Sawgrass Real Estate for Sale – Venice, Florida 34292


A tropical Florida lifestyle intimately woven with the exquisite setting of Waterford Golf Club in northeast Venice, Florida, is the main selling point for the gated Sawgrass community. Consisting of 568 home sites, this neighborhood was developed around the lakes, greens and fairways of Waterford’s nine-hole Sawgrass layout which lent its brand name to this residential property.

Residential construction at Sawgrass began in the late 1990s, contributing over the years a superb selection of maintenance-free villas and single family residences in listings of Venice homes for sale. Seasoned homebuilders, like Taylor Woodrow, Waterford Builders and J & J Builders, were among the companies initially involved in the property’s development which came well after the golf links’ opening in 1989.

Superior home builds


Sawgrass experienced a slowdown in new home construction in 2006 leading up to the housing downtown during the last Great Recession. Homebuilding stepped up around 2007, nonetheless, as regional builder Neal started constructing new homes in that year on 70 of the remaining 109 Sawgrass lots.

Typical residences in this community are of block and stucco construction with barrel tile roofs. Their floor plans range from approximately 1,700 to about 3,400 square feet, mostly designed with three bedrooms and three baths, and feature at least a two-car garage. Expect available properties in this neighborhood to be listed among Venice homes for sale in the $300s- $500s price range.

Well-designed open floor plans along with well-planned master suites and kitchens are standard attractions for Sawgrass homes for sale. As appealing, available residences in this community bring out the contemporary Florida lifestyle with their high ceilings and open lanais. Select homes also feature spacious bathrooms with large walk-in showers with separate whirlpool tubs.

Refreshing vistas of the golf course, greenbelt preserves and lakes form the common landscaping theme for all Sawgrass homes for sale. Additionally, tall and mature palm trees line all streets of this neighborhood, thus enhancing further the curb appeal of its residences.

Club privileges


A social membership to the Waterford Golf Club comes with Sawgrass homeownership. The club’s amenities for its members include a fitness center with state of the art equipment, a 70-foot community swimming pool, tennis courts and a large venue for community activities.

For golfing privileges, homeowners can either pay an additional membership fee or just choose paying the green fees on a per-play or daily basis. The 27-hole Waterford notably offers a unique golf experience, as play in its nine-hole Sawgrass course can be paired with either the Gleneagles or Turnberry, the two other layouts in this golf club. With this setup, golfers of all levels can readily enjoy an 18-hole tour of Waterford’s links. For further play variety and challenge, the nearby Capri Isles Golf Club, which was renovated in 2003, fits the bill perfectly.

Outside of the Waterford and Capri Isles Golf Clubs, other enticing lifestyles options can be conveniently accessed by Sawgrass residents. Located just off Auburn Road, perpendicular to East Venice Avenue, their community is only a short drive away not only from popular shopping and dining establishments, such as those at the Villa Venezia Plaza. More life and leisure hubs are just as conveniently accessible at the historic downtown area and its adjoining Gulf Coast beaches.
