Minto introduces two new single-family floorplans at Westlake to give home buyers a lower cost option

CITY OF WESTLAKE, FL — (May 23, 2023) — Minto Communities USA, the master developer and primary builder in Westlake, is introducing two smaller floorplans that will give home buyers on a budget a lower cost option for a single-family home. Both plans will be released for sale on June 3rd.

At 1,644 square feet under air, the single-story Cassia offers two bedrooms/two baths, with a den, a covered lanai, and a two-car garage. The Cassia has an oversized kitchen, convenient laundry room and option to convert the den to a third bedroom. The base price is $435,990.

The Aster is slightly larger at 1,699 square feet of A/C living space and offers two-bedrooms/two baths, den, two-car garage and covered lanai. It boasts a spacious kitchen and breakfast nook, dual walk-in closets and optional wet bar in the den. The base price is $440,990.

Prior to these new additions, the least expensive floorplan for a new Minto single-family home at Westlake was just under $468,000.

“With today’s economic conditions, we’ve seen an uptick in demand for smaller single-family homes at lower price points,” said Steve Svopa, Southeast division president of Minto Communities USA. “We decided to offer these two new floorplans to ensure our home buyers have a wide and diverse range of home options to select from.”

All Westlake residents have access to the robust and expansive amenities campus known as the Westlake Adventure Park. Earlier this year, Minto completed the final phase of construction on the $22 million park which now includes four full-length, lighted basketball courts, a multipurpose building call The Lodge with an adjoining outdoor lawn, and an adults-only lap pool. These new amenities are in addition to the resort-style lagoon pool with tower slide, splash pad, poolside concessions, covered concert pavilion, picnic area, BMX pump park, playground, food truck court, dog park and more.

Westlake is approved for 4,500 homes and more than 2 million square feet of commercial space. Minto offers a mix of single-family homes, estate homes and townhomes for sale.
