The southeast quadrant of Lakewood Ranch is home to some of the most luxuriant real estate in Manatee County. This is where you can find The Country Club, which is close to the Polo Club and the Cricket Club of Sarasota. Whereas The Country Club is focused on golf and tennis as part of its lifestyle offering, The Lake Club focuses on spectacular real estate.
At The Lake Club Lakewood Ranch, home buyers will find the finest creations of renowned home builders such as Arthur Rutenberg, John Cannon, Todd Johnston, and London Bay. The Lake Club consists of 1,500 acres of land, which have been parceled out into 768 home sites and various nature preserves. There are four subdivisions in this Lakewood Ranch village: The Lake Club, The Vineyards, The Villas at Matera, and Staysail Court.
The architectural design of The Lake Club takes a break from the Mediterranean look and settles for a modern take on the Tuscan style. The coziest floor plans can be found at The Vineyards, they feature 2,200 square feet of interior space and start at $700K. The larger and more recent floor plans are at Staysail Court; these are estates that measure at least 3,000 square feet and start at $900K.
The Lake Club will appeal to house hunters who are searching for the most outstanding real estate in Manatee County. There are still a few lots available for development, and the builders offer a great deal of customization and luxurious details. The values of the existing homes listed for sale will give property investors an idea of the great real estate appreciation in this village. For example, an imposing four-bedroom estate with 5,796 square feet of living space was listed for $2.2 million in mid-2015; this is a very elegant English manor with Tuscan influences and numerous extras such as built-in bookcases, a formal dining room, fireplace, wet bar, outdoor kitchen, fountain, marble floors, double master suites, and more.
The amenities at The Lake Club are also luxurious; they include an impressive Grand Clubhouse, two swimming pools, an imposing terrace, billiards lounge, bar, and lakeside picnic areas.
