Why do I love living in the Tampa area? Well, there are a lot of reasons actually. When my husband first moved down from Michigan to Florida 15 years ago, he researched schools, developments, surroundings, etc. When I moved down one year later, I looked for friends I could connect with, restaurants, and fun places to shop 🙂

Fifteen years later, all those things are still important to us and that’s why I love living in the Tampa area!

One of my favorite places to go with my family and my friends is Wiregrass in New Tampa! They have the Fresh Market on scheduled Saturdays throughout the year. It is a great place to get fresh fruit, vegetables, baked goods, unique gifts, and so much more. In fact, make sure to check out the booth with the Crawfish Pies….they are AMAZING!

You will also find fun activities at Wiregrass all year long – the holiday celebrations are always our favorite. Who can resist snow in Florida?

I also love that Tampa is so close to all the action that Central Florida has to offer.

And don’t forget SeaWorld and Discovery Cove!

I swear sometimes I feel like we get to live in a resort area…and the kids definitely think that 🙂
Now, I mentioned that the first thing my husband looked at were the communities in North Tampa, and there are some amazing ones to be a part of and grow with your family in.

In fact, Lennar Tampa just had the Grand Opening of K-Bar Ranch. As a Mommy Certified Lennar Blogger, I got some amazing insider pictures to share with you guys…you will see why I love Lennar Homes 🙂

Look at all that living space! That is the K-Bar Ranch Harwich Model, doesn’t that make you want to jump right in and have fun with your family?

I love to spend time in the kitchen, and this beautiful Kitchen in the K-Bar Ranch Eastham Model just inspires me to cook! I can see my kiddos sitting happily on that breakfast bar waiting for their meals 🙂

As you all know, I watch my spending.  My husband and I work very hard for our money – like all of you do – so another thing I love about Lennar Homes is that there are so many things included.  In fact EVERYTHING’S INCLUDED.  All those upgrades that other homebuilders charge you an arm and a leg for COME WITH your Lennar Home.  That’s something I can feel really good about.

Here are the items that you will see in your Everything’s Included Lennar Home:

  • 20 inch tiles in all flooring
  • Navaho white walls
  • LED lighting (higher energy efficiency and longer life)
  • USB plugs in kitchen, owner’s entry and master bedroom
  • Owner’s Entry in single-family homes (essentially a “drop zone”)
  • Spindled staircase
  • Back lanai overhead
  • Childproof plugs
  • All of the EcoSmart features
  • GE stainless steel appliances
  • Nexia home automation
  • And more!

Have questions about your new community?  Well, each Lennar community has a neighborhood Knowologist available in the Welcome Home Center of their community.

The Knowologist knows EVERYTHING about the community. They can provide information about home maintenance, trash pickup days, registering your kids for school, setting up your utilities, etc. They can also tell you where to get the best pizza in town, where the movie theatre is, closest grocery stores, the best routes to avoid traffic, etc.

The Knowologist can even take you in their car for a tour of the area or show you where something specific is.

I know I shared some pictures above of K-Bar Ranch in New Tampa and I thought you guys would like to know of some of the special savings too. During the grand opening Lennar is offering half price homesite premiums at K-Bar Ranch, saving you up to $15,000!

In addition K-Bar Ranch has a lot of amazing features including:

  • Swimming pool
  • Children’s playgrounds
  • Basketball court
  • Gated Entry
  • Zoned for all ‘A’ rated schools
  • Elementary school at the entrance of community
  • Close to the Shops at Wiregrass
  • Included brick paver driveways and front patios
  • All homes have a pond or conservation view

Sounds pretty amazing, huh?

Meadow Pointe in New Tampa also has FREE HOA for a YEAR!  More savings!  If you aren’t in the market for a single-family home, I wanted to point out that Lennar Tampa also has beautiful townhomes with quite a few floorplans to choose from.

All Lennar townhomes are block on block, meaning greater fire safety compared to block on wood, plus much less noise from neighbors and greater privacy for you.
