Why choose Edgewater Homes

With over 40 years of combined construction experience, Edgewater Homes and G. Patrick Bourgeois and Associates, Inc. build high quality new homes anywhere in Charlotte or Sarasota County. As locals we know the area, the market, the lifestyle. Compare our quality and standard features to our competitors. Whether it’s your first, second, or last; Edgewater Homes has a floor plan to suit your lifestyle.

Why build new? Let us count the ways…

  • • Choose flooring, cabinets, paint and finishes in your personal style
  • • Enjoy lower utility bills due to the energy efficiency of a new home
  • • A new home is built to withstand a hurricane like no used home is
  • • Your new home is built to the latest building codes
  • • A new home costs less to insure (a LOT less!)
  • • Low maintenance (no roof to replace, no remodeling required)
  • • Peace of mind knowing your home has a warranty (unlike “as is” sales!)

All of our floor plans can be customized and styled to suit your personal taste. Our Charleston model showcases some design options that you may not have considered such as French doors instead of sliders, or a built-in window seat in the breakfast nook. Like the cottage feel? How about beadboard paneling in lieu of a headboard in the guest bedroom? Tray ceilings and a huge gathering island in the kitchen with granite tops are just a few of the special details you’ll find when you visit. Come see for yourself why the Charleston model has won so many design awards!

Our homes exceed code requirements (and other builders’ standards) in ways you can’t see from the outside. Our exceptional “behind the walls” quality features include oversized concrete foundation footers, 1/2″ plywood roof decking (not OSB), insulated double-paned windows, outswing exterior doors to help with wind load and impact rated garage overhead doors (which are more expensive and not required by code). We install hurricane shutters on the perimeter of the lanai opening so you don’t have to store your patio furniture in your living room. Our homes are engineered as partially enclosed, which simply means they are designed to be stronger in case of wind intrusion and/or pressure changes.
