Find the Perfect Home at the Right Price in Madeira
MADEIRA, ST. AUGUSTINE, FL –
Premier location, unbelievable homesites and distinct homes are making Madeira the most talked about community in St. Augustine. Since its recent opening, the community has become a favorite in the area for prospective homebuyers.
Madeira offers residents a combination of luxury and beauty in a perfect location in the historic city. Home to the same majestic landscape that awed explorers when they first discovered St. Augustine, many people are interested in the ideal location of the community as well as the opportunity to live in such a beautiful area.
The new community is home to premium homesites and unparalleled natural beauty. The property encompasses 1,006 acres including over 600 acres of unspoiled marsh wetlands, a tidal creek, numerous lakes and preserved natural areas laced with ancient live oaks and blossoming magnolias. Stokes Land Group, one of the oldest and most respected developers in the Southeast, is taking great strides to preserve much of the natural beauty.
“Madeira is a unique community in St. Augustine which offers its residents spacious homesites surrounded by natural beauty, the privacy of a gated community yet the convenience of being located just minutes away from beautiful beaches, as well as shopping and entertainment in and around the historical city,” said Sally Hall, project developer, Stokes Land Group.
Madeira’s plans for the future will include an 8,700-square-foot amenity center, certain to be the focal point of the community, as well as additional single-family lots, townhomes and condominium units.
Arthur Rutenberg Homes is the first premier builder for the community. The luxury homebuilder just recently completed their first two model homes, the Seabrook and the Tradewinds. The fully decorated models are currently open for viewing with a grand opening planned later this spring. Rutenberg has already taken deposits and traffic has been steadily increasing as prospects become aware of the terrific home values being offered.
The Seabrook, which features 2,250 square feet of living space in a one-story design, offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The spacious foyer immediately leads visitors to the dining area, with an open wall overlooking the great room and kitchen. A cozy den, with three large windows overlooking the front lawn, provides a relaxing retreat after a tiring day.
The design features an open great room and kitchen, creating the perfect space for entertaining. The kitchen, with spacious counters, also boasts a center island with breakfast bar. For those quick family meals, the morning room off the kitchen is the ideal location with windows overlooking the covered lanai. A bonus room with four expansive windows offers stunning rear vistas, as well as an optional fireplace. The master suite exudes luxury from all corners. The connected master bathroom features double raised vanity sinks, glass-enclosed shower and garden tub. A spacious walk-in closet completes the design.
The slightly larger Tradewinds model features four bedrooms and three bathrooms. With 3,000 square feet of living space, the home provides ample space for the growing family. From the foyer, the formal dining and living rooms provide a welcoming entrance with beautiful high-volume ceilings. A den provides a quick get-away to read the paper, enjoy the evening news or engross in a novel. The living room, which overlooks the expansive covered lanai, leads into the kitchen and morning area. The kitchen boasts a beautiful center island with a curved countertop, spacious pantry and ample cabinet space. A leisure room in the back of the home provides access to the lanai and backyard. The three bedrooms can easily be adapted into office space, libraries, children’s retreats or guest rooms.
The master suite, featuring a tray ceiling, is brightly lit with numerous windows overlooking the backyard and side yard of the home. Dual walk-in closets provide more than enough space for even the largest wardrobes. The master bathroom showcases a magnificent garden tub and glass-enclosed shower, as well as his and her vanity sinks.
Both of the models demonstrate Arthur Rutenberg Homes’ “fully loaded pricing.” Each model will showcase a level of features that are automatically included in the base price of the home, reducing the confusion about which upgrades are part of the design. Typical luxury feature upgrades included in the price of the home are tile roofs, paver driveways, recessed ceilings, front impact windows, GE Profile stainless steel appliances including refrigerator, granite countertops in kitchen and master bath plus washer and dryer included.
In addition to the luxury add-ons, Arthur Rutenberg Homes include many Energy Star features, including 14-SEER HVAC systems, foil-backed roof decking, low “E” windows, tankless gas water heaters and Energy Star-rated GE appliances.
The new models will showcase the designs that set Arthur Rutenberg Homes apart from other area builders. As in all Arthur Rutenberg Homes, both models at Madeira feature the highly popular Arthur Rutenberg trademark disappearing walls. The entire back wall of the home is composed of sliding glass doors, providing unbelievable vistas of Madeira. The sliding glass doors disappear when opened, bringing the beautiful Florida weather indoors and enjoying the natural beauty of the area without stepping outside. Its accents like these that set Arthur Rutenberg Homes apart from the competition.
