Seven furnished villa and single-family model homes open in Brightmore at Wellen Park

VENICE, Fla. (Jan. 22, 2024) – Mattamy Homes debuts Wellen Park’s vibrant new lifestyle for active adults with the Saturday, Jan. 27, grand opening of seven inspiring, fully furnished model homes in Brightmore. The public is invited to attend the grand opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to tour models, enjoy refreshments and more. The models include paired villas and single-family homes nestled along cul-de-sac streets, lakes and wetland preserves.

“We are very excited to bring this unique lifestyle community that is like no other to Wellen Park,” said Bob Meyn, president for Mattamy Homes’ Tampa and Southwest Florida division. “When completed, the amenities will be a place where our residents can stay and play all day, as there will be so much to enjoy.”

Wellen Park’s first community for 55+ active adults, Brightmore offers both paired villas and single-family homes with future robust resort-style amenities catering to lively and leisurely pastimes. The professionally decorated models represent Mattamy Homes’ 12 unique and inspired home designs, which feature coastal, transitional and craftsman exterior architecture and open-concept floor plans with large, light-filled main gathering spaces and lanais for outdoor living. Homes also have versatile flex rooms for dens, home offices or hobby rooms.

Two furnished models illustrate Mattamy Homes’ trio of paired villa designs, including the largest – the 1,754 square foot Champagne. The two-bedroom, two-bath villa homes in Brightmore also have two-car garages, abundant storage and are right-sized starting at 1,411 square feet.

Also complete are five single-family model homes with two and three bedrooms and 1,687 to 2,478 square feet. Several homes feature 12-foot multi-sliding glass doors elevating the indoor-outdoor connection. The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath Sapphire has a wrap-around porch, 2,385 square feet and a tucked-away morning kitchen/coffee bar that pulls double duty as a butler’s pantry perfect for entertaining.

All homes in Brightmore feature quartz countertops, kitchen pantries, center islands and stainless steel ranges, microwaves and dishwashers. Well-appointed owner’s suites have walk-in closets and private bathrooms with two sinks and glass showers. Homes are built with impact-resistant windows and include smart-home tech packages and paver driveways and lanais.

At the heart of Brightmore’s robust experiential lifestyle are the future clubhouse and campus-inspired amenities featuring distinctive architecture and favorite gathering destinations for time with friends and family. The 21,000-square-foot clubhouse will offer a social hall, clubroom, cafe and bar, fitness center and group fitness studio. Engaging activities, entertaining events and programs will also enhance social opportunities and camaraderie with new friends and neighbors. A full-time lifestyle director is busy planning a year-round calendar of events, clubs and classes for residents to enjoy as soon as they move in.

Residents will enjoy two pools – a 2,800-square-foot lap pool and a 3,700-square-foot resort-style pool with sun shelf and spa and a sloping beach entry. The resort experience will include abundant gathering areas, outdoor amenities including a sandy beach, shade cabanas with loungers and multiple firepit destinations.

Brightmore’s 11-acre amenity campus will also have eight pickleball courts with a ninth stadium court, plus a yoga lawn, dining area and separate paw parks for large and small dogs.

The neighborhood’s land bridge at its gated entry along West Villages Parkway is designed as an interactive green space with landscaping and a tiered fountain.

Brightmore’s three paired villa and nine single-family home designs start in the low $400,000s.

Mattamy Homes offers homes that can be built and personalized, and also quick move-in homes that feature professionally curated design and style options, saving homebuyers considerable time in the building process with select homes ready now. 

Located in the heart of Wellen Park’s Playmore District, Brightmore is adjacent to CoolToday Park, the spring training stadium for the Atlanta Braves, and close to Downtown Wellen, the region’s new destination for outdoor recreation, local shopping, dining, events and entertainment.

 The stadium offers even more opportunities for fun with trivia nights, live music and popular annual events like the Grilled Cheese Festival, Braves Tomahawk 5K and two-day holiday Jingle Jam. The stadium’s tiki bar is open year-round and tuned in to the home team throughout the summer.
