Sunny weather, idyllic beaches, cultural offerings, and great attractions make Southwest Florida an ideal area for retirees, particularly when talking about gated communities such as The Cascades at Sarasota.
Located in the University Park district just north of Downtown Sarasota, The Cascades is a neighborhood specifically for home buyers who are 55 years of age and older. There are 453 single-family residences with floor plans ranging from two to five bedrooms; the earliest construction dates back to 2005, but local builder Medallion Homes continued delivering new properties through 2012.
The Cascades is a very pretty neighborhood; all homes are built in the Mediterranean style of residential architecture, and the manicured tropical landscaping creates an ambiance similar to a Caribbean resort. This community is perfect for active seniors who want to enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle in a place where the amenities are worthy of an upscale country club.
The clubhouse at The Cascades features an indoor swimming pool next to a fitness center and various lounges where residents can socialize, play card and board games, work on handcrafts, enjoy movies, or just relax. There is also an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, a picnic area, and bocce ball courts. The quality amenities, maintenance, cable television, and internet access are all included in the reasonable association fees.
Homeowners at The Cascades tend to hold on to their properties. Out of more than 450 properties in this community, only a handful come on the market each month. As of mid-2018, you could find a three-bedroom home with two full bathrooms and 1,674 square feet on interior for less than $320K. A five-bedroom property with four bathrooms and more than 3,453 square feet of living space could be negotiated for less than $415K, a very reasonable price considering the proximity to the Mall at University Town Center and the various shopping districts in the vicinity.
The Cascades is surrounded by parks, lakes and golf courses. The cultural attractions of Downtown Sarasota are a short drive away, and the beach at Siesta Key is close enough to visit a few times per week.
