Return To A Quiet, Relaxed Lifestyle

By: Tim Stewart

Amelia Island in Florida's First Coast offers visitors and residents alike an opportunity to experience the beauty of nature as well as the rich history of the area - in terms of both businesses and homes. From river cruises to horse and carriage tours, spending time discovering Amelia Island is easy to get caught up in.

Of course, it's not just the history of the area that proves so appealing. For many, the allure comes from the ability to explore the area salt marshes by canoe or kayak, the chance to fish, the opportunity to bike or hike off of the beaten path on trails apart from the area's main roads.

This combination - a right history and an area wide open for exploration - draws many people to the area. However, once they arrive, many find a number of reasons why they do not want to leave.

Near the top of that list of motivations is the laid-back lifestyle that Amelia Island offers - a lifestyle that is captured in the Waterman's Bluff community in Amelia Island. There, residents are going to be taken back to an earlier time, a time when they were able to spend evenings watching the sun set from the comfort of the front porch of their home, nestled away from the traffic by traditional picket fences.

Waterman's Bluff, though the community draws on a rich Southern cultural heritage, is not caught in the past. Tradition is important, but luxury has not been overlooked. Inside homes at Waterman's Bluff, you'll find formal dining areas and formal living rooms. You'll find beautiful, modern, gourmet kitchens with top of the line appliances. You'll find comfortable breakfast nooks where you can ease into your day and luxurious bathrooms where you'll be able to unwind and soak away your tensions.

Throughout homes at Waterman's Bluff, residences will find themselves in a space that combines comfort and style along with the modern and traditional. Likewise, within the community residents will discover that there is an easy, relaxed feel.

Contributing to that feel is the community's resort-class swimming pool. For those who enjoy tennis, there are lighted courts; for the golfer, there are putting greens that will help perfect getting the feel for the green and sinking a shot on one of the area's many world-class golf courses. Similarly, to keep with the enjoyment of simpler times, the Waterman's Bluff community also offers lawn croquet - a traditionally Southern past time - as well as a pier for those who want to fish or to head out onto the water.

Tradition is important to community; too often people get caught up in the day to day and forget to take the time to just sit back and relax. Choosing to find your home at Waterman's Bluff can help to ensure that you remember to take life a little more slowly, that you remember the value of family, of culture and of sitting on your front porch drinking a glass of sweet tea and feeling the cooling ocean breezes.
