Homes For Sale Arbor Grande in Lakewood Ranch

After 25 years of award-winning residential development, the Lakewood Ranch master-planned development continues to expand to the north and south. Arbor Grande is a relatively new village of Lakewood Ranch that represents northward expansion; it is a gated community located 10 miles east of Downtown Bradenton, and it offers a great quality of life for first-time home buyers, families, single professionals, and retirees.

Development of Arbor Grande started in 2016 as part of a project to gauge interest among home buyers in Manatee County. At the time, this section of Lakewood Ranch was just beginning to attract established builders such as CalAtlantic, which is now part of Lennar. Nowadays, Arbor Grande is part of the upscale Esplanade district, which is known for its country clubs, golf courses, nature preserves, and fine neighborhoods.

Spacious Single-Family Homes and Cozy Villas

The architectural styles at Arbor Grande range from Mediterranean revival to Spanish Colonial and European cottage homes. When compared to other parts of Lakewood Ranch, the Esplanade district offers more space and residential luxury; as such, even the two-bedroom attached villas of Arbor Grande offer almost 2,000 square feet of living space. At the upper range of the properties in this neighborhood, you can find even larger single-family homes and two-story estates with up to six bedrooms.

Arbor Grande was one of the final projects developed by the luxury home division at CalAtlantic before the merger with Lennar. What this means for house hunters is that they can find sumptuous features such as tiled roofs, covered lanais, granite and quartz countertops, linen cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and more. Some of the homes in Arbor Grande offer nice views of ponds while others are nestled within nature preserves. The entire community is surrounded by lush greenbelt spaces that provide a nice privacy buffer.
