LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. (December 22, 2017) – Neal Communities, southwest Florida’s premier, private homebuilder, recently broke ground on two new villa models at Indigo, a gated, resort-style community in Lakewood Ranch.

Expected to be complete in spring 2018, the larger Sandcastle model will feature three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a den. The Tidewinds model will have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a den. Each maintenance-assisted home will also include a two-car garage and covered lanai. Designed with influences from Coastal and British West Indies architectural styles, the villas will include tile roofs and paver drives.

Every homebuyer that purchases a villa from Neal Communities is provided with an included maintenance-assistance package, which includes lawn, trees and shrub maintenance, fertilizer, exterior pest control, repainting of the exterior and eventual roof replacement.

The builder offers villas in seven of its communities, and Indigo will be the eighth community to offer them. The Indigo villas will have their own separate pool and amenities center while also still having access to the clubhouse.

“Indigo is a community within a community,” says Robin Bowman, a new home sales associate for Indigo. “Situated near the center of award-winning Lakewood Ranch, we have a home style to fit very family’s needs. The villas will be a nice addition to the community, feeling every bit like living in a single-family home. They are freestanding homes but with the added benefit of maintenance, making it more easy in terms of living. You can get out more and enjoy life in Lakewood Ranch.”

Opened in May 2015, the neighborhood offers a variety of home designs and floor plans that embrace Island, Spanish, Tuscan and Country French architectural designs. Once completed, Indigo will have a total of 580 maintenance-assisted homes on 151.32 acres. With 14 floor plans to choose from, home designs range from 1,407 to 2,908 square feet. Home prices in the community start at $269,990.

Club Indigo, Indigo’s $1.6 million recreation center, boasts a full-time lifestyle coordinator and features areas for community events, a culinary kitchen, fitness room and movement studio, resort-style pool with cabanas, spa, pickle ball and bocce ball courts.

Residents have access to recreational amenities, including 150 miles of walking and biking trails, nature preserves and parks and gun, polo and cricket clubs. An activities director is on staff and puts together a full calendar of ongoing and special events, from paint parties and presentations to card games and outings. Residents can join the book club and bunco club or gather poolside for wine down Wednesday events.

Located at the intersection of Pope Road and 44th Avenue East, Indigo is surrounded by mature oak trees intentionally preserved by the builder. The community is located in the heart of Lakewood Ranch, near shopping, amenities and A-rated schools.
