Sarasota is hailed the city "Where Urban Amenities Meet Small-Town Living.” It’s a place where you can know your neighbors’ names, but are still be able to head to the Sarasota Orchestra or experience fine dining in an award-winning restaurant. You can buy top brand names in your favorite store or shop for unique attire in our stylish boutiques, while still taking your time and indulging in relaxing activities, such as town festivals and sidewalk art shows. What we feel is missing from that description of our city is the connection it has with nature, especially when you live in The Founders Club.
Located just minutes from I-75, a vibrant downtown area, and world-class beaches, The Founders Club provides a unique opportunity for residents to have the best of both worlds: Be close enough to the city to enjoy the benefits of city living, but far enough away to be free of the hustle and bustle associated with it.
Upon passing through the gates of The Founders Club, guests are greeted with more than 700 beautifully landscaped acres of soothing lakes and gently swaying stands of pines, palms, and moss-covered oaks punctuated by curved streets wrapped around tree lined vistas. Interwoven throughout the boutique-style setting are miles of pavered walkways and a picnic pavilion to enjoy the beautiful Sarasota weather, as well as opportunities to spot a variety of birds and wildlife that take residence in our community.
This peaceful setting surrounded by nature is also home to a plethora of activities that will make you feel at home. The golf and country club’s grand, 24,000-square-foot Golf Hall is a wonderful place to meet new friends and indulge in casual of fine dining with fellow neighbors. Get a group together on the dramatic and rewarding Robert Trent Jones, Jr. golf course or on one of the Har-Tru tennis courts, basketball courts, or volleyball courts and you’ll have a full morning of relaxation and exercise before stopping at the Grille Room for a delicious burger or a refreshing salad.
You can also stay indoors and the part in the full calendar of social, sport, and wellness activities, including wine tastings, gourmet kitchen and cooking classes, themed dinner nights, Bingo and Trivia nights, luxury auto and boating showcases, monthly mixers, and much more. There is something for everyone at The Founders Club, and you won’t even have to leave the gates to experience it.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you won’t want to. The benefits of living in a tranquil, natural environment like the Founders Club in Sarasota, FL is that you can be connected to the urban amenities that are specifically mentioned in the city’s slogan. Spend your day shopping in St. Armands Circle, the Mall at University Town Center, or in the many boutiques in Downtown Sarasota. You can also find artwork from all over the world and hours of theatrical entertainment in the Theater and Arts District.
When you purchase your luxury custom home at The Founders Club, you won’t have to give up being surrounded by nature to explore the city life in Florida. You can experience it all and then some, including a luxury living lifestyle in a custom home built by one of their five preferred Sarasota home builders, whether it be a gorgeous estate home or a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Currently, London Bay Homes has The Isabella Grande, The Cameron, and The Davidson available for viewing.
