Valencia del Sol is one of the newest 55+ communities coming to the Tampa Bay Area in Florida. Builder GL Homes will unveil this brand new active adult community to the public with a grand opening celebration on Saturday, March 10. Homes are priced from the mid $200s and include luxury standard features and innovative designs. Valencia del Sol will be located on US 301 at 19th Avenue in Wimauma, FL.


This gated 55-plus community will consist of 565 homes upon completion, which will include twin villas and single-family homes. GL Homes offers active adult homebuyers 20 unique floor plans from five distinct collections to choose from, ranging in size from 1,492 to 3,273 square feet.

These homes feature two or three bedrooms, two to three-and-a-half bathrooms, and attached two or three-car garages. All homes are single-story and feature gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, GE appliances, luxurious bathrooms, spacious master bedrooms, screened covered patios, walk-in closets, energy-efficient construction, and low-maintenance exteriors.


The builder also plans to offer an assortment of resort-style amenities and endless entertainment that promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Valencia del Sol will include a spacious 25,000 square-foot clubhouse that will be the central hub of the community.

Some of the top-notch amenities include a grand social hall with a raised stage and dance floor, fully equipped fitness center, massage room, restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, catering kitchen, sports lounge with billiards and poker tables, arts and crafts studio, and card room.

The amenities continue outdoors with a resort-style pool with beach entry and lap lanes, a whirlpool spa, eight lighted pickleball courts, five lighted tennis clay courts, two lighted bocce ball courts, a dog park, event lawn, and scenic lakes.

Social Atmosphere and Lifestyle

And just like GL Homes’ other active adult communities, Valencia del Sol will also have a full-time lifestyle director that will help plan and coordinate a long list of activities, trips, and other fun events. The community will also provide more than 100 clubs that will allow residents to share hobbies and bond with other like-minded adults.

Local Attractions

Located just minutes away from the Gulf Coast, this new active adult community will offer homeowners easy access to beautiful beaches, a variety of restaurants, and plenty of shopping options. Valencia del Sol is also located southeast of downtown Tampa and north of Sarasota, making it convenient for residents to travel throughout the area for additional entertainment and attractions.

Prospective buyers looking for new construction and resort-style living within a 55+ community in the Tampa Bay Area should check out the grand opening event at Valencia del Sol.
