Imagine living in a gated community with exquisitely landscaped grounds, Mediterranean-style townhomes, a resort-style clubhouse and pool, fitness center, playgrounds, tennis courts, golf putting green, and charming streetscapes with a European flare.
Imagine living in a magnificent home with a gourmet kitchen, designer cabinetry, granite countertops, and spacious bathrooms and bedrooms with walk-in closets. Imagine being just minutes away from major highways and Lake Mary’s best restaurants and shops. And best of all, imagine spending your weekends enjoying your beautiful townhome and the pristine Florida weather, rather than mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, or taking care of home repairs.
This is the lifestyle at Fountain Parke by Ashton Woods.
“We offer the best in resort-style living,” says sales counselor Rich Foutz. “Fountain Parke is a low-maintenance, luxury townhome community right in the heart of Lake Mary.” Many new residents have come to Lake Mary to work for one of the major businesses in the area, such as AAA, Verizon, and Amazon. “We see a lot of different buyers across the board,” says Michael Roche, vice president of sales for Ashton Woods, Florida Division. “We have people with kids, people with no kids, empty nesters. We also get a lot of downsizers who have sold their larger home in places like Heathrow, Magnolia Plantation, and Alaqua. It’s just a really great, diverse group of people.”
The three-story townhomes, with prices starting in the mid-$250,000s, are currently available in three floor plans, ranging from 2,070 square feet to 2,504. Fountain Parke will soon feature three more floor plans, all with elevators. A model home with an elevator will open in May.
Fountain Parke also offers “quick move-in homes” in addition to its semi-custom homes. The sprawling community features nearly 50 buildings, with between three and eight townhomes in each. All townhomes feature a two-car attached garage and three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the top floor. The second floor, or main level, includes an amazing designer kitchen with a large island workspace and an attached dining room, a large living room, a sunroom, a balcony, and a powder room. The ground floor features the entrance to the garage, storage areas, and a “flex room” that can be converted into a fourth bedroom with a full bathroom. The flex room can also be used as an office, a children’s playroom, or a home theater.
All master bathrooms have two-sink vanities and an extra-large shower. All models have utility rooms on the top floor, with room for a full-sized washer and dryer. Two of the models, the Venice and the Messina, have both a balcony on the main floor and a porch on the first floor.
Ashton Woods takes pride in its architectural details and the personalization of each property.
“We believe that every home’s design tells a story,” says Michael. “And at The Studio, our team of experienced design consultants works together with homebuyers to build a home that tells their own unique story and brings their vision of home to life.” The beautiful clubhouse can be rented out for parties and special events. The pool area is simply spectacular. It features a resort-style pool and hot tub, with an adjacent “tot lot” playground and tennis court. The fitness center includes free weights, weight machines, and cardio machines.
“Whether you’re coming from a country club community or a high-end apartment complex, you will enjoy all the resort-style amenities within the neighborhood,” Michael says. “Ashton Woods’ trademark is design, personalization, and possibilities. Just the flow of the community gives Fountain Parke a unique feel. We give a lot of attention to landscaping because we want this to feel like a high-end, luxury resort.”
