Tivoli Homes of Sarasota Completes The Cottages of Curry Creek Development in Sarasota County with the Final Home Sold



Tivoli Homes of Sarasota Continues Development of Quality Custom Homes for Individual Homeowners




Sarasota, Fl. – 2/4/2019

Almost two years after the Grand Opening celebration at Curry Creek, this exclusive waterfront community situated on a private peninsula in Nokomis (Sarasota County) has sold out. The Cottages of Curry Creek is a private gated community offering private dock options and direct access to the Gulf of Mexico for homeowners.

"The successful completion of the Cottages of Curry Creek has come at an ideal time, as more and more people are calling Sarasota County home," said Gary Johnson, president of Tivoli Homes of Sarasota. "Tivoli’s work to deliver this waterfront-access neighborhood of custom homes has been very enjoyable. We are proud to have created this remarkable and unique community.”


Tivoli Homes of Sarasota prides itself on building custom homes that involve the client as part of the design team as the house is planned. What's important to clients is what's important to Tivoli: Quality in both design and construction, attention to detail and lasting value. The difference can be seen immediately, in the homes' brightness and airiness, in the masterful way the outdoors is brought in through abundant glass and environmentally sensitive landscaping. Outdoor entertainment areas, including custom-designed pools and spas, kitchen and barbecue facilities are also offered.


Tivoli Homes of Sarasota has developed many communities in Sarasota County including Curry Creek, Longwood Run, The Oaks Country Club, Callista Village and Rivo at Ringling. Tivoli has also constructed homes in the Hammocks, Park Trace and Three Oaks.


Now Tivoli Homes is excited to shift focus to the individual homeowner looking for a luxury custom home on their select lot. “If you find the right clients, building a home for them is a very rewarding experience,” says Johnson. Tivoli provides design-build services, which provide clients a value as our team has experience working together.

Tivoli Homes of Sarasota has completed construction on its newest model home — the “Magnolia,” a spacious French Country-style design built at 1807 Magnolia Street, Sarasota. With its combined emphasis on family life, gracious living, and easy entertaining, the Magnolia is Tivoli’s vision for homes situated west of the Trail in Sarasota. “Our Magnolia design, with four bedrooms, three baths, game room, three-car garage, pool, spa, and outdoor kitchen, is the perfect complement for contemporary families in Sarasota desiring to be close to great schools, downtown, shopping and dining destinations, and, of course, proximity to the beaches,” said Gary Johnson, president of Tivoli Homes. “We’re excited to be able to offer this design, customized to buyers’ specific needs and desires, throughout Sarasota.”

The 4,134 square-foot home is situated west of Tamiami Trail, in the middle of the Poinsettia Park neighborhood, known to locals as the “flower streets” neighborhood, and is just three blocks to the south of Southside Elementary and three blocks to the north of Siesta Drive. The Magnolia is offered at $1,399,900.

The Magnolia also features an expansive island kitchen with Thermador appliances, quartz and granite counters, large walk-in pantry and laundry. High attention has been paid to design details which include tray ceilings, meticulously crafted beams and millwork, porcelain plank floors, and stone work.

The concrete block, energy-efficient home utilizes sustainable technology such as spray foam insulation in a sealed attic system, meaning air conditioning systems and ductwork are in conditioned space as opposed to the typical 140-degree vented attic found in most Florida homes. Other energy efficiencies are gained through a heat pump hybrid system with recirculating water for the water heater, and insulated, impact-rated windows and doors. As well the home utilizes embedded hurricane anchors, and individually fastened concrete tiles in the roof.

The model home is open every Sunday, noon to 4 PM, or by appointment any time.

What Drives Sales at Cottages of Curry Creek?

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, July 21st, 2016 – Tivoli Homes has intensified marketing efforts for its newest community—the Cottages of Curry Creek in Nokomis—after its other property developments met success in the resurgent market for Sarasota homes for sale in recent years. This Sarasota-based company is building upon the strong sales exhibited in The Cottages of Callista Village which it developed around 2005 in Longwood Run just off of University Parkway. Tivoli has already sold out its 21 cottage-style single family homes in this community. There is a recent resale posting here though—a two-bedroom home with a floor area of 1,930 square feet and an asking price in the high $200s.


Pre-construction Listings

What Drives Sales at Cottages of Curry Creek?Pricing at The Cottages of Curry Creek starts at $469,900 as quoted for a pre-construction residence, one of two currently listed amongst Sarasota homes for sale. Designed with three bedrooms and two baths, this residence features a floor area of 1,843 square feet.

Tivoli has also put on the market its award-winning Curry Creek home model showcased in the Parade of Homes held early in 2016. This home has a floor plan measuring 2,265 square feet likewise designed with three bedrooms and two baths. It was adjudged “overall winner” in its category in the 2016 Parade of Homes and was also picked as “best curb appeal,” and tied in the award for “best kitchen” and “best floor plan.”


Mini-peninsula Layout

The Cottages of Curry Creek is planned as a gated community with just 12 home sites each platted at a minimum of 10,000 square feet in a peninsula-like parcel. Each lot is located either adjacent to Curry Creek or adjoining a canal. This layout allows homeowners the option to have private boat docks providing access to Roberts Bay and onwards to the Gulf of Mexico. Outdoor kitchens and swimming pools are added options for Curry Creek homes for sale.

The homes in this community are all designed as Key West style cottages with spacious front porches like those at the Callista Village. Similarly, the Curry Creek residences have semi-custom designs featuring fiber cement siding over concrete block, and their construction follow green home standards.

For durability and energy-efficiency, the residential construction at Tivoli’s Curry Creek community includes wind-resistant metal roofs, spray foam insulation, and impact-resistant hurricane glass windows and doors. High-efficiency air-conditioning systems and heat pump-style hot water heaters are added building features that make these homes eligible for Energy Star rating.


Combing for Options at The Hammocks

Tivoli Homes can also take credit for the recent build-out at The Hammocks, one of the most attractive search destinations for inland Sarasota homes for sale. This gated community is located east of I-75 at Bee Ridge Road as it bends southwards between the golf community of Heritage Oaks and the equally fascinating neighborhood of Misty Creek Preserve.

Sitting just east of another golf community, Laurel Oak Country Club, The Hammocks was developed starting in the early 2000s. Full development of its 194 home sites was stalled by the Great Recession, but Tivoli resumed building here in 2010. Resale homes are currently priced between the $200s and the $900s, featuring floor areas ranging from about 1,550 square feet up to approximately 5,650 square feet.

Recent turnover of Hammock properties is relatively brisk, reflecting the upbeat market interest on Sarasota homes for sale. During the last six months, seven sales were recorded in this community. One of these was a build by Tivoli Homes which had a tag price edging towards the $600s, featuring three bedrooms and three baths within a floor area of close to 2,800 square feet.
