Ample windows of opportunities can be found in the Venice real estate market for Florida properties basking in natural splendor and luxurious amenities. Such choices will invariably include the Venice Golf and Country Club which has proven that real estate properties can indeed be developed in perfect synchrony with Mother Nature.
Such a distinction has been affirmed by the certification that this 460-acre Venice Golf and Country Club real estate development has received as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. This recognition pays tribute to the creation of a wildlife habitat that resulted from the country club's development of its golf links.
All told, there are thirteen natural preserves and twenty-six lakes within the golf complex. Totaling fifty-six acres, this expansive ode to Mother Nature has been meticulously maintained. In a renovation project in 2005, the non-indigenous plants in the development were removed and replaced with plants native to Florida. For this endeavor, the Sarasota County conferred a Resource Conservation award to the Venice Golf and Country Club.
In 2003, the Venice golf complex's clubhouse was also renovated to further enhance club member privileges. The amenities in this hub for community activities include a chic main dining room afforded with enthralling vistas of the country club's pristine natural setting. Gourmet food servings are provided here courtesy of a staff of culinary artists with an extensive collection of recipes suited for various occasions and tastes.
Pursuits of the active and healthy lifestyle too can go in varied ways at the country club. Among its other luxurious facilities are four Har-Tru tennis courts, a modern gym offering several training regimens and a swimming pool designed with two lap lanes. Complementary to these are a kiddies' pool and a jacuzzi.
Gearing up for action in golf would end up in an 18-hole, par 72 layout carved masterfully in the country club enclave. Winding through the serenity of woodlands and lakes, the course plays at a maximum of 6,790 yards. Playing conditions here are superb and was enhanced by replacement of the greens with top-of-the line Tif Eagle Bermuda grass under the country club's renovation in 2005.
The homes in Venice Golf and Country Club enjoy more than the lush environs of the golf course. As refreshing are the lakes and ponds in the fine landscaping within the gated residential enclave which are maintained under the management of a master association independent from the country club. Price postings of Venice Golf and Country Club homes for sale can start in the vicinity of the $200s and present residences with floor plans of around 1,500 square feet. The broad range of options can extend up to homes sales-listed in the ballpark of the $700s tagged on homes having floor spaces of about 4,000 square feet.
