A Year in Review

December 4th, 2019

What an amazing year 2019 has been for Shearwater! This new home community in St. Augustine, Florida has grown and changed in some exciting ways over the past 12 months, with a new builder in the Shearwater family and an award for its innovative design.

An Award-Winning Community

Shearwater was honored at this year’s Southeast Building Conference Aurora Awards. Thanks to its thoughtful planning and creative use of land, Shearwater won the Grand Award for Best Community Site Plan. And central to that award-winning site plan are Shearwater’s amenities, which include a lagoon pool, Kayak Club, Fitness Lodge and 15 miles of trails connecting it all. With its modern, resort-style features and preserved natural space surrounding the community, Shearwater provides the perfect nest for families.

Freehold Southeast Division President Andy Smith said, “The recognition by these respected industry leaders tops a year of successes and milestones for … Shearwater.”

Welcoming Toll Brothers

In early 2019, Shearwater welcomed Toll Brothers as a new builder in the community. Ranked the No. 1 Most Admired Home Builder Worldwide in Fortune magazine’s World’s Most Admired Companies® list for five consecutive years, Toll Brothers brings its commitment to quality and customer service to Shearwater. Toll Brothers offers one- and two-story, single-family homes in The Falls neighborhood from the high $300,000s. With a variety of design options, you can customize your home to your tastes. Homes range from four to six bedrooms, two and a half to four and a half baths, and 2,306 to 3,389 square feet. Toll Brothers is known for their quality, craftsmanship and value, and their luxury homes at Shearwater deliver just that.

Townhomes Now Selling

In addition to single-family homes, David Weekley Homes now offers townhomes in Shearwater! Starting from the mid $200,000s, these townhomes are available in one- and two-story floor plans, and range in size from 1,563 to 2,543 square feet. And in the near future, Lennar and Dream Finders Homes will offer even more options for townhomes at Shearwater.

The smaller footprint means there is still plenty of space where you need it, but less maintenance overall. And, of course, the townhomes have access to all the community’s vacation-style amenities, as well as the year-round events put together by Shearwater’s very own Lifestyle Director.

Shearwater is continuing to grow with new residents moving in and getting to know one another. If you’re interested in moving into a new home at Shearwater in the new year, plan your visit to come see it all firsthand, and join the Interest List to receive all the latest news and updates.
