Tra Ponti Villaggio New Homes | Venice FL | David Barr Realtor

Image
Tra Ponti Villaggio is a new construction community of courtyard homes.  There's also 4 ICW-facing town homes, which have been sold.




The remaining units are adjacent to the Venice Avenue bridge.  High build quality in the already built homes will likely prevent traffic noise from being a nuisance.

The courtyard areas are perfect for a private pool, while some owners have opted for a grassy spot for their pets.  Split bedroom, open concept floor plans and high ceilings make Tra Ponti Villaggio a nice choice for those who want more of an urban living experience.

Tra Ponti Villaggio is just over the bridge from the southern entrance to The Legacy Trail.  You can also bike or walk to Shamrock Park to the south on The Venetian Waterway Park.

Remember, new construction homes cost the same as the advertised price, when you're working with your own Realtor.  Contact me for a tour.

This week I visited Watercrest to take a look at the new construction progress and get some updated video of the community.

Watercrest is a bit unique when it comes to Venice FL new homes, because there's no CDD fees and very low HOA and condo fees for the paired villas.





The paired villas start in the low $200's, and single family homes start in the low $300's.  
Watercrest is located on Jacaranda Blvd at the Venice Avenue traffic circle, just south of I-75.  Remember, new homes cost the same when you're working with your own Realtor.

Aria New Homes for Sale | Venice FL | David Barr Realtor

Here's an update on Aria, a new home community adjacent to Milano off Jacaranda Blvd in Venice FL.

Aria is being built by Neal Communities, and will feature it's Signature Series upscale homes.  Expect larger homes than Milano, with 3 or 4 bedrooms, 3 car garages, and slightly larger lots.  I expect that Aria's club house and pool will be a bit larger and more upscale than Milano's, as well.






With the rate of progress I'm seeing with construction of the model homes, home sites may be released soon, with the model homes possibly opening in the late Spring 2019.
