The future of Lakewood Ranch is being redefined by new villages such as Arbor Grande, a residential project by CalAtlantic Homes that started in late 2016. For this particular builder, the Arbor Grande village is a pilot project that will lead to further development in Lakewood Ranch.
In 2017, Arbor Grande has been very well-received by Bradenton home buyers. This gated community has everything you can ask for, starting with its location just south of State Road 64 and east of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard. Arbor Grande offers lots of privacy, style, space, and luxury amenities at very reasonable prices.
CalAtlantic selected 10 floor plans to develop the 305 residences of Arbor Grande. You can choose between maintenance-free villas, single-family homes and imposing two-story estates with six bedrooms and four bathrooms. If you are in the market for a spacious property, Arbor Grande is certainly for you; this is a neighborhood where even the attached villas offer nearly 2,000 square feet of interior space.
Each floor plan at Arbor Grande comes with three architectural design options: European cottage, Mediterranean and Spanish colonial. All homes feature upgraded appliances, granite counters, linen cabinets, decorative foyers, tile roofs, Florida rooms, tropical landscaping, and more. Some of the properties enjoy views of ponds or small nature preserves. The community amenities include a gorgeous swimming pool with private clubhouse, tennis courts, a park for dogs, and green areas.
As of late 2017, pricing in this Lakewood Ranch village started at $400K for a three-bedroom home with two bathrooms built on more than 2,000 square feet under air conditioning. Considering that Arbor Grande is located just eight miles from Downtown Bradenton, this pricing level is very attractive and is bound to appreciate very quickly in 2018. The nearby Gateway shopping center, anchored by a new Publix supermarket, is just a short drive away.
