ORLANDO, Fla., -- M/I Homes closed on 71 acres in early in January to develop 139 single-family home sites in Phase I of Encore at Ovation. Site development will begin Feb.1 at the new neighborhood located near the intersection of Avalon Road (545) and Western Way / Flemming Road in Horizon West.

David Byrnes, area president in the Orlando region, said 92 of the home sites will offer 50-foot widths for one and two-story homes ranging from 1,900 to 3,700 square feet of living area.

The other 47 lots with 32-foot widths will offer the homebuilder’s new two-story, single family detached homes ranging from 1,800 to 2,800 square feet of living area.

Byrnes said design of four new floor plans for the new product line is currently underway. “The new line is innovative and we’re very excited about the diversity and potential of Encore at Ovation,” he said.

Development of all 139 homesites is expected to be complete by Q4, Byrnes added.
