Taylor Morrison is pleased to announce nearly 400 acres of land adjacent to Esplanade, one of the developer’s most popular communities in Lakewood Ranch, is under contract. This land purchase will allow Taylor Morrison to add an 18-hole championship golf course to the community, thus prompting an official name change to Esplanade Golf and Country Club at Lakewood Ranch. The official name change is planned for early 2013, just after closing on the parcel which is scheduled for later this year.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to expand and enhance Esplanade in this way,” said Cammie Longenécker, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison West Florida. “There has been tremendous interest in Esplanade among potential buyers from the very beginning, even before we broke ground on the property, and we expect that the addition of a golf course and clubhouse is only going to fuel that. Esplanade was already a stand-out community because of its exceptional variety of amenities and activities. This is basically the icing on the cake.”
Located just north of State Road 70, Esplanade Golf and Country Club is a gated and maintenance-free community with California Tuscan architecture. With its new expansion, the resort lifestyle community will encompass over 600 acres and will consist of 1,250 home sites in addition to a championship golf course and two fabulous amenity centers.
The south center is home to an approximately 6,000-square-foot clubhouse with an on-site lifestyle director. There is plenty to see and do here, such as catering and outdoor kitchens, fitness and aerobic center, a grand ballroom, billiard room with private library, and a cards and craft room. Outdoor amenities include a beautiful lagoon and lap pool as well as a resistance pool, spa, pickle ball and bocce ball courts, barbecue area and fire pit, and a canoe and kayak launch. There is even a formal events lawn, fitness lawn, adventure playground, and fenced bark park.
The centerpiece of the north campus will be the 18-hole golf course, designed in eco-friendly manner by C.W. Golf Architecture. Also featured are Har-Tru tennis courts, a lagoon pool with snack bar, a golf and tennis pro shop, and additional bocce ball courts. Here, the impressive 12,000-square foot clubhouse will feature a restaurant and bar, full-service catering kitchen, library and billiard room plus much more. A 6,000-square-foot wellness center will provide ample opportunity for residents to pursue a healthy lifestyle with the assistance of a fitness director as well as a fitness and aerobic center, spa and kitchenette.
Esplanade Golf and Country Club is the only village of its kind in Lakewood Ranch with an active lifestyle concept that includes a full-time Lifestyle Director on site. Also notable at Esplanade Golf and Country Club is the abundance of open spaces and the opportunities to enjoy nature. Miles of walking trails with gazebos crisscross the village. All building and development is keeping with environmental standards set by Lakewood Ranch as the largest green certified community in America.
