Beautifully situated on one of the last large parcels of undeveloped waterfront land in the new West Bradenton, Legends Bay at IMG Academies is far removed, but not far away. Legends Bay offers a wonderful lifestyle that is part natural beauty, part exceptional sporting opportunities. With over a mile of waterfront directly on Sarasota Bay, the community provides views over wetlands and mangroves, with abundant wild life and water birds and kayaking along the peaceful waterway.

A private gated community, Legends Bay offers a luxury lifestyle and the peace of mind of all new construction at significantly reduced prices. Many of the homes face the bay, with spectacular sunset views. Architectural styles include Spanish Revival and Venetian, with the area’s finest builders offering the highest quality construction standards and latest design features.

The 60 maintenance–free coach homes in the Legends Cove neighborhood range in size from 2,000 to 2,700 square feet, and offer their own enclave of community amenities.
