Sam Rodgers Homes is bringing custom-built homes to Venice’s newest community: Gran Place at Wellen Park. Soon we will begin the construction of 42 homes in the new Playmore District at the southwest corner of Tamiami Trail and West Villages Parkway. It will be a 63-acre gated community, of which just 21 acres will be developed. The balance of the property will consist of nature preserves and wildlife habitats.
Located in Venice FL, Gran Place at Wellen Park is only a short drive from some of Florida’s most recognizable beaches, top schools, luxurious dining and that dream-like Floridian lifestyle. Not only can you visit a new beach everyday, but you can enjoy games at the baseball field of CoolToday Park! This wonderful park is the new spring training facility of the Atlanta Braves.
Rebranded back in April, Wellen Park was formerly known as the West Villages and began along Tamiami Trail and River Road at the former Taylor Ranch. North Port annexed parts of it in 2000 and now consists of several gated neighborhoods including a commercial district. At buildout, Wellen Park will contain some 20,000 homes and 50,000 residents, or about two thirds of North Port’s current population. It’s compared to other master-planned or contained communities such as Lakewood Ranch in northern Sarasota County and Manatee County, The Villages near Ocala, or Babcock Ranch in Charlotte County.
Wellen Park is a special place, full of good vibes and fun times that only slow down when you decide it’s time. You’ll begin each day with a smile, surrounded by everything you need to be your best and happiest self. Thriving connections. Friendly neighborhoods. A downtown with shops, restaurants, and sunsets galore. There are hundreds of ways to brighten your days, enlivened by the natural wonderland of Florida’s always amazing West Coast. Imagine your best day ever… every day with the same quality construction, customized design and personalized floor plans you’ve come to know from Sam Rodgers Homes.
