Lakewood Ranch is the kind of master-planned development that always manages to stay relevant thanks to the vision of home builders such as Forestar and D.R. Horton, which are currently working on Star Farms, one of the most exciting real estate projects Manatee County has seen in recent years.
Star Farms in Lakewood Ranch is a resort-style gated community that will offer single-family homes, paired garden villas, and townhouses built on 700 acres of land. The community is arranged into four areas called “neighborhood collections:” Adventure, Discover, Journey, and Explore. Each collection is designed to provide specific lifestyle experiences.
The Adventure section of Star Farms offers paired villas and activities geared towards retirees. The Discover collection appeals to families looking for spacious homes. First-time home buyers who wish to raise young families will like the Journey collection, and the Explore neighborhood of stylish townhouses is ideal for single professionals. Each neighborhood collection will feature its own set of amenities for the convenience of residents and guests.
As of June 2022, D.R. Horton was putting the final touches on townhouse units in the Explore neighborhood of Star Farms. Initial pricing for three-bedroom units with 2.5 bathrooms and a floor plan measuring 1,673 square feet was listed around $430K, which is actually lower than the median home price in Bradenton. Homes in the Discover neighborhood, which is the most upscale collection, are currently listed at pre-construction prices just under $650K, but home values are expected to appreciate very quickly this year.
The amenities at Star Farms will raise the bar for Lakewood Ranch villages. Modern wellness centers will be built next to swimming pools with clubhouses; tennis courts will be located close to scenic lakeside lounges. The family-oriented Discover and Journey neighborhoods will feature dog parks and playgrounds.
Star Farms is being developed in the northeastern quadrant of Lakewood Ranch, which means that it is closer to Bradenton than Sarasota. Nearby attractions include Lake Manatee, the Bradenton Motorsports Park, and Rye Preserve. Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island can be driven to in about 45 minutes. With regard to shopping and dining, the Lakewood Walk shopping center is less than 10 minutes away, and it is anchored by a Publix supermarket that routinely gets positive reviews.
