March 4, 2020 – Mattamy Homes heralds the opening of its first 55+ community, WaterSong, within the company’s award-winning, amenities-rich RiverTown community along the scenic St. Johns River. WaterSong marks the entry of Mattamy, North America’s largest privately owned homebuilder, into Florida’s booming active-adult market.
“WaterSong is Mattamy’s first age-restricted community, and our entire team is delighted that it’s becoming a part of RiverTown. The setting is, quite simply, gorgeous. It’s perfect for active-adult homebuyers who want the serenity, convenience and amenities they’ve worked all their lives to earn.” said Cliff Nelson, Mattamy Homes’ Jacksonville Division President.
Set in St Johns County amid lush and plentiful greenspace dotted with palmetto trees and live oaks draped with Spanish moss, the community boasts an array of exclusive resort-style amenities. These include a fitness center, social room, hot tub, pickleball courts and paw park. In addition, an exclusive clubhouse designed especially for WaterSong’s active-adult residents will provide a vibrant social hub in the secure, gated community. The first phase of the WaterSong Amenity Center is expected to open in early 2021.
WaterSong’s homebuyers also enjoy all the benefits that the RiverTown master-planned community has to offer. RiverTown’s marquee amenities include Olympic-size and zero-entry pools, a fitness center, yoga studio and miles of nature trails. Other features include a kayak launch, fishing pier, patios, dining options, tennis courts, soccer field, dog park, tot lot and more. The world-class RiverClub overlooks the breathtaking St. Johns River, with a boardwalk hugging the shoreline.
Nestled on 260 acres, WaterSong, once completed, will feature approximately 800 villas and single-family homes.
“Within two months of opening, impressive early sales showed a clear demand for a community that’s tailor-made for active adults in northeast Florida. That’s why we’re so excited about WaterSong as an exceptional lifestyle experience, and we’re looking forward to being able to deliver beautifully designed homes within RiverTown,” Nelson said.
With an average of 223 days of sunshine each year—18 more days than the U.S. average—WaterSong offers even more benefits to 55+ homebuyers in a state with no state income tax.
WaterSong’s ideal location near I-95 provides outstanding access to the best of St. Johns County and beyond. Florida’s beautiful beaches are only about 30 minutes away from WaterSong. Top-ranked healthcare, golf courses, first-class dining, top-shelf shopping and cultural choices are around the corner.
Open now, six fully decorated model homes are available for viewing. The brand-new floorplans were designed exclusively for WaterSong, specially tailored for active-adult homebuyers.
WaterSong is also the first community in Mattamy’s Jacksonville Division to include a smart-home technology package in every home, offering connectivity to make life that much easier.
