Not many residential communities in the United States can boast of being able to simultaneously offer a golf and yachting lifestyle to its residents. It so happens that Waterlefe in Bradenton, a special gated residential community located in East Manatee County, includes a marina and a golf course as part of its amenities.
Waterlefe is only a couple of miles east of I-75, past the River Strand Country Club and just north of State Road 64. The River Club marina is on the banks of the Manatee River, and part of the golf course runs near this section of Manatee County. The marina offers fourteen dock spaces and more than 50 boating slips; the golf course is rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest and offers up to 6,908 yards of par 72 play.
The real estate options at Waterlefe include condominiums, golf villas, single-family homes, and elegant estates. All homes have been completed in the last 15 years, and they mostly follow Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial architectural styles. A sample listing in 2016 is a three-bedroom and two-bathroom condominium unit for $230K, but even single-family homes can be found listed under $300K. The most opulent listings are riverfront mansions with private docking space and seven bedrooms; these listings usually start at one million.
The River Club is the main amenity at Waterlefe; this is where residents and their guests can enjoy the breeze coming from the Manatee River as they lounge in the tiki bar, the gazebos, green areas, and fishing pier. A saline water swimming pool and a fitness center round out the amenities for active residents, but there’s also an on-premises fine dining restaurant to enjoy.
Waterlefe neighbors who enjoy arts, culture and nightlife can reach Downtown Bradenton in about 20 minutes, and Holmes Beach can be reached by driving a couple of more miles to the west.
