A master-planned community within the city limits of St. Augustine has begun construction of its Residents’ Club designed for the active Florida homebuyer.
Madeira, located just north of the St. Augustine City Gates in St. Johns County, features a clubhouse, pool, fitness center and an expansive outdoor gathering area — a concept similiar in some to Peter Rummel’s health-focused residential development Healthy Town concept.
“We are excited about the plans for the Residents’ Club,” said Victoria Robbins, exclusive agent for elacora Northeast Florida. “It has been designed for the Florida homebuyer. The large pool, surrounding deck and adjacent party plaza with a fire pit will delight the residents of Madeira.”
Built by elacora, the homes range from 1,767 to 2,484 square feet and offer six open floor plans with many flex options. Three distinct elevation styles (Mediterranean, Tuscan and Spanish), all featuring tile roofs, are priced from the mid $200s. The community is sited on more than 1,000 acres of green space and preserved natural areas. Ten additional homes are currently under construction and will be available for move-in this year.
“We expect record sales for these homes which come complete with solar panels, lawn maintenance and security system monitoring for 12 months after closing,” Robbins said.
