The largest green-certified community in the country
As environmentally responsible as it is lovely, Lakewood Ranch incorporates green building products and techniques that promote health and energy-efficiency. Lakewood Ranch is prized for its beautiful and convenient location, secured gated entrances, and neighborhoods that center on the Arnold Palmer designed golf course or ranch land. This 7,000 acre hamlet has been lauded as one of the most successful new master-planned communities in all of Florida.
The Ranch has been designed with eight separate villages, each with unique characteristics and style along with a spectacularly planned Main Street area with a lovely collection of boutiques and restaurants. Lakewood Ranch is consistently voted one of the “Best Neighborhoods” in the annual polls conducted by Sarasota magazine. A full 50% of the land at Lakewood Ranch is set aside for recreation or open areas setting it apart from virtually all other neighborhoods in the region.
Lakewood Ranch has established for itself with the perfect balance of people and the natural environment. With many options for golf, tennis, swimming, fitness, walking trails and parks, along with schools, health care, nearby hotels, restaurants and shopping, a Polo Club and Cricket Club, buying Lakewood Ranch real estate provides a world of lifestyle choices all within one beautiful development. Located just 1 mile from I-75 makes it a convenient choice for commuters as well as travelers giving easy access to both Sarasota/Bradenton and Tampa International Airports.
