Consumer Inspired Model Homes Now Open in Wellen Park's Lakespur Neighborhood

Business

Lakespur, one of Wellen Park’s newest neighborhoods, now has two new model homes by Pulte Homes open to the public. Pulte is offering its signature consumer inspired-homes on 68 sites, with one- and two-story floor plans featuring open-concept designs creating large main living areas and built-in flexibility for families of all sizes. Featuring homesites nestled along lakes, heavily forested preserves and wetlands, Lakespur represents the second neighborhood within Wellen Park for Pulte Homes, one of the nation’s most recognized and trusted brands in homebuilding for over 70 years. IslandWalk, Pulte’s first neighborhood within Wellen Park, was a huge success and inspired Pulte to continue developing in Wellen Park. With the convenience of a future walkable school campus, its emphasis on community connections and outdoor recreation, and proximity to Gulf of Mexico beaches and youth activities, Lakespur is the ideal multigenerational neighborhood.  Lakespur’s resident-only amenities are also designed for all ages, with play areas for children and dogs, event and game lawns, and special fireside destinations. Accented with shiplap siding, timber beams and a metal roof, its coastal-inspired cabana building recalls nearby beaches and offers a party kitchen, restrooms and a variety of under-roof and open-air gathering venues, including an outdoor living room poised to a fireplace and terraces with tables and chairs. Featuring a large lake with a fountain welcoming residents home, Lakespur connects to Wellen Park’s growing network of parks and trails, including the future Oakheart Nature Trail, and is close to Atlanta Braves spring training and family friendly events at CoolToday Park. Also nearby is Downtown Wellen, offering on-site dining, shopping, entertainment and outdoor recreation, including kayaking and fishing the 80-acre Grand Lake, bicycle and e-bike rentals, a nature-inspired playground and splashpad and fountain. Three new schools accommodating 4,400 K-12 grade students are coming soon to Wellen Park. Separated by a nature preserve, Lakespur is within walking distance of Sarasota County Schools’ 2,100-student high school projected to open for the 2025-26 school year and a 1,500-student K-8 school opening a year later on an adjacent property. The College Preparatory Academy at Wellen Park, a K-8 tuition-free charter school, opened in August 2023 to kindergarten through sixth grade and will add seventh and eighth grades in subsequent years for a total enrollment of 800. Located off South River Road, Lakespur’s first phase offers 138 single-family homes from Lennar and Pulte Homes. Additional phases will include both single- and multi-family product types.
