Explore Exceptional Exteriors at Shearwater

Everyone knows “that one house” on the street – it only takes one home to change the feel of the entire neighborhood. That’s why we work closely with our exceptional homebuilders to ensure that every home at Shearwater features designs that reflect the vibrant lifestyle and unique, natural beauty of Florida. From architectural details to front porches to native landscaping, here are five thoughtfully chosen features you’ll find in the homes at Shearwater:

  1. Architecture
    The architecture at Shearwater was designed to reflect the natural beauty of Florida. The Florida Farmhouse is a traditional home, with a simple yet classic sense of style. Florida Bungalow and Craftsman homes feature wide porches perfect for casual southern living. Coastal Traditional homes pay homage to the coast, with tons of natural light. And for a more exotic feel, the Spanish Craftsman has a unique Mediterranean flair with stucco siding and exposed rafters.
  2. Porches
    Most homes at Shearwater feature either a front or back porch, or both. These not only extend your living space, but porch living also helps create a close-knit sense of community. Chat with neighbors out for an evening stroll, read a book with a glass of iced tea, or just sit back and enjoy the sounds of crickets at night.
  3. Landscaping
    Homes at Shearwater feature natural landscaping that not only enhances curb appeal but also the surroundings. Native plantings like gardenia, juniper and palm trees come together to create a lush environment. Plus, all homes at Shearwater include an irrigation system with a timer and rain sensor, so maintaining your lawn has never been easier or more “green”!
  4. Lighting
    Your home should look beautiful and inviting both day and night. At Shearwater, subtle lighting accents entryways and features without overwhelming the streets with light. Exterior lighting is even shielded from adjacent lots, so no need to worry about the neighbor’s light preventing you from getting some much-needed rest.
  5. Driveways and Walkways
    Driveways and walkways at Shearwater are primarily composed of brick paver with a trim pattern. A walkway from the driveway to front door creates interest and adds a level of functionality, and sidewalks make it easy for residents to go on a stroll and enjoy the neighborhood.
