The beautiful and quaint city of Venice, Florida is located on the Gulf of Mexico, just south of Sarasota. The community of Waterford in Venice was developed just over twenty years ago. Its six hundred forty homes lie at the north end of Capri Isles Boulevard within easy reach of Sarasota malls, museums, opera, ballet and theaters - although for theater entertainment you can't beat Venice Theater! Venice, Nokomis and Caspersen beaches are close at hand, as are the North and South jetties, where residents often go to watch the beautiful sunsets, cast a line into the gulf, watch the many pelicans catch their meals, or hope to glimpse the many dolphins that seem to like playing there.
Many homes abut the Waterford Golf Club, which offers 27 challenging holes of championship golf. About one third of the homes enjoy lake views. The neighborhoods offer 3- and 4- bedroom homes, as well as maintenance-free villas and full-sized homes that are easily managed by the part-time resident. Most homes have pools, and all residents have access to the heated pool and spa at the Sports Center. Almost all homes are owner-occupied, but occasionally a 3-month or longer rental is available.
The Waterford Master Owners Association has a board of seven directors, and the Board employs a management company to assist in community management. There are many committees and volunteers actively engaged in running the community, and this helps keep annual fees low. Waterford is a deed-restricted community, and the Architectural Control Committee actively works to maintain the community standards. Thus, all homes are maintained in attractive condition.
Activities for residents abound. Many residents are golfers and play at Waterford or one of the many nearby courses. The tennis group is fortunate to have four well-maintained Har Tru courts. They socialize monthly and welcome new players. The main pool and spa are heated and cooled using geothermal energy, and the pool is maintained at a comfortable temperature year-round. Many maintenance-free neighborhoods also have a pool and socializing there at 5 pm is frequent.
In the recently redecorated Sports Club, to which every resident belongs, we have well-maintained workout equipment, an honor library, wireless Internet access, a 60” high definition TV, and numerous card tables and chairs for social events. Most neighborhoods hold parties in the sports club once a month. Bridge, mahjongg and exercise classes meet there weekly.
Waterford, a most welcoming community, is in its prime now and gets better every year!
