With new restaurants and stores constantly opening up in Tampa’s trending downtown area, more and more families want to be near all the amenities that an urban downtown offers.
Unfortunately, many homebuyers are finding that homes in the downtown core don’t fit all their needs.
Many families are solving the challenge by moving to homes near the urban core, where they can find both quick access to downtown and new homes that fit their lifestyle and budget.
Lennar’s Touchstone community fits these requirements and is designed for families of all sizes. Homebuyers can expect a great location for quick trips into downtown, along with the opportunity to live in a brand-new home with an open, flexible floorplan.
Easy access to downtown and MacDill Air Force Base
Touchstone is located near Interstate 75 and the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway, which makes it so easy to get where you need to go. Downtown is just nine miles away, and MacDill Air Force Base is an 18-mile commute.
That quick access will come in handy when your family is looking for things to do in Tampa. Many weekend events and festivals happen along the Tampa Riverwalk and at Curtis Hixon Park, home of the Glazer Children’s Museum and Tampa Museum of Art.
Touchstone is also one of the closest new-home communties to MacDill Air Force Base, which employs thousands of reserve and active duty military in the Tampa Bay area. Lennar’s move-in ready homes can be a quick and easy transition for military families, especially through our preferred lender’s VA loan program.
Area entertainment and shopping fit for the family
Touchstone homebuyers enjoy attractions and great shopping within an easy drive. Ready for entertainment? Try out the TopGolf sports entertainment complex, which blends a vertical driving range with foodie-loving fare. If that’s too tame, take the family on an adventure with iFLY Indoor Skydiving.
Both attractions are near great shopping, including Bass Pro Shops, the Westfield Brandon Mall, Costco and Target. If you’re hungry, head to The Cheesecake Factory, Islamorada Fish Company or the Brass Tap, or any of the dozens of other great restaurant options nearby.
Floorplans are a good value
Besides the great location, Touchstone has been designed to offer the flexibility and affordability families want. You can choose from 15 single-family floorplans ranging from 1,461 to 3,326 square feet.
The community is part of Lennar’s American Dream Series of homes, which are designed with value in mind.
Buyers who want a larger home will appreciate the 5-bedroom, 2,389-square-foot Columbia floorplan that starts in the $240s. This two-story model has an open loft, oversized walk-in closet in the master suite and plenty of storage space.
Don’t need that much room? You may be interested in the 1,528-square-foot Naples II floorplan with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths starting in the $210s.
In addition to single-family homes, Touchstone has a few townhome floorplans to choose from. The floorplans, which range from 1,541 to 1,634 square feet, start in the $170s.
As part of Lennar’s Everything’s Included® program, the Touchstone homes come move-in ready with GE® appliances, LED lighting, and a high-efficiency heating and air conditioning system.
The homes also feature Florida-friendly landscaping and energy-efficient windows.
When your family’s ready to relax and recharge from a busy week, enjoy the community amenities, which include a resort-style pool, clubhouse, fitness center and several parks.
If your family is the weekend wandering type, it’s hard to beat the easy access to downtown, beaches and Historic Ybor City that Touchstone offers. When it comes down to it, Touchstone’s large floorplans could be the winning choice for homebuyers when comparing downtown Tampa homes in their price range.
Touchstone’s model homes recently opened and several quick move-in homes are available at Lennar.com or at the community, located at 4223 Globe Thistle Dr. in Tampa.
