Tradewind Estate Homes announces the opening of its new sales center and model home at 3705 Chiquita Boulevard in Cape Coral. The center features the Tradewind I model, a 2,527-square-foot home featuring a classical design with arched windows and rounded columns, and an open floor plan with split bedrooms and a three car garage.

The center is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.

Tradewind, which has been building quality homes in Southwest Florida since 1982, offers seven floor plans ranging in size from 2,168 to 3,600 square feet of living space. Its signature collection homes come with extensive standard features and can be customized per the buyer's needs and desires. The builder also just launched its new Weatherly Collection, a series of four moderately sized homes ranging from 1,760 to 2,038 square feet of living space and priced under $200,000.

The opening of the model and sales center is a positive step for the company, which survived the housing downturn by doing home upgrades, remodels and additions.

"We feel now is the right time to start building new homes again - the market is rebounding," said Tradewind owner Paul Beattie. "We're excited to get back in the new home market."

To start the year right, Tradewind is offering a promotion through March 31st called "We've Got You Covered, Inside and Out."

All buyers who sign a contract by the end of March will receive free window blinds for their entire home, and lawn care for a year.

"We want to do something that takes care of things new homeowners worry about, so providing them with window coverings was a perfect solution," said Beattie. "And we thought it would be great to know you don't have to worry about your lawn maintenance for that first year while you're getting settled."


Tradewind Estate Homes, formerly DePaola Brothers Construction, was founded by brothers Walter and Joseph DePaola in Fall River, Mass. Walter's son Tom, who has over 35 years of experience in the construction industry, and his wife, Debi, brought Tradewind Estate Homes to Southwest Florida and in 1982. Paul Beattie joined the team in 2009. Tradewind specializes in building fine custom homes but also offers moderately priced floor plans. The company also offers complete home renovations, updates to kitchens and baths, and home additions. The corporate office is located at 4818 Coronado Parkway, #1, Cape Coral. The model home center is located at 3705 Chiquita Blvd., Cape Coral. For hours at the model home center and more information about the company, call 239-205-3322.
