CrossCreek and Medallion Home: A Community Where Nature Comes First

For Tommy and Lisa Wooten, Medallion Home’s CrossCreek community in Parrish was a natural choice. “We love the beautiful tree-lined entrances, and the community pool and splash park, play area and dog park create a very family friendly environment,” says Lisa Wooten. “We are super-excited for our daughter Lexi to attend the schools in CrossCreek’s district.”

Surrounded by tall oak trees, picturesque CrossCreek is practically next door to some of the state’s best fresh and saltwater fishing, incredible Gulf of Mexico beaches, riverfront parks, and a multitude of outdoor recreational opportunities.

It’s part of a lifestyle that makes CrossCreek so appealing to first-time homebuyers, families of all ages, and retirees looking for the ideal Florida home.  They like the idea of waking up in the morning and glimpsing ibis as they probe for crayfish, sand hill cranes catching a quick breakfast, and herons wading in the shallows. That unspoiled Florida landscape – combined with beautiful new Medallion Home models – is the perfect combination!


CrossCreek features five custom-quality floor plans– the Harbour, St. Croix, Grand St. Kitts, Grenada and St. Thomas –  in a variety of architectural styles and elevations priced from the $200s.  Floor plans range from 1,524 to 2,159 square feet and can be custom finished to express your personal tastes and preferences.

Four fully furnished models are now open at CrossCreek, beginning with the Harbour, which has three beds, two baths and 1,524 square feet of comfortable living space. The Grenada features a dining room, breakfast nook, den and great room.  Spacious bedrooms and a sprawling lanai make Grand St. Kitts a prime choice for experiencing the best of the best. The St. Thomas is a photogenic, highly livable design with features that appeal to the style- conscious homeowner. Three full bedrooms with two baths, a beautiful dining room and inspiring den (or home office) complete this lovely picture—one you'll want to share with your family and friends.

“CrossCreek is very affordable for all of the amenities offered,” says Wooten. “Plus, the gorgeous models and designs made it easy to envision ourselves in our new forever home.“ 


Right now, when you build a new home by Medallion at CrossCreek, you will receive a $20,000 Design Center gift card. If you purchase a move-in-ready home, you will pay no closing costs. (Exclusions may apply to both promotions).

As a new Medallion Home homeowner, you can expect top-notch service with one of the design experts. With Medallion Home, you can change the floorplan to your exact needs and choose your cabinets, countertops and other features. “My husband and I were so pleased with the customer service throughout this entire process,” Wooten says. “They guided us and gave us plenty of options to make sure we will be happy with our selections.” 


With the opening of the Fort Hamer Road Bridge – just two miles away – CrossCreek residents have easy access to Bradenton, Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch. “The new bridge will greatly improve our daily commute to work, shopping and other activities,” says Wooten.

For CrossCreek residents, it’s now 12.5 miles to Lakewood Ranch Medical Center and 14.6 miles to University Town Center.   Parrish is also near the I-275 approach to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and I-75 northbound, making it an ideal location for commuting to St. Petersburg and Tampa.  


Not far from CrossCreek is the 556- acre Lake Manatee State Park, offering a glimpse of the “real” Florida with three miles along the beautiful Lake Manatee, perfect for freshwater fishing from your boat or the park’s fishing docks. For another slice of old Florida, head over to Rye Preserve, a 145- acre property located just northwest of the Lake Manatee Dam. At nearby Fort Hamer Park, you can launch your boat, kayak or canoe—or just spend the day enjoying a private picnic at one of the pavilions.


Golf enthusiasts can find a number of courses close by, including River Wilderness Golf & Country Club and Buffalo Creek Golf Course. The nearby city of Bradenton boasts top-ranked private and semi-private clubs like Waterlefe Golf & River Club and River Strand Golf & Country Club at Heritage Harbor. Many courses and country clubs offer a variety of memberships that include social and dining privileges, tennis and golf lessons, club- house amenities and invitations to members-only events.


The city is also an incredible beach and boating destination, attracting surfers, paddle-boarders, fishing charters, sightseeing cruises, sailing enthusiasts and recreational boaters. Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key are a convenient drive from CrossCreek. They offer not only beach sport pursuits, but also fishing piers and great places to eat.
