Paradise Homes Opens Two New Model Homes


LAKEWOOD RANCH FLORIDA– Paradise Homes of Sarasota has opened two model homes in Country Club East in Lakewood Ranch – the St. Charles and St. Vincent models. A newcomer to the Lakewood Ranch homebuilding market, introducing its first model home in Country Club East in February 2010, Paradise Homes has quickly become the largest residential builder in Lakewood Ranch on Schroeder-Manatee Ranch (SMR) owned properties, accounting for 25 percent of all SMR sales.

The St. Charles model, located in the Valderrama neighborhood at 15308 Helmsdale Place, sports a bungalow style exterior and includes three bedrooms, two and a half baths, separate study, two-car garage and pool with spa. It lives larger than its 2,123 square feet under air and 2,969 square feet total, with a classic, open design and intelligent space planning. The St. Charles design is priced from $371,076 to $508,822 including homesite (standard lot, pool not included).


The St. Vincent model, located in the Royal Valley neighborhood at 15617 Linn Park Terrace, is inspired by French Country architecture. With 3,425 square feet under air and 5,567 square feet total, the model includes three bedrooms, three baths, separate study, veranda, pool with spa, three-car garage and golf cart garage. The kitchen with butler’s pantry and breakfast nook opens to the gathering room, living room and dining room.

Paradise Homes of Sarasota is a subsidiary of Extreme Remodelers, which owns a dozen dealerships offering high-end home products from major U.S. manufacturers, as well as two showrooms and an interior design division.

For many years a supplier of high-end appliances, cabinetry, granite and other products to the building industry, President and CEO Jim Butler segued into homebuilding in 2004 in south Sarasota County. As his own supplier of high-end products for the home, he is able to pass along the savings, offering luxury homes at more affordable prices.

Paradise Homes is now building in the Country Club, Country Club East and Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch, as well as Casey Key, Siesta Key, Longboat Key and downtown Sarasota.

Paradise Homes has changed the building industry with the introduction of three-tier all-inclusive feature packages featuring Viking appliances and Wood-Mode cabinetry, instead of the a la carte feature pricing that has been standard in the industry. This has been very popular in the new market because homebuyers know exactly what they are getting for the price. The St. Charles and St. Vincent designs are available in all feature packages.

Paradise Homes can be reached at 3750 South Osprey Avenue, Sarasota, Florida 34239. Telephone: (941) 894-3750. Website:
