As Lakewood Ranch continues to expand, certain sections are developing their own identity and style, thus making them more attractive to smart home buyers. In 2023, the Waterside section of Lakewood Ranch is emerging as one of the most desirable. Located to the east of I-75 and south of University Drive near the Fruitville district of Sarasota, Waterside is a collection of nine new villages around seven lakes; it has its own waterfront town center complete with shops, restaurants, a farmers market, community park, and connecting nature trails. This is where national home builder Pulte is developing the new Avanti gated community of townhouses, garden villas, and single-family homes.
Avanti at Waterside is located along Lakewood Ranch Boulevard, about four miles north of the I-75 and Fruitville Road junction. More than half of the properties in Avanti enjoy direct views of Blue Heron Lake and its surrounding nature preserves. Pricing starts around $330K for three-bedroom townhomes with 2.5 bathrooms. If you prefer a cozy garden villa, two and three-bedroom homes start around $420K. For more living space, the Daylen model offers four bedrooms and two bathrooms built on 1,580 square feet of interior.
The models selected by Pulte for Avanti are inspired by Mediterranean and Caribbean home design. Pulte is known for building stylish properties with quality materials and attention to detail. Some of the features you can find in new Avanti homes include smart thermostats connected to Lennox HVAC units, wood cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms, wiring for smart home automation systems, motion-sensing light switches, decorative fixtures, storm-resistant windows, automatic sprinklers, and energy-efficient water heaters.
Avanti is within a bike-riding distance of Waterside Place, the new lakefront town center for residents of Waterside villages. As of November 2023, nearly half of the commercial spots at Waterside Place were occupied by active shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes, and clinics. The community amenities you can enjoy here include sand courts for beach volleyball, a pavilion, a kayak launch, a park, nature trails, and more.
Living in Avanti means being able to drive less than eight miles to Downtown Sarasota and the beaches at Siesta Key. You can drive to the University Town Center shopping district in just 10 minutes, and this is where you can find stores such as Publix, Marshalls, Target, and Home Depot.
