Handler went on to say, “Fieldstone Ranch is really coming into its own as a mature and successful community. We’ve sold a number of our inventory homes there, and the rear gate has been installed. We’re offering new landscaping programs, and the new Phase Two lots are incredible.

The oversized home sites (80’ x 150’) offer large lawn areas with setbacks, allowing ample room for expanded outdoor living areas, a swimming pool, gardens and privacy. Many of the spacious lots are lakefront properties, lending a serene setting; and the wide sidewalks and master lake-fed irrigation system are just a few of the advantages residents enjoy.

Building a custom home shouldn’t be difficult or outrageously expensive. For more than 25 years, the expert team at GHO Homes, an award-winning home builder, has built dream homes for hundreds of happy customers. The GHO Homes Tailor Made Program is designed to make it easy for homebuyers to build a customized home in as quickly as five months on your lot or in one several desirable communities in Indian River and St. Lucie Counties.

Starting with a portfolio of dozens of designer floor plans, ranging in size from 1,700 square feet to over 3,700 square feet, you select a base plan—or two—then then mix and match room layouts, add rooms, add a garage, expand rooms, raise ceilings, move walls, customize your kitchen and more. The only limit to a Tailor-Made home is your imagination.


Bill Handler, president of GHO Homes, sums up the Tailor Made Home program, “Tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll make it happen. There really isn’t a limit to what we can do. Our goal to is to enhance your lifestyle.”
GHO Homes has three Design Centers where home buyers select flooring, cabinetry and finishes. But if you want something special not found in the Design Center, that’s fine. Handler says, “We offer a great line of products but if you want something else, we’ll find it for you.”
Homebuyers can select the building lot of their choice, including many lakefront lots, in ten Treasure Coast communities. Lots are available in St. Lucie County at Bedford Park at Tradition, and in the Vero Beach communities of Ashley Lakes, Spyglass, Diamond Court Village, Drexel Park at Trillium, Fieldstone Ranch, Lake Tangelo, Park Lane Estates, South lakes and Stoney Brook Farm.
Or you can purchase your own lot anywhere on the Treasure Coast for your Tailor Made home. If you are considering your own lot purchase, get GHO Homes involved at the beginning and they can advise with issues such as access, utilities and soil testing to make sure your site is the perfect setting for your new home.
Once a lot has been selected, Handler will personally meet with you to discuss your dream home. Within 10 days, the GHO designers will create a custom plan. There is no need to hire an outside architect. You are assigned a project manager who stays with your project and in touch with you through every step of the building process. Within about five months, you can be in your dream home.
If a customized, Tailor Made home sounds expensive, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Carson Model Home

There’s a movement that’s rapidly gathering strength throughout our country… …..It’s a grassroots groundswell that’s all about helping our own communities regain their dignity and pride…..
BUY LOCAL
It comes from a feeling of needing an identity….the need to know our hearts are anchored and we’re immensely proud of where are roots are firmly planted.
As Americans, we are justifiably proud of our hometowns and the individuality and uniqueness of our local shops and restaurants…and the result is we’re all doing our best to BUY LOCAL!!!
For example… the local restaurant wants to buy his produce from the local grower so the more we eat out in this restaurant the better it is for the restaurant , the local grower….and for us…..for when our town does well, we all thrive. We as a people have an inherent generosity….we want to see everyone doing well!!!!!
And so it is for the local builder.
GHO HOMES has been building in Vero Beach for over twenty years….and we’re so proud of what we’ve contributed to the citizens of this pretty Olde Florida town.
Our lovely Indian River County landscape is dotted with lovely communities that we’ve created…so far twelve communities and counting. As I write, we are creating more dream homes in 6 more communities….with amazing price points and incredible values from $170,000 to upper $300’s.
There’s a comfort in knowing just who is building your nest, someone you can actually talk to…experts with many years of experience in building happy, successful communities.
Here at GHO when you’re ready to sit down and go over your plans….you get to meet with our building supers who’ve been with the company over 15 years…..and our President may be there also!!!
We know you’ve dreamed about this retirement home in gorgeous Florida for such a long time and we want to do all we can to make it your happy reality.
