Neighborhood Highlight: Waterford Lakes at SilverLeaf

Welcome to Waterford Lakes at SilverLeaf, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in SilverLeaf St. John’s Florida!

If you’re looking for a modern townhome community with plenty of amenities, this is the place for you. With its lakeside setting surrounded by tall, Florida pines it’s no wonder why people love living here. Let’s take a closer look at what this tucked-away neighborhood has to offer.

The Neighborhood

The Waterford Lakes Community at SilverLeaf is a planned development of stylish two-story garage townhomes. Built by DR Horton, this neighborhood’s first owners began moving in in early 2022, and projected completion is anticipated in 2024.

DR Horton is one of the most prolific builders in the United States. The townhomes at Waterford Lakes are modestly priced with neutral and mid-grade finishes. To offer competitively low purchase prices and fast construction, the builder standardizes the finishes. This means that you cannot choose to upgrade or change the finishes, however you will find that these classic townhomes are outfitted with neutral aesthetics. 

One of the best aspects of purchasing your new home at Waterford Lakes with DR Horton is that the sale contracts do not include an escalation clause. When you sign your purchase contract with the builder your purchase price is locked in even if building supplies or labor prices go up during the construction of your home.

The Aspen

For those looking for an affordable option then the Aspen townhome is great model to point to. With two bedrooms, two and a half baths at 1,210 square feet and a single car garage, the Aspen is a straight-forward, open concept design that makes excellent use of its minimal square footage.. This floorplan is always flanked by units on either side.

The Oakley

The Oakley townhome is three bedrooms, two and a half baths at 1,502 square feet with a single car garage. This unit can be found as an end unit. Depending on the Oakley unit and building layout, you might have extra windows on one side of the unit and a more private entrance.

The Harper

The Harper model is one of my favorites because of the open feeling of the first floor. This unit is very similar to the Oakley with just a bit more square footage at 1,722 square feet. There are three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and a single car garage. This layout is always found in the center of the buildings. As you can see below, the great room is spacious with a great flow from the kitchen through the living area.

The Wesley

Like the Aspen model, the Wesley townhome is two bedrooms, two and a half baths however at 1,442 square feet. Similarly, this floorplan is always placed in the center of the building. If you planning on “house hacking” this condo, you’ll love that both bedrooms have their own full bathroom and there’s plenty of space between the rooms, with the laundry room centered between the two.,

The Keaton

The Keaton townhome is the largest model offered in Waterford Lakes with three bedrooms, two and a half baths and 1,795 square feet. This is the only model to offer a large two car garage. This offering is always built as an end unit. Most likely the double garage will draw your attention at first, but once inside you’ll love the screened lanai which runs the entire width of the back of the home and the side wall of extra windows. 

The Amenities

The community, once completed will include a pool, a splash pad, a gym/workout center, and a playground. Waterford Lakes is its own Home Owner’s Association (HOA) within the greater master SilverLeaf HOA. With that said, please note that residents of Waterford Lakes do not have access to the amenities of the other neighboring HOA’s within the SilverLeaf community and visa-versa. 

Home Finishes:

  • Whirlpool dishwasher, overhead microwave/fan, and gas stove
  • Washer/dryer plumbed for gas &/or electric
  • Kitchen countertops are fitted with granite and a deep under-mount stainless steel sink
  • White or dark brown shaker cabinets
  • Bathrooms come with chrome Moen fixtures
  • LED ceiling lights throughout 
  • Classic white 2” vinyl blinds are included with purchase

The Waterford Lakes townhomes each come with a smart home system. This bluetooth enabled system can be controlled by an app on your phone. Included with your home purchase is a central hub, security system option, light controls, remote lock, doorbell, and thermostat. At your discretion, you can choose to add to or use these systems after move-in.
