Mandarin Lakes’ townhomes priced from the $120,000s

Buyers looking for a brand-new townhome for an attractive price should look no further than D.R. Horton’s community of Mandarin Lakes in South Miami-Dade County, says a company spokesperson.

Mandarin Lakes offers three townhome models in a truly unique property, says the spokesperson.

With its green open areas, charming lamppost-lit walkways and lush landscaping, Mandarin Lakes offers the atmosphere and intimacy of an old-fashioned neighborhood built on togetherness and curb appeal.

The community also offers more than100 acres of lakes, a resort-style heated pool, playground, fitness center, party pavilion and Civic Center.

Mandarin Lakes features a superb blend of an old-world feel with modern conveniences and stylish architecture, says the spokesperson.

The three townhome floor plans have two to three bedrooms, optional lofts, two-and-a-half baths and garage. The townhomes feature functional kitchens, relaxing bathrooms, walk-in closets, optional loft areas and paver walkways. Pricing for the townhomes start in the high $120,000s.

For 31 years, D.R. Horton has been building quality homes across America. As one of America’s largest builders, D.R. Horton stands behind every home it builds by offering a 10-year structural warranty, says the spokesperson, adding that when home buyers choose D.R. Horton, they are choosing a builder that continues to grow in every way and has earned the trust and respect of its customers throughout the years. The Southeast Florida division extends from the Palm Beaches to South Miami-Dade, and timing has never been better to purchase a new home at one of the company’s 11 communities.

With the extension of the federal tax credit of up to $8,000 for first-time buyers and $6,500 for repeat buyers who close or escrow on or before April 30, 2010 (or before June 30, 2010 if a binding contract is signed by April 30, 2010), now is the time to visit a D.R. Horton community, says the spokesperson.
