A Day in the Life at Shearwater

August 26th, 2020

When moving to a master planned community like Shearwater, you probably wonder what life is like here. Are the people friendly? What’s it like having access to all those amenities? What does a day at Shearwater look like? A great way to get answers to those questions is to visit Shearwater and tour the community firsthand – maybe even chat with some future neighbors while you’re there. But in the meantime, you can check out a few of the things you can look forward to about life at Shearwater below.


Between the modern home designs and ideal location, weekday mornings at Shearwater have never been easier. You could start off the morning with a jog along the 15 miles of trails, hit up the state-of-the-art Fitness Lodge for an early workout or stop by the Kayak Club to visit with friends during a Coffee on the Porch event. Open-concept kitchens make it a breeze for everyone to have breakfast, and convenient drop zones mean all the purses, bags and backpacks are corralled in one place ready for your day. And with the community located in St. Augustine, you can spend a little more time at home and less time commuting.


Maybe you work from home and commuting isn’t an issue for you – but having a workspace at home is. Many homes at Shearwater have the option to include an office, study or extra bedroom that make it simple to work remotely. Plus, homes at Shearwater have spacious, open concept floor plans, so it’s easy to tuck an extra desk into the living or game room if your spouse suddenly needs to work from home as well, or you need a spot for the kids to attend school online.

Not to mention the weekends at Shearwater, which feel more like a vacation than anything. Spend the day at the Kayak Club keeping cool in the resort-style pool or take an exhilarating spin down the three-story waterslide. The Lazy Bird River is the longest lazy river in northeast Florida, and is perfect for relaxing after a long week. The multi-lane lap pool, yoga lawn, Har-Tru tennis courts and a manicured sports field offer plenty of opportunities for some fun exercise. You can even take your furry family members to the dog park for their own afternoon of fun!


Whether it was a long day of work or a long day of fun, there is nothing better than returning to your beautiful new home to relax. Take a long soak in the spa-like owner’s suite before making a delicious dinner in the gourmet kitchen. Or instead of cooking, you can grab a bite during Shearwater’s Food Truck Fridays before joining neighbors at one of the many community events throughout the year, like a movie on the lawn or an adults-only happy hour.
