Craftsmanship and quality
Lee Wetherington Homes, named America's Best Builder by the National Association of Home Builders and Builder Magazine, has been designing and building high-quality single-family homes and custom homes in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, including the Bradenton and Venice areas since 1974.
Delight in the details
Opening in February 2018 the Windward model was designed to optimize the waterfront setting of virtually every homesite in The Islands. The 3-bedroom, 4-bath home features 3,341 square feet of living space, including a huge great room, dining area, and spectacular kitchen.
The Windward has every detail a Florida homeowner could ever desire. For ease of living, it's a one-level home with a total of over 5,000 square feet. The island kitchen, casual dining and great room open up to a huge 913 square foot lanai with expansive glass walls designed to take full advantage of the beautiful waterfront views of the Manatee River. Perfect for entertaining or just to enjoy the beautiful view the lanai features an outdoor area with a fire pit, outdoor kitchen and pool/spa with a Panorama Screened cage. This treasure by Lee Wetherington Homes is ideal for retirees, transplants from the cold Northern states, and buyers seeking a second home in the warm, tropical weather of southwest Florida.
Easy access to amenities
The Windward by Lee Wetherington Homes has easy access to all the neighborhood amenities including golf, tennis, fine dining, and fitness and spa center and is located on a harbor lot with direct boating access to the Manatee River and Gulf of Mexico. The Manatee River is the perfect place for nature lovers who enjoy boating, fishing, birding, kayaking, and wildlife photography. Boaters will especially appreciate the direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and the availability of private docks.
