One question people consistently ask us is:
How did you choose the neighborhood you live in?
With so many options in Lakewood Ranch, it can be overwhelming. We did our research and fell in love with Country Club East for many reasons, but here are our top 5 reasons why we love it, and love living here!
Reason # 5 – Established & Strong HOA
Feeling confident in the community you choose is important: confident in its budget and funding, its continually strong real estate values, and confident that you will be happy living there for a long time. With the shared ownership that an HOA establishes, everyone does their part to keep things looking great. Reserve studies show that the Country Club East association is in great shape and projected to be around 75% funded throughout the next decade. Translation = We are looking good!
Reason #4- Lakes & Preserves
Water views are good for the soul and CCE has plenty of them. With over 60 lakes and ponds scattered throughout the 20 neighborhood sections, chances are your home will have a view of some water. Additionally, the preserves that dot the land encourage natural wildlife habitats and maintain privacy between streets, so you can embrace all that the Florida lifestyle has to offer. Sip coffee on your lanai in the morning while the Sandhill Cranes stroll by and watch the sunset over the golf course. At all times of day, the lakes and preserves in Country Club East are something to enjoy!
Reason #3 – Variety of Architecture
Variety is the spice of life (or so they say!). Some new construction neighborhoods have extremely similar homes and color schemes, which can make driving through the streets repetitive and confusing if all the houses look alike! The variety of architecture in Country Club East is astounding and each home is unique and beautiful in its own way. Why be the same as everyone else when you can be different?
Reason #2 – Location
Located between University Parkway and Lorraine Road, Country Club East is walking distance to A-rated schools and just minutes to Lakewood Ranch Main Street, the Sarasota Polo Club, University Town Center, and the Premier Sports Campus. With the new Publix plaza on one corner and Wawa on the other, you do not have to travel far to find what you need, including a great night out at Libby’s! This location is ideal for travel all throughout Manatee and Sarasota counties due to its easy access to I-75. This puts Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Fort Myers within easy reach, as well, and beautiful world-class beaches are less than 40 minutes away. You really can’t beat this spot!
Reason #1 – People!
Take a walk at any time of day and you will find neighbors doing the same who are eager to stop and say hi. Neighbors and friends become family and welcome you to the neighborhood with open arms. All of the other details make living here wonderful, but the people make living here feel like HOME.
This list only breaks the surface of the things we love about this village, but we hope you found this information helpful!
