Shearwater: An Award-Winning Community

In St. Augustine you’ll find Shearwater, a master-planned community by Freehold Communities that is thoughtfully designed for a modern way of life. Shearwater features stunning home designs, resort-style amenities and plenty of open green space.

Shearwater recently won an award for its innovative site plan design. Aurora Awards are presented annually to outstanding projects across the United States, and this year Shearwater was honored with a Grand Award for Best Community Site Plan at the Southeast Building Conference Aurora Awards.

At the heart of Shearwater is the Kayak Club, home to vacation-style amenities like the Lagoon Pool, multi-lane Lap Pool, three-story waterslide, Lazy Bird River and state-of-the-art Fitness Lodge. Fifteen miles of trails wind throughout the community, passing by ponds and pocket parks, making it easy to commune with nature. Not only that, but the community backs up to preserved natural space, and trails connect to Trout Creek, providing convenient access to waterways beyond Shearwater.

One of the newest additions to Shearwater is The Falls neighborhood, a gated enclave of homes that features a new dog park. The Grand Opening of this neighborhood earned the Excel Aurora Award for Best Community Event, which had hot air balloon rides, kids’ activities, tasty treats and more. And that’s just the beginning at Shearwater. The lifestyle programming at this community is like nothing else you’ll find in the area. With a full-time Lifestyle Director planning a year-round calendar of events and activities, there’s always something fun around the corner – from Food Truck Fridays and coffee socials, to regular fitness clubs and holiday parties.

Shearwater is an award-winning community offering a new kind of living. To learn more about these new homes in Florida, schedule a tour to see it all firsthand, and join our Interest List to receive news and updates.
