This is an MTV Cribs episode featuring the humble abode of an obscure music group called O-Town who was managed by the recently imprisoned con man Lou Pearlman. The formation of the band was chronicled on the reality show Making the Band which aired on ABC. I admit I watched a few episodes simply because it was filmed right here in Dr. Phillips. OK, I admit I watch American Idol too. The release of their debut album entitled Liquid Dreams in 2001 was a total flop and they just faded away for all I know.
Being a real estate geek, I can tell you that the home in this video was built by ABD Development in the Bay Harbour section of the Phillips Landing subdivision and the name of the model is the Courtyard IV. It features 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a recreation room, 3,862 square feet, and I love the dramatic mood of this plan as well as the detached guest suite which is not shown on the video.
If you like this home with the pool as a centerpiece, ABD Development has also built the same floor plan in Vizcaya, Providence, Reserve at Belmere, Vista Royale, and Stoneybrook.
Having seen quite a few of these Courtyards, I suggest having the deck area around the pool to be made of brick pavers instead of the concrete decking like the one on this video and ABD offers an option with statues of lions spraying water out its mouth at the far end of pool that is striking. You can still build this home at Providence in Davenport. Here’s a few photos of a Courtyard with just slightly better furnishings and the floor plan below.
