David Barr's blog about new homes for sale in Sarasota, Venice, and Lakewood Ranch. I specialize in helping home buyers locate and purchase new construction homes from the 40 new construction neighborhoods I serve in two of the top 5 master planned communities in the country.
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.

I have a Beachwalk update for you. 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 lakewoodranchd
If you're interested in a new home in The West Villages in Venice FL, Manasota Key Beach is one of 5 nearby options. Manasota Beach Road will extend to Tamiami Trail, running south of Islandwalk and connecting with West Villages Parkway, eventual home to the Atlanta Braves spring training facility and the planned West Villages town center. Residents of The West Villages can take advantage of this boat launch and parking area at the foot of the north Manasota Key bridge, which were recently upgraded.
