Of all the 55+ neighborhoods in Manatee County, Mirabella in Bradenton is one of the most attractive and interesting. Located south of the Palma Sola district, Mirabella is a gated community that sits on the former site of the Village Green golf course. Mirabella holds the distinction of having been recognized for excellence in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) by the Southeast Building Conference; this give prospective home buyers the opportunity to live in one of the most sustainable communities in Southwest Florida.
The tight adherence to LEED standards translates into energy savings for Mirabella homeowners. In 2020, the average electric bill in this neighborhood was around $65 per month; this is considerably lower than the average for Florida households. For homeowners who have installed additional solar panels, the savings are even more substantial since they are actually providing more energy to the Florida Power & Light grid.

Everything in this neighborhood has been designed to make it safe and amenable for residents. Mirabella was built on the higher sections of the old golf course, which means that it is not a flood plain. The homes have hurricane-proof features and the utility cables are buried underground. All homes are equipped with smart thermostats, and they all have luxurious details such as stainless steel appliances, coach lights, decorative moldings, and shiny ceramic floor tiles.
Active seniors will love the swimming pool, clubhouse, indoor gym, spa, walking trails, and dog park.
