39 Sales at Toscana in 2014!

Warren W. Smith
Vice President of Sales

Wow - what a great season we had at Toscana with 39 sales since January 1. Between the bike rides, hikes, golf games, dining at the Club, tennis matches, massages, parties and entertaining friends and family, it is amazing that anyone had time to purchase a home. But they did and I'm pleased to share the success the community has experienced so far.

I'm excited to share the news that William Bone, Founder and CEO of Sunrise Company, just announced last Friday that we are moving forward with construction on the final golf holes this fall. The back nine of the North Course will be completed and open for play in November 2015 at which time Members and guests will enjoy 36 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature golf!
