The area looks more and more like townhomes as compared to detached houses. On the other hand, the less non house area you have the less you have to take care of. If you were living in a condo the house walls would be touching. I think these homes are built to be more affordable than the previously built ones.

The houses as pictured on both sides of Spider Lily ST in Fenney have driveway lengths of about 25 FT. which is at least 6 feet shorter than mine and others on our street in Lake Deaton.

The new builds on Heston PL, Leggett LN and other roads in this picture have driveway lengths of around 23 to 25 feet. So again, the widths between houses facing each other across the street are much less that I am accustomed to in Lake Deaton. The one green circle driveway has a length of about 28 feet.

While I like a larger separation, it will not be a deal breaker for many.
One good thing is you can save a few hundred if you end up getting pavers put down.

There are homes in every price range down here. Lots going from $15,000 to well into the $200,000 + range and not on a golf course, McClure has an Ivy model on the golf course, no pool, $726,000.00, there have been a few re-sales in Fenney that sold for well over $600,000 with and without pools and no golf course views. That being said there are also a lot of nice homes under $200,000. Another thing I have noticed is there are a lot of Vilas going up in the 3 newest villages.

There was a section we drove through that had pavers on the streets and streetlight that were like those in the premier neighborhoods. They sure looked like premier homes. Maybe there have been none sold but I believe they are under construction and they are very close to each other. This post was not made to be critical, just to post an observation which apparently had been made before.

True abou no Premier homes south of State Rt. 44. The driveways, however, are at least 4’ To 5’ shorter than the driveways north of 44 for the designer type homes. I live in LaBelle and I can put one car behind another in the driveway (4 cars if necessary) and so can other residents. That is not the case south of State Rt 44 in Fenney, DeSota, Marsh Bend and other Villages.

Those particular lots are not premiers and they are all sold and were priced between $200,00 and $300,000, there are several homes on that street already occupied and they are all designers. It's a very nice street.

We have a lot in Monarch Grove that is on a curve .. so the lot is somewhat pie shaped.. The setbacks are "minimum" so the house will be pushed back to accomplish two things: driveway length and widening of house / garage. We'll see in a couple weeks how that will look. Still have loads of room in back. South of 44 isn't the only area of shortened driveways: I've noticed plenty below 466A

Wasn't aware the setback was minimum so good news there - thanks!

I'm on lot 96, adjacent to the clump of trees at the Regan Rd intersection.

If you actually built your house on a plot of land in Fenney, you may be able to stretch your house front to back and side to side to make it a premier house if you have the land to do it.

You would have to stretch the roof up too. Premieres have 12-foot ceilings. Designers have 10-foot ceilings.
