WCI Communities has introduced eight single-family home designs at The Links at Rosedale, a master-planned golf and country club community on S.R. 70 near I-75 in Bradenton. The homebuilder and developer purchased 150 homesites in The Links neighborhood and initially will offer one- and two-story Grand Villa homes with two to three bedrooms, dens and 1,822 to 3,275 square feet of living space.

The Grand Villa homes start from the $300,000s. The eight designs incorporate owner’s suites with large walk-in closets and bathrooms with framed glass-enclosed ceramic tile showers, private water closets and vanities with solid-surface counters and his-and-her sinks. Each home emphasizes an open floor plan.

The Girona model, a three-bedroom villa, has opened in The Founders Club, off Fruitville Road three miles east of Interstate 75.

Built by London Bay Homes, the villa has beach-inspired interior design and a floor plan emphasizing connection to outdoor spaces overlooking the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed golf course, lake and nature preserves.

Its freestanding island, painted gray, offers a double sink and dishwasher, a trio of linen-hued upholstered barstools, and lantern pendant lighting above. Gray accents the wood paneled stove hood.
