Ponte Verda, FL (September 9, 2014) – AV Homes is joining the team of select homebuilders in Nocatee, the Ponte Vedra community that’s ranked as the third best-selling master-planned community in the U.S. Initial plans are to launch sales December with six new home designs.

An award-winning national builder and community developer, AV Homes’ residences will be offered in Nocatee’s newest neighborhood, Cypress Trails, with planned pricing from the $210,000s.

“Nocatee is outselling every community in the entire country due to its amenities, location and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and beaches,” said David Smith, AV Homes’ Florida division president. “We’re honored to be selected to join Nocatee’s prestigious group of homebuilders. We’ve created home designs and pricing that will appeal to move-up buyers and others eager to enjoy the lifestyle of Nocatee and the quality of AV Homes.”

Smith said AV Homes will offer one- and two-story home designs with 1,750 to 2,750 square feet of living space, some with flex rooms and bonus spaces. Six architectural elevations will include Craftsman, French Country, Low Country Tuscan, English Country and Neo-Classical.

AV Homes’ first Nocatee model home will open for viewing in December.

Each of AV Homes’ floor plans is designed to showcase Cypress Trails’ lake and nature preserve views. Buyers also will enjoy proximity to Nocatee’s newest amenity center, Cypress Park, located within the neighborhood. The park is expected to open in spring 2015 and will offer a shallow-entry swimming pool, dog park, residents’ clubhouse, playground and athletic fields.

Additional amenities within Nocatee include the Splash Water Park, family pools, a junior Olympic swimming pool, zip lines, dog parks, playgrounds, nature trails, fitness center and beach trail.
