Madeira St. Augustine Community Tour

If you want to be in a planned community close to downtown St Augustine come take a tour of Madeira. I have a lot of buyers looking to get some help with new construction and one of my favorite builders in St Johns County is Mastercraft, they are amazing in every way and build beautiful high quality homes.

The features that come standard with a Mastercraft home is better than any other builder I’ve seen. Some features include gourmet kitchens, solid core doors, and 10 foot ceilings. Each community varies but the features list is long and you can honestly build a standard MasterCraft home that would be on par with an upgraded home with other builders. And Mastercraft just happens to be building Phase 2 and 3 in Madeira.

Madeira is located in close proximity to historic St. Augustine and Vilano Beach. It’s perfectly situated just north of town so not far from Jax either.
Vilano Beach

Vilano Beach

This community is west of the intracoastal and encompasses approximately 1,000 acres including over 600 acres of marsh wetlands, a tidal creek, numerous lakes and preserved natural areas with live oaks and magnolias. Madeira’s latest phase offers a lush natural environment with lake and marsh view home sites.
