  1. Who doesn’t love a fresh, new, never lived in home?

  3. The new condos at Casa di Fiori also have updated interior designs with wood cabinetry, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and 18” – 20” tile laid on the diagonal in the common areas.

Building Confidence from the Ground Up

Interior Construction View

It’s not surprising that upon first look at Casa di Fiori’s move-in ready condo homes, potential buyers initially focus on the floor plan, location and views, or features such as the color of kitchen cabinets and flooring.

However, more often than not, we encounter astute buyers who want to learn more about the structural aspects of the building,  functional equipment and if we offer a builder warranty.

The developer at Casa di Fiori takes pride in building beautiful and sound condominium homes. Our two-story buildings are crafted from concrete block with steel frame interior walls. The detached garage buildings are crafted from the same materials.

Precast concrete planking is used to separate the first and second floors which helps to limit sound transfer between floors.

16 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) air conditioning systems are installed in each home.

With solid construction and mechanical systems, Casa di Fiori confidently offers a three (3) year builder’s warranty.
