With so many gated communities to choose from in Venice, where can prospective home buyers find the best investments? In 2021, the suburban development trend is taking place close to the Myakka River in the eastern sections of the city; this is where you will find Woodlands in Venice, an upscale project featuring new models provided by Meritage Homes and Toll Brothers.
Woodlands is a residential project that began construction in 2020. As its name suggests, this gated community has been platted on wooded Florida land, which means that the 236 single-family residences herein are surrounded by lush greenbelt sections. Lakes, winding streets, and tropical landscaping add to the woodsy ambiance of this neighborhood; furthermore, residents and guests enjoy a number of amenities that make the Woodlands a family-friendly community.
All properties at Woodlands are brand-new. The models selected by the two builders are congruent with the Venice residential style, which means that they combine Tuscan and Mediterranean designs. The floor plans, which range between 1,500 and 2,316 square feet of living space, feature at least three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The Toll Brothers models tend to be a bit more elaborate in terms of curb appeal, but Meritage is a builder known for energy efficiency and quality construction. As of March 2021, prices started around $380K for the smaller floor plans. Woodlands is among the Venice communities where market analysts expect nice value appreciation this year.
The amenities in Woodlands are worthy of Palmer Ranch neighborhoods or Lakewood Ranch villages. The swimming pool and clubhouse area is designed like a Caribbean resort. With the new equipment in the fitness center, you will be able to cancel your gym membership. Pickle ball courts and a dog park round out the amenities. Best of all, lawn and outdoor maintenance are included in the very reasonable HOA fees.
Some of the family-friendly attractions located just beyond the Woodlands gate include the Sleeping Turtles Preserve and Myakka River State Park. The beaches of Venice and Nokomis are about seven miles away. Your best bet for shopping is located a couple of miles south at the Jacaranda Commons shopping plaza, where you will find a Publix supermarket, CVS Pharmacy, UPS Store, restaurants, and more.
