Celebration is an idyllic Disney-inspired community offering homeowners small town charm at the doorstep of Walt Disney World. The Celebration Company sold its final residential village to Mattamy Homes that will feature 350 acres of single-family homes, apartments, a K-5 school, neighborhood commercial space, and lots of green spaces and parks.
Since founding the company in 1978, Peter Gilgan wanted to build more than a house. He envisioned creating something unique and began to study home design concepts from across North America. He was captivated by the New Urbanism movement which became the essence of his business model: homes with individual character, designed for friendlier communities, with tree-lined streets, front porches, walking and bike trails, and lots of green spaces and parks.
Mattamy built their very first home in 1978 and has since become the largest privately owned homebuilder in North America having built 90,000 homes across the United States.
“Community Is Our Home”
They believe communities are just as important as the homes they build. That’s why each neighborhood not only offers parks and play areas, but access to local health care, education, and recreational facilities. They are also proud to give back and make an everlasting impact in the very communities in which they build.
