Lyn & Bill Sappington

The area’s top Realtors know the best neighborhoods. When real estate professionals Bill and Lyn Sappington were looking for a home of their own, it was an easy decision to purchase a new elacora home at Madeira. The community offers a wonderful location just minutes from Historic Downtown St. Augustine and pristine First Coast beaches, naturally beautiful surroundings and exceptional quality homes by elacora.

“We are Realtors with Coldwell Banker and we know all of the areas,” said Lyn Sappington. “We lived in World Golf Village for 10 years but wanted to be closer to restaurants and still be centrally located in our market area. We knew about Madeira before the community offered any amenities. Once elacora built the community clubhouse, we knew it would only add to the neighborhood’s appeal. It always had location, location, location.”    

Situated very near the Old City’s north gate, only seven minutes from the ocean’s edge, with a Residents’ Club and surrounded by approximately 600 acres of conservation lands, Madeira offers the very best of St. Augustine living. The Sappingtons purchased a move-in ready home featuring the Positano plan on a homesite with a stunning water view.

“The driving force was the beautiful view of the lake,” Sappington said. “elacora’s homes are solar ready and include radiant barriers on roofs, tile roofs and pavers on driveways and screen porches. Our house is very well built and we love the open design.”

Villena Model Home

There are several new single-family homes available for expedited move-in at Madeira at St. Augustine. elacora offers two different home collections in Madeira, ranging in size from 1,797 square feet to more than 3,300 square feet and priced from the $200,000s to the $400,000s.

The Sappingtons were drawn to the community’s unspoiled, natural beauty and its numerous amenities. Many home sites at Madeira back up to conservation areas with spectacular water or nature preserve views. Madeira’s private Residents Club includes a pool with lap lanes, clubhouse, fitness center and outdoor gathering areas. Designed exclusively for residents, membership is included with the purchase of a home at Madeira.

“We enjoy working out at the fitness center and biking and walking through the neighborhood, which is very scenic with majestic trees and lots of birds,” Sappington added. “The neighbors are very friendly and our corgi dog loves walking and greeting everyone.”

Madeira, located off U.S. 1 in the city of St. Augustine, is in St. Johns County, known for its highly-rated public schools. Visitors to the community are invited to see elacora’s award-winning model homes furnished and decorated by the Barbara Ondo Design Group. The models are open daily. elacora homes at Madeira offer numerous design options – including additional bedrooms, sunrooms, game rooms and Florida basement storage solutions – so that homebuyers may select the combination of options best suited to their way of life.

The Madeira Sales Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call (904) 484-9024 or visit www.elacora.com.
