Watercrest in Venice is a carefully planned residential development of 423 homes located near the intersection between Jacaranda Boulevard and I-75. The developer of this gated community is one of the key investors in the Wellen Park project between Venice and North Port, which you may also known as the West Villages.
If you are familiar with the ambiance of upscale Caribbean resorts, you will get a similar vibe from the moment you arrive at the gate. This is a community built by Lennar/WCI, the most recognized brands developing resort-like neighborhoods in Florida. The architectural style is inspired by West Indies design with some details borrowed from Key West homes. The tropical landscaping is manicured, and the amenities would look right at home in places such as Aruba.
Watercrest is a stunning neighborhood where the homes compete against the amenities in terms of style. In late 2020, pricing started at $275K for a two-bedroom detached villa with two bathrooms and a two-car garage; this is a property with lake views that you can enjoy from the screened lanai. All properties in Watercrest are hurricane-proof, and they are packed with luxury features such as crown molding, granite countertops, and dens that you can enter through double French doors.
At the Watercrest clubhouse, which you can reserve for social events, you will find a lagoon-shaped swimming pool with a zero-entry section, an exercise center with modern fitness machines, a lounge area with a bar, and a shuffle board playing area.
Just beyond the gate of Watercrest you can enjoy plenty of shopping and dining options such as Cracker Barrel, BrewBurgers, and convenience stores. Even closer to the south you will find the Jacaranda Commons shopping plaza with a Publix supermarket and CVS Pharmacy plus a British pub and an upscale cafe. The Historic Downtown Venice district is just five miles to the west, and Venice Beach is just down the road from this tourism district, but you can always visit the less crowded Nokomis Beach.
