A Visit to Cascades, World Golf Village

Each week, agents from Watson Realty Corp. and the Menton & Ballou Team participate in a caravan to view beautiful listings in St. Johns County and Duval County. This week, 15 open houses were staged in Cascades, a 55 and older community in World Golf Village.

A visit to homes in the Cascades neighborhood in World Golf Village revealed a few things.

First, the residents and homeowners take pride in their properties, on the inside and out.

Second, the amenity center offerings are abundant. The Grand Center features an outdoor saltwater pool and spa, plus an indoor saltwater heated lap pool. There’s an arts and crafts room with a pottery wheel, a billiard room with dart boards, a card playing room, a ballroom with dance floor and kitchen, and a bocce ball courts.

And maybe we saved the best for last.

Third, the Homeowner Association Fees provide a lot of value.

The HOA monthly is $358. Here are the many services that are included: lawn cutting, trimming of shrubs, lawn fertilization and pesticide, irrigation water, mulching, home security monitoring, 70 channels of Direct TV, gated entry 24/7 with security staff (7 days per week, from 8 a.m.-6p.m.), fitness/tennis center, full-time lifestyle coordinator, sidewalks for walking and biking, professional management company services.

One final note.

There are NO Community Development Fee in Cascades.
