WCI Communities, a premier developer and builder of luxury homes in Florida, is now building homes in Sanctuary Cove, a residential riverfront community being developed in the Palmetto/Ellenton area, just north of Bradenton in Manatee County.
Homes in the community will feature coastal-themed exteriors, with a wide variety of home sizes and price points ranging from the mid $300s to the $700s. Sales will begin after the first of the year, but interested buyers can go to the community website now for more information.
If you’re looking to buy a luxury home with great access to the water in Manatee County, here are a few things to know about the WCI homes in Sanctuary Cove.
New floorplans complement the luxury lifestyle
The Sanctuary Cove community will offer nine floorplans, ranging from the 1,962-square-foot “Grand Cayman,” a ranch-style home with three bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms, to the spacious 2,725-square-foot “Asti,” a two-story home with three bedrooms and 4 ½ bathrooms.
Each of the WCI homes has a two-car garage, and larger floorplans also have a separate garage for golf carts, which will be a popular mode of transportation around the 211-acre community.
Sanctuary Cove offers residents carefree coastal-style living
Amenities include 24-hour security, a resort-style pool, covered grilling areas, and an 8,600-square-foot clubhouse overlooking the harbor with a fitness center, game room, internet café, boat docks and event space.
The community has a beach area for residents to enjoy, and is also a short drive to world-class Gulf beaches such as Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island and Siesta Key. It is also near several parks and nature preserves, such as Palmetto Estuary Nature Preserve and Terra Ceia Aquatic Preserve, for outdoor activities like hiking and kayaking.
Sanctuary Cove homeowners can enjoy a leisurely coastal lifestyle with access to the community’s marina, which will have 210 boat slips and six boat lifts.
The Palmetto area offers a relaxing, small-town environment, while still being a close commute to several busier metro areas, such as Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater to the north and Sarasota to the south. In addition to beaches and boating, the community is convenient to many high-end shopping, dining and entertainment options as well as some of the state’s best golf courses, such as Buffalo Creek Golf Course and River Wilderness Golf & Country Club.
WCI is also in the process of planning a number of other new projects in the area, designed to meet demand from homebuyers looking to live in communities with distinctive amenities.
Sanctuary Cove is located at 6th St. E in the Ellenton area. For more information on WCI homes in Sanctuary Cove, call 877-205-1328 or Sanctuarycovefla.com.
