Dostie Homes’ New Model, Featuring the Alexandra Floor Plan, Under Construction in Palencia

October 17th, 2013 · Leave a Comment

Award-winning homebuilder Dostie Homes has begun construction on a new model home in the master-planned community of Palencia. The two-story model, which spotlights Dostie Homes’ stunning new floor plan the Alexandra with a Classic elevation, is located in Palencia’s Reserve II neighborhood, with completion expected by early 2014.

“It is exciting for our company because we have created a new floor plan that was inspired by some of our buyers in Palencia,” said Chris Dostie, president of Dostie Homes. “Our model home will showcase several unique lifestyle features – a raised private home office situated on a landing in between the home’s floors, a multi-faceted outdoor living area and an “evolution space,” which is an expanded laundry/bonus room that can be customized for each family.”

The Alexandra features 3,909 square feet containing four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two half-baths. The master suite and a guest suite are both located on the first floor of the home, purposefully designed with the multi-generational family in mind. Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms and a bonus room that opens onto a balcony. The great-room style first floor layout has a formal dining room just off the grand entrance foyer, with an open gathering room leading to an outdoor lanai. An L-shaped island adds flexibility to the designer kitchen. The home also features a three-car garage.

The cleverly designed home office in the Alexandra floats between floors on a landing, offering a secluded and separate space for either a work or playroom.

The idea for the “evolution space,” which takes the place of a traditional laundry room, was conceived by Dostie Homes after a homeowner requested a flex room that could serve as a painting studio. With all the amenities of a high-end laundry room but with extra surfaces and cabinets, the evolution space is ideal for a craft room, hobby center or any other usable workspace idea.

The expanded outdoor living area was similarly inspired, as homeowners in Palencia greatly enjoy time outside of their homes in the community’s beautiful surroundings. In the Alexandra model home, there are two outdoor sitting areas, a state-of-the art summer kitchen and upgrades such as beautiful stone on the outdoor fireplace and retaining wall.

The Alexandra is priced from the high $400,000s. Dostie Homes is also building a spec home featuring the Alexandra floor plan on a beautiful home site in the Reserve II neighborhood that is lined with oaks and other majestic hardwoods. The home and home site are priced in the low $700,000s, and construction will be completed in the winter of 2014. This residence features the same expanded living spaces and amenities as the model home but with the Chateau elevation.

The Dostie family has been building homes in Jacksonville since 1958, and Dostie Homes was among the original team of builders in Palencia when the community opened in 2001. The company has enjoyed an excellent and long-standing relationship with the Palencia team.

Homeowners in Palencia enjoy world-class amenities, including the golf course, the Palencia Golf Clubhouse and 40-acre Village Center with dining, shopping and banquet facilities, lighted Hydro Grid clay tennis courts, sports fields and eight miles of multi-use paths and walks connecting residents to natural areas and marshes of the scenic Tolomato River. The community is near top-rated schools and a short drive from the beaches, shopping, historic St. Augustine and downtown Jacksonville.
