About our home

Our luxurious 2000 sq. ft. home is a recently constructed, spacious condominium overlooking a large lake and is located on the West Coast of Florida (55 minutes south of Tampa International Airport). The kitchen was completely replaced spring of 2014, along with many other improvements to lighting, etc. The larger (of two) patios, main bedroom, living room and kitchen/breakfast area all have full views of the large lake. Our furnishings are elegant and contemporary, but also very comfortable and welcoming. We have a good collection of original artwork, which adds to the personal warmth of our home. Each of the two bedrooms has an ensuite bath, and there is an additional 1/2 bath for guests. There is a wet bar with wine chiller, plenty of closet space, a good laundry room a 2-car garage and a Nespresso machine for European and American-style coffees. Large flat screen TVs in the family room and owners' bedroom provide access to cable TV as well as Amazon Prime and Netflix. Our building is directly across from the spacious clubhouse which includes a fitness center, changing rooms, bathrooms, social rooms, a large resort-style pool and a heated "jacuzzi" spa. There are plenty of tables with umbrellas and sun loungers for your use.

Where is it?


Our neighborhood is called The Moorings, and it is located in the larger community of Lakewood Ranch. We are just a couple minutes' walk to a high-end "Main Street" shopping area with plenty of good restaurants, bars, shops, an 8-screen movie theater and miniature golf. A little further away is another neighborhood shopping area with a large grocery store and more businesses and restaurants. The entire area of Lakewood Ranch has more than 100 miles of sidewalks and trails for biking and walking. There are many preserves and it is common to see deer, armadillos, many endangered species of shore birds, eagles and more. We are just 20 minutes from downtown Sarasota, a gem of a small town renowned as the cultural capital of Florida. There are numerous professional theaters, opera, ballet and symphony all available (in their various seasons) in downtown. Just about 5 minutes further drive brings you to St. Armand's circle for very upscale shopping and dining. Or, the same amount of time (25-30 minutes drive) will take you to Lido Beach and Siesta Key Beach. Both are drop-dead gorgeous, uncrowded and safe. Siesta Key Beach has been rated #1 in the U.S. by Dr. Beach (who has been rating U.S. beaches for many years).
Our fabulous International quality shopping mall (5 minutes drive) opened in fall 2014 with an Apple store, excellent shops and a host of new restaurants.
All sorts of spectator sports (in season) including spring training baseball, polo, cricket, soccer tournaments, rowing, extreme frisby, lacrosse, ballroom dance and figure skating.
