Henin Group’s Two DeBary, FL Developments Near SunRail Station Picking up Speed

Riviera Bella Extension Model, DeBary, FL

DeBary, FL--- Site development is going fast in Henin Group’s new single-family neighborhoods in DeBary. Sales got underway once all approvals came in for Phase I homesites at both the 66-acre Riviera Bella Extension and the 64-acre Springview Woods.

More than 20 new D.R. Horton homes have been presold at Springview Woods, since the homebuilder finished development of 49 homesites they closed on last spring. 

They also opened a decorated model at 400 Tallow Wood Circle in the community located off U.S. 17-92 next to the DeBary SunRail station.

D.R. Horton recently closed on its first 20 homesites at Riviera Bella’s new 293-homesite extension located directly across Fort Florida Road from the original gated community, and they started construction of a model that will be opened in 60 days, according to Jerome Henin, president of Henin Group.

 The homebuilder has committed to purchase the remaining 273 lots at Riviera Bella Extension, Henin added.

D.R. Horton is now selling collections of single-family homes at Riviera Bella Extension and Springview Woods in six distinct one and two-story designs priced from the mid-$200,000s.

“Sales are going extremely well at both of these new developments,” Henin said. “At Springview Woods we anticipate the 195 homesites will go quickly, especially with the recently announced commercial project “The Junction,” that will include a grocery store, dining and shops right across from the SunRail station.

Jerome Henin
There are still 29 estate exclusive homesites available within the original 410-unit Riviera Bella development. 

Henin Homes offers custom and semi-custom homes on the riverfront that are priced at well over $1 million.

 M/I Homes is selling several home designs priced from $300,000 up to $850,000.

Buildout of Riviera Bella with well-maintained amenities, including over 700 homes with the new Riviera Bella Extension is anticipated by 2025.    The Springview Woods buildout will most likely be in 2022.
