Exciting New John Neal Homes Design For The Forest

John Neal Barbados II at The Forest
A modernization on classic Florida Mediterranean with an advance design by John Neal Homes offers buyers many options for fine living at Sarasota's premier master planned estate home community. Neal has recently introduced The Barbados II in The Forest at High Hat Ranch. It's the perfect combination of classic Florida style with a modern touch. The plan can flex from a single story three bedroom to a two story four bedroom with almost 5,000 square feet under air and over 6,800 total square footage including the large outdoor living areas.

This impressive estate home will compliment the wooded acreage homesites at The Forest. The architectural style gives the Barbados II beautiful curb appeal. Upon entering, the interior reveals an elegant open floor plan with views throughout to expansive outdoor living. Several rooms overlook or open directly onto the lanais and outdoor kitchen expanding the opportunities for Florida living.

There are four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms including the optional second floor bonus area. This flexible space can be a The Barbados II Lanai and Pool
second master, guest/in-laws suite or another living area. It has a full bathroom and a large balcony overlooking the lanai and pool. The main floor is the perfect "split plan" with three bedrooms, two dining areas, a living room, den, club room, and a family room that opens seamlessly into the outside lanai with a "disappearing" corner. An optional pool and kitchen add to the entertain and living areas of this home.

The Barbados II, with its flexibility, makes it an ideal choice for couples who want an impressive home for entertaining or those with growing or expanded families. Learn more about The Barbados II and preview the floor plan on The Forest website.
