Gran Paradiso Custom Builders' Models Now Open

Great news! The Sam Rodgers and Arthur Rutenberg models in Gran Paradiso at the West Villages are now complete and standing by for you to tour! There is no word yet as to when, or if, a grand opening event may be held, but there is certainly no need to wait for one. Words cannot do justice for these stunning masterworks of architectural and interior decor design. Really, I am in awe.

The Sam Rodgers models are the Bellisimo and the Riviera II plans, and the Arthur Rutenberg is the Messina plan. It truly is marvelous how they so flawlessly meld classic quality detailing with a few striking, contemporary chic fixtures to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere of distinction. The remarkable location with spectacular views simply add to the opulence of these extravagant masterpieces.

Each of these homes is so grand and worthy of exclusive consideration that I am going to post pictures of each individually in separate posts. First (here) will be pictures of the Messina that I took the other day. Let me apologize about the quality of the photos. I am not a photographer, and the home was so bright. It was a lovely day and the place was just so flooded with gorgeous natural light that it was a challenge for me to overcome it in order to accentuate the interior detailing instead. Hopefully, the snaps at least do not do it a disservice. Either way, it is definitely a must see, so please go check it out in person when you can!



If you are considering purchasing a home in this community, please let me assist you. My services and resources are of no cost to you, and in most instances, I am able to save home buyers some money. I do not work for any of the wonderful builders in the West Villages. My services and information (including the resources provided at are wholly independent of these developers. No other independent professional is more knowledgeable about this community, and enlisting me to assist with your transaction serves also to fund these resources to keep them available for you and others on an ongoing basis.

Please, check out my website, and contact me for more information!
Look forward to hearing from you!
