Bradenton, FL (August 17, 2016) — Minto Communities is hosting a public grand opening event for the introduction of phase II of Edgewater Walk at Harbour Isle on Saturday, August 27, and Sunday, August 28, from Noon to 4 p.m. The event includes model tours, live music, complimentary cocktails and refreshments and trolley tours of the community.
Harbour Isle is Minto’s award-winning 220-acre island living community located directly across from Anna Maria Island on Anna Maria Sound in Bradenton, Florida. Minto has received many awards for Harbour Isle, including the 2016 Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association (MSBIA) Parade of Homes awards for “Best Overall Community” and “Best Amenities.” This is the fifth year in a row that Harbour Isle has received these awards for Harbour Isle. Minto also received an Aurora Award at the 2016 Southeast Building Conference presented by the Southeast Building Council for the Beach Club at Harbour Isle for Best Recreational Facility.
Edgewater Walk Phase II is the final phase of island coach homes to be built at Harbour Isle, and will be released for sale August 18. Phase II will include 13 buildings with a total of 39 coach homes — many with spectacular waterfront views.
Each coach home building includes a one-story, two-story and three-story coach home, ranging in size from 1,987 square feet under air to 2,948 square feet under air. All include a two-car garage and private elevator for two and three story homes. Homes are priced from the $500s. Homebuyers can select from nine coach home floor plans that are designed to accommodate an active island lifestyle.
Three island coach home models are available for viewing: the Andros, Abaco and Harbour Grand Retreat. The Andros features two bedrooms, three baths, den, sunroom and two-car garage with 1,987 square feet under air. The Abaco features three bedrooms, three baths, den, sunroom and two-car garage with 2,214 square feet under air. The Harbour Grand Retreat features three bedrooms, three baths, den, sunroom, observatory, retreat and two-car garage with 2,948 square feet under air.
Harbour Isle coach homes are Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certified — the highest rating for green features such as energy efficiency, enhanced indoor air quality, water efficiency and sustainable use of materials and land.
Harbour Isle’s distinctive and charming southern coastal, resort-style design and architecture include a lighthouse-like observation tower at the community’s gated entrance that sets the pace for the architectural statements throughout the community. A Royal Palm-lined streetscape borders a 38-acre lake at the center of the community, and the colorful island coach homes complete an inviting picture of relaxed seaside living.
Harbour Isle residents enjoy an active lifestyle. The 23,000 square-foot Beach Club at Harbour Isle opens to breathtaking views of Anna Maria Sound and the Intracoastal Waterway. Impressive luxury amenities include a 4,200-square-foot fitness center, second floor Sky Bar Lounge with billiards area and second floor balcony for outdoor dining. Other Club amenities include a covered Cabana Bar, resort-style swimming pool, Jacuzzi, private lounging cabanas, yoga lawn, event lawn and beach recreation for launching kayaks and paddleboards.
Harbour Isle has been developed without utilizing Community Development District (CDD) funding. This means residents won't see annual CDD assessments on their tax bill, which saves them thousands of dollars over the life of their home.
Harbour Isle is located at 12300 Manatee Avenue West in Bradenton, Florida. The Harbour Isle sales center is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
