VIP guests including future Beacon Lake homeowners, prospective buyers, county officials and area real estate professionals recently attended a Dusty Boots event at the site of the new, northern St. Johns County master-planned community from BBX Capital Real Estate, a division of BBX Capital Corporation.
Beacon Lake’s invitation-only Dusty Boots event gave nearly 200 attendees a peek at the community’s overall progress and showcased builders Dream Finders Homes and Mattamy Homes’ under-construction models. In keeping with Beacon Lake’s lakefront lifestyle and iconic lighthouse entryway, both award-winning national homebuilders offer architecturally unique, coastal-inspired home designs. A model grand opening is scheduled for April, but early buyers can still take advantage of pre-grand opening pricing.
Event guests mingled amid lighthouse themed decor, enjoyed gourmet tapas, and had the opportunity to meet developer and builder’s representatives. Displays, site plans and an animated 3D video presentation provided a preview of the community’s lifestyle amenities and neighborhood features. Event attendees, some of whom have already signed contracts to build homes in Beacon Lake, got a chance to meet future neighbors.
“We were pleased to welcome guests to Beacon Lake and look forward to welcoming many back as new residents in the future,” said Bruce J. Parker, Managing Director for BBX Capital Real Estate. “Beacon Lake is becoming one of the most sought after communities in Northeast Florida. Our signature architectural style, homes with front porches, family-friendly lakefront amenities and multi-purpose paths with ‘stop-a-whiles’ will create a welcoming neighborhood environment every homebuyer will appreciate.”
The 8,200 square foot Lake House Amenity and Fitness Center, anticipated to open in late 2018 will offer residents half-mile views of the southern shoreline of 43 acre, paddle-friendly Beacon Lake. Lake House will include a 3,000 square foot fitness center with cardio, strength training, aerobics, spinning, free weights and yoga studio, a culinary studio and demonstration kitchen, spacious entertainment and dining areas, as well as covered porches and a fire pit for relaxing and socializing. Outdoor amenities include a splash park, Junior Olympic lap pool, a dog park, sand beach, playing fields and tennis courts. The dockside Crew House will provide kayak, canoe and paddleboard storage as well as a launch area, making it easy for residents to enjoy Beacon Lake.
Dream Finders Homes and Mattamy Homes are offering home designs ranging in size from 1,800 square feet to more than 4,000 square feet, and currently priced from the mid-$200,000s - $500,000s. Phase one includes 43 and 63-foot-wide home sites offered by Dream Finders and 53 and 73-foot-wide home sites offered by Mattamy Homes. Model homes are scheduled to open this spring.
Located on the south side of County Road 210 between U.S. Route 1 and Interstate 95, Beacon Lake is near shopping, dining, employment centers and area beaches. The community is within the St. Johns County Public School District, one of the highest ranked school systems in Florida. For more information about Beacon Lake, visit www.BeaconLake.com.
