D.R. Horton’s buys sites at Fiddler’s Creek
Fiddler’s Creek, a private, master-planned, residential community offering complete resort lifestyle amenities, has sold 91 single-family home sites to the nation’s largest homebuilder.
The South Florida division of D.R. Horton, Inc., America’s Builder plans to initiate construction on the sites soon in the Veneta section of Fiddler’s Creek. The purchase represents the company’s entrance into the community.
“We are delighted to welcome such a well-known and well-respected national homebuilder to Fiddler’s Creek,” said Aubrey J. Ferrao, President and CEO of Fiddler’s Creek, LLC. “The homes to be constructed by D.R. Horton will complement the residential offerings currently available and will provide buyers with a high-quality product in a distinctive neighborhood.”
Veneta is one of the newer sections in Fiddler’s Creek. The entrance to Veneta is showcased by a magnificent fountain which serves as an introduction to the Mediterranean-style neighborhood.
Committed to preserving the environment, Fiddler’s Creek is being planned to accommodate and enhance the natural beauty of Florida’s environment. Less than one-third of the land at Fiddler’s Creek will be developed for residential use, while the remainder is dedicated primarily to nature reserves, lakes, parks, golf courses and recreational areas.
