“Being military, we moved here from Germany a couple years ago. We didn’t know the area very well so we rented a home off the internet and loved the area, so we were trying to find something over the past two years that we felt was worth the money we were going to pay,” Amber said.
After one of Tom’s sailors suggested they check out The Village of Escaya masterplan, they toured a few models from other homebuilders but then found their dream choice in a new Lennar home.
“And so we came over one day and met Sam with Lennar, she showed us around and then showed us this house and I fell in love with it,” said Amber.
“They initially showed us some of the other homes in the neighborhood, we knew our timeline was pretty tight if we were going to make the move, and when we did see this one we loved it – loved it, loved it,” Tom agreed.
From the cute cottage exterior-style, to the brand-new finishes and the interior floorplan – they knew instantly that this was the perfect home for them and their daughter to settle in. With four bedrooms, they could have a space for their two older children when they come home to visit. And their daughter, who’s finishing her senior year in high school, would have the perfect bedroom downstairs.
“We’ve moved around a ton, it’s always hard on military kids,” Amber said. “She loves it. To her the house is worth it. So I think that’s a lot. That’s huge.”
Amber loves the expansive kitchen. They both love the open-concept layout. Located just a hundred or so yards away from the recreation center, they say their daughter is there every night using the fitness center facilities.
“The huge kitchen you can entertain in, you feel like you can all be a part of it,” said Amber. “That was probably my huge seller, until we went upstairs and saw the master bathroom – the bathtub is huge and the shower you can fit a football team in.”
But the home wasn’t the only thing they loved – but also the easiness they encountered during the homebuying process.
“I will also say that Lennar has been really good – they were really quick about coming over for anything,” said Tom.
“This is the fourth or fifth home we’ve bought and no kidding, Lennar is the easiest,” Amber said.
But that’s not where their family’s journey ended. A few weeks after settling into their home, family came in from out of town to visit. So, they showed them around the neighborhood.
“The whole family came in and while they were coming and going around to all the model homes, they not only fell in love with ours they fell in love with the neighborhood,” Tom said. “My nephew who is also getting stationed here, they were adamant about living in the area.”
And so – their nephew bought another home in the community, located up on the same street of their own.
“We actually have two other friends in the area looking so we do, we try to promote it, we love living here.” Amber added. “I love the size of the community. I’m a big walker, I go out walking and I can get as many steps in as I did in my older one,” said Amber.
“And the value for the money – is awesome,” Tom said.
