Meet Marion Ridge’s Happy Homeowners

“Even if I wasn’t building for Landsea, the Wilshire floor plan would be at the top of our list. It’s very functional for our family needs.”

Landsea Homes team member Matthew finds himself on the other side of the welcome mat in his new home at Marion Ridge, alongside his wife Rachel. The happy homeowners found their perfect fit with the Wilshire plan—boasting striking designs, plush interiors and all the space they could dream of.

“I like the openness. I really like where you have the kitchen and the dining room and the family room all kind of open.”

A big fan of his new home’s breezy layout, Matthew mentions how selecting a home with enough space was at the top of his list. Spread across an impressive 3,198 square feet, Wilshire’s five-bedroom, three-bathroom floor plan also features an inviting living room off the entry and a first-floor guest room with an en suite bathroom—perfect for when the couple’s in-laws come to town. Upstairs, all remaining bedrooms as well as a game room and second family room come together to create an inviting retreat.

“I like the High Performance Homes options. I like the smart switches.”

As a builder for Landsea, Matthew is familiar with the smart technology included in every Marion Ridge residence. But now, he gets to experience all the benefits of a High Performance build for himself. The eco-centric, future-focused design makes Matthew and Rachel’s lives easier—saving them money, time and energy.

“We like the fact that it’s still close to stores, but it’s a little more secluded.”

Nestled in the natural life and peaceful pace of Polk County with easy access to major interstates, Marion Ridge’s prime Haines City location means Matthew and Rachel can enjoy an undisturbed setting—with all the perks of bity-city living just minutes away. Surrounded by lakes and wildlife preserves with outdoor recreation, entertainment, retail and dining experiences close by, this single-family home community adds everyday excitement to the couple’s agenda. And when they feel like staying close to home? An open-space lanai and cozy fire pit out back offer spaces crafted for kicking back, while on-site amenities within the community provide picnic-perfect places for a relaxed afternoon in the sun.

“I really love my employment here. And it’s not just because the company treats me well. It’s that they allow me to build a quality product.”

From builder to buyer, Matthew brings a unique perspective to his and Rachel’s new home at Marion Ridge. And this is just the beginning of their story.
