Lakewood Ranch Real Estate
Located just above Sarasota proper is the newest and still growing master planned community in the area. Lakewood Ranch is grand in scope in vision, and has been faithful to its promise of a fantastic, vibrant self-sustained community.
Lakewood Ranch has its own schools, hospital system, business environment, downtown and Main Street with upscale shopping and dining, movie theaters, colleges and universities, cultural opportunities, an active events calendar and more. Although a common concern when Lakewood Ranch as being constructed was it’s distance to downtown Sarasota , the inclusion of its own downtown identity has made the trip largely unnecessary.
For Sarasota home buyers, Lakewood Ranch’s villages offer affordable single family homes on the one hand; while the Lakewood Ranch Country Club offers more luxurious estate style golf course living on the other. Regardless of your price range, Lakewood Ranch is a modern community with new homes, manicured landscaping and a standard of quality that assures a fantastic lifestyle. Schools, although new, are receiving great acclaim. This is a great family community by all accounts.
The only possible downside to Lakewood Ranch is its distance from beaches. A trip to the beach will cost you 30 or more minutes; however to many moving from landlocked areas, that is a small price to pay. If you can get beyond that fact, Lakewood Ranch real estate will provide you with a vibrant and beautiful place to live and work.
