Finding Luxury Modern Homes in Tampa Bay?
When most people think of modern homes in Florida they think of Miami.
Especially those moving from California or New York to Florida, Miami tends to be the hotspot.
However, one city that is becoming increasingly popular is Tampa, Florida.
And for good reason. After last year's Superbowl win with Tom Brady, the Lightning winning the Stanley Cup, and the Rays almost winning the World Series, a spotlight is shining on Tampa Bay right now.
Here's 10 reason why people relocating to Florida are choosing Tampa Bay.
Introducing Tampa Bay's Luxury Modern Home Builder
Finding modern homes in Tampa Bay is not as easy as Miami.
There are few fewer modern home builders, and much less than match the quality of the home you expect from a luxury home builder.
I wanted to introduce you to Arjen Homes, a luxury home builder in Tampa Bay who exclusively builds luxury modern homes.
You'll find their homes on Selling Sunset's newest Netflix show, Selling Tampa Bay.
Find out why Arjen Homes is becoming known as Tampa Bay's luxury modern home builder.
Developer of the Modern Home Compound in Tampa
After everything that happened in 2020, our home became more than just a place where we live.
It became the place we needed to do everything. Live. Eat. Play. Work. Study. Relax. And more.
Our home was redefined and what we needed had to be reimagined.
That's why Arjen Homes decided to revolutionize what you expect from a luxury modern home and they started building Modern Home Compounds...
What's The Difference Between Spec vs. Custom Home Builders?
Spec homes are one of the less known types of new construction homes.
While most may associate custom homes with higher quality, many of the most luxurious homes in California are built spec.
Even the most expensive house in the United States, "The One" in Belair was built spec.
Spec does not mean a difference in quality. It's a different style of building that doesn't require all the time, effort, and energy required by you that building a custom home needs.
In this video, the owner & CEO of Arjen Homes explains the difference.
The First of Many to Come in Tampa:
Their luxury modern home at 3116 West Napoleon Avenue, also known as, Monte Carlo was sold in 2021 for $1,391,500.
While it's not quite comparable to what they'll be building in Stone Lake Ranch, Thonotosassa, St. Petersburg, or in their other South Tampa locations- it does provide a taste of what you can expect.
Here's an excerpt from their website:
"Have you been searching and searching for the perfect home, thought you found it, and then been disappointed when you saw it in person?
Are your criteria for luxury different than almost everyone you know?
Money may be important, but of UTMOST importance to you is the measure of quality. And while others may determine quality by the label of a product, your personal barometer is the craftsmanship and skill of the maker.
If this describes you, then this masterpiece will not disappoint.
At Monte Carlo, quality construction meets original design, ensuring you’re never far from touches of modern luxury.
The ground floor features 12-foot ceilings and open-plan living, with endless views to the greenery outdoors. Warm light washes in, sweeping across your oversize porcelain tile flooring, quartz counters, and sleek Busby cabinetry.
Your two-story home is a designer’s dream thanks to smart home features, Jennair appliances, abstract light fixtures, and a built-in fireplace entertainment center.
Upstairs welcomes the light with 10-foot ceilings and casement windows decked out in nontraditional form. Home means comfort and proximity to school, parks, and shops, but it also means style.
When you’re surrounded by open living space, sleek architectural details, and blended indoor/outdoor living, you have the framework for a decor masterpiece.
And while your master suite brings spa-like serenity, your outdoor space keeps things social. Cook in your outdoor kitchen, settle in under the covered lanai, and raise a glass to South Tampa living done right."
Now, you may be wondering... Is it even worth buying a house right now?
While relocating, buying a new house, or purchasing a second home/vacation home are all highly dependent on your personal situation- if you are in the market you may want to consider this.
