Minto breaks ground for Marina Walk Resort Homes at Harbour Isle
Minto Communities announces that construction has started on the luxury resort home models at Harbour Isle’s Marina Walk. An award-winning, 220-acre island-living community, Harbour Isle is located directly across from Anna Maria Island on Anna Maria Sound in Bradenton, Florida. Marina Walk models are projected to open in January 2016.
Marina Walk is Minto’s newest Harbour Isle neighborhood. The first two neighborhoods, Mangrove Walk and Edgewater Walk featuring luxury coach homes each sold out within one year after opening.
Marina Walk’s Nautical Series Home Collection includes the Mariner, Nautica and Oceana floor plans, plus the Mariner Penthouse. All will have magnificent views of Anna Maria Sound or the Harbour Isle lagoon. Priced from the $500s, these one-story homes range from 1,483 square feet under air to 1,650 square feet under air. Floor plans include two and three bedrooms with two or three bathrooms and feature luxurious master suites with spacious walk-in closets and gourmet kitchens with islands that open to dramatic living room and dining room areas. Expansive screened lanais provide outdoor living space and take full advantage of the spectacular views.
The Beach Club at Harbour Isle is scheduled to open this summer. The two-story, 23,000-square-foot Beach Club features impressive luxury amenities, including a 4,200-square-foot fitness center, second floor Sky Bar Lounge, Cabana Bar, resort-style pool, Jacuzzi, private lounging cabanas, yoga lawn, event lawn and beach recreation area for launching kayaks and paddleboards. The Beach Club architecture complements Harbour Isle’s southern coastal-style architecture and design.
According to Minto Senior Vice President William Bullock, “Minto has taken great care to assure that every design decision made at Harbour Isle maintains the integrity of this rare island location and the surrounding waters. For example, the Beach Club is located on a portion of the island that already provides unobstructed water views of Anna Maria Sound and Anna Maria Island. We were thoughtful on placement of the Beach Club, and chose a location that had a lack of shoreline vegetation, thus minimizing environmental impact.”
Harbour Isle recently received nine 2015 Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association (MSBIA) Parade of Homes awards, including “Best Overall Community.” The community’s gated entry is distinguished by a lighthouse-inspired observation tower that overlooks a Royal Palm-lined streetscape bordering a 38-acre lake at the center of the community. A two-mile walking path encircles the island. In addition to the Beach Club, each neighborhood within Harbour Isle has its own private amenities that include resort-style pool, private cabanas, kayak launch, firepit, outdoor kitchen and more. The Harbour Isle Marina with wet and dry storage, restaurants, and ship’s store is planned to open in 2016.
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 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. For information, call 888-827-3061 or visit mintofla.com.
