Southshore Bay is bringing a lagoon-inspired community to the Tampa area. Medley will be the gated 55+ community in this highly-anticipated neighborhood.

Good news for potential homebuyers looking for a 55+ lagoon-inspired community just outside of Tampa in Wimauma, Florida. One of the area's newest 55+ communities, Medley at Southshore Bay, will have models open for touring this month.

Built by Lennar Homes, this gated active adult community will have 655 single-family and attached homes available to buyers once construction is complete. The price range for these homes will be from the high $100s to the mid $300s. There are lots of amenities and attractions underway in this community, the best one being the clear blue lagoon.

Developing Southshore Bay

The 55+ Medley community is part of a larger Southshore Bay development, which will include a total of 2,800 homes. Outside of the age-restricted area, residents have already begun moving into the family-friendly homes constructed by D.R. Horton and Holiday.

Living in Wimauma, Florida

The Tampa area is a well-known retreat for active adults who love the sunshine, the shopping, the golf, and the beach. There are also museums, fine dining, fishing, boating, and every professional sport you can imagine. Wimauma is located about half an hour to the south of the city and comes with its own culture and experiences.

If nature appeals to you, Little Manatee River State Park is in Wimauma, and it's a great place for hiking, camping, horseback riding, or canoeing. Also worth a visit is Berry Bay Farms, especially during the strawberry season. The Manatee Viewing Center in Ruskin is just a 15-minute drive, and especially fun in the winter when the manatees gather outside the power plant to enjoy the warmer water.
