DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – Toll Brothers, the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, will host Toll Advantage Days on Saturday, January 27, and Sunday, January 28, 2007 at its communities statewide, including Southeast Florida. Open to prospective homebuyers between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., the events will give the public a rare opportunity to meet with Toll Brothers management teams and learn how homes are built from start to finish.
According to Toll Brothers Division President Mike Donnelly, the events will provide a behind-the-scenes look at luxury home building.
Toll Brothers will open the doors to residences under construction and invites the public to experience first-hand the numerous advantages a Toll Brothers home includes,” Donnelly explained. “Visitors will have the opportunity to preview hot products and learn about what’s new in quality construction techniques and craftsmanship. This is a rare opportunity to be with industry experts, tour construction sites and find out about the ‘latest and greatest.’”
Visitors will learn about land planning and community design; the best ideas for placing a home on a home site; identifying and recognizing quality construction; home building technology and energy efficiency, all while touring homes in various stages of construction. Information packets will also be handed out.
As an example, visitors will be told about the use of recycled materials, Proflext Underlayment, Bituthene 3000 Water Membrane, high-efficiency air-conditioning systems and many other components found in Toll Brothers homes.
“This will be a very informative and worthwhile experience,” Donnelly pointed out. “Although Toll Brothers has hosted Toll Advantage Days in others regions of the country, and in some of our communities in Florida, this year we’ll have Florida completely covered,” Donnelly added.

CASA LUNA SHINES LIGHT ON GREAT VALUE AT TRIESTE AT BOCA RATON
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Three luxury townhome designs are available as Toll Brothers offers final purchase opportunities at Trieste at Boca Raton, located on the east side of Federal Highway just north of Yamato Road in East Boca Raton. Ranging in size from approximately 2,900 to 3,100 air-conditioned living space, they are priced from the $700,000s.
Among the distinctive floorplans presented is the Casa Luna, featuring three levels of luxury. Upon arrival, one encounters a covered outside entry along with a two-story-high interior foyer. Adjacent to this entrance is a bonus room with sliding glass doors opening onto a covered lanai, and a landscaped backyard. There is also a full bath, enabling the bonus room to serve as a guest suite or fourth bedroom. Other uses include a fitness center, hobby room or home office. Also on the entry level is a two-car garage with a full-size driveway.
The main living areas of the Casa Luna are situated on the second floor, which is accessible by either stairs or a private elevator.
“On the second level, you’ll find a study and powder room, plus a well-appointed gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, a pantry and GE® appliances, including a gas cooktop,” said Project Manager Ryan Lovelady. “The kitchen overlooks the breakfast area and adjoining balcony, as well as a spacious great room. It, too, has a balcony with access to the outdoors through sliding glass doors.
Included in the Casa Luna’s more than 2,900 square feet of air-conditioned living space is a third floor accommodating the master suite. The master bedroom has coffered ceilings, two walk-in closets, and a sumptuous master bath outfitted with a jetted Jacuzzi® tub, separate shower, and two vanities with his-and-her sinks.
In addition, the third level has another two bedrooms, plus a full bath, a linen closet, and a full-size laundry room with a washer, dryer and tankless gas hot water heater for water on demand.
“Having the laundry area near the master suite is a real convenience, and our residents seem to think its location is definitely a plus,” Lovelady added. “And the tankless water heater provides cost efficiency.”
According to Lovelady, all townhome designs at Trieste at Boca are attractive and functional. “It depends on which one meets our buyers’ needs best of all,” he said.
Upon completion, there will be a total of 109 townhomes within the intimate residential enclave. The community is gated with a guardhouse manned 24 hours a day.
Other amenities include an outdoor pool, spa and cabana. Brick walkways, gazebos, cedar trellises and lush landscaping further contribute to the Mediterranean resort look.
“Trieste townhomes are truly value-packed and they ‘live’ like single-family homes, without the upkeep,” Lovelady said. “Our homeowners also enjoy the eastside location, which is central to both downtown Boca Raton and Delray Beach, and just minutes to area beaches and Interstate 95.”
Toll Brothers, a Fortune 500 company and the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, began business in 1967. The company currently operates in 21 states.
