Many of the most famous homes in Lakewood Ranch and in Arthur Rutenberg Homes legendary Design Collection we have built have been our models like the Tuscany II, the Rhapsody, The St Augustine VII, the Biscayne III and most notably the Bellagio II.  If you have been a fan of Arthur Rutenberg Homes for any length of time you have seen the St Augusitne VI models’ picture in all of our collaterals.  We continue the trend with our 2012 Model of the Year Bermuda 1129B model in Camargo in Country Club East and our beautiful Bardmoor 1172B model in Secret Harbor. Today, Nelson Homes, Inc. is pleased to be one of the feature builders in County Club East at Lakewood Ranch and now the Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch.  There are currently six neighborhoods that we build in and six Country Club East including Camargo, Royal Valley, Secret Harbor, Hazeltine, Leopard Creek and Valderrama.  In Lake Club, we are working towards opening our beautiful new Marbella plan in the Vineyards section.

It Is All By Design…

  Check Out Our Update Bermuda Model Arthur Rutenberg Homes 2012 Model of the Year! Our new Bermuda model opened on May 13, 2011 and immediately turned a lot of heads here in Lakewood Ranch! An all new floor plan, the Bermuda combined many of the features that our buyers – You to be exact – were telling us you wanted. In fact the early response was so great that most of our neighbors found their way in with their design staffs in tow.  If it sounds like we are used to that, you are correct and yes we enjoy setting and raising the bar with each new Arthur Rutenberg Homes floor plan. How we got here is an interesting tale.  I spent many years in ever larger and more famous model homes including the Rhapsody, St Augustine VII, the Biscayne III and arguably the most famous the Bellagio II.  As with all trends tastes in size and finish change and my first model here in Country Club East was the Cancun 1055.  It is a fantastic plan that I would not mind living in myself, but being just 1,977 S.F., it was not the type of model home the people in Sarasota, Bradenton and especially Lakewood Ranch were used to seeing Arthur Rutenberg Homes show. One of our greatest strengths; in my opinion, is our ability to listen to what our customers want and then to actually make it a reality.  So we started listening and keeping track of what you told us when you canme through our Cancun.  When planning for the yet un-named Bermuda started; we shared about a dozen ideas with our Builder Derek Nelson, who was very open to what we were proposing.  Some of the ideas we just knew we would not see, but nothing ventured, nothing gained right? We heard you did not want a Dining Room, a full nine out ten told us that and there was more:  No walking in the front door and seeing an open bathroom door.  You wanted bedrooms that open into hallways not spill right into the common living areas.  You had other ideas as well – a big Kitchen, extra storage, no bathtub in Master Bath, a separate non-walk through Utility Room, did I say ta BIG Kitchen and still more…Derek, who was really the true driving force behind the Bermuda took our notes and made his pitch to the design specialists, adding his own ideas to the plan to keep it at a great price, make sure it works on our lots and in our community.  The designers took over and with valuable input from everyone from Derek to interior design to Art Rutenberg himself and some back and forth wrestling with ideas we got this drawing: […]
