Featuring the new Summerlyn home plan, the model home at Chestnut Creek boasts 2,320 square feet of living space with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a three-car garage. We expect this home plan to quickly become a homeowner-favorite thanks to its large bedrooms, flexible-use den, and impressive kitchen.

But it all starts with curb appeal – with the Summerlyn, a beautiful Craftsman-style exterior welcomes you home with a front porch that can easily accommodate a bench or swing. As you step inside, the flexible-use den off the foyer provides space for a home office, game room, homework station… the options are endless and can change as your needs do!

The Summerlyn also has a three-car garage, something more and more homeowners desire for the extra storage space, whether you use it for a vehicle, bicycles, outdoor equipment, or whatever your hobby is!

About the Model Home Design

Modern cottage style decor in the new Winter Haven model home

When decorating a new model home in Florida, our professional design team – the same designers who you’ll work with to personalize your dream home – think about who might live there, how they’ll use various rooms, and what furniture and décor they might pick out. In other words, they’re thinking about how your new home will be decorated.

When asked about this new model home in Winter Haven, Stacey Antonakos-Perez, our Design Center Manager and lead model decorator, said, “I love the Summerlyn; I think it is actually my favorite home that we build! The layout is diverse and accommodating to many styles of decor, and people of different ages and style preferences will love to call it home.

For this model home, the team combined a comfortable cottage style with modern black and white, paired with light natural wood and silver accents. The overall finished home is neither too modern or too “shabby chic” but the perfect modern cottage style, with a welcoming, comfortable feel designed for the here-and-now.

Homeowners are going to love the wall space,” says Stacey. “Every room has at least one long wall that you can do so much with from a design standpoint, providing versatility for room layouts, furniture, and shelving or photo walls. Plus, a dedicated laundry room and a drop zone at the garage entry work together to help keep clutter out of your main living area.”

Speaking of, Stacey’s favorite part of the Summerlyn is the…

Open Living Area and Kitchen

The kitchen has been called "the heart of a home” and in the Summerlyn, it truly served this idiom. Situated in the center of the home, the oversized kitchen features an abundance of upper cabinets and counter space, and a large counter-height island between the cook space and gathering room that can accommodate up to six barstools, making this the hub where life is lived and laughter shared.

Speaking of gathering, a spacious gathering room completes the open living area.

“The gathering room can be set up many different ways thanks to having wall space on three sides of the room,” Stacey says.

In addition, the gathering room offers direct access to outdoor living space on the Summerlyn’s spacious covered lanai, which is an ideal size for a seating and grilling area.

Cozy Up Inside Your New Bedroom

Back inside, the Summerlyn hosts four bedrooms including your spacious owner’s suite. Not only does your suite accommodate a sumptuous king-sized bed with nightstands, a dresser, and bench at the foot of the bed, but in the model, the designers chose to add an electric fireplace and comfy chairs, creating the perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine or cup of tea. And, your suite is completed by a large en-suite bath, linen closet, and walk-in wardrobe.

A desirable split plan layout provides privacy to the owner’s suite as the secondary bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home. These bedrooms are large in dimension, too, and can accommodate additional uses thanks to their size.

“In each bedroom, I added an extra little feature such as a bookcase or shelves because the rooms are larger,” said Stacey. “This means they have space not only for bedroom furniture but additional décor or storage, or even activity space such as a computer desk or game table.”
