
“We are delighted to build upon our relationship with Fiddler’s Creek, which is a preeminent residential development in Southwest Florida,” said Steve Kempton, Division President for Taylor Morrison. “We look forward to offering our customers an exciting opportunity to purchase beautiful new homes in Oyster Harbor. We give careful attention to building high-quality homes in exceptional communities where people can live an inspired lifestyle. With its world-class Club & Spa, Arthur Hill designed championship course ranked in Golfweek’s 100 Best Residential Golf Courses for nine years running and beach and boating amenities, Fiddler’s Creek is the perfect complement to the Taylor Morrison brand, and we are very excited to be a part of its future growth.”
