(West Florida) The housing market in Sarasota County just added an intriguing new option. Introducing The Floridian Club of Sarasota, an exciting long-term lease community for young-at-heart adults that offers a “live here, play here” philosophy with beautiful, hassle-free homes, an amazing array of resort-inspired amenities, and all the fun and activities that one’s social calendar can handle. This extraordinary new community recently celebrated the official beginning of construction with a ground-breaking ceremony attended by development team representatives from The Barrington Group and The Starling Group.
“We are extremely excited to bring the Floridian Club concept to Sarasota and have been overwhelmed by the many positive responses that we’ve already received,” said Larry Lieberman, president and founder of The Barrington Group. “Our long-term lease plan holds a lot of appeal for Baby Boomers, especially those who love to travel but still want the experience of having a close-knit community of friends and all the benefits of homeownership without the hassles. We’re confident that The Floridian Club of Sarasota is going to be a very successful fit in Southwest Florida and look forward to having our first residences ready for move-in by early 2019.”
Nestled on 48 acres in south Sarasota County, The Floridian Club of Sarasota is ideally located in a high-growth area surrounded by wonderful opportunities for shopping, dining, golfing, and experiencing the Gulf beaches and local culture that Sarasota is known for. The Club will feature 261 single-story villas and 48 units in elevator-served buildings. A variety of open floorplans offer one- and two-bedroom layouts with optional garages and stylish designer touches. Residents can lease their units from two to 10 years and have the freedom to personalize their space with their own decorative touches. If the urge to travel takes hold, residents may simply lock the door and leave, and Club staff will keep an eye on things during their absence. It’s like owning a home but without the mortgage or maintenance issues! In fact, a full-time maintenance manager will be onsite to take care of issues inside and out, from repairs and upkeep to something as simple as changing a light bulb or air filter. Club residents have better things to do with their time!
Speaking of better things to do, there will be a great many things to do at The Floridian Club of Sarasota. Work up a sweat in the fitness center or yoga studio, take a stroll with friends along the walking trails, or challenge neighbors to a game of pickleball. A 10,000-square-foot amenity center will serve as the social focal point of the community where residents can gather for a myriad of clubs such as running, cycling, kayaking, wine tasting, cooking, travel, or holiday parties. Enjoy a complimentary coffee in the club’s coffee cafe or cheer for the hometown teams in the BYOB sports bar, which includes a state-of-the-art, wide-screened virtual golf simulator. There’s even a pet spa for the Club’s four-legged residents. A Business Center with free WIFI makes it easy to stay organized and connected, or residents can choose to be lazy and relax by the lakefront swimming pool with shady cabana. The Club will provide a full-time concierge and events coordinator to plan activities and outings for the residents, as well as provide recommendations for local connections and resources.
