When Lakewood Ranch celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2019, local developer Neal Communities was preparing for its 50th anniversary by making plans to break ground for Windward, a new village where residents will be able to enjoy a resort-like atmosphere. If your plans for 2021 include moving into a new construction home located in a gated community with great amenities, you should evaluate what Windward has to offer.
Windward is being developed at a site north of Fruitville Road and west of Lorraine Road, about three miles away from I-75. The real estate options here will range from paired villas ideal for first-time home buyers to four-bedroom estates perfect for larger families. Neal Communities has always excelled in terms of architectural style, and for Windward it has selected models with a very attractive Caribbean design.
Starter floor plans at Windward will offer two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and two-car garages built on at least 1,434 square feet. Pre-construction prices will start under $270K, but they will not stay at this range for too long. A three-bedroom home with 1,531 square feet of interior can be negotiated for less than $300K when signing a contract in 2020.
When completed, Windward will be the size of a small subdivision, and it will feature a large community recreation center anchored by a clubhouse complete with lounge spaces and a gym filled with modern exercise equipment. Two swimming pools, one for adults and the other for children, will be surrounded by tennis and pickle ball courts as well as playgrounds, dog parks, and nature trails
The area surrounding Windward is well-developed. You will only have to drive a few minutes to shop at the Publix supermarket in the Sarasota Crossings commercial district. The Mall at University Town Center is about 15 minutes to the west, and you can choose between the beaches of Siesta Key and Longboat Key when planning weekend trips.
As one of the most prolific home builders in Southwest Florida, Neal Communities has done a lot in terms of putting Lakewood Ranch on the map. If you were to take a customer satisfaction survey among Lakewood Ranch homeowners, you will easily come to the conclusion that Neal Communities is a developer that knows how to deliver quality of life. This is what you can expect from Windward at Lakewood Ranch.
