Reviews for Lakewood Ranch Real Estate

Holly, Resident
2012-10-30
 
Pros:

Homes are large and the prices are low. Golf communities are prominent out here. It's nice to get away from the seasonal traffic and into a more secluded location. Great wildlife--exotic birds and alligators are seen regularly!

Cons:

A bit far from the city life in Sarasota, but close to Main St. Lakewood Ranch and not far from downtown Bradenton, either.

Summary:

Lakewood Ranch is great place to live if you're ok with a 20 minute drive to the city life and beaches. Large homes and big yards at a price you just can't get in Sarasota.


 
Lakewood Ranch suck, Resident

Pros:

New homes

Cons:

All of the homes are basically the same. No charm. Don't get drunk and try to find your house. You might go to the wrong one. Stepford wives

Summary:

I used to live in Lakewood Ranch but have moved to Sarasota. I initially loved my new home but they lack charm. Too many soccer moms ruling the roost. Glad to be out of there.

Pros:

Love having a new home with high ceilings, lots of natural light, fabulous outdoor living area with pool and lake views. LWR is laid out very well. Lots of sidewalks. Love the shopping and restaurants here and close by on University Parkway. I-75 is close.

Cons:

Distance from the beach.

Summary:

We used to live on Lido Key in St. Armands Tower and loved it but grew tired of an old building and condo living. We love living in Lakewood Ranch.


 
Mark Hughes, Resident
2012-03-28
 
Pros:

Best place to live, learn, work, play and worship in Southwest Florida. Can't think of a more fun and relaxing place to live. Great construction, neighborhood layouts, options, amenities and lifestyle. People from all over the country with varied interests, lots of fun organizations, groups, and clubs to participate in. Great walking, jogging, and recreation options. A truly wonderful master planned community with something for everyone and then some.

Cons:

Not many, August can get a little warm, but that is what your pool is for. Gator or two.

Summary:

If you are moving to Florida, Southwest Florida is the place to choose. For a full life, Lakewood ranch is the choice in Southwest Florida. Prices are great. We loved our 8 years on the Ranch and recommend it whole heartedly.


 
P Liashek,
2012-03-28
 
Pros:

Very well planned community with many things to offer. Homes are newer. Close to big box stores, great access to I-75 and Tampa. Many families and year round residents. Homes tend to hold value compared to other areas near by. Residents love this community and it is beautiful.

Cons:

Many streets and homes look the same. Quite a drive to the beach, downtown, and cultural events. Lakewood Ranch restaurants and nightlife tend to be a bit sleepy.

Summary:

Lakewood Ranch is a great place to get away from the seasonal traffic but close enough to things that everything is within a 20-30 minute drive. It is an easy commute to Tampa and relatively close to amazing beaches. There is s great deal of growth in the community with many opportunities to build as well as purchase beautiful existing homes.

Lakewood Ranch Homes

Depending on which village you visit or choose to buy in, Lakewood Ranch homes come in many different architectural styles and prices. You can choose from luxurious homes in the gated village of "The Lake Club" which range in prices starting at $800,000 to well over $6 million. Here, you will find detached villas and a private Tuscan-inspired club. If that one's a little steep for your wallet, try a town home or a single-family home in "The Country Club" village, which range in prices starting as low as $200,000. Here, you will find private golf courses consisting of 54 holes and a fitness center, The Athletic Center. Want something in between, don't fret because you're sure to find something in the remaining 6 villages: Riverwalk, Summerfield, Edgewater, Greenbrook, Central Park and Country Club East.
