Often Sarasota real estate can be dominated by waterfront property. People hear Sarasota, they think beach and water! But some of the most popular real estate choices in Sarasota have more to do with another popular pastime- golf! As prices fell, golf communities became viable lifestyle choices for all age groups, ot just the retired set.
With nearly 80 golf courses in Sarasota County, golfers can always find a place to get a game. In true Sarasota style, though, the most popular place for golfers to live, is of course, on the golf course! There are several golf & country clubs in Sarasota - TPC Prestancia, Stoneybrook, University Park and Serenoa to name a few.
Many clients call me looking for a 55+ lifestyle within a golf community, which is nearly non-existent around here. But the Meadows does come close. Although all ages are welcome in the Meadows, it does attract a more mature resident. Many folks looking for a 55+ community with all the amenities have settled happily here, as they have plenty of neighbors enjoying their retirement!
The Meadows is a master planned community built around 3 golf courses. It is very spread out and actually consists of numerous distinct neighborhoods and communities. The Meadows is known for mature tree lined streets, lakes and wildlife preserves, and the rolling courses. In the Meadows, you can purchase everything from a 1 BR condominium to a luxury estate home. All properties within the Meadows give you the option of joining the Meadows Country Club for golf, dining, tennis, swimming and fitness. Most communities also have their own community pools.
The Meadows is nestled strategically between two very busy shopping areas - so everything is very close, even though you would never know it by the peaceful lifestyle within its borders. The beach is about 15 minutes away, as is downtown. There is even a quaint little shopping village inside the Meadows, with a community center, deli, restaurant, hair salon and bank.
If you are looking for more mature neighbors and you love golf- put the Meadows on your Sarasota real estate list.
