Lakewood Ranch

Sarasota, Florida

Award-winning Lakewood Ranch is a 17,500-acre master-planned golf community encompassing all aspects of residential and commercial development, set in the prosperous Sarasota/Tampa Bay region of Florida's Gulf Coast.

One of the largest green-certified communities in America- since 2005, every new village in Lakewood Ranch has been built "green," incorporating building products and techniques that result in a healthier, more energy-efficient, and environmentally responsible home.

Ten distinct villages offer a full spectrum of housing and lifestyle options - from single-family, maintenance-free, and luxurious private estates - surrounded by dramatic landscapes and wetland preserves harboring hundreds of species of native wildlife.

Recreational facilities include the acclaimed Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club, 54 holes of championship golf, Sarasota Polo Club, The Premier Sports Campus, the Ancient Oak Gun Club and an extensive collection of parks, nature areas and lakes. The community also features shopping, dining, excellent schools and health care on-site. Send me information now!
