Grand Lakes Estates has desirable location, move-in ready homes



Buyers can move into a new single-family home just in time for the holidays in one of the more sought-after neighborhoods in South Florida. That can be a reality at Lennar Homes’ upscale Grand Lakes Estates, conveniently located near Florida’s Turnpike along the famed Bird Road corridor, says a company spokesperson.

“Grand Lakes Estates offers impressive homes, a family community, and is in one of the area’s best locations,” says Carlos Gonzalez, president of Lennar’s Southeast Florida Division. “Plus we are offering great incentives that won’t last.”

With attractive deals on luxury, move-in ready homes, it will be hard to choose from the five single-home models, featuring four and five bedrooms and two-car garages, ranging up to 3,120 square feet and priced from the high $290,000s, says Gonzalez. Besides the warm home elevation, featuring decorative shutters and gorgeous landscaping, each home offers a distinctive style, adds Gonzalez.

The one-story Monarch model features an inviting covered entrance with an arch-lined foyer that flows into a versatile and spacious great room. The Nautica offers separate living, dining and family room, and two separate bathroom vanities in the children’s bedroom. The Seamist boasts an open family room/kitchen design with separate breakfast room, great for keeping on eye on the kids.

The Newport has a breakfast room with a bay window and a great room with a stunning vaulted ceiling that opens up to the second floor. Finally, the Palmdale not only has an open family room/kitchen design with a walk-in pantry, but also offers a master suite with a separate sitting area that can be ideal for a private reading area, work space or baby nook.

Just as impressive are many top-rated public and private schools, the FIU campus and surrounding parks that make the community ideal for families who want to enjoy living in an intimate enclave within the city, says Gonzalez.

“Over 20 families already call Grand Lakes home,” says Gonzalez, “and more are lining up to get situated in their dream home by the holidays.”

As Lennar’s famed “Everything’s Included” homes, they include standard features and upgrades such as 18-inch ceramic tile in a choice of decorator colors, a Nexia Home Intelligence System and a GE kitchen appliance package.

Grand Lakes’ models are open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call 866-688-7052 or visit the Welcome Home Center at Crystal Lakes, at 6523 SW 162nd Ave. in Miami. To view other Lennar communities, visit FloridaDeals. Realtor participation is welcome.
