Michael Saunders & Company is pleased to announce the opening of the new model at Edgewater at Hidden Bay in Osprey, FL. The team will host a special opening-weekend celebration February 17/18. The first building of three at Edgewater at Hidden Bay’s final phase was completed at the end of January, offering unique new condominiums in a gorgeous well-established waterside community. Residents of Hidden Bay enjoy a private neighborhood with vibrant amenities and breathtaking views of the island of Casey Key.
With frontage along scenic Little Sarasota Bay, the coastal-inspired homes in Edgewater at Hidden Bay mark one of the most exciting residential opportunities available today. Twelve of the 16 spacious three-bedroom condominiums in the first building of Edgewater have been purchased, leaving limited availability for buyers who desire a move-in ready home. Twenty residences in the second building have been released for sale, with anticipated completion in early 2019. Homes are priced from the mid $500,000s and range from 1,937 square feet to 2,166 square feet.
“Edgewater at Hidden Bay is popular for so many reasons, but the fact that it is in an already-existing neighborhood with completed amenities is by the far the most important to buyers. There is also great confidence in the market with pending sales for the region up 12 percent in 2017,” said Michael Saunders, Founder and CEO of Michael Saunders & Company.
With 14 gated acres to explore, residents at Edgewater at Hidden Bay have the use of a private pier ideal for fishing or watching stunning sunsets over Casey Key and the Gulf of Mexico. Nearby amenities include a kayak launch, nature trails, a picnic park and a dog park. In addition to a full-service fitness center, the expansive community clubhouse has a catering kitchen with counter seating, game room, an entertainment and media area, a reading library and conference facilities. The clubhouse is located on a sparkling lake, with a boardwalk and beautifully landscaped island. Outdoor amenities include a heated pool with a sundeck, heated hydro-jet spa, tennis and pickle ball courts and an outdoor grilling station and tiki bar.
“There was just something about the appearance that made it feel comfortable and I knew that we would be happy here”, said new resident Joan Habic. “We have met some of the existing residents, and they are just delightful. Everyone was friendly and welcoming.”
Commercially, there are exciting developments taking place in Osprey, which is conveniently located halfway between Sarasota and Venice. Across the street from Hidden Bay, the Bay Street Town Center is experiencing a vibrant resurgence and bringing a live/work/play theme to the area. It houses a variety of shops and restaurants, including a café, jewelry store, bistro, salon, and upstairs office space. A billiards store, women’s clothing store and breakfast and lunch spot are coming soon. Nearby are a WalMart Supercenter and a convenient wet-dry storage marina.
“South Sarasota County has had an explosion of growth, due to residential opportunities and factors such as the new Atlanta Braves training center, and the area is attracting all types of residents and buyers,” said Michael Saunders & Company Commercial Advisor Ben Graham. “It is very encouraging for residents and businesses that Bay Street Town Center is nearly sold out and that commercial development is continuing throughout the region.”
