It's ideally situated just south of the Tampa Bay area, close to the services and entertainment venues of a major metropolitan area but outside of the congestion and hectic pace of city life. Truly, Lakewood Ranch offers a perfect combination of residential neighborhoods, on-site recreation, business parks, medical facilities, and shopping, Lakewood Ranch exudes all requirements for the best of Florida living within a setting distinctly its own.

The Lakewood Ranch real estate market has several “villages” which offer a wide variety of both housing and lifestyles. The villages are encircled by a wealth of natural lakes, from small fishing ponds to 160-acre Lake Uihlein. Lakewood Ranch also includes 54 holes of golf, a fitness center, fine and casual dining, movie theaters, shopping, polo grounds, excellent schools, and healthcare facilities.
