Star Farms Lakewood Ranch is a new development in the northeast section of the community, west of I-75 and just off SR-64. The site is being developed by Forsestar, Co., a majority-owned subsidiary of D.R. Horton, and the first homes will be built by D. R. Horton.
The 700-acre gated neighborhood will eventually consist of 1,500 single family homes, townhomes and villas. There will eventually be a choice of builders, including semi-custom homes by Arthur Rutenberg.
Homes by D. R. Horton will be split between their Express Series and Premium Series. There will be 458 single-family homes built in the Express Series, and 127 single-family homes in the Premium Series. The latter will feature open floorpans with high ceilings, 3-car garages, and granite countertops throughout.
Amenities in the community will include a Resort Club, Resort Pool, Wellness Complex, Dog Park, Playground, Adventure Retreat, Tennis and other sports, and an outdoor grilling area.
