Custom Home Builder Shows Staying Power in Sarasota Herald Tribune’s “Reader’s Choice” for both Sarasota and Manatee Counties

SARASOTA, FL (February 26, 2016)  – The Reader’s Choice Awards, an annual event presented by the Sarasota Herald Tribune was held Thursday evening (March 25). John Cannon Homes once again received the first place award for “Best Residential Builder” in both Sarasota and Manatee Counties for the 24th consecutive year.

“We have won hundreds of design and building awards in our time,” John Cannon, CEO and president, said, “but this one from our community is the most personal for me. There are many builders in this area – and we all are proud of our work – but to be recognized by the community, and be awarded  “best of the best” year after year, is one of the highest honors we are proud to accept.”

John Cannon, along with business partner and wife Phillipa, began building homes in the Preserve at Misty Creek and Plantation Golf & Country Club in the late 1980s. Homes in Lakewood Ranch began to be built in 1995. Cannon is still one of the premier residential home builders in that award-winning planned community and throughout Southwest Florida.

Of the five new models slated for 2016-2017, two will be built in Lakewood Ranch: The Akarra IV, in The Vineyards at The Lake Club and The Talia, in Seacroft at Country Club East. The Islands on the Manatee River will be home to The Corindi, and The Victoria, will be built at The Concession, a luxury, gated 1200-acre community featuring an exquisite golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin. The Ellora will be built in the brand-new development, Indian Lakes, east of Sarasota.  The models, range in size from 3,376sf to 5,193sf.

In addition to building stunning residential homes in planned communities, John Cannon has a solid reputation for “On Your Lot” building having built over 350 waterfront homes on client –owned lots. He also gets high marks for respecting the traditions and environment of established neighborhoods.

The Miah, a 4,225sf Showcase home opened recently in the sought-after “west of the Trail” area of Sarasota, FL is a case in point. One of the first things a visitor to this stylish Spanish Revival experiences is how it complements the existing surrounding homes while Cannon has updated the design style to be contemporary and sophisticated.

John Cannon Homes continues to offer his customers a high-end interactive experience with a newly expanded design center where customers are able to sit down with professional staff and touch, see and feel materials they can choose for their custom homes. Along with competitive pricing and attention to detail, and first-class reputation for excellence in design and building, the readers of the Sarasota Herald Tribune in both Sarasota and Manatee counties have signaled their resounding approval, now for 24 consecutive years.
