Shearwater: An Eight-Time Award-Winning Community

Shearwater is starting the new year off strong! This new home community in St. Augustine recently won eight Gold Awards at the 2019 Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) LAUREL Awards.

Held in the beginning of 2020, the LAUREL Awards honored the year’s most outstanding home builders who excelled in sales, merchandising and marketing. The NEFBA recognized Shearwater for its amazing amenity center, the Kayak Club, with a Gold Award for Best Community Amenity and their Lifestyle Director took home the award for Lifestyle Director of the Year. They were also honored with Best Realtor® Promotional Event for their successful Shearwater Living Certification, which is a regular community program held at Shearwater to connect home builders with Realtors in the area. Plus, they won five other Gold Awards for their marketing expertise.

Shearwater’s full-time Lifestyle Director plans year-round activities and programs for residents in the gathering and event spaces at the award-wining Kayak Club. This is just one of the many community amenities that Shearwater offers residents. There is also a state-of-the-art Fitness Lodge and a host of water-related features that make residents feel like they’re on vacation every day of the year, including a resort-style lagoon pool, multi-lane lap pool and winding lazy bird river – the longest lazy river in northeast Florida.

All of the amenities at the heart of the Shearwater community were built for residents who want to have an adventure, explore and spend time together – without having to go far from home. They provide fun and entertainment with a focus on healthy living, connecting families and neighbors through shared experiences and community involvement. Shearwater also offers many opportunities to get out and enjoy nature with preserved open spaces, 15 miles of trails and a community garden. With so many options, the hardest part is deciding what to do first.
