Welcome to Lakewood Ranch

Master-planned residential community centered around a life of decadence, leisure, and golf.
 
Lakewood Ranch is a beautiful, multi-generational planned community in southeastern Manatee County. Stretching across 50 square miles, Lakewood Ranch feels like a town of its own, filled with fantastic opportunities for recreation, dining, entertainment, and shopping. 
 
A family-centered community built on land previously used for cattle grazing and a timber ranch, Lakewood Ranch offers residents a chance to live in a place with nature around every corner, boutiques, acclaimed restaurants, and many festivities hosted throughout the year. With so many agricultural farms in the area, Lakewood Ranch has cultivated a distinctive southern vibe that sets it apart and fosters a unique hometown feeling. This community offers a plethora of both gated and non gated residential options.
 

What to Love

  • Conveniently close to Sarasota while still far enough away to feel like another world entirely
  • A golfer’s dream with an abundance of verdant, manicured course, three of which are exclusive to Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club members
  • Educational opportunities are unparalleled, with top-notch schools that include mainstream public schools and several private institutions
  • Many trails are available for both walking and biking, ensuring there are plenty of opportunities to live a healthy lifestyle

People & Lifestyle

This upscale area is one of the only communities where you can center your life around access to the putting green. Many of the residences here even come with prestigious golf memberships. That’s a significant draw to retirees looking to relax and play the greatest game during their best years. 
 
Composed of more than 20+ attractive hamlets (gated and non), Lakewood Ranch has something for every lifestyle. It’s classic suburbia with an air of refinement and none of the mundanity.
