Shearwater community comes to life as natural enclave in St. Augustine
River kayaking, tennis, social events and more await prospective residents of Shearwater, a master-planned community now blossoming in St. Johns County on County Road 210, as families arrive to discover its unique array of assets.
Situated by the Lazy Bird River, the 1,500-acre development’s just-opened Kayak Club features a Wi-Fi café, lap and lagoon pools with a waterslide, playground, fitness center, tennis courts and miles of trails.
Foremost on the planners’ minds was creating a place where residents could find natural and social benefits right at their doorstep: a vision of an interactive, family-friendly community activity.
"My husband and I are building a family and getting settled in St. Johns County after having moved around a lot over the years, and we decided Shearwater was the place for us," Kylene Dean, new resident, said. "Shearwater has a strong family-friendly feel, and it feels like a relaxing family resort at the Kayak Club amenities center."
Model homes are available for tours, with the information center located at 100 Kayak Way, St. Augustine, open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
Home designers currently include David Weekley Homes, Lennar, Richmond American Homes and MasterCraft Builder Group. D.S. Ware and Drees Homes will have model homes available in The Woodlands, Shearwater’s gated neighborhood, in the near future.
