The latest custom estate model from Lee Wetherington Homes is underway at The Founders Club

Lee Wetherington Homes has begun construction on the Turnberry, its newest custom model home at The Founders Club, Sarasota’s premier golf club community. Offering 4,199-square-feet of indoor living space, the inspiration home is situated on the community’s 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed golf course at 3712 Caledonia Lane.

The Turnberry’s spacious, open floor plan offers an expansive kitchen, dining room and great room, along with a den for homeowner flexibility. The outdoor living area offers an alfresco kitchen and a custom swimming pool by LeeSure Water Pools, a Lee Wetherington company. The Turnberry will be ready to inspire The Founders Club homebuyers later this year.

Lee Wetherington Homes, a locally owned and operated company located in Lakewood Ranch, is part of The Founders Club’s flourishing Builder Program that gives homebuyers access to a variety of architectural styles and customizable floor plans complementing the community’s natural beauty.

Builder John Cannon Homes has also commenced construction on a new model with views of the community’s championship golf course. Located at 8293 Archers Court, the three-bedroom, three-bath Adelaide will offer more than 5,000 air-conditioned square feet and a gourmet kitchen with a nearby chef’s pantry and a deck for growing herbs. Encompassing an entire wing of the home, the owner’s suite features a private study, exercise room with sauna, and a luxurious bath with its own courtyard. The expansive outdoor living area will feature a fully equipped kitchen and ample space to create an entertainment oasis. A bonus room, golf simulator room, and a pair of guest suites complete the home.

The Founders Club homebuilder AR Homes has recently commenced construction on the new Annabel model. Located at 3727 Caledonia Lane, the home will offer 3,630-square-feet of living space. With three bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, the Annabel will showcase an expansive outdoor living area overlooking The Founders Club’s legendary oak trees.

Award-winning builder London Bay Homes, who also handles sales and marketing for the community, kicked off the year with the sale of its Davidson model. A second elegant model, the Cameron, is currently available for viewing at 8841 Colonels Court.

Situated on almost half an acre, with views of the golf course and tranquil nature preserve, the Cameron model’s enhanced styling elevates the estate’s fresh, coastal-inspired architecture and design, with details like white lap siding, hipped roofs with flat tiles, and a repeating trio of windows adding visual interest.

The three-bedroom, 3,092-square-foot open concept estate offers a luxurious owner’s suite with private pool terrace access. A spa-like bath features dual vanities and a freestanding soaking tub positioned before a dramatic dual-entry Roman shower. 

The Founders Club is planned for a mere 262 homes ranging from 2,200 to more than 6,000 square feet and located within the community’s 700 acres. Curving streets and tree-lined vistas add to the setting, with miles of meandering walkways throughout the community connecting residents with the natural environment. The heart of the community’s active outdoor lifestyle is the 24,000-square-foot Golf Hall. The member-owned club offers casual and fine dining, a golf pro shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms, and a state-of-the-art fitness center, along with Har-Tru® tennis courts, basketball and sand volleyball courts and a picnic pavilion.

The Founders Club’s intimate size and low density is complemented by convenient access to Sarasota’s local restaurants, world-class arts and culture venues, the University Town Center mall, and the area’s Gulf of Mexico beaches. Just outside the gates, residents have quick access through Lorraine Road to a host of activities, restaurants and events in Lakewood Ranch.
