Mattamy Homes Opening 2nd Phase at West Villages in Venice, FL


Renaissance at West Villages in Venice, Florida has been immensely popular with active adults looking for a community that provides low-maintenance housing, top-notch amenities, and access to local, award-winning medical care. The demand for these properties has increased so heavily that Mattamy Homes has announced it will begin sales for the second phase of Renaissance at West Villages on October 1, 2018.

Move-In Dates Scheduled for Spring 2019

Buyers can expect to move into their new homes as early as the spring of next year. Similar to the first Renaissance phase, single-family homes in this community will be priced from the mid $200s to the high $300s. Attached villas will also be available in the second phase, and potential residents can choose from more than 10 floor plans that run from two-bedroom homes to five-bedroom homes.

These properties, like the first phase, will range in size from 1,539 to 2,533 square feet. Homes with one, two, or three car garages will be offered. It’s a gated community without age restrictions but does provide the amenities and lifestyle active adults crave.

Anticipated Amenities and Lifestyle

The Renaissance at West Villages clubhouse is scheduled to open very soon and has been designed to serve as a meeting place for residents and their guests. It will include a modern zero-entry pool, two tennis courts, two pickleball courts, and two courts for bocce. A full-time activities director will be on staff to plan events, activities, and encourage the formation of groups and clubs.

Residents will enjoy strolling on the well-landscaped grounds and walking or biking past ponds and lakes while looking for birds and native Florida plants. A local dog park is already a popular place for residents to get some exercise with their furry friends.

Living Like the Locals Live

Buying in the second phase of Renaissance at West Villages means being in one of the most beautiful and enjoyable parts of Florida. Venice is known for its beaches and its sunsets. It also has a rich heritage that embraces a history of Native American settlements, farming, and cattle ranches. The Venice Fishing Pier is not far from Renaissance at West Villages and it’s a great place to catch dinner, enjoy a happy hour at Sharky’s on the Pier, which is a lively hangout for both locals and tourists.

In Venice, you can also take a boat tour, visit a working orange grove, and check out Detwiler’s Farm, a local family-run institution where you can buy farm-fresh produce and local groceries. When you’re ready to have some fun at the beach, there are several options. Venice Beach is quiet, perfect for swimming and sunning, and equipped with plenty of free parking. Nokomis Beach is two miles away and gets busy on Wednesday nights when residents get together for a drum circle.
