Some home buyers in Manatee County prefer to search for properties in subdivisions instead of Lakewood Ranch villages because they feel that the latter are too homogeneous in terms of architectural styles. At Cresswind in Lakewood Ranch, a new village developed by Kolter Homes for retirees, house hunters can be assured that they will not get the cookie-cutter look. The Kolter Group is a real estate development company focused on building stylish neighborhoods in the southeastern states, and Cresswind is Kolter’s exclusive brand of 55+ communities for active seniors.
If you are familiar with the Ritz-Carlton Residences and their comfortable lifestyle for seniors, you will get a good idea of what life is like at Cresswind. The first few villas and single-family home models were completed in late 2019; they gracefully combine Mediterranean and Caribbean architectural styles in various elevations to give the neighborhood a diverse look. Initial sales have been brisk, and the developer has been completing new homes at a gradual pace.
The real estate opportunities at Cresswind start with two-bedroom villas that offer 1,515 square feet of living space. The largest floor plans are for single-family residences with up to five bedrooms and more than 3,000 square feet of interior. As of April 2020, prices at Cresswind start at $364K for a move-in ready home. Depending on the model you choose, you may get a den, an extended lanai, or a combination tub and shower. The nearest shopping center, Lakewood Walk, is about 10 minutes away.
Cresswind is located in the eastern section of Lakewood Ranch, just south of Parrish and not far from Downtown Bradenton. By virtue of being located close to Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island, weekend trips to the beach are routinely organized by Cresswind’s own lifestyle director. This is a senior community where residents will always have something enjoyable to do: the clubhouse offers yoga, circuit training, social clubs, and craft classes. You can invite guests to the tennis and pickle ball courts. You can spend time with your canine companion at the dog park, walk around the nature preserves, or play bocce ball with friends while you enjoy snacks from gourmet food trucks. There is also the resort style swimming pool that is perfect for hot Florida days.
