Palencia holds grand opening of Costa del Sol model homes


Home builders, realtors and potential buyers flocked to the recent grand opening of three model homes in Palencia’s Costa del Sol neighborhood.

Attendees at the May 5 event could take a self-guided tour of the model homes from Cottage Home Company, CornerStone Homes and Arthur Rutenberg Homes, and enjoy live music, food and cocktails provided by Anthony’s Gourmet Catering at each location.

Costa del Sol is the final estate neighborhood to be built in Palencia. The 62 lots are surrounded by nature with views of the Intracoastal Waterway.

Palencia broker Naomi Lumley is credited with being Palencia’s longest sales associate. For the past 15 years, she has touted Palencia’s features.

“Palencia has something for every age group,” said Lumley, noting that Costa del Sol is situated on some of the prettiest property in Palencia. “The school district is the number one draw. The Arthur Hills golf course is a big draw and our tennis program is fantastic, so I think the other thing that really sets us apart is when you drive through here and you see how we’ve left the trees.”
