Spacious Lakeland new homes at Highlands Creek IIAre you looking for spacious new homes in south Lakeland? Would you like one that you can personalize to match your individual style? Do you enjoy the security of living in a gated community or the value of space between your home and your neighbor’s?

If you answered yes to any or all of the above, let us introduce you to Highlands Creek II, a sanctuary of new homes located off of Crews Lake Drive in Lakeland’s exclusive Highlands’s area. Surrounded by citrus groves this gated neighborhood features open space throughout the community for a relaxing atmosphere and stunning nature views.

Beautiful Homes

Homes at Highlands Creek II offer 2,034 to 3,315 square feet of living space with four or five bedrooms, two or three baths, a covered lanai, and a two or three-car garage. More than ten home plans are available to choose from with a variety of layouts including open living areas, spacious kitchens and luxurious master retreats, with home prices starting in the $220’s. And, every home is designed and built with desirable features such as ceramic floor tile, 36” staggered kitchen cabinets with crown moulding, and a tiled shower with separate tub in the master suite.

We are excited to announce that our beautiful new model home is now open for you to tour, and we will be celebrating its grand opening in early 2016. Showcasing the Willow II with Loft home plan, this show home boasts 2,956 square feet of living space with five bedrooms, three baths, flex space and a loft, along with a spacious covered lanai and 3-car garage. There’s individual space for everyone in the household to enjoy, and the heart of the home is the fully-open living area where everyone can gather to catch up on their day, or to entertain family and friends.

Upstairs, a 420 square foot loft offers endless versatility. This spacious bonus room can be used as anything from a meditation room to play room, art studio to game room, home office to home theater.

Stacey Antonakos-Perez, Design Center Manager and Highland Homes’ premier model decorator, designed the loft in our model as a hangout destination with a pool table, bar, and home cinema with theater-like recliners.

When you build with Highland Homes, Stacey and the decorators at our Personal Selection Studio will help you to personalize each and every room in your new home to match your vision and needs. From flooring to roofing and everything in between, hundreds of options are available so when you move in, your new home is built exclusively for you and ready to start enjoying.

The Neighborhood

Homeowners at Highlands Creek II enjoy the security of a gated community entrance, along with 80’ wide homesites for privacy and space between homes. Most are large enough to add a backyard pool should you decide to do so (ask us how your pool can be built during your home’s construction!), and many homesites back up to open space for additional privacy and nature views.
