"Boomers" Increasingly Buying Into "Lifestyle" Communities

"Baby Boomer Real Estate"

"Baby Boomers", the generation born to post-World War II parents (The Silent Generation) from about 1945-1964. As you can imagine, many veterans returning from one, two, and three year deployments in Europe and the Pacific were all too ready to leave the fog of war behind them and build futures, and families, upon returning to opportunity laden U.S. soil. As a result, the United States saw an explosion of its population during this period. Fast forward to modern day America and we find that same generation now in their 50's, 60's and 70's. They are retired, retiring or semi-retiring yet still young enough to want to live an active lifestyle. In fact, because of the onset of age-related health issues, this demographic is increasingly becoming more health conscience. They also typically have more time in their schedules and are looking to share and experience their "Golden Years" with other boomers whom they tend to have more in common with. Subsequently, we are seeing a sharp rise in the availability of what developers and city planners have dubbed "Lifestyle Communities". Let's talk about one of the newest lifestyle communities in Sarasota - Bellacina by Casey Key, an Esplanade Community by TaylorMorrison.

Bellacina by Casey Key is a brand-new, gated, adult lifestyle community located just off of State Road 681 in the Nokomis area of Sarasota county. Nokomis is an unincorporated area located just north of Venice, Florida and just south of the Osprey area in south Sarasota. Living in this area has plenty of benefits including being directly across from Oscar Sherer State Park, ample shopping, very quick and easy access to I-75, close proximity to the beach (10 min drive), a short distance away from the quaint shops and restaurants of Venice Island...and it's only about a 15-20 minute drive to Siesta Key, downtown Sarasota, and St. Armand's Circle.

Even with all of the area amenities that Bellacina by Casey Key will not have to leave the community to find something to do, as the Bellacina by Casey Community offers a plethora of activities and amenities sure to fit most lifestyle needs. Some of those amenities include:

  • A "Lifestyle Team" to help residents navigate and schedule the many activities the community offers

  • Several court sport options that include bocce ball, pickleball, and tennis

  • A 44-hour Wellness and Fitness Center offering an array of cardio and fitness machines, as well as free weights. The Fitness Center also offers fitness classes, personal training,, and wellness seminars

  • A calendar full of community events and social gatherings

  • Resort-style swimming pool and fire pit

  • On-site spa services that can be scheduled through the Lifestyle Team

  • Lake with kayak launch

  • Access to several TaylorMorrison Esplanade golf communities
