“From the west coast to  WELLEN PARK contact the Westbrooks.” Ray and I have been saying that for some time now. Why, because we are excited about Wellen Park. Why are we excited you ask? What is Wellen Park? Where is Wellen Park? 

The WELLEN PARK is currently the 4th fastest selling planned community in America.  The growth is attributed to the perfect location on the west coast of Florida.  Located just outside of Venice the “City on the Gulf”, North Port with it’s famed Warm Mineral Springs, and Englewood with its trio of Manasota Key Beaches. The WELLEN PARK prime location is on the “Trail” which is Highway 41/Tamiami Trail. Access to I-75 is only 7 miles from WELLEN PARK center. WELLEN PARK has several airports to choose from; Tampa International, Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, Ft. Myers, and Punta Gorda.

Ok, convenient location.  Let’s get to the important part. How close is the WELLEN PARK to the Gulf of Mexico? REALLY CLOSE! There are plenty of beaches to choose from; Venice Beach only 11 miles, Manasota Beaches are only 10 miles, Nokomis Beach is 13 miles. The number one beach in the U.S. Siesta Key  is 25 miles north. Or for additional boating and fishing options Fisherman’s Village and beautiful Charlotte Harbor, which is fed by the Peace River and the Myakka River, is only 23 miles away.  

 What else does WELLEN PARK offer?There are several distinctively unique communities in Wellen Park each offering “livin’ the dream” Florida lifestyle with varying amenities. How do you know which is the right community for you? Well, do you play golf?  How about tennis? Pickle Ball? Bike, jog, swim, kayak? How about bocce ball? Do you enjoy Zumba, Pilates, spin, or yoga? Do you want dining options within your community? Or perhaps you just want to make a pitcher of margaritas and sit pool side. Are neighborhood parties & get-togethers for you? WELLEN PARK has all that and more. WELLEN PARK currently has three districts, WEST VILLAGES (in coral red in the map above)being the original district. The next phase is the PLAYMORE DISTRCT (in blue in the map above), plus the Downtown Wellen (in yellow in the map above) planned to be open first quarter of 2022. Within the West Villages district are several communities,  Sarasota National with its golf course, or is it the nature-focused Grand Palm (offering natural gas for cooking!!), or the Tuscan-inspired Gran Paradiso, or the resort-styled living in IslandWalk, there is Renaissance, or the smaller community of homes The Preserve, Oasis, and the coming soon Tortuga. You don’t have to figure it all out on your own. Ray and I know the communities, we know the amenities, we know the builders.  That is why we say, “contact us”. The builders; Neal Communities, Lennar, DiVosta, M/I Homes, Mattamy, & D.R. Horton have listened to what people want and have created something for everyone.

Call us. Ray and I will walk you through the entire home buying process; from custom homes, to inventory homes, to resale homes. We will schedule your personal tour of the different communities. Then we will negotiate with the builder, and offer knowledge on the builder upgrades that make sense. Ray & I  will be with you at the inspections and walk-thru, and be with you at the closing table. What if you can't be here while your house is being built- no problem- Ray and I will take videos and provide you weekly updates on the construction. It doesn’t cost you anything to have a Realtor with you. In fact, because we know the builders and their incentives, using us could save you some money. Most important the builder, not you, pays our commission. A little-known fact is that the Realtor commission paid often comes out of the builders huge marketing budget.  Having a Realtor with you is simply a plus for you.

But, wait there’s more…

Are you a major league baseball fan? Do you enjoy Spring Training games? You could say that WELLEN PARK is in the heart of the Grapefruit League. First, the Atlanta Braves have a new Spring Training stadium in the heart of WELLEN PARK  CoolToday. Bringing an estimated $1.7 BILLION in revenue to the area during their 30-year signed contract. Of course, there are the other Spring Training camps in the area; the Rays in Port Charlotte, Orioles in Sarasota, Pirates in Bradenton, Phillies in Clearwater, Twins and Red Sox are in Ft. Myers, and the Yankees in Tampa.

The WELLEN PARK already has a grocery store, a few restaurants, and boutiques will be coming soon. For more shopping, restaurants,theaters, and fun options all can be found in Venice, Englewood, Port Charlotte, and Sarasota (only 35 miles north). There are numerous medical facilities to choose from in the region, too. 

Now you know why we are excited about WELLEN PARK. And why Ray and I encourage you to contact the Westbrook's to find out about the west coast and WELLEN PARK.
