One of Viera East’s most unique communities is that of Wingate Estates. Tucked away at the Northeast corner of Viera East, Wingate Estates is a non-gated neighborhood with 260 single family homes built by extraordinary home builders Barber Development and Damar Homes. Built out from 2003 through 2005, Wingate Estates was beautifully developed around 3 large lakes, 4 smaller lakes and acres of natural wildlife preserve area. There are 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom homes in this community with 2 or 3 bathroom options.
From the main entrance of Wingate Estates, if you follow Clubhouse Drive to the right, you’ll find exquisite, well maintained patio style homes built on lots that are about 50’ wide. If you take a left at the main entrance to Wingate Estates, following Auburn Lakes Drive, you’ll discover beautiful homes built on lots around 80’ to 85’ wide. For all lots in the community, the developer paid particular attention to detail and positioned almost every home to have a beautiful back yard view. In fact, very few homes in Wingate Estates back up to another home. Over 95% of the home sites enjoy spectacular lake or natural preserve views.
Homes in Wingate Estates built by Barber Development offered custom options so you’ll find nice upgrades including things like square footage expansions, oversized garage space, tray ceilings, crown molding, decorative columns and wet bars. Damar Homes offered nice energy efficiency packages and some unique floor plans including RV garages with taller ceilings and doors. Both builders included rounded interior corner bead, paver driveways and in-ground irrigations systems.
Driving through the community you’ll quickly notice pride of ownership with homes and lawns being well maintained throughout. The community common area includes the Wingate Estate Resident Club. This private clubhouse includes a large indoor gathering room, fully equipped kitchen and a large screen TV. The private community pool area includes an expansive pool with two 60’ lap lanes, covered patio, restrooms, tables and lounge chairs. Next to the community pool is a large open space that’s perfect for neighborhood recreation. Owners in Wingate Estates can even reserve the clubhouse for private events, birthday parties or meetings!
Near the south end of the community there’s a nature trail that leads right to one of Viera’s nicest parks called Clubhouse Park. On any given day you’ll find youngsters romping on the commercial quality play set or swinging on the swings while teenagers enjoy hanging out at one of two basketball courts. Tennis players will love the two lighted tennis courts for daytime or evening matches. And there’s an enormous covered pavilion with tables and restrooms right next to two sand volleyball courts. Birthday parties are a blast at Clubhouse Park!
The Wingate Estates home owners association maintains an active membership website with extensive information about the community for residents including things like a pet directory, sitter services and a recipe exchange. The neighborhood has formed several committees to benefit the residents including a Clubhouse/Pool committee, Community Affairs committee and beautification committee. Current events such as the community wide garage sale are also published on the website. There is even a classified advertising section for a quick and easy way to sell off some extra stuff!
