Esplanade at Artisan Lakes Welcomes Homebuyers With Beautiful New Models and Sales Center

(West Florida) – There’s a new community in northern Manatee County that’s giving homebuyers something to get excited about. Esplanade at Artisan Lakes is Taylor Morrison’s newest active lifestyle community and the only one of its kind in the area to offer luxurious resort-caliber amenities, a full-time lifestyle director and an extensive selection of beautiful homes. The community’s new sales office is now open daily, along with six elegantly furnished models. Sales hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Nestled on approximately 800 acres, Esplanade at Artisan Lakes is located in Palmetto off Moccasin Wallow Road, less than a half mile west of I-75.   

            Visitors to Esplanade at Artisan Lakes will be immediately impressed by the grand stonework bridge that graces the entrance, while an abundance of open spaces and pristine lakes create a sense of peaceful retreat from the outside world.  The centerpiece of the neighborhood will be a fabulous amenity center that is destined to be home to a lagoon-style swimming pool with expansive patio, a well-equipped fitness center, two private rooms for spa treatments, a catering kitchen and coffee bar, a library, conference room, parlor and lounge space. Just outside will be a pet park and a beautiful fire pit, where neighbors can gather to visit and socialize. One of the most popular features of the Esplanade brand is the on-site lifestyle director who is on hand to arrange special activities and outings for residents, such as book clubs, parties and wine tastings. Future phases of the community are slated to include a second amenity center with a clubhouse, multiple sports courts and pools, an events lawn, another fire pit, pet park, and more.

            Taylor Morrison is pleased to offer 10 different floor plans in this distinctive community, including single family homes and detached villas with plenty of flexible options. Sizes range from approximately 1,600 to over 3,000 square feet and include two to four bedrooms, two to three and a half baths, and two- or three-car garages. All homes feature tile roofs, paver driveways, thoughtful designer touches and the quality construction and craftsmanship that are inherent in every Taylor Morrison home.

            Now open for visitors is the gorgeous Cararra VII model, which is also home to the sales center. This two-bedroom plan features an open great room with chef-inspired kitchen and sunny breakfast nook. At the front of the home is a guest bedroom with full bath, while the private master retreat is tucked away in the back with an ensuite bath with double vanity and his-and-hers walk-in closets. A cozy den separates the two and could serve as a home office or optional third bedroom.

            Other home designs that have been built as models here include the Lazio VII, Trevi VII, Bella Casa VII, Roma VII and Arezzo VII. All floor plans are also available for viewing online.
