Good news for home buyers looking for new construction deals in 2019. Neal Communities, an award-winning developer that has built more than 14,000 homes in Southwest Florida, has started construction of Poinciana in Bradenton, a new gated community located near the upscale University Park district of Manatee County. Poinciana is part of an ongoing residential development trend that focuses on smaller and intimate communities that combine luxury, amenities, convenience, and a maintenance-free lifestyle.
Located near the corner of Lockwood Ridge Road and Honore Avenue, just east of Ward Lake, Poinciana sits on 36 acres of of wetlands. As is the norm with projects developed by Neal Communities, a large portion of Poinciana will be set aside as nature preserves for the enjoyment of residents. This neighborhood will consist of 84 paired villas featuring two floor plans: the Crystal Sand and Tidewater, both inspired by the architectural styles of Caribbean beach resorts.
The Crystal Sand model offers two bedrooms and two full bathrooms built on 1,434 square feet of living space. The Tidewater floor plan is more spacious at 1,524 square feet of interior. Both models have extras such as covered lanais and a large den that can be converted into a home office. Since the entrances to the paired villas are located on the opposite side of the two-car garages, the privacy of residents and guests is assured.
Community amenities will include a swimming pool with clubhouse and an outdoor recreation space plus a few nature trails. As of April 2019, introductory prices at Poinciana are planned to start in the mid-$200K range, but this will likely increase quickly once a few units are sold.
Poinciana’s premium location makes it very attractive for prospective buyers who need to commute to either Bradenton or Sarasota. The University Walk and Lockwood Commons shopping centers, both anchored by Publix supermarkets, are about six minutes away; furthermore, the Mall at University Town Center is about 15 minutes away. The beaches of Siesta Key, Longboat Key and Manatee County are close enough to enjoy every weekend.
