The most common way to purchase a new home is typically in an entirely new community, meaning that the amenities and new home construction is happening simultaneously. It can be considered a major plus when a community with established amenities, residents already living there and a community-like lifestyle is coupled with new construction.
Edgewater at Hidden Bay is one such place consisting of three brand-new waterfront condominium buildings upon final completion, offering 52 condominium residences.
The neighborhood is being developed on the remaining land in the existing neighborhood of Hidden Bay. presenting a rare opportunity for new construction in the Sarasota real estate market. This established, 14-acre gated condominium community is located in Osprey, Florida on picturesque Little Sarasota Bay, a popular recreational waterway that separates the mainland from Casey Key, Siesta Key and the Gulf of Mexico. The condominium community is conveniently located 15 minutes from downtown Sarasota to the north and picturesque Venice to the south.
One of the biggest advantages of buying a home in an existing community, especially a Florida condominium, is that all the amenities are already in place. Buyers in some new communities may have to wait several months or years for all of the amenities to come on line.
Edgewater’s amenities are not only up and running but have been completely remodeled. The clubhouse features a heated pool and spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, grand salon with catering kitchen, card room, tennis and pickleball courts, a barbecue area, and a tiki bar.
Residents can also stroll down a boardwalk to a private fishing pier that extends out into the bay, launch a kayak or paddle the shoreline in their canoe.
The community is also located near many marinas, offering dry-dock and boat lift options for your boating lifestyle.
New home communities come with new landscaping and streetscapes that will take 10 to 20 years to mature. That’s not the case at Edgewater at Hidden Bay.
From the moment residents drive through the entrance, tall palm trees and live oaks draped in moss frame both sides of the road, casting shadows in all directions. Even the landscaping around the clubhouse provides shade where shade is needed, while mature trees on an island in the middle of the lake and accessible by a boardwalk, offers the ideal place for a respite for both mind and soul.
For the ultimate escape, the elevated boardwalk that leads to the bay’s shoreline winds its way through a mature, natural preserve that provides homes for many of the area’s feathered and furry natives.
Buying in an existing community means the majority of owners are already there – and in most cases – have been there for years, making it easy to quickly make new friends.
Edgewater’s clubhouse is the gathering spot for many resident parties often extending from the grand salon with catering kitchen, to the outdoor barbecue area, and under the roof of the tiki bar. Lifelong friendships are formed over an ice-cold cocktail and a delicious meal.
Amenities already in place mean instant fun and relaxation. Mature trees and landscaping that have been growing for years create picture-perfect vistas. Affable neighbors, along with a social centerpiece, help convert strangers into friends. These are a few of the advantages of buying a new home in an established condominium community.
