SARASOTA, FLORIDA, September 27th, 2016 – Seeking diversity in a search for newly built Sarasota homes for sale in one stop? Consider the new community of Savanna at Lakewood Ranch as amongst your destinations. It now offers many models of varying designs and price points which may just be right for your budget and lifestyle.

Meritage Homes, one of the principal builders in Savanna, opened in September 2016 four fully furnished models for showing to prospective buyers of Bradenton or Sarasota homes for sale. This quartet of home designs offers choices in floor plans starting from a two-bedroom, one-story layout with 2,073 square feet of living area.

Multigenerational Option

The largest option is a two-story model with a floor area of 5,169 square feet featuring eight bedrooms and four baths, ideal as a multigenerational residence. Seven other home designs are available in this new 304-acre development located west of the junction of State Road 64 and Lorraine Road.

The other builder in this community, Lennar Corp., already has two of its Savanna home designs listed amongst Sarasota homes for sale. One of these is its two-story Navona layout with a floor area of 2,765 square feet designed with four bedrooms and entered in the MLS of Sarasota homes for sale with a tag price in the $400s.

Sales-listed in late July and ready for occupancy at Savanna is Lennar’s Tivoli home model also with four bedrooms within a floor plan of 2,267 square feet. Built with a lot of upgrades, this new residence is priced in the mid-$300s range.

Savanna is a very low-density development having been earlier approved for up to 913 homes but is now being developed with just 475 sites. Lennar accounts for 150 of these lots and Meritage holds the rest.

Sales on Smooth Sailing

The first residents in this community were reported to have moved in just in August of 2016, following completion of the property’s gated entrance. The Savanna clubhouse and its amenities are expected to be operational by September. Besides the clubhouse, the facilities awaiting future residents of this community include a resort-style swimming pool with water features, a fitness center, shaded playground, dog park, event lawn, and playing fields.

Just west of Savanna, sales are also moving along smooth at Meritage Homes’ Serenity Creek. Nine newly built residences in this community have been sold since its market debut in summer 2015.

One of the models onsite in this property is Meritage Homes’ Ashwood design which bagged the best in floor plan, architectural detail, and kitchen in its category in the 2015 Manatee-Sarasota Parade of Homes. This home, sales-listed at the $400s has a floor area of 3,306 square feet designed with four bedrooms and four baths, plus a three-bay garage.

Serenity Creek is a showcase of Meritage Homes’ energy-efficient builds noted for its spray-foam insulation, Energy Star appliances, and water-efficient fixtures, amongst other eco-friendly designs. A gated development programmed for 111 homes, this 64-acre community has a playground, trails, and a dog park as added come-ons for searchers of homes for sale in Sarasota and Bradenton.
