Two Exciting Neighborhood Options

The Heights is being developed as two separate neighborhoods. We want more people to enjoy this fantastic lakeside opportunity.

Not every Bradenton, FL new home buyer is looking for exactly the same thing. That’s why we provide options.

  • Grandview at the Heights – A perfect fit for buyers looking for quality home designs without sacrificing location and amenities. Grandview is also where you’ll find a long row of waterfront lots along the shore of Lake Ward.
  • Esplanade at the Heights – If you’re familiar with Taylor Morrison then you know that Esplanade is our signature brand of inspired resort lifestyle communities. From the striking resort-style pool & spa to sports courts, a Lifestyle Manager  and a state-of-the-art fitness center, this is where you want to be to make every day feel like a Florida vacation.

Get familiar with both communities to see which lifestyle is right for you. No matter which one you choose, you’ll love the elevated Trail Park shared by both communities. With miles of well-maintained paths, exercise stations and vantage points with breathtaking views of Lake Ward, your walk in the park will be unlike any other.

Trail Park is going to be something else. You won’t find another new home community in the Bradenton, FL real estate market with anything quite like it.
