Why Choose Shearwater as your Master-Planned Community

December 7th, 2020

In the St. Augustine area, there are many different master planned communities to consider before purchasing a new home. Master planned communities such as Shearwater in northeast Florida are perfect for homeowners looking for something more than the average neighborhood.

When buying a home in a master planned community, you’ll need to think about the type of home you want and whether the homebuilders in the community meet your criteria and needs.

You may want to choose a community that offers planned social activities to encourage neighborhood gatherings. You may also want to choose a community that has a variety of amenity offerings – like a resort-style lagoon pool, a three-story water slide, and a long lazy river to float on. Imagine having access to all of this within a few steps from home.

Master planned communities are also likely to have Homeowner’s Association (HOAs) which are great for making sure all of the amenities and the surrounding area are well-maintained. The HOAs manage general maintenance such as street conditions, walkways, and landscaping to ensure quality and upkeep. Having an HOA take care of your property and the community around you can all contribute to the value of your home.

If you’re seriously thinking about buying a property in one of these planned community neighborhoods, then take a look at Shearwater to get a taste of the world-class experience you’ll get.

Its proximity to the lap pool, sports field, and trail system allows you to move outside and expand your workout routine to the scenic beauty of Trout Creek and the surrounding preserved habitat.
