Sammy We Moved, Resident
Very pretty and well manicured. Fabulous presentation.
We needed more diversity in homes and communities. CDD fee stinks. The drive into town.
We lived in Lakewood Ranch for 4 years. Overall, it was a good experience but we found ourselves driving into Sarasota a lot. So, we decided to there. Great community but we tend to move every 5 years and wanted a change.
Beth Lancaster, Visitor
Most people have heard that Lakewood Ranch is recognized as one of the Top 10 Planned Communities in the country. Many are familiar with their motto - "Live.Work.Play". But what makes this area shine is when my clients comment on how much their lives have changed for the better since calling it home. They no longer dread leaving an igloo to walk the dog in the middle of January... they can choose from over 150 miles of trails and paths to explore. They actually venture out to "Music on Main", where they block of the street and host free concerts the first Friday of every month... several have even reinvented their dance moves. I have one client that may want me to re-list her home so she can move into UTC - the new ahh-mazing mall around the corner. But what you'll all want to do is go tailgate at the Polo Club on Sunday afternoons. Everyone needs to experience stomping down divots on the field at halftime.
So much to do... So little time... Aghhhh!!!
Marc Rasmussen, Visitor
Very consistent and well planned neighborhood. You won't find a dumpy house next to a mansion. A very pretty and well laid out community. Lakewood Ranch offers newer/new homes with the latest in construction and design.
Some don't like the diversity in homes and charm. It is very cookie-cutter.
A wonderful community, but not for everyone. It is definitely worth exploring to see if it fits your needs and wants.
