Atlantic and Gulf Coasts of Florida
Since 1976, GL Homes has become one of Florida’s most
successful developers of innovative masterplanned communities. The Sunshine State builder continues that tradition with four active-adult Valencia communities featuring
world-class amenities specifically designed for the 55+
lifestyle in a choice of distinctive locations.
On the Atlantic Coast of Florida are Valencia Bay in Boynton Beach and Valencia Cay in Port St. Lucie, while the Gulf
Coast is home to Valencia del Sol in Tampa and Valencia
Bonita in Bonita Springs. Those locations were carefully chosen for their convenient access to each area’s top health care
facilities, cultural and entertainment attractions, shopping
centers, golf courses, and beaches.
All of the GL Homes Valencia communities are designed
with central clubhouses that are the hub of its signature
resort-style living. ;ach has a fully-e;uipped fitness center
with cardio/strength training e;uipment and regular fitness
classes, a grand social hall for music concerts and theatrical performances, restaurants with indoor/outdoor seating,
and multipurpose rooms for special-interest clubs and activities. Just outside are pool complexes and racquet clubs
with pickleball, tennis, and bocce courts for both friendly
and competitive league play. Single-family homes and villas
in an ama;ing variety of ;oor plans range in price from the

Birchwood at Brambleton is a unique residential community in the Virginia countryside that’s an oasis from the
bustle of big-city life and serenely walkable by design. From
the nature trails that ring the neighborhoods to the planned
commercial center, Birchwood residents will need only their
sneakers ;or bikes; to stay fit and access community amenities, shops, restaurants, and professional services.
Also just a stroll away is the Birchwood Clubhouse, which
features indoor/outdoor pools, indoor/outdoor kitchens,
bocce and pickleball courts, and plenty of rooms for activities like yoga classes, arts & crafts, and special-interest club
meetings. The Stream Valley Trail Park offers a community
event pavilion, outdoor fitness stations, communal gardens,
and a fishing dock.
Model homes by the region’s leading builders are now
open for inspection that feature cottage-style residences
with more than 2,500 square feet of living space, plus private outdoor courtyards. Bungalow home models that can
be nearly 3,000 square feet in size with four bedrooms and
baths are also available, as well as low-maintenance condos
and villas with designer touches and state-of-the-art conveniences.
Birchwood at Brambleton is located near the Virginia
town of Ashburn in the heart of Loudoun County, just 25
miles from Washington, D.C., and only minutes from the
rest of the world via Dulles International Airport. A short

of the Blue Ridge Mountains and popular wineries in the
