Mobley New Construction Homes in Carrollwood

Mobley Homes is a semi-custom builder that has been building beautiful homes in Tampa for over 30 years.

Aside from their beautiful homes, one of the reasons I love this builder is their “semi-custom” specialty.  They offer ready-to-go floor plans that are both functional and luxurious, but they are able to customize those plans to fit your life.

Do you need a second kitchen?  A 6-car garage?  If it fits on the lot you pick, they can build it!

Mobley Homes is now building in two exclusive, gated communities in the desirable Carrollwood locations:  Smitter Reserve and Shadow Woods.

Smitter Reserve

Smitter Reserve has seven large lots and homes start at the upper 300s.  Their availalbe floor plans include the Briarwood and the Teakwood.

The Briarwood starts at $369,900 and features 5 beds, 3 baths, and a bonus room.

The Teakwood starts at $355,900 and features 4 beds and 3.5 baths.

The Nantucket starts at $431,900 and features 3 beds and 3 baths in the one story model, with options for an additional bedroom and bonus room upstairs.

Sunset Over Lutz

Lutz Sunset

I just had to share a photo of one of our beautiful Lutz / Land O’ Lakes sunsets.

This photo’s actually a little blurry, since I took it with my cell phone, but it still shows some of the brilliant colors that adorn our evening skies on the west coast of Florida.

Find your own piece of Floridian paradise from which to enjoy the sunsets at Rosemary Sells Tampa.

Surround yourself with the beauty of Florida, at this half acre lot with 70 feet of water frontage on Little Half Moon Lake.

It’s a nature lover’s paradise, with stunning lake views balanced by the shade of the Cypress and Oak trees. It’s located near the end of a quiet, dead-end street, in a secluded area that feels like it’s far from everything, but is actually just around the corner from every amenity you could ever want or need.

The property is close to Carrollwood’s unique and abundant amenities, with very easy access to the Veteran’s Expressway, which will quickly take you to downtown Tampa and its luxury shopping and restaurants, Tampa International Airport, and the gulf beaches.

The lot is frequented by various types of birds, from woodpeckers to herons to ducks, and is populated with some native edible fruit trees, like mulberries, cherries, and bananas.

There’s plenty of room to build your perfect dream home on this lot, and there is already a large shed on the property that has electric and can function as storage or a workshop.

Enjoy the unmatched beauty of the sunsets of Florida’s west coast as you fish from your own backyard, with the gentle breezes that come off the lake, carrying the calls of the local birds and the scent of the blooming gardenias.

Arbor Woods in Wesley Chapel Model Home Photos

I recently visited the brand new model homes at the Arbor Woods community in Wesley Chapel.  I’ve already written about Arbor Woods, but now I’m excited to share the photos I’ve had a chance to take of the Taylor Morrison models before their grand opening to the public.

The kitchens are fantastic, the rooms bright and airy, and the flow is natural.  From the hardwood floors to the crown molding, these homes exude elegance, but also great livability.

A low HOA fee will cover the gated entrance and a future community pool with kid’s splash zone, kid’s playground, and multipurpose trail.  There are no CDDs.

I’ve posted my favorite photos below, but please excuse the quality of some of the photos, as they were all taken with my cell phone!
