When it comes to home ownership, there always seems to be one need that is ever-present with every move: a strong sense of community. For the 55+ buyer looking for a new home, it can be a daunting task to find somewhere that is not only beautiful and comfortable but still promises to uphold these values.
That is why Del Webb Bexley, just off Sunlake Blvd., in Land O’ Lakes, has made it its mission to transform the idea of “living a fulfilled lifestyle” into an all-encompassing development. Just east of the Gulf Coast beaches and northwest of Tampa, the active adult community of Del Webb Bexley offers easy access to workplaces throughout Tampa Bay and an array of shopping, dining, and entertainment options, including the Tampa Premium Outlets. It is conveniently close to downtown Tampa and the Tampa International Airport. This very active community has set out to become one of the most fun and engaging atmospheres for 55+ homeowners.
“It’s truly the community here that makes it special; they are people who love life and are having fun living it. Sports, dinner parties, clubs, art, you name it,” said Brittany Young, marketing director. “We do our part to ensure that residents have everything they need to live their fulfilled lives.”
To Del Webb, the community is everything. However, simple “talk” isn’t enough. Therefore, Del Webb’s expansive 19,000-square-foot amenity campus serves as a standing testament to its residents’ important lifestyle priorities.
This all-encompassing social and activity hub is the center of operations that brings the entire community together every day.
The fittingly named “Meridian” is inspired by a warm, coastal Florida theme. It offers all the joy of seaside living plus convenient access to all Tampa Bay has to offer. It is here you can meet for a game of Mahjong, enjoy a snack or watch TV while playing a game of cards. The facility itself is not yet three years old, so it’s pulled every modern resource available to be exactly what residents need in this decade.
“Your day can be as active or as relaxed as you’d like. Our homeowners have access to clubs and classes designed to meet any interest,” said Young. There are also scheduled monthly in-person and virtual events, seminars, and programs. “It’s a great way to make friends, explore new interests, or mingle with people who share the same hobby.”
Staying healthy and active is a huge priority for the Meridian’s activity schedule. Inside the campus, the Maritime Fitness Center features cardio machines, as well as free weights and weight machines. It sits right across from the Floriblanca movement studio that houses all the fitness classes that Young mentioned. Outside there are sports courts for tennis, bocce ball, and pickleball. The resort pool sits conveniently around the corner with a spa and cabanas. The expansive yoga lawn is always available with coinciding classes for residents, and the entirety of the outdoor region is interconnected by a span of scenic bike and jogging trails.
“Our residents want to keep moving and keep doing,” said Young, “They want to stay informed and keep learning. It’s why we’ve implemented our monthly events newsletter to keep everyone in the know about what is happening here.”
High-intensity activity isn’t all of the Meridian’s features. For those looking to relax, the Bellamy Arts and Crafts room offers a variety of classes for the pursuit of knowledge or hobbies. The Soleil Royal Ballroom hosts year-round events and houses demonstration kitchens for cooking clubs and classes. The amphitheater on the event lawn does the same for music performances. At the center of it lies the Crow’s Nest Bistro & Sports lounge with its selection of beer, wine, specialty meals, trivia nights, games, and Super Bowl parties. For any potential residents looking to make Del Webb their home, there is no better time than the present.
“We’re getting close to our final opportunities. Now is the time for buyers to purchase and enjoy all the benefits of a new construction home,” said Young. “This is a community of friendship, lifelong relationships, and connection. Anyone with those values will feel at home here.”
The sales office and model park, with six professionally decorated models, are open seven days a week for tours. For more information and to learn about current incentives, call 813-412-8842.
