Imagine yourself kayaking along Trout Creek or spending a Saturday afternoon at your amenity center’s Lazy River, and then simply walking to your beautifully designed home set on a preserve lot. Maybe on Sunday you decide to play a game of tennis on the clay courts. On Monday morning, you walk your child to school at an A-rated St. Johns County elementary school. This is just a taste of what life could be like at Shearwater, one of St. Johns newest master-planned communities.
Located near Timberlin Creek Elementary School on the CR 210 corridor, the community is built on five key concepts; healthy living, engagement, design, connectivity, and stewardship. Shearwater boasts 1,500 acres, with 600 acres devoted to natural preserve that include nature trails and kayak launch points on neighboring Trout Creek. Unique features like the lodge-style Kayak Club amenity center and well-appointed playgrounds situated under a canopy of trees celebrate outdoor living.
"Shearwater is more than a residential neighborhood—it’s a lifestyle. We designed Shearwater to provide an abundance of recreational activities that center around active living and community connections. Event and activity programming is developed based upon residents’ desires, and the Kayak Club provides a variety of spaces for residents to connect with each other and enjoy favorite pastimes. All of this and more is available right at residents’ doorsteps. We are thrilled that Shearwater is starting to come to life,” said Jill Flores, Shearwater’s Community Director.
It is hard to believe the beauty of the natural setting until you visit the community itself. Bernard Diggs, a local Realtor with New Diggs Team, frequently brings his clients to Shearwater. “As a real estate agent in St. Johns, it brings me joy when I bring a home buying client to Shearwater and their face says it all upon entering the picturesque community and while sharing with them the future development plans. Immediately my clients get a sense of relief that they have not only found their new home but dream community and lifestyle” says Diggs.
Builders include Mastercraft Builder Group, David Weekley, Lennar & Richmond American Homes. Home designs are geared toward coastal living with architectural styles that blend well into the natural environment and offer a feeling of old Florida.
