The three-bedroom Agostino is the largest single-family home floor plan at Tidewater Preserve, with 2,718 square feet of air-conditioned living space, while its total 3,994 square feet incorporates a “Florida basement” that the homebuyers can convert into a one-car garage.

Late last month, WCI Communities opened the new home sales center at Westshore Yacht Club, which includes the 15,000-square-foot Bay Club that offers a 149-slip marina, waterfront dining, a fitness center, day spa and resort-style pool.

The Agostino features an open floor plan between great room, dining and kitchen, and the home offers a den, three full baths and a powder room. The owner’s suite features his-and-her walk-in closets and dual vanities in the bathroom. Each of the guest rooms features a private bath.

Buyers can also use the den as a fourth bedroom and convert a lanai storage space into a second half-bath. The home is priced from $329,990.

Two additional single-family Classic Series homes offer 2,398 and 2,643 square feet of living area priced from $299,990.

Each home has been designed to showcase Tidewater Preserve’s surrounding water and nature vistas and offer options that allow buyers to convert dens or libraries into bedrooms and lanai storage areas into cabana baths. Homes are available in two exterior elevations.

Each of the Classic Series homes offers a great room, two-car garage, tray ceilings in select rooms, formal foyer, carpet and tile flooring, and a kitchen with breakfast bar islands. Owner’s suites feature at least one walk-in closet, and bathrooms have a separate tub and shower and a private water closet.

WCI plans to introduce three additional single-family riverfront home designs later this summer at Tidewater Preserve.

Additional floor plan options currently available at Tidewater Preserve offer two, three and four bedrooms, two-car garages, owner’s retreats and gourmet kitchens. Several homes also offer dens and flex rooms designed to fulfill a variety of lifestyle scenarios and appeal to primary, retirement and second-home buyers.

Being situated in a location near the Gulf of Mexico beaches, Tidewater Preserve features approximately two miles of frontage along the Manatee River, multiple lakes and a 50-acre lagoon.

Tidewater Preserve’s Port & Court Club offers a three-court tennis complex, resident activities and special events. The community’s River Walk provides walking, hiking and jogging opportunities along nature trails and boardwalks skirting the river and several conservation areas.

The planned River Club will offer additional recreational amenities and gathering spaces, including a fitness center, resort-style pool and sand volleyball court.

Tidewater Preserve offers new homes in Bradenton, Florida, with carriage homes, grand villas and Classic Series single-family homes starting at $184,990. Located just 15 miles from Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, the nearby I-75 corridor provides easy access to numerous arts and entertainment venues in Sarasota, as well as the professional sporting events and international shopping of the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg area.

The Tidewater Preserve Welcome Center is located at 4700 Tidewater Preserve Blvd. From I-75, take exit 220, travel two miles west on SR 64, and turn right at 48th Street Court.
