Neal Communities and Neal Signature Homes Employees Paint Playhouses for Habitat for Humanity South Sarasota County’s Cottages for Kids Program

Employees from Southwest Florida’s premier private homebuilder, Neal Communities, and the luxury home division, Neal Signature Homes, volunteered their time to paint playhouses that will be given to families with young children. The cottages were purchased, constructed, painted and donated by the Neal companies for Habitat for Humanity South Sarasota County’s Cottages for Kids program.

The newly constructed playhouses were painted in light, cheerful colors and decorated with holiday wreaths and poinsettias. They were on display in Downtown Wellen December 6-10 as part of the Light Up Wellen – Tree Lighting & Holiday Celebration before being delivered to the selected families.



Downtown Wellen is a pedestrian-friendly shopping, dining and gathering spot with entertainment options including parks, playgrounds and an outdoor stage and event lawn.

Neal Signature Homes has two model homes under construction in EVERLY at Wellen Park. These models represent eight available floor plans for the community and will showcase fresh concepts in Florida living. With more than 3,000 square feet of air-conditioned living space in each, the two model homes will feature multiple en suite bedrooms, expansive living spaces and enhanced outdoor living. One model will include an optional casita, showing how this flexible additional space can be used for multi-general family living, a live-in nanny or to accommodate guests. Both models will be professionally decorated, reflecting modern lifestyles and options for working from home and multigeneration living. Both models are expected to be completed by the end of March 2024, but homesites are available for purchase now.

“We very much look forward to having our model homes at EVERLY open in the Spring,” said Carlos Puente, president of Neal Signature Homes. “So, since we are so impatiently waiting for said models, we figured we would calm our nerves through painting and donating these lovely playhouses for the Cottages for Kids program. We really enjoy bringing homes to life, whether they are our beautiful Signature ones, or these fun ones that will bring enjoyment to some great children.”

Neal Communities also has homes available in two communities within the Downtown/Playmore District of Wellen Park, offering easy access to CoolToday Park, home to the Atlanta Braves’ spring training, and shopping and entertainment venues. Avelina is a private, gated boutique community offering just 96 homes and five stunning floorplans ranging from 2,327-2,762 square feet. Homes offer 3-4 bedrooms and 3 car garages with British West Indies and Coastal architectural styles. Wysteria is a larger neighborhood offering 2-3 bedroom floorplans ranging from 1,422-1,860 square feet with 2 car garages. Amenities at Wysteria include a resort-style pool and pickleball courts.
