Tour thoughtfully designed model homes during Wellen Park’s first-ever Model Home Showcase, Feb. 12

VENICE, Fla. (Jan. 9, 2023) – Wellen Park is rolling out the red carpet with self-guided tours of more than a dozen professionally decorated model homes during its inaugural Model Home Showcase Sunday, Feb. 12, from noon to 4 p.m. The models highlight the variety of homebuying opportunities in Wellen Park, the newest neighborhoods, floor plans, and the latest in interior design ideas.

Wellen Park’s first-ever Model Home Showcase features fully furnished one- and two-story homes within walking distance of the soon-to-open Downtown Wellen, the must-visit regional gathering destination for dining, shopping, entertainment and outdoor recreation, as well as CoolToday Park, the spring training home of the World Champion Atlanta Braves.

Guests can register to attend the complimentary event by Friday, Feb. 3, online at

From two-bedroom, two-bathroom attached villas to four-bedroom, three-bathroom single-family homes, the models range in price from $400s to over $1,000,000. After touring the model homes, guests are invited to a sneak peek of Downtown Wellen, where retail and restaurant merchants are preparing to open their doors throughout the spring season. The Model Home Showcase will allow guests to experience the new downtown area before its official opening, while enjoying live musical entertainment, instructor-led fitness classes, cornhole games, a playground immersed in natural play, children’s splashpad, and miles of lakefront trails surrounding the 80-acre Grand Lake. Select food and beverage options will also be available.

“Wellen Park’s model homes speak to the needs and aspirations of our future residents,” said Rick Severance, president of Wellen Park. “The homes also provide a glimpse inside the vibrant lifestyles Wellen Park offers, including bundled golf, low-maintenance homes for lock-and-leave living, private neighborhood resort-style amenities, and an emphasis on walkability, wellness and community connections. Our builders offer homes for everyone – young professionals, families, seasonal and full-time residents, retirees and active adults. Model Home Showcase visitors will be surprised by the many options – and price points – Wellen Park has to offer.”

Nestled along wide landscaped main boulevards, eight neighborhoods offer new construction paired and attached villas and estate, executive and semi-custom homes overlooking lakes, nature preserves and golf courses. Showcase models feature 1,431 to 3,400 square feet of living space, two to four bedrooms, popular open-concept floor plans emphasizing outdoor living, and options for dens, home offices, exercise studios, private retreats, custom pools and spas, full outdoor kitchens, freestanding cabanas and three-car garages.

Architecture and interior design cover the gamut – from coastal, farmhouse, British West Indies and Craftsman elevations and sophisticated updates on transitional, cottage, vintage glam and Florida style with touches of contemporary. Showcase attendees will also see the latest here-to-stay trends, including au courant palettes of blush and champagne plus quartz countertops, wood-look planked porcelain tile flooring, matte black, bronze and brass finishes, and chef kitchens with oversized islands, wall ovens and walk-in pantries.

Mattamy Homes, the largest privately owned homebuilder in North America, showcases four models. Its Renaissance and Sunstone neighborhoods will each feature a paired villa and a single-family home.

National homebuilder Lennar debuts its newest model in Antigua, a recently introduced neighborhood of 177 single-family homes. It also offers two single-family model homes in Wellen Park Golf & Country Club, a bundled golf community of 1,300 estate and executive single-family homes, coach homes, terrace and veranda condominiums.

Sarasota-based builder Sam Rodgers Homes offers two Showcase models – both semi-custom single-family homes in Gran Place, an exclusive enclave of only 42 residences.

In Solstice, a gated community of 270 attached villas and single-family homes, luxury national builder Toll Brothers features two Showcase models representing both home styles.

Showcase model homes by Neal Communities, a private regional home builder, include two single-family homes in Avelina, an intimate neighborhood of only 96 homes, and a twin villa and single-family model in Wysteria, planned for 153 homes.

In addition to the featured Showcase model homes, builders in Wellen Park offer a variety of move-in and quick move-in homes featuring professionally curated design and style options, saving homebuyers considerable time in the building process.

Consistently ranked among the U.S.’s top-selling communities annually by prominent real estate consulting firm RCLCO, Wellen Park currently has approximately 9,500 residents, and at full buildout will have more than 50,000 residents and 22,500 homes.

The community’s brand and vision are rooted in holistic and practical wellness, designed to give residents greater opportunities to connect with one another, take care of themselves and encourage a healthy and active lifestyle, all within an inclusive, genuine community vibe.

Designed as the central gathering and social hub for the region, the first phase of the much-anticipated Downtown Wellen is nearing completion. The pedestrian-friendly downtown emphasizes connections to nature and community and celebrates a waterfront vibe with Grand Lake providing a scenic backdrop and opportunities for fishing and paddle sports. Visitors can enjoy time on the water and along downtown’s 2.8-mile lakefront trail with bicycle, e-bike, kayak and paddleboard rentals at Kind Vibes Outfitters.

Downtown Wellen’s thoughtfully designed spaces create unique outdoor experiences – from intimate parks and an alfresco living room shaded by decades-old relocated live oak trees to larger locales like the Great Lawn for community festivals, markets, celebrations and events and the lakefront fountain and splashpad. Solis Hall, an elegant rental venue, features an outdoor stage, a lakefront patio and an easy flow from inside spaces to neighboring alfresco destinations.
