David Weekley Homes

The Coastal Cottage homes by David Weekley Homes offer beautifully functional living spaces both indoor and out. A spacious front porch and back lanai allow you to enjoy the outdoors without sacrificing the comforts of home. Relax with a glass of wine after a long day, catch up with friends on your front porch, or watch the kids play in the backyard. And no need to stress when you crank up the AC in the summertime–homes by David Weekley Homes have guaranteed maximum energy usage for heating and air conditioning through the Environments for Living program.
