SARASOTA, FL (February 28, 2017) - John Cannon Homes continues to prove to be southwest Florida’s recurring Best Builder taking home the Sarasota Herald-Tribune Readers’ Choice award in the Residential category for an unprecedented 25th consecutive year.

Renown for incomparable waterfront designs and luxury custom homes, John Cannon Homes has garnered 345 awards across four counties in over 100 prestigious communities, “but this one from Sarasota and Manatee counties is the most personal for me,” John Cannon, CEO and President, said.

Being chosen Best Residential Builder for the 25th time doesn’t mean you can rest on your laurels. Currently, John Cannon Homes is offering four brand-new models in the Southwest Florida market. They are:

  • The Victoria, in the Concession, is a 5,193 square foot home featuring 3 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths, a complete executive suite, great room, epicurean kitchen, dining room, study, her studio, bonus room, cabana, gazebo and a 3-car garage;

Siesta Enclave: A John Cannon Exclusive

John Cannon’s award-winning take on the Spanish Revival theme is featured in one of his newest ventures “west of Trail,” Siesta Enclave, a 1.5-acre property located between Osprey Avenue and the north bridge to Siesta Key.

“With only eight homes planned, Siesta Enclave is an exciting project as it will be exclusively a John Cannon Homes community,” Cannon said, “and we’re thrilled to offer our clients comfort in knowing they’re part of a community designed and created by our team.” Prices for the home and lot packages in this intimate subdivision will start at around $1 million.

John and Phillipa, along with their team of professionals, have built more than 1,380 custom homes in gated, golf course and waterfront communities throughout southwest Florida. A satisfied client who was recently featured in the current edition of Live Well, John Cannon Homes’ Lifestyle Magazine said, “For John and his team to take what I envisioned, put it to paper and then seeing it become a reality was truly rewarding … I put my heart and soul into this home and they produced a work of art.”

“There are many builders in this area – and we all are proud of our work,” John Cannon said, “but to be recognized by the community, and be awarded “best of the best” 25 times in a row, is one of the highest honors we are proud to accept.”
