The Islands waterfront homes with great views in Gilbert, Az.

What makes a Gilbert waterfront home great? – The ViewThe Islands Waterfront with boats

One of the most important criteria for a waterfront home is not the curb appeal as you drive up to the house, but the view from the backyard looking out on the lake.  Even though an appraiser may not be able to quantify this view, waterfront home buyers understand the importance of a view that extends more than 100 feet from the shoreline.  The Islands is also a true boating community that allows boating for lakefront residents with pontoon boats as you can see from the picture to the right.

The Island Lake CommunityWaterfront Views at The Islands lake community in Gilbert

South lake in The Islands is  surrounded by the lakeside  communities of Catalina Bay, Key Harbor, and Windhaven.  Over 140 waterfront  residents in these communities can enjoy waterfront views of 150 – 250 ft. or more in most cases. Lot sizes range from 8,000 sq.ft. to over 12,000 sq.ft.  Home  builders in Catalina Bay, Key Harbor and Windhaven include UDC and Blandford Homes. Unlike residents that live north of Warner, residents in The Islands south of Warner road are part of the Chandler school district even though they have a Gilbert address.

North of Warner Rd. are two lakes and each is about 1/2 mile from end to end.  Communities with great views include Catalina Bay, Harbor Point, Coral Point, Coral Reef, Tres Vistas, Sandcastle Village, and Coral Reef towhouses.  It is not uncommon for houses to have over 150 feet from one shore to the opposite shore.
