With a multitude of cultural attractions, exquisite fine dining, a plethora of shopping destinations, white, sandy beaches, beautiful lush nature, and so much more, Sarasota FL has everything you need to enjoy a carefree Florida lifestyle. If you’re looking to join the homeowners enriching their lives in our beautiful city, ranked #2 in the best places to retire list on Livability. com, consider the award-winning, boutique-style community of The Founders Club.
The Founders Club engages all who pass through its gates with more than 700 acres of natural, lush landscape punctuated by curved streets wrapped around tree lined vistas. Step into the Sarasota luxury community and you are instantly captivated by the serene, boutique style setting and a comforting sense that you have arrived home. But more than just a tranquil setting, the luxury home community is conveniently located, rich with a growing list of amenities, enlivened by camaraderie among its members and residents, and decorated by luxury Sarasota real estate.
Just minutes from I-75, a vibrant downtown area, and world-class beaches, the boutique-style community gives its residents the best of both worlds by being close enough to enjoy the benefits of city living, but far enough away to be free of the hustle and bustle associated with them. In this prime location, our residents can escape to the sun and fun on the award-winning beaches found along the Sarasota Keys before enjoying some post-beach shopping pleasure in St. Armands Circle and finishing the night enthralled with the entertainment in the Theater and Arts District. Residents can also revel in shopping bliss at the new Mall at University Town Center, where shopping is made easy with 880,000 square feet of retail space featuring Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Dillard's and more than 100 stores and restaurants.
Upon returning home to their Sarasota luxury community, residents are never short of leisure or amusement as the golf and country club community’s professional staff maintains a full calendar of social, sport and wellness activities in its 24,000-square-foot Golf Hall. Golf is also a worthy option with the dramatic and rewarding Robert Trent Jones, Jr. golf course. Limited to just 275 golf memberships, The Founders Golf and Social Club offers year-round golf with no tee times required and Sarasota’s only traditional caddie program. Members also have access to state-of-the-art practice facilities utilizing Trackman® Technology to get a skillful jumpstart before taking part in different men’s, women’s, and couples’ golf events held.
If the allure of the neighborhood has yet to settle in, the Founders Club homes are the final piece to this luxurious living puzzle. Only 262 home sites can be found among the 700 beautifully landscaped acres and each is generously sized to adequately furnish your dream home. Estate home sites range from a half acre to one acre and every single home is surrounded by lake views, nature preserves, wetlands, a golf course, or often all four, making an oversized home site ideal to truly appreciate all our Sarasota luxury community has to offer. Prospective homeowners looking to uncover the luxury living treasure of our community can schedule a tour of one of the model homes built exclusively by America’s Best Builder, London Bay Homes. Ranging from quaint golf cottages to exquisite estate homes, the models available for viewing will allow you to walk into a new world of architectural elegance and distinguishable design.
