Centex Homes will soon be breaking ground on its newest model home in Starling at FishHawk Ranch. Centex expects the home to be completed in August and will join 10 other builders currently selling in the sprawling community.

The model, the Trentino, offers 2,426 sq. feet of living space and features four spacious bedrooms, two baths, formal living and dining areas and screened lanai. Other models offered in Starling will include the Monterey, Rutherford, Windsor, Bellevue, Sierra and Montelena.

Home plans range between 1,928 and 3,289 sq. feet Prices start at $219,900, including a standard homesite.

FishHawk Ranch Marketing Manager Dawn Turner said Centex was looking for another community to build in, and it was looking for another builder. “Their national brand is strong, and we felt it would be a good complement to the builders already selling in FishHawk Ranch,” she said.

Centex New Home Sales Consultant Amanda Stallings says deciding to build in FishHawk Ranch wasn’t a difficult decision. “FishHawk was rated the No. 1 community two years in a row by Tampa Bay Builder’s Association and also has a reputation as a community that offers beautiful homes and endless amenities,” she said.

Amenities already in place in Starling include a tot playground and trail system, which will eventually connect to the Alafia River. Other planned amenities include a tennis center with five clay courts and the Starling Club, a clubhouse with a pool, fitness center and a rentable meeting space.

Children living in Starling will attend the newly-constructed Stowers Elementary and Barrington Middle as well as Newsome High School.

Stallings says Centex is currently offering pre-construction specials, including the first $10,000 in upgrades at no charge and up to $10,000 in closing cost assistance when customers use their preferred lender, CTX Mortgage.

Centex’s model will be open Monday and Tuesday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Wednesday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m., Thursday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
