Newest custom home by Nutter Custom Construction nearing completion at The Founders Club

The Founders Club’s curated selection of Sarasota’s finest luxury homebuilders presents a uniquely personalized opportunity to create a new custom home in the sought-after community featuring a Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed championship golf course.

With more than 30 years of high-end residential construction experience in Sarasota, Nutter Custom Construction will soon bring to life a new elegant coastal contemporary home in one of the area’s premier golf club communities.

The private estate will offer three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and nearly 3,700 square feet under air. Ideal for entertaining, the home’s open floor plan includes a study, piano room and a great room that opens into an expansive outdoor living space with a large covered veranda, outdoor kitchen and oversized pool deck.

The wide homesite allows plenty of room for a detached 1,000-square-foot, three-car garage with a true motor court entry and a gracious circular driveway to welcome guests.

“The Founders Club is uniquely one of the few true custom-build communities in the area, and the homebuyers quickly realized it was the perfect setting,” said T.J. Nutter, President of Nutter Custom Construction. “The width of the homesites allow a lot of flexibility in the home’s design, and the new residence will offer privacy and preserve views along with a glimpse of the golf course.”

The new home is scheduled for completion in summer of 2020.

The home also showcases the strength of The Founders Club Builder Program, which offers homebuyers the option of selecting from one of five preferred builders. In addition to Nutter Custom Construction, homebuyers at The Founders Club can also select from other top-rated builders, including Anchor Builders, Arthur Rutenberg-Nelson Homes, Lee Wetherington Homes and London Bay Homes.

On the heels of the Nutter Custom Construction estate, Lee Wetherington Homes will commence construction of a new custom home this spring.

Taking advantage of the Builder Program also means gaining access to the community’s intimate setting of 262 homesites. Ranging from nearly half to almost two acres, an array of homesites sizes offer possibilities for accommodating homes offering 2,200 to more than 6,000 square feet. Home and homesite packages at The Founders Club start in the $700,000s. There are no CDD fees.

“Creating a home that reflects the uniqueness of its owner is a hallmark of The Founders Club,” said Steve Walker, Senior Project Manager for London Bay Homes, who manages all sales and marketing for the community. “We guide homebuyers in selecting their dream combination of the right builder, picture-perfect homesite, and dream home design that suits them best.”

Whether enjoying a round of golf or gathering on the verandah overlooking the 18th hole, residents enjoy an array of amenities, including the classic Golf Hall, which hosts a full calendar of activities and events, with the purchase of an optional Club membership. Har-Tru tennis courts, basketball and sand volleyball courts and a picnic pavilion are available to all residents.

And just outside the gates, residents now have quick access through Lorraine Road to a host of activities, restaurants and events in Lakewood Ranch. Less than 20 minutes away, acclaimed local restaurants, boutiques, and arts and cultural venues in downtown Sarasota also offer convenient options for vibrant living, along with the pristine, white-sand beaches near the Sarasota Bay.
