Soft breezes blowing, spring flowers in bloom, fresh green leaves budding on the trees…it’s springtime at Miralago. But time is running short to own a home in Fischer & Frichtel’s successful multi-product neighborhood off Mid Rivers Mall Drive at Ohmes Road in Cottleville.
The introduction of Miralago, the only new home development of its size anywhere in the vicinity, was a bold move in the wake of the housing downturn, but the close-in location, extraordinary beauty of the property and vast selection of Fischer designs have proved irresistible to homebuyers. Just two years after grand opening, Miralago is racing to closeout.
In Miralago Cottages, the display model has been sold, and only one move-in-ready Showcase Inventory remains for purchase. Offered for $233,490, the Showcase Devonshire is a three-bedroom two-story with 9-foot ceilings and hardwood flooring on the main level; a second-floor laundry; landscaped, fully sodded yard; and a host of upgraded amenities.
Fewer than half of the 26 homesites in the second and final phase of Miralago Manors are still available. In March, a four-bedroom version of the versatile Carver two-story grand opened, joining the 1.5-story Parker in the display complex. These models represent Fischer’s seven-plan Manor Collection, which starts from $254,900.
Nearing completion in The Manors’ final section is a Craftsman-styled Brookmont on a spacious corner homesite. Listed for $345,491, highlights of this three-bedroom ranch include nearly 1,700 square feet of living space, 9-foot and vaulted ceilings, wood flooring, designer appointments, a fabulous custom island kitchen with stainless appliances, luxury master bath, and a three-car garage.
In Miralago Estates, the final 14 homesites will be released for sale shortly. Situated on a private cul-de-sac, these prime settings average 1/3-acre, and many back to one of the two large lakes in Scott A. Lewis Park, the latest addition to Cottleville’s park system. Scheduled to open this season, the scenic 65-acre facility also features a newly completed lakeside pavilion, barbecue pits, a ramp for canoes and kayaks and a planned walking trail.
Currently available in Miralago Estates are a 1/3-acre-plus homesite; a four-bedroom Arlington II ranch, owner-ready and sale priced at $499,900; and a Durham II ranch just started. The Estates showcases Fischer’s sophisticated Classic Collection, six designs starting from the $330s, loaded with luxury features and all including three-car garages.
