On Top of the World Communities in Ocala Florida Sets
One Day Only Model Grand Opening for March 21


            For today’s Baby Boomers and active adults who won’t settle for anything less than a spacious home in an amenity-rich, Florida golf course community the One Day Only Model Grand Opening on March 21st at On Top of the World Communities in Ocala is a must-attend event. That Saturday, new home buyers can tour four new designs offering flexible floorplans, luxury features and energy efficiency exceeding Energy StarTM standards. Ocala, Florida, is renowned for its slower paced lifestyle among gently rolling hills, streams and equestrian farms. Now, active adults will find the perfect home to fit their lifestyle needs with floorplans made for entertaining, creating, relaxing and living.

            The newly decorated, fully furnished model homes include gourmet kitchens, guest suites, oversized lanai areas and three-car garages. The high quality fixtures and finishes, and innovative designs with open living areas and volume ceilings must be seen to be appreciated. These luxury estate homes are available on oversized home sites, many with golf or preserve views. What better way to start your day than over coffee on the lanai watching birds, wildlife and foursomes as they play through on the immaculate, Gordon Lewis-designed par 72 Candler Hills Golf Course?

            “This is Ocala’s newest and largest estate home model opening,” notes Dean Luce, vice president of sales and marketing for On Top of the World Communities. “There will be live music, lifestyle demonstrations, food and, of course, the amazing model homes to tour. This Grand Opening of the Stonebridge community will be fantastic, but the celebration is for one day only, so new home buyers looking for an active adult community, with all amenities ready to enjoy now, should make it a priority to come by and choose their perfect home site, before it’s gone.”
