Here are our 5 favorite features in the Biscayne floor plan.

1. Large Covered Lanai

A large covered lanai can be one of the best features to have included in your home. A covered lanai can have many benefits including:

  • Space to host gatherings

Having a covered lanai can provide a relaxing outdoor oasis for your family as well as guests that visit your home. It is the perfect gathering location for evenings that you want to spend dining outdoors. The Biscayne floor plan also has a connected half bath to the lanai so you and your guests do not have to worry about going back into the house to use the restroom.

2. Two Walk-In Closets in Master
