Southwest Florida is a haven for active seniors who seek to live their golden years with plenty of comfort, sunshine, safety, and interesting things to do. Even though Sarasota is often mentioned as the best place for American seniors to retire, Bradenton should not be overlooked in this regard, especially when you have communities such as Meadowcroft to explore.
Meadowcroft is a collection of ground-level condominium units and attached villas located across the street from GT Bray Park in the southwest section of Bradenton, not far from Palma Sola Bay, the Village of Cortez, and Bradenton Beach. This location alone is very enticing because it puts you less than five miles away from the beach; moreover, the Cortez Road commercial district just south of Meadowcroft features stores and restaurants such as Wal-Mart, Big Lots, Publix, Golden Corral, Applebee’s, and many others. Having GT Bray Park across the street is a major selling point because this facility has everything from walking trails and tennis courts to athletic fields and even a dog park. If you are a golf enthusiast, you can choose between memberships at the nearby Pinebrook Ironwood Club or the more upscale Bradenton Country club.
Unlike other 55+ communities that resemble apartment complexes or buildings, Meadowcroft offers more of a resort-like ambiance. The Mediterranean style of architecture and the arrangement of properties into separate residential sections make this gated community seem like a series of small villages. A lake provides water views from about 50% of the units, but it also serves as an amenity thanks to a gazebo and pier. Meadowcroft residents and their guests can enjoy other amenities such as a clubhouse, large swimming pool, and tennis courts.
Both property prices and HOA fees are quite affordable in Meadowcroft. In May 2021, a one-bedroom villa with one bathroom and 756 square feet of interior was listed for $140K. As can be expected, listings sell rather quickly, and many of the homeowners start out as seasonal residents before moving down here to retire.
