An Altamonte Springs developer is planning a cluster of customized homes in Oviedo, as he seeks to counter the plethora of production homes being built in Central Florida.
Ahmad Ghandour, president of Sun-Tech Builders, is in the final engineering stages for the 12 homes which will offer a wide variety of custom options. He'll move on to seeking a general contractor in the coming months, he told GrowthSpotter on Wednesday.
The project, on 4.5 acres located the corner of Lakes Hayes Road and Paddock Way, lies west of the Alafaya Trail and south of E. Chapman Road.
It will be called Brighton Estates and cost $5 million to $6 million to develop, Ghandour said. The project will also include a new public road.
The project comes as thousands of homes made from pre-drawn building plans, or stock plans, are being built in the area by large homebuilders for the sake of efficiency. Those doing customized homes work with much smaller tracts of land, for the most part.
Ghandour sees demand for his homes from the growing number of people in the area with higher paying jobs.
