London Bay’s new Isabella Grande model at The Founders Club enhances popular floor plan

SARASOTA, Fla. (April 22, 2015) – London Bay Homes has started construction on the new single-family Isabella Grande model home at The Founders Club, Sarasota’s traditional golf and social community recently named Best Overall Community.

The Isabella Grande is an enhanced version of the builder’s popular Isabella Reserve Collection home, dedicating its extra 300 square feet of living space to the master suite area. The new model will have 3,322 square feet of living space and a three-car garage.

The Isabella Grande offers a study, formal dining room, three bedrooms and three full baths.

The model will overlook nature preserve and lake views and offer a covered patio and wrap-around outdoor living room with a summer kitchen. Sliding glass doors in the study, café and great room will connect to alfresco spaces and an open sun deck around the swimming pool, which will feature a raised spa and spillovers.

The kitchen, which will offer a freestanding island breakfast bar and two pantry closets, adjoins the café, a casual eating area.

The expanded master suite will feature a larger bedroom, his-and-her walk-in closets, and a reconfigured bathroom with separate vanities and a freestanding tub positioned in front of the two-entry shower.

Each of the Isabella Grande’s guest rooms will have a walk-in closet; one also offers a private full bath. The new model will offer 4,764 total square feet, including front porch, patio, outdoor living area and garage.

The Isabella Grande will feature interior design by Romanza Interior Design.

London Bay Homes offers a selection of more than 18 single-family detached villa homes, Reserve Collection homes and one-of-a-kind estates ranging from 2,500 to more than 6,000 square feet of living space. Home and homesite packages are priced from the $750,000s to more than $5 million.

London Bay Homes builds its homes using the latest information, products and technology available in building science, including the BEP Blue Barrier system that protects against mold issues and structural damage from moisture intrusion.

The 700-acre Founders Club offers large homesites overlooking nature preserves, lakes and fairways along the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed championship golf course. The community features 100 protected live oaks and a natural habitat that attracts a variety of birds and wildlife.

A traditional private golf and social club community, The Founders Club offers 18 holes of golf and the area’s only traditional caddie program. Golfers are allowed to walk the course, and membership is limited to 275 to ensure members enjoy year-round golf with no tee time required.

Training facilities include two putting greens, a recently enlarged short game area, and state-of-the-art TrackMan radar technology offered through Florida Golf Performance Center.

The 24,000-square-foot Golf Hall, overlooking an oak hammock and the 18th hole, offers a main dining room, bar and grille, outdoor verandah, and private dining room for casual and fine dining. The facility also has a professionally staffed and fully stocked golf pro shop, state-of-the-art fitness center, and men’s and women’s locker rooms and lounges.

The club offers a vibrant, active social calendar and an in-season reciprocal partnership with Sarasota Yacht Club.

Amenities at The Founders Club are designed to foster camaraderie among residents and a connection with nature. Miles of winding boardwalks and paved walkways meander throughout the community, which is planned for just 262 homes.

The Founders Club also features Har-Tru tennis courts, basketball and sand volleyball courts, and a picnic pavilion. Fitness and wellness classes, educational and instructional programs, and social gatherings are coordinated by a professional staff.

The Founders Club is just minutes from Sarasota’s famed Gulf of Mexico beaches, the new University Town Center mall, and the acclaimed local restaurants, boutiques and arts and cultural venues of downtown Sarasota.

The Founders Club Sales Center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is located at 3001 Founders Club Drive, three miles east of I-75 on Fruitville Road, Exit 210.
