Choosing a Medallion Home with Wide Open Spaces


When Renee walked through the Santa Maria model built by Medallion Home, she knew she had found her perfect home.  Featuring 3,235 square feet of living space and a large lanai, the Santa Maria is an award-winning home with an open, spacious floor plan.

Having lived in a townhouse for 9 years, Renee and her husband, Chad, agreed it was time to spread out in a newly constructed home with wide open spaces, an expansive pool, and large homesite.  All of these must-haves and many more are available to them at the new Hampton Lakes community located east of I-75 off Fruitville Road in Sarasota featuring 3 to 12-acre home sites.

“Chad grew up in a home with a lot of acreage and that was really important to us,” Renee said.  “We also liked that the layout of the home with the Master Suite on one side of the house and the guest bedrooms on the other.”

The Santa Maria offers an open floor plan, featuring a 3-bedroom, 3 bath split plan with a large Master Suite and his & hers walk-in closets and a 3 car garage.  Outdoors is as striking as in, with a beautiful, breezy lanai.

“We were wowed by both the exterior and interior of the Santa Maria so our home choices will be very similar to the model,” Renee added.  “The lanai will be a perfect place for our cats and we hope to build a chicken coop because I’ve always wanted one.”

Hampton Lakes features three-and four-bedroom homes with 2 to 3.5 baths and range from 2,305 plus square feet and are priced from the low $500s.   The community is located in a peaceful, quiet setting at 14567 Fruitville Road.  From I-75, take Fruitville Exit 210 east for approximately ten minutes. Hampton Lakes is on the left side before Verna Road.
