The Estates at Sweetwater Country Club

For the first time in decades, Ashton Woods Homes is giving buyers the opportunity to purchase luxury townhomes in the original, 18-hole golf course community of Sweetwater. 

“It’s the only new construction in the area,” says Rich Foutz, community sales manager for Ashton Woods, who is a five-year veteran with the Atlanta-based home builder. “This is the one opportunity to get something new in Sweetwater.”

The land became available when the leadership at the Sweetwater Golf & Country Club opted to build a new clubhouse and move the existing driving range. When complete, the new clubhouse will feature a pool along with other amenities, which townhome residents will be able to enjoy. 

A private, gated community with stylish Mediterranean-inspired architecture, paver driveways, and barrel-tile roofs, the Estates at Sweetwater Country Club will offer two elegant townhome models from which to choose, the Murano and the Dario. The small, picturesque neighborhood that sits directly across the street from Wekiwa Springs State Park will consist of 72 townhomes. 

“There has been nothing new in this area in quite some time,” adds Kristin Vuckovic, Ashton Woods marketing manager. “Now, people who want to move into this golf course community or those wishing to stay in Sweetwater and buy new can do so.”

Whether it’s the Murano or the Dario, the spacious townhomes both feature attached two-car garages, three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. All bedrooms are located on the second floor, as is the laundry room, a clever and convenient placement. Open kitchens and living areas on the ground floor create generous space for the entire family – also ideal for entertaining.

“They really live like a single-family home,” explains Kristin. 

Even better, you can actually live a low-maintenance lifestyle. Coupled with easy access to the par-72 golf course, the community offers a carefree standard of living, which includes lawn care.

Both townhome models have similar floorplans, the difference being the Dario model is the end unit, while the Murano model is the interior unit. Extra windows in the Dario model convey more natural light. The Murano model, meanwhile, feels a bit more open, thanks to extra square footage, even at a lower price. The Murano, which starts at $302,990, boasts 2,161 square feet; the Dario offers 2,105 square feet, starting at $304,990. The Murano also comes with an inviting bonus sitting area in the master bedroom, valuable flex space that could be transformed into an office or nursery. 

“They are laid out differently,” notes Rich, “but both models offer open floor plans and are popular with buyers.”

For safety – and to avoid inclement weather – homeowners have the option of entering their homes through the two-car attached garage. The Murano also has a front-door entrance; the Dario, a side entrance. Both exterior front doors come standard with large inlaid glass for more natural light. Gourmet kitchens feature oversized islands and are equipped with warrantied Whirlpool ranges, microwaves, and dishwashers as well as designer Wellborn cabinetry and granite countertops with matching backsplash. Window blinds are also included for every window. 

Jack and Jill bathrooms are standard in both models, with separate vanities available in the Dario. All bathrooms are adorned with 42-inch mirrors and Moen chrome faucets. The master bath includes spacious walk-in showers, and the oversized master bedroom walk-in closet is impressive. Striking 17-inch ceramic tile highlights the bathrooms, foyer, and kitchen floors.
All back patios come standard with privacy fencing and hedges to separate the units from one another. 

“There are so many things that come standard with these models, you don’t have to put many options in,” says Rich, who adds that homeowners’ association fees include social membership to the golf club.

As with any Ashton Woods offering, however, the Murano and the Dario can be personalized. A visit to the builder’s Design Studio allows buyers to choose from an array of upgrades, including flooring, cabinetry, countertops, rain showers, screened lanais, open stair rails, and more. 

“We can create a home that’s a true reflection of your style,” says Kristin.

Can’t wait to move in? At the Estates at Sweetwater Country Club, inventory-ready townhomes in both models can be yours today.
