Even the most demanding house hunters are thoroughly impressed when they visit the Country Club at Lakewood Ranch. When developers of Lakewood Ranch sat down to plan their vision for this residential project, they determined to make Country Club one of most luxurious communities of Manatee County.
This neighborhood is perfect for home buyers looking for the ultimate country club lifestyle in a gated community. The golf course, racquet club and clubhouse are the crown jewels of refinement in Lakewood Ranch, and various luxury home builders such as John Cannon and Neal Communities have contributed their best floor plans to this community.
The Country Club at Lakewood Ranch is located in the heart of the master-planned development, and it is divided into various sections that appeal to various home buyers. Each Country Club neighborhood features its very own style; Miramar is a collection of townhouses while Highfield and Greystone are high-end neighborhoods with imposing estates. Other neighborhoods focus on more modest single-family homes.
The architectural designs at Country Club range from Key West homes to French Country and Mediterranean estates. Pricing starts around $250K for a villa in Miramar to more than a million for a mansion in either Greystone or Highfield. In general, the floor plans at Country Club enjoy greater interior space than in the other Lakewood Ranch villages.
For golf players, this neighborhood is a dream come true. There are three 18-hole courses to play: Cypress Links, King’s Dunes and Royal Lakes. Each course can be played at par 72, but Royal Lakes features tee placements that are friendlier to beginners. The clubhouse pays homage to the elegance of old-time New England country clubs, and it is one of the most attractive structures in Southwest Florida. The racquet club features 18 lighted courts plus a pro shop and a state-of-the-art fitness center complete with two swimming pools.
The Country Club neighborhoods are the best situated in Lakewood Ranch; they are close to shopping centers and to the Main Street town square. The beaches of Manatee and Sarasota Counties are about 30 minutes away.
