Legends at Tatum Ridge Homes for Sale – Sarasota, Florida 34240

Legends at Tatum Ridge Homes for Sale

The Legends at Tatum Ridge is a gated community less than a half mile north of Fruitville Road in east Sarasota. Homes for sale in this enclave (listed in the MLS just as Tatum Ridge) are emblematic of quiet, countryside living.

The greens and fairways of the Tatum Ridge Golf Links provide much of the charming backdrop for this community. Developed in 1989 well ahead of the Tatum Ridge residential neighborhood, this golf and country club flaunts an 18-hole golf course with well-preserved wetlands, lush woodlands, and 11 lakes.

The western border of the Tatum Ridge neighborhood is wedged directly to the golf course, thus sharing the beauty of most of the links’ nature preserves and ponds. Within the community itself the splendor of landscaping is evident in the property’s lush greeneries, magnolias, and palm trees. As a result of Tatum Ridge’s natural setting, Florida wildlife, such as deer, bobcats, raccoons and opossums, thrives in it.

Although the Legends of Tatum Ridge is practically a golf community, it isn’t mandatory for its residents to become members of their neighboring country club. A membership though would be quite tempting, especially for golfing residents. The Tatum Ridge links is one the top semi-private golfing destinations in Sarasota, as its championship, Scottish-style golf course is designed by noted links architect Ted McAnlis.

Manned by a courteous staff, the Tatum Ridge country club provides other amenities including golf practice areas and a golf academy, a pro shop, and a restaurant.

Centex’s Entry

Legends at Tatum Ridge Homes for Sale

All these facilities were already well in place when the residential community of the Legends at Tatum Ridge was developed in the early 2000s. The community’s developer, national homebuilder Centex (turned a unit of the Pulte Group), thus just focused on the landscaping and home construction within the neighborhood and set no more common amenities within it. As a result, Tatum Ridge homeowners pay low HOA fees which mainly cover the maintenance of the neighborhood’s common areas.

Centex built a total of 162 Legends residences, with their lots backed up either to greenbelts or woodlands or to one of the water features in Tatum Ridge. These dwellings feature floor areas of between 1,500 and 2,900 square feet designed with three to five bedrooms. The Florida modern architectural style dominates in this community wherein the top home picks have swimming pools and covered lanais. The asking prices of Tatum Ridge homes for sale range between the upper $200s and the $400s.
