Edgewater is one of the most special and desirable villages of Lakewood Ranch. Located within walking distance of Main Street and the Legacy Golf Course, Edgewater is a collection of single-family residences neatly arranged Lake Uihlein, the largest body of water in Lakewood Ranch.
Although various villages in Lakewood Ranch offer homes that look out into small lakes and ponds, Edgewater offers the most majestic and sweeping waterfront views. In fact, some properties in this community even boast their own docking space.
Many of the homes at Edgewater are located on the shores of Lake Uihlein; a select few are tucked away in forest patches next to smaller lakes. Most homes were completed after the year 2000, and the architectural design is the Southwest Florida version of the Mediterranean style.
Pricing at Edgewater starts around $350K for homes with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. A few homes have two bedrooms, but the most sought after properties have four bedrooms and four full bathrooms; these are typically listed under $600K.
The meticulous landscaping and vast green areas of Edgewater are complemented by nature trails that connect the various residential sections with the Legacy golf course. Residents also enjoy a canoe launch and fishing area at the lake. One of these trails takes residents directly to all the comforts of Main Street, which include a medical center, movie theater, shops, restaurants, cafes, and more.
Edgewater is flanked by two other lakefront villages: Watercrest and The Moorings, but those two are condominium-style neighborhoods. The fact that Edgewater features lakefront single-family residences virtually next to Main Street makes it a very coveted community in Lakewood Ranch; this is something for home buyers to keep in mind as they watch property values rise.
