Ellenton, FL, June 17, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Highland Homes adds a 6th county to the list of Central Florida counties they build in. The company, based out of Lakeland, Florida has just purchased South Oak, a Florida new homes community in Manatee County near the Ellenton Outlet Mall. Highland Homes has looked at several communities in Manatee County over the past two years, trying to find just the right area. This area has plenty of water in Manatee County including the Manatee River, Little Manatee River and several water ways leading to the Gulf of Mexico. If you are a boat lover this area is ideal.
There are also several equestrian areas nearby if you are a horse lover. A short drive will give you a nice view of many horse farms with large homes and horses grazing. This area is also known for shopping, with one of the largest outlet malls in Florida.
The Ellenton Outlet Malls (http://www.primeoutlets.com/locations/ellenton.aspx) are open year round and attract tourists and residents who are always trying to get the best deal from the top name brand manufactures and retailers.
And, if you like ice skating or hockey, make sure you visit the Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex behind the mall area. (http://www.ellentonice.com/) The 115,000 square foot "igloo-like" complex is a state-of-the-art facility on the Florida Gulf Coast offering recreational and entertainment activities for all ages. The complex features two NHL size ice rinks, a 13,500 sq/ft indoor soccer/football field, a fitness center, video game room, conference rooms, concessions area, birthday party rooms, Precision Edge Hockey Pro Shop, Ellenton Suds Sports Grill and the recently opened Ice Dreams Arcade "Casino style gaming," 6R Martial Arts and a New Multi-Purpose Room.
Highland Homes plans to have a temporary sales center while the model is being built. The community will have 3 homes ready to purchase while also selling lots for buyers to select the home they want to build with the selections they want. The company has a full design studio where buyers can choose everything from exterior paint color to interior selections that include cabinets, counters, flooring, light fixtures and more. Highland Homes is all about letting the buyer select everything based on their budget and dreams.
Homes start in the low $100's and the company also has programs with down-payment assistance and 100% financing. Highland Homes only requires $99 down, so anyone who is looking to rent can save money by purchasing or building a new home and save.
