There are neighborhoods popping up all over St. Johns County and people are flocking to the area in droves. How does one decide where to settle in to their new dream home? That’s what we’re here for and Shearwater is one of our favorite new developments in St. John’s County!
Situated halfway between historic St. Augustine and the bustling city of Jacksonville, Shearwater is part of what is considered a “Vital Community” built around the concepts of Healthy Living, Engagement, Design, Connectivity and Stewardship. As part of being a healthy living community, the community boasts neighborhood parks, walking trails, a kayak and canoe center, a fitness center and resort style pools. For the families that crave some adventure, they don’t even need to leave their backyard this weekend. Paddle through the Trout Pond, take a nature walk through the neighborhood’s extensive hiking trails, or tube down the amenity center’s lazy river. Trust us… it will be easy to keep the family entertained without leaving home!
As part of Shearwater’s engagement they have designed the neighborhood to encourage a community feeling – front porches, a community center and plenty of activities, just to name a few. They have also picked some of the area’s best home developers with gorgeous design and aesthetics as well as green features to support their idea of stewardship in their community. Pick from the beautiful floorplans of Lennar, David Weekley, Richmond American Homes, Mastercraft Builder Group and D.S. Ware Homes.
Not only does the neighborhood want you to stay connected with your neighbors, they want you to stay connected to the rest of the world. They have equipped their community center with Wi-Fi so escape that home office and get some work done while your kids hit the pool. Or maybe you just want to stream your Netflix while you’re on the stationary bike in the state-of-the-art fitness center.
For those of you that are moving to St. Johns County for the school system – this is definitely the neighborhood for you. It has quickly become widely known that St. Johns County is the place to be for the highest quality schools in Florida. For 10 years running, St. Johns County Schools have received an “A” rating. It doesn’t get much better than that and if other schools weren’t close enough, Shearwater is slated to have its own school right in the neighborhood!
