There are just three homes there now, but many more are expected to rise from the ground this year as homebuilder and developer Taylor Morrison opens the newest neighborhood in West Orange County’s Horizon West area.
The Cove at Hamlin is situated along Hamlin Groves Trail just east of the State Road 429 intersection with New Independence Parkway in south Winter Garden. It is 15 minutes from downtown Winter Garden.
Upon build-out, this neighborhood will have 250 homes in the mid-$200s, with floor plans ranging from 1,900 to 4,900 square feet. Also featured are 165 homes built in the urban cottage style and including detached rear garages connected by a covered breezeway.
Taylor Morrison held a grand opening last weekend to introduce the three cottage plans.
“Saturday was a success,” said Kristin Vuckovic, marketing manager. “About 100 people attended the two-hour event, and several of them have come back already to take another look.”
And a variety of guests came through, she said, adding that these homes are perfect for all age groups, from newlywed couples to retirees to families.
The 1,938-square-foot Hancock home has two bedrooms, two-and-one-half baths, a large granite kitchen island with an abundance of kitchen cabinets and separate eating space. There is a two-story family room and home office.
The Sheen has three bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths in 2,228 square feet. It includes a guest suite off the main entrance and a two-story granite kitchen; the second floor features a split plan and sitting room.
The 2,444-square-foot Butler cottage includes three bedrooms and two-and-one-baths with a home office, formal dining room, open granite kitchen and two-story family room.
All include an upstairs laundry room and master suites with large walk-in closets and two-sink master bath.
The community will offer family-friendly amenities such as a clubhouse, pool, splash pad and waterfront amphitheater.
