When looking for a place to live, you likely have a long list of requirements. Your new home should cater to the needs of you and your family. But it’s also important to be a part of a community, somewhere  safe and quiet, but never boring. You like the idea of living in a friendly, suburban town, but that doesn’t mean you don’t love city life as well. Also, like a lot of homeowners, you probably like to get out and enjoy the great outdoors too. While it may seem impossible to find a community that meets all these requirements, such a place does exist. Here are just a few of the reasons you take a look at Country Club East homes for sale in Lakewood Ranch.

Beautiful Development

The designers of Country Club East did a brilliant job of creating a development that captures all that’s so desirable about Florida living. The community features more than 1,300 homes in 18 neighborhoods, mostly built in the Mediterranean Villa style, and built by 7 prestigious home builders. Particular attention is paid to clean indoor air, energy efficiency, and drought resistant landscaping. Country Club East is one of the most beautiful gated communities in Lakewood Ranch, one of the largest master planned “green” communities in the nation.


When discussing homes for sale in Country Club East, we must talk about the amenities. First off, Country Club East features The Royal Lakes Golf Course at Lakewood Ranch, one of the three golf courses of Lakewood Ranch Country Club. This 18-hole, Rick Ribbons-designed course provides panoramic views of surrounding lakes and features a putting course, practice range, pro shop, and golf academy for golfers of all ages. You can choose to dine at The Lodge, the clubhouse featuring amazing views of holes 9 and 18. No worries if you aren’t a golfer, all Country Club East residents get full access to The Retreat, with zero entry-pool, fitness center  and club room with kitchen, lounge area and billiards table.

The Location

With quiet neighborhoods, miles of green space, and gated entry, Country Club East gives you the peace and safety you’re looking for in a home. Don’t worry about becoming too complacent, however. With easy access to I-75, you’re minutes from anywhere you need to be throughout Manatee and Sarasota counties, whether to hit the city or stretch out on a white sand beach. If you’re looking for even more, Tampa and St. Petersburg are just a short drive away.

The Community of People

Maybe it’s the weather, the clubhouse and Retreat, or the laid-back atmosphere, but the people in Country Club East are some of the friendliest you’re likely to ever meet. Whether you’re walking your dog, riding your bike, or relaxing by one of the pools, it doesn’t take much to strike up a conversation. The next thing you know, you may have a full schedule of backyard barbecues to attend.
