In the year 2000, national home builder Centex set out to develop a new kind of gated, 55+ senior community in Southwest Florida. The builder’s intention was to provide a 21st century blueprint for at modern adult communities should be, and Lakeridge Falls in Sarasota is the result of this vision.
Lakeridge Falls consists of nearly 400 residences distributed among three distinct sections: Stirling, Victoria and Sandstone. Stirling Falls features 151 single-family homes built according to medium-sized floor plans. Victoria Falls consists of duplex-style villas reminiscent of townhouses. Sandstone Falls is the largest community; it comprises 138 residences arranged in groups of four and six.
As a master-planned neighborhood, Lakeridge Falls presents a great sense of aesthetics. The modern architectural design incorporates some elements of the Mediterranean revival style, and many of the residences enjoy views of the lakes or of the nature preserve. The neighborhood sections are connected by means of carefully maintained sidewalks lined by immaculate landscaping. Lakeridge Falls is a maintenance free community, which leaves residents with plenty of time to enjoy all the amenities. The amenities include a resort-style swimming pool, spa, a modern exercise room, a large clubhouse that is perfect for socializing, bocce ball courts, and picnic areas.
A significant portion of the 170 acres upon which Lakeridge Falls sits was set aside for the purpose of nature conservation. To this effect, there are 16 lakes and ponds that dot the neighborhood, which is anchored by a large forest preserve in the center.
Although Lakeridge Falls is formally located within Manatee County, the neighborhood is a lot closer to Sarasota than to Bradenton. This is good news for active seniors who enjoy golf, tennis, the beach, museums, art galleries, and cultural events. Residents of this community enjoy a great location: a few cafes, restaurants and shops are within walking distance, and two major commercial districts are a short drive away.
