Port Charlotte, Florida will soon be home to the area’s first tiny town. Simple Life Ventures plans to build up to 280 tiny homes on 68 acres off Burnt Store Road. The tiny homes range in size from 499 to 1,100 square feet, on lots that span 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. Prices range from $129,000 to $199,000 plus rent for the land, utilities, and taxes that ranges from $675 to $775 per month.
Reflections will be the company’s fourth community. They have two in North Carolina and one in Central Florida. Construction is expected to begin this fall, sales will begin at the end of the year and the first residents should be moving in next year.
“When we developed the whole concept, the idea was to provide for aging but active baby boomers, but at a low cost,” said Mike McCann, CEO, Owner and Founder of Simple Life Ventures. “We started playing with the concept in 2015. We knew there was a need. We bought a blighted mobile home park in Ashville, North Carolina, and that was the first one.”
McCann said Port Charlotte is the perfect place for his newest tiny home community.
“Our market studies led us to where they were,” McCann continued. “There is so much lifestyle already there so we don’t want to pioneer a lifestyle and a concept and that area is a really good fit for our concept. It was all about lowering the cost of housing for the swell of people that were retiring to Florida.”
