(Tampa, FL) Luxury-home builder Costanza Homes has been selected asa preferred builder at Stonelake Ranch, a 685-acre community of just 160 executive and estate homesites ranging in size from 1.5 to nearly 19 acres, along 900-acre Lake Thonotosassa in eastern Hillsborough County.

According to community sales manager John Powell, Costanza is based in Tarpon Springs and has won numerous home-building awards on local and state levels. Owned and operated by Peter Costanza, the company designs and builds executive and estate residences from 2,800 to more than 10,000 square feet of living space.

Founded in 1972, Costanza Homes builds in high-end communities throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. At Stonelake Ranch, its residential designs are priced from the mid-$600s including homesite.

More than a third of Stonelake Ranch's homesites border the lake - Hillsborough County's largest - providing 10,000 feet of lakefront, sweeping water views as well as an island bird sanctuary.

About Stonelake Ranch
Residences are being built by some of the area's best-known custom and semi-custom home-building companies. The community's other preferred home-builders include Alvarez Homes, Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Bartlett Custom Homes, Campagna Custom Homes, John Cannon Homes and The Fechtel Co.

Residences must contain at least 3,500 square feet of living space if built on the water. Homes off the water can provide no less than 3,000 square feet of living space. Residential pricing runs from about $600,000 to more than $5 million including homesite.

Stonelake Ranch allows home owners to build private residential compounds - not just homes - with main houses, guest cottages, gazebos and much more ... all on one homesite. Moreover, they can build horse stables and enjoy the community's 40-foot-wide riding trails and 120 acres of undisturbed meadows.

The rolling hills in Stonelake Ranch include several of Hillsborough County's highest points ... some rising 80 feet above sea level. This, of course, provides expansive, unobstructed views of surrounding countryside, a rarity in this part of Florida.

Stonelake Ranch is being developed by Charles Funk and Jeff Meehan, who also created the highly successful community of Arbor Greene in the New Tampa area of Hillsborough County.
