Does the idea of being lulled asleep by the sound of water crashing on the shore sound like a dream?
With waterfront living, it can be your reality.
Besides the gorgeous vistas and constant sea breeze, have you considered some of the other benefits of putting down roots near the water? Today, we’re exploring seven!
Ready to learn more? Let’s set sail!
1. Stress-Free City Living
When you imagine living by the water, you might think of being in a remote locale, isolated from everyone and everything. The reality is that there are plenty of waterfront properties that are only minutes away from shopping, dining, nightlife and corporate opportunities!
Take our luxury condominium community, for instance. Here, you can enjoy all the benefits of living near the gorgeous Palma Sola Bay, but you’re still close to the surrounding community, including northwest Bradenton, Anna Maria Island and historic downtown Bradenton!
2. Peace and Quiet
An added perk of living near the water? You’re more likely to hear waves crashing and seagulls calling than horns beeping. Noise pollution can trigger your body’s stress response, leading to tense nerves and anxiety.
When silence is easier to find, you’re more likely to feel calm and relaxed, which is one of the reasons to move to the coast in the first place!
3. Access to Watersports
From kayaking and surfing to paddleboarding and sailing, there are many different kinds of watersports to keep you busy.
Rather than driving hours to indulge in your favorite activity, why not wake up and walk a few feet to the shore instead?
4. Healthy Ocean Air
It isn’t all in your head.
There are many ocean air health benefits to reap. Medical researchers show that it can lead to:
- Thinner mucus
- Less coughing
- Improved lung function
- A decrease in sinus pressure
You actually do breathe easier when you’re by the water.
5. Views for Days
Forget spending thousands on high-priced art to hang on your walls. When you live by the water, nature is your canvas!
Whenever you want an exotic view, you can simply open your curtains and take a look outside. This makes it easy to create a stunning backdrop for your next dinner party or outdoor barbecue!
6. A Valuable Investment
A waterfront property can offer a valuable return on investment (ROI). As these homes tend to be more difficult to find, they retain their value for a longer period of time compared to those in the city center.
7. Increased Privacy
When water is your backyard, that adds a level of seclusion you can’t get anywhere else. Whether you’re in a single-family home or a luxury condominium community, you can still enjoy solitude in your private oasis.
