Lakewood Ranch Real Estate Analysis

LAKEWOOD RANCH AND BEYOND

When the master-planned community of Lakewood Ranch began development in the late 1990s, it changed the face of east Manatee County forever. Perennially included in Top 10 lists of America’s best master-planned communities, Lakewood Ranch is now home to more than 18,000 residents who live in 8,500-plus homes in dozens of neighborhoods surrounding nature preserves and parks. This “live, work, learn and play” community is also home to a medical center, public and private golf courses, shops, restaurants, a major commerce center and even a polo club.

Sixteen top builders all have met Lakewood Ranch’s rigorous standards to be invited to build here. In 2013 alone, Taylor Morrison introduced the Ranch’s first “active adult” community, Esplanade Golf and Country Club just north of S.R. 70, with an eventual 1,250 detached villas and single-family homes; and Lennar introduced Bridgewater, a neighborhood of upscale manor and estate homes. Building continues also in the neighborhoods of Country Club East and Central Park, and Canada’s Mattamy Homes recently announced plans for a 675-unit development.

Just up I-75, WCI Communities is developing Tidewater Preserve on the Manatee River, and Neal Communities is building the first phase of Eagle Trace, with 182 home sites.
GOOD SPORTS

Lakewood Ranch spurred a development boom in east Manatee County, and several country club communities are located nearby, including Lennar’s River Strand Golf & Country Club in the master-planned community of Heritage Harbour, and Rosedale Golf & Country Club, which recently introduced its newest 221-unit single-family subdivision, The Links.

Manatee County has its fair share of other golf communities, of course, including the venerable 1920s-era Sara Bay Country Club, where an early match between the world’s greatest amateur golfer, Bobby Jones, and the best professional, Walter Hagen, is the stuff of legend. Newer clubs  include Palm-Aire Country Club, The Concession, River Wilderness Golf & Country Club, University Park Country Club and Waterlefe Golf & River Club.

But it’s really made its international sports reputation as the home to IMG Academy, the behemoth training center for top professional and amateur athletes. (Among the famed alums are tennis players Andre Agassi, Boris Becker, Monica Seles and Maria Sharapova  and golfer Paula Creamer.) Just as Lakewood Ranch transformed east Manatee County, IMG has brought an international presence and youthful vitality to southwest Manatee County as affluent families from all over the world come here to enroll their children. Arthur Rutenberg Homes, John Cannon Homes and Gibraltar Homes are building custom luxury homes at nearby Legends Bay.
