Find Health and Wellness at Shearwater
October 5th, 2021
Shearwater, a new home community in St. Augustine, Florida, offers a new way of living. As a Vital Community®, Shearwater was specifically designed to promote healthy living in a variety of ways – from connecting with neighbors, to caring for the environment, to promoting a sense of well-being. It’s a wonderful, one-of-a-kind place to live, and here are a few reasons why.
Shearwater has the amenities you’re really looking for, that play off the natural surroundings and encourage a sense of community. The Kayak Club is at the heart of the community, and it’s where you’ll find the state-of-the-art Fitness Lodge, resort-style pool, multi-lane lap pool, Lazy Bird River and the three-story water slide. It’s also where residents meet up to grab a snack at the Wi-Fi café, or bring their laptop to work from the comfortable seating areas.
You’ll find plenty to do outside of the Kayak Club, too. The miles of trails that wind through the community are perfect for a morning jog or a relaxing evening stroll. Have young kids? The KOMPAN playground is just the spot to let them burn off some energy while socializing with friends. Looking for somewhere to meet up? The brand new Outpost has an open-air pavilion with a firepit, and even ziplines! The Kayak Launch, opening later this year, will add even more opportunities for exploration at the Outpost. What about your furry family members? Shearwater’s dog park is a fenced-in, off-leash area that also includes a dog agility course, so there’s something for them to enjoy, too!
Even Shearwater’s builders designed their homes with easy living in mind. Spacious front and back porches bring nature closer to home, so you can relax and watch the birds without going anywhere. Built-in flex spaces, including home offices and studies, allow your home to change as you do – maybe you need a nursery now, but later in life it can transform into a craft space or media room.
The open-concept floor plans do a lot of heavy lifting, too. Rooms are brighter and feel airy and spacious, giving you a sense of well-being. There’s better flow from room to room too, so hectic mornings and busy holidays don’t feel so chaotic. When you bring it all together, you have a home that’s built just for the way you live, making life feel even better.
Many people dream of living in Florida, and for good reason. With nature all around, including beaches and native wetlands, it’s easy to take a deep breath and enjoy some fresh air. And that includes Shearwater’s amenities! Residents can go on strolls down the trails, hit up the tennis court or take advantage of the grills and firepit anytime they want to.
Shearwater’s prime location in St. Augustine makes life easy, too. Everything you need is within reach – mouth-watering restaurants, fun entertainment, great schools, employment hubs and daily necessities like grocery stores, banks and pharmacies. And with Jacksonville nearby, there’s even more to discover just a short drive away.
