When choosing which Florida retirement communities to tour, location, price, amenities, and lifestyle should be key factors—which is why today we’re featuring one of the liveliest retirement communities in Florida: Sweetwater by Del Webb.
Sweetwater by Del Webb welcomes active adults aged 55+ to Northeast Florida’s bustling Jacksonville area. It offers fantastic on-site amenities, as well as convenient access to local shopping districts, attractions, and services. This lovely community also meets the needs of many different homeowners with a diverse mix of residences including condos, attached villas, and single-family homes.
Set just 15 minutes from Downtown Jacksonville, the prime location of this Florida active adult community is the ideal destination. Residents can easily head into the city for a variety of cultural and recreational attractions, including theatres, museums, and sports venues. St. Johns Town Center, one of the area’s popular shopping centers, is only five minutes away. The beach is also only seven miles from the community’s main gates.
Of course, Sweetwater has plenty of on-site amenities to offer as well. The 22,000 square-foot clubhouse hosts numerous resort-style activities. The spacious fitness center features state-of-the-art cardiovascular and strength-training equipment, an aerobics studio, an indoor lap pool, and a heated whirlpool. Hobby and game rooms feature dedicated areas for card games or artistic pursuits, while the library is a great place to read or surf the Internet. A large ballroom is perfect for many social activities or community events.
As is common at most Florida retirement communities, Sweetwater’s amenities continue outdoors with features like tennis facilities, bocce ball courts, and shuffleboard. The large outdoor swimming pool includes a beach-entry area, and its spacious deck is a great place to soak up some Florida sunshine. The manicured grounds at Sweetwater include scenic lakes, natural park space, and a lovely covered picnic pavilion.
Del Webb began developing Sweetwater in 2005 and new construction condos and carriage homes are still available today. Condominiums are available in two different four-story buildings: Monte Verde and Monte Azul.
Floor plans at Monte Verde feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a den, and a covered lanai. The condos at Monte Azul do not have dens, but their designs do include kitchens with breakfast nooks. Sweetwater’s carriage homes are attached four-in-a-row, with separate upstairs and downstairs residences, for a total of eight residences in each structure. Carriage homes each feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a den, and an attached one-car garage.
There are a few different layouts available and the floor plans range in size from 1,536 to 1,857 square feet. While Sweetwater’s single-family homes have all been constructed, homeowners can find a wide variety of available resale homes. These low-maintenance homes were built in five different floor plans, including both one- and two-story designs. They feature layouts with first-floor master bedroom suites, covered lanais, and two-car garages.
Active adults who are interested in Sweetwater can experience the community by arranging an Explore Del Webb adventure. This special visit includes a minimum two-night stay and a pass to try out the community’s resort-style amenities. This affordable visit is a fun way to see if Sweetwater is the right place to purchase your next home.
