Developing residential communities that offer a resort-like atmosphere has become a trend at Lakewood Ranch. The idea is to provide homeowners with more than just a maintenance-free lifestyle; the right balance has to be established with regard to architectural style, interior design, location, landscaping, and amenities. The Edgewater village of Lakewood Ranch is one of the earliest examples of a resort-like neighborhood, particular the section known as The Moorings.
Located in a small peninsula not far from the Main Street shopping and entertainment district, The Moorings is an intimate collection of villas that face Lake Uihlein. The healthcare facilities of the Lakewood Ranch Town Center are right across the neighborhood entrance, and the Starbucks and Grove Restaurant of Main Street are within walking distance. The Moorings could be reasonably described as being the most pedestrian-friendly village of Lakewood Ranch, but there is more than just convenience to this community.
The amenities at The Moorings are outstanding even by Lakewood Ranch standards. In addition to the usual swimming pool, clubhouse, and fitness center, residents and guests have their own island to enjoy along with docking space, a kayak launch, and even a Tiki bar. The 34 villas in this community offer more than 130 units that start with two-bedroom floor plans listed under $300K; these are easily probably some of the best deals you can find in Manatee County at this time. The larger units with the best lakefront views are listed between $325K and $425K.
The Moorings is the kind of neighborhood where property values will always appreciate. The architectural style, the elegant interiors, and the convenience of being next door to Main Street are very attractive on their own, but you have to tour the neighborhood and experience the amenities to understand why The Moorings feels like a Caribbean resort. Everything you need in terms of shopping, entertainment, and suburban comforts is just around the corner at Main Street, but you also have nearby attractions such as Nathan Benderson Park and The Mall at University Town Center. Driving to Downtown Sarasota, Bradenton, or the beaches will take you less than 40 minutes.
