Watercrest, Venice FL's newest new home community
Watercrest in Venice FL is so new, it's not even on the builder' website.
If you've noticed the construction and concrete privacy wall going up on the northeast corner of the Jacaranda traffic circle, you've seen the future location of Watercrest.
As your Venice FL new home specialist, it's my job to keep you up to date on the latest news. Watercrest is planned to have 190 single family homes, with prices estimated to start in the mid $300's. Construction is already starting on the model home and sales office.
The builder (Divosta) is estimating Beachwalk will be open for pre-sales in fall of 2020. This means you can reserve your home site with a refundable deposit.
In case you haven't heard about Beachwalk, it's the sister community to Divosta's highly popular Islandwalk in Venice. I believe Beachwalk will be as popular, if not more, mostly due to it's location value. It's only 2.5 miles from Manasota Key beach via the northern bridge on Manasota Beach Road.
Beachwalk will not have the extensive lake views of Islandwalk, but a restaurant and bar and grill are planned here. I expect an amenities center that will closely match the clubhouse and pool in Islandwalk.
Model homes for Beachwalk won't be completed by the time they open for pre-sales. Pulte, which owns Divosta and Del Webb, just opened a brand new model park in Del Webb Lakewood Ranch. You can view my photo gallery of these new floor plans at lakewoodranchdavid.com/d…
Did you know that working with your own Realtor costs you nothing if you're buying a new construction home?
One of the advantages of working with your own Realtor when buying a new home in The West Villages is that I can compile information on all the new home communities, and put that information on my real estate website at davidbarrhomes.com.
You don't have to click on all the different builder websites for the different communities, uncertain that you found them all.
Interested in other master planned communities nearby? I also serve Lakewood Ranch, and the 100% solar-powered Babcock Ranch in south Charlotte County, a little over an hour south of The West Villages.
Earlier this month ( January 2019), I issued an e-newsletter highlighting 6 new home communities in the Sarasota area.
Add one more to the list. Promenade Estates is coming soon to the Palmer Ranch area.
Located on Honore Avenue, south of Central Sarasota Parkway and directly across from Hammock Preserve, there's not much information available yet.
Existing competing new home communities in Palmer Ranch offer paired villas, some town homes, and upscale single family homes, most of which I expect will be available in Promenade Estates. The builder, DR Horton, has a luxury home series called Emerald Homes, which I expect will occupy a section of the site, much like they are doing in Toscana Isles in nearby Nokomis/North Venice.
I'll be updating my website page for Promenade Estates with the latest information as it becomes available. Bookmark my page or contact me for a tour of Sarasota new homes.
