Thumbs Up for Foxchase

February 4th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Foxchase in Clermont

This week I’ve been showing homes in Clermont to Tom and Jean from Illinois. They’re die hard fisherman, and can’t wait to move to Central Florida.

We came across a new community in our search yesterday that I thought was worth mentioning. It’s called Foxchase and the builder is Standard Pacific Homes. It’s conveniently located off Highway 27 on Hammock Ridge Road. They offer a Tuscan, Cottage, or Mediterranean elevation for each of their 11 floor plans and prices start just below $200,000 and can go up to $300,000.

The average price is in the low to mid $200’s and they have quite a few completed inventory homes available for immediate delivery. I was happily surprised at the choice of well thought out plans and the amount of upgrades available.

The lots overlooking the Legends golf course were especially striking. There’s an inventory home overlooking the golf course for under $300,000. You get an awful nice view with a new home for a pretty reasonable price. Only in this market.

For buyers looking in the Clermont area, Foxchase is definitely worth a look. The homes are nice and the location is convenient.

The only downside that I saw was that you can only get St. Augustine sod in the front yard. The city of Clermont restricts sprinklers to the front yard for new construction. All new homes here have this issue and to be honest, it’s kind of a bummer. The city’s been complaining about how their property tax revenue has been declining, but they put this retarded restriction on new construction that worsens that problem.

Anyway, da Scoop gives a thumbs up for Foxchase.

    Does anyone know if Foxchase has the Chinese Drywall? Many other Standard Pacific communities do.

    Please let me know at http://toxicdrywall.blogspot.com Thanks!

    I would contact an attorney to find out if Standard Pacific has problems with Chinese drywall. Other than that, The US Consumer Product Safety Commission site is probably your best bet.
