Sarasota, FL (August 20, 2013) - Lakewood Ranch is proud to announce the addition of its newest neighborhood, Windy Hill, located in Country Club East.

The neighborhood is comprised of 37, 62-foot home sites. All sites are amenitized, many with unbelievable golf course views overlooking 10th hole of the Royal Lakes Golf Course – a challenging, dog-leg par four. Other home sites are situated on a preserve, overlooking a protected wetland. Most have southern exposures.

“This is a great addition to Country Club East, as we have not had golf course home sites for almost two years” said Jimmy Stewart, vice president of sales for LWR Communities. “The ongoing demand for new product in Country Club East is part of the continuing momentum that Lakewood Ranch has realized over the past few years.

As of June 30, 332 new homes had been sold in Lakewood Ranch; a 7 percent increase compared to the same period in 2012. There are currently 328 homes in various stages of construction, Stewart said, with new home sales representing more than 55 percent of all homes sold in Lakewood Ranch.

Homes will range from 2,000 to 3,800 square feet, with home and home site packages beginning in the $400s. Windy Hill’s six approved builders are Arthur Rutenberg-Nelson Homes, Lee Wetherington Homes, John Cannon Homes, John Neal Homes, Homes by Towne, and Cardel Homes. There will be no builder models in Windy Hill; visitors can tour the available models in Country Club East’s Haddington neighborhood.

Lots are available immediately.
