Just past Eastport Golf Course on Rivergate Lane is a delightful dual community of Rivergate 55+ Garden Homes and Whispering Woods, offering townhomes with garages and a condo complex at the end, overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.
Built in 2009, Rivergate 55+ homes are restricted to having at least one resident that is over 55 years old. The homes are charming 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath stone-trimmed, with landscaped and maintained yards, most with 1 or 2 car garages. Prices range from the low $100's for regular patio homes, and up to $150-160,000 for homes with garages.
Rivergate has a small pool and clubhouse, and a homeowner's association that handles maintenance, landscaping, and cable tv. HOA fees are low - $153 per month, and everything is taken care of except for electricity and water.
The neighborhood changes into the Waterway community of Whispering Woods, which first includes 3 bedroom, 2.5 Bath Townhomes. Whispering Woods offers a pool, and the HOA fees of $215 include landscaping and maintenance. Most townhomes include a 1 or 2 car garage. Prices are around $139,000 for the townhomes.
At the end of the road lies a condo building which backs up to the Intracoastal Waterway, offering fantastic views of water and boats along with covered porches to sit and enjoy the beautiful sights. Condos are 3 bedroom 2.5 bath luxury units, sharing the pool, and also have a walkway in the back which leads to a covered gazebo and day-dock on the water. The condos run just under $200,000, and HOA fees are around $210 per month.
Property insurance in the communities may be separate from the HOA fees and will change from year to year.
