“Home is where life happens.”

If you’re looking for a close-knit community in the heart of a growing city, Taylor Morrison has your answer.

The Southern Oaks community in Oviedo is just off State Road 434 and is breaking ground on phase 2 of the popular new development. It sits in a top Seminole County school zone and is giving buyers the glitz of new construction with the charm of quality homes in a highly sought-after location.

“We’re giving the quaint and classic lifestyle families are looking for,” says Anna Almirall, Taylor Morrison marketing manager.

From the outside, it’s clear that the homes are breathtaking. Beautiful front entry doors and brick paver driveways give an immediate sense of elegance to the neighborhood. Inside, you’ll find glistening granite, chic fixtures, and luxury bathrooms, including some incredible garden tubs. The soaring high ceilings give an added touch while the oversized walk-in closets will have you ready to move right in.

Taylor Morrison prides itself on giving families the added details to make life easier. The Southern Oaks neighborhood is a gated community that includes two “tot-lot” playgrounds, covered pavilions, and picnic areas. One unique touch to ease mom and dad’s minds are the covered bus stop areas for the kids.

“This has been a huge draw for parents,” says Anna. “You think about sending your kids out into the Florida elements, and it’s a great feature to know they can be protected while waiting to go to school. Wouldn’t we have loved that as kids?!”

Phase 1 of sales started in August 2015, and is moving quickly. Now phase 2 across the street is underway with the opportunity for you to call Southern Oaks home. The neighborhood sits just 2.5 miles from the Winter Springs Town Center and 4 miles from the Oviedo Mall.

No matter where you live in Seminole County, Taylor Morrison says it’s worth it to check out the Oviedo location, which is 45 minutes or less from the Orlando International Airport, theme parks, and most major employers.

“We are getting great feedback from people in the Oviedo community and beyond, families who love the community but were ready for an upgrade,” Anna says. “These new homes are giving them a chance to stay in Oviedo but have the new construction they desire.

Taylor Morrison has six neighborhoods in Seminole County and 21 throughout Central Florida. Homes start in the $400s and single-family homes vary from 2,555 to 5,073 square feet.

Taylor Morrison sales consultants always sit down with buyers to explore every detail their family needs from a gourmet-style kitchen, game rooms, and impressive hobby rooms. Taylor Morrison prides itself on the upgrades

and personalized touches, giving the buyers exactly what they want while guaranteeing value to their new home.

“We go beyond the drywall,” says Anna. “This is a real buyer’s experience. You become a part of the Taylor Morrison family.”

It shows in the foundation, energy-efficient materials, and quality of construction that are the hallmarks of a Taylor Morrison home. The Southern Oaks neighborhood offers six different floor plans. They include four-to-seven bedrooms and tech-ready wiring built right in. The one- and two-story plans can be seen on the Taylor Morrison website, or you can stop by the sales center to get a look at the model homes.

Don’t forget to ask about Taylor Morrison’s one-year warranty. It’s called the “Taylor Morrison Experience” and includes a $1 million termite bond.

“This is where you want to plant your roots,” says Anna. “I live in Oviedo, I raise my kids here, and that shows in what we’re giving buyers. We know that this is one of the most important decisions you make. After all, home is where life happens.”
