Single-family rental homes now available in Stillwell at Wellen Park

VENICE, Fla. (Jan. 25, 2024) – Stillwell at Wellen Park, a built-to-rent single-family home community in Wellen Park, has welcomed its first residents, with construction now complete on the inaugural phase. The 28-acre community offers four home designs featuring one to three bedrooms, private fenced-in backyards, and 712 to 1,275 square feet in one- and two-story floor plans.

“There’s been a lot of interest in Stillwell,” said Rick Severance, president of Wellen Park. “It’s ideal for people who want the flexibility and privacy of a single-family home without the responsibilities of ownership.”

Developed by Ohio-based Coastal Ridge Real Estate and equity partner Halstatt Real Estate Partners of Naples, Stillwell models the growing national trend of build-to-rent properties. The community will have 274 homes and offers rentable garages and on-site amenities.

“Stillwell has been carefully crafted and developed to provide the privacy and outdoor space that comes with homeownership, without committing to a mortgage or maintenance,” said Andy Lallathin, managing partner at Coastal Ridge. “It’s what we consider ‘sanctuary without strings.’”

Homes in Stillwell feature smart-home technology, open-concept floor plans blending living rooms and kitchens, and modern finishes including quartz countertops, tile backsplashes, and luxury wood-style plank flooring. Kitchens feature islands and stainless-steel Energy Star appliances.

Stillwell’s resort-inspired amenities focus on health, wellness and community. At the heart of its active social lifestyle, the 5,000-square-foot clubhouse features fitness and business centers, a club lounge, community kitchen, game room, coffee and juice bar, and on-site property management. Outdoor amenities include a zero-entry pool, an event lawn, bocce court, firepits and grills with seating areas. Stillwell also offers parks, open spaces, a walking track and a dog park throughout its 28 acres.

Located in the Playmore District, Stillwell Wellen Park is close to Downtown Wellen and CoolToday Park which hosts Atlanta Braves spring training and year-round events. It’s also convenient to U.S. 41/Tamiami Trail and Wellen Park’s extensive network of trails and parks.
