Whether buying a first home, relocating, or looking to purchase a vacation escape, Verandah, Florida, is an outstanding consideration. This 1,456-acre master-planned community is nestled on the Orange River’s banks in East Fort Myers, Florida.


 A Sustainable Community

What makes Verandah unique is that this community was developed to be sustainable and environmentally friendly. To ensure the integrity of this upscale community was not compromised, only “green building” practices were used. As a result, two-thirds of this community is designated as open space, including nature preserves, wetlands, parks, lakes, and miles of walking, jogging, and biking trails.

If you enjoy being outdoors, Verandah provides the opportunity to take long walks along the trails or, if preferred, fish the waters of the tranquil Orange River while sitting in the shade under an old oak tree.

While tucked away in its own paradise, Verandah is also just three minutes from Interstate 75, which provides quick and easy access into Fort Myers. There, you can enjoy even more popular attractions, including pristine beaches. Just outside of the community you will find an array of restaurants, shops, and other stores that make life convenient.

As a favorite gated community, Verandah boasts many fun and exciting amenities throughout the year, including golf, fitness, and sports, among other things.

You will also find a nice blend of housing options in Verandah that range from practical to lavish. Included are single-family homes, coach homes, and villas. Regardless if you pay $95,000 or $800,000, all the homes in the beautiful community were constructed by the most skilled builders in the state of Florida, such as DR Horton, Wyman Stokes, Koiter Homes, Lennar, and Royal Corinthian.


 Popular Amenities

Because Verandah has tropical weather for the majority of the year, most people spend significant time outdoors, but there are fun things to do inside as well. However, because so many people who live in Verandah are active, amenities have been created to accommodate. As such, the community boasts five lighted Har-Tru tennis courts, a junior-size Olympic swimming pool, and state-of-the-art fitness center complete with innovative equipment.

The most popular pastime in the community is golf. You can play at the Old Orange Golf Course designed by Bob Cupp or Whispering Oak Golf Course designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son, Jack Nicklaus II. Both of these world-class courses feature 18 holes with challenging layouts. Even so, you can enjoy a game of golf whether you have played for years or are just starting out.

More than likely you have heard the phrase “location, location, location” pertaining to real estate. Verandah offers just that, a perfect location with amazing amenities. This gated community is peaceful, stunning, and safe. While some of the homes are more contemporary in style, many still feature the beloved old Florida architecture that projects traditional Southern grace.

Just imagine owning a home surrounded by flowing waters, wide-open meadows, and large oak trees. In the gated community of Verandah, this is exactly what you will get, plus a whole lot more.
