Dreams Come True at The Meadows
Many homebuyers seek more than a mere residence when they're buying one of the magnificent luxury homes for sale in the Sarasota area. Many are seeking to make dreams come true, and that can happen at one of southwest Florida's most venerable country club communities, The Meadows, located just northeast of downtown Sarasota. More than 3,400 luxury homes -- single-family homes, stylish villas, and spacious condos -- are spread across 1,600 acres of abundant Florida oak trees, foliage, nature preserves, lakes, ponds, and of course, scenic golf courses. If you'd like to make dreams come true, The Meadows in Sarasota may be the perfect setting.
At the heart of this vibrant community is The Meadows Country Club. It's private, friendly, entirely member-owned, and it features 3 championship 18-hole courses. Country Club members also enjoy the Junior-Olympic heated pool, the spa, an up-to-the-minute fitness center, racquetball facilities, and 17 lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. These delights are complemented by 12 miles of winding hiking/biking trails and a challenging 1.7-mile fitness trail.
The Heart of The Meadows
At the center of The Meadows you'll also find the magnificent and convenient Meadows Shopping Village, which offers an Italian restaurant, a breakfast diner, a post office, and The Village Pub, featuring live music. Several other impressive restaurants are also set in the community. Everything a savvy homebuyer desires is at your fingertips at The Meadows. The original homes were built from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, and today new, upscale, Mediterranean-style homes are currently being added to The Meadows, a sign of confidence that this community will thrive and prosper for years to come.
And while there's so much right there at The Meadows, one of the community's best features is its convenient location, only ten minutes from downtown Sarasota's many cultural attractions, museums, galleries, performing arts venues, and the spectacular waterfront. Downtown Sarasota is the home of the world-famous Ringling Museum of Art, the Historic Asolo Theater, and the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall; it's also the host of a growing number of impressive annual art, music, and film festivals. Immediately west of downtown sit the Gulf of Mexico, the glittering barrier islands, and Sarasota's 35 miles of sparkling, white-sand beaches including "America's Best Beach," sunny Siesta Beach on Siesta Key. Fishing and boating enthusiasts appreciate the Sarasota area's many storage facilities and full-service professional marinas. The Baltimore Orioles come to town every year for spring training at nearby Ed White Stadium. Plus, at the Meadows, you're 15 minutes from Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport and a mere hour from Tampa International.
