The expansion of Lakewood Ranch is not limited to its northern quadrants. The area south of University Parkway and beyond the Sarasota Polo Ranches is undergoing major development; this is where the Waterside complex of upscale neighborhoods and commercial districts is currently under construction. The project will add three new waterfront villages to Lakewood Ranch: Lakehouse Cove, Shoreview and Waterside.
Arthur Rutenberg, Lee Wetherington and Homes by Towne are the three luxury home builders in charge of developing the ambitious Waterside project, which consists of very elegant single-family homes overlooking large lakes and nature preserves.
Waterside pricing starts at $482K for a three-bedroom and two-bathroom home featuring nearly 2,400 square feet of interior in Lakehouse Cove; this particular floor plan includes features such as covered lanai, an extra den, optional summer kitchen, and a separate pool house. At the higher end of the Waterside real estate spectrum you will find the Arthur Rutenberg estates; the Laguna floor plan features four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms built on more than 4,300 square feet of living space. The Laguna model is one of the most well-appointed designs available in Lakewood Ranch; this is a home that includes both formal and casual dining rooms, a panoramic den, fire pit, balcony, viewing deck, wet bar, fireplace, wine cellar, and even a swimming pool with spa and swim-up bar.
Planned amenities at Waterside include resort-style swimming pools, state-of-the-art fitness centers, dog parks, playgrounds, tennis courts, clubhouses, picnic areas, and a kayak launch to explore the two large lakes. The ultimate amenity will be Waterside Place, a lifestyle peninsula that will feature shops, pubs, cafés, restaurants, and a performance theater; this is also where condominium towers and townhouses will be developed in the future to attract residents who may be able to find jobs at the nearby corporate park.
By virtue of its location, Waterside stands to become the most stylish and convenient village of Lakewood Ranch; after all, it is very close to both Main Street at Lakewood Ranch and University Park, which are considered to be the best commercial and entertainment districts of Manatee County.
