Movers and Shakers Movers and Shakers: Minto Presents Luxury by the Bay Grand Opening for Harbour Isle Beach Club on August 22
SARASOTA — Minto Communities presents Luxury by the Bay — a grand opening celebration for the new Harbour Isle Beach Club — on Saturday, August 22, from 6-9 p.m. The public is invited. However, reservations are required for admittance by calling (941) 896-4826.
Harbour Isle is an award-winning, 220-acre private island community by Minto, located directly across from Anna Maria Island on Anna Maria Sound in Bradenton, Florida.
Luxury by the Bay will include tours of the Harbour Isle Beach Club, a luxury yacht presented by Galati Yacht Sales; luxury car showcase presented by Lamborghini Sarasota; The Aerial Dragons aerial artists; food by Fun with Food Catering, and wine tasting presented by Achaval Ferrer and Decant Online.
The two-story, 23,000-square-foot Beach Club is distinguished by striking architectural details that echo the community’s entrance statement and southern coastal-style architecture. Royal Palms border the center lawn that leads to the Club’s entrance, and a lighthouse-style wing further enhances the Club’s island ambiance.
The social hub of Harbour Isle, the Beach Club includes spacious first and second floor gathering areas with seating and conversation areas. Wrap-around windows and glass doors open to views of Anna Maria Sound and the Intracoastal Waterway. A Sky Bar with billiards area and large balcony with seating for outdoor dining are on the second floor.
An adjoining wing of the Beach Club houses a 4,200-square-foot fitness center that features state-of-the-art equipment, high, detailed ceilings, and wrap-around windows that also look out to views of Anna Maria Sound. Outside, a resort-style swimming pool, spa, covered Cabana Bar, beach recreation area, yoga lawn, event lawn and kayak and paddleboard launch complete the picture of ideal island living.
Three new luxury resort home models are projected to open in January 2016 in Marina Walk, Minto’s third Harbour Isle neighborhood. Minto’s first two Harbour Isle neighborhoods, Mangrove Walk and cEdgewater Walk, each sold out quickly after opening.
Marina Walk’s Nautical Series Home Collection includes the Mariner, Nautica and Oceana floor plans, plus the Mariner Penthouse, featuring magnificent views of Anna Maria Sound or the 38-acre Harbour Isle lake. Priced from the $500s, these one-story homes range from 1,483 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.
Minto was awarded nine 2015 Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association (MSBIA) Parade of Homes awards for Harbour Isle, including “Best Overall Community.” Harbour Isle’s gated entry opens to a Royal Palm-lined streetscape bordering a 38-acre lake, and a two-mile walking path encircles the island. In addition to the Beach Club, each neighborhood within Harbour Isle has its own amenities that include resort-style pools, private cabanas, kayak launch, firepit, outdoor kitchen and more. The planned Harbour Isle Marina with wet and dry storage, restaurants, and ship’s store is planned to open next year.
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 West 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.
