The Meadows, Sarasota, FL
What is The Meadows? Well, as the local post office once told me, The Meadows is like a town itself. The best way to describe this beautiful country-club community located in Sarasota, Florida, is this… Imagine a picturesque 1650-acre retreat filled with tree-canopied streets surrounded by 80 flawless lakes and waterways and preserve areas. The area encompasses 17 miles of roads, 14 miles of sidewalks and biking trails, and a fitness trail that winds through the illustrious, natural atmosphere. But that’s just about the cosmetic beauty of The Meadows… Here are other details on the magnificent community.
Developed by Taylor-Woodrow Homes, The Meadows has more than 3450 residences, offering a wide range of living styles; garden homes, villas, condos, and single-family homes with small and large lots.
The Meadows Community Association (MCA), the governing body of The Meadows, sponsors several monthly events and activities. There are also annual events such as the fall community yard sale at The Meadows Shopping Village as well as the photography show. And let’s not forget about the arts! The “MCA Celebration of the Arts” is held in March for Meadows residents to show off their personal talent and sell their artwork. Stay up-to-date with the monthly community publication The Meadoword.
Like to live in walking distance to restaurants, your bank, or your local hair salon? Well, you are in luck if you live in The Meadows… The Meadows Shopping Village provides a travel agency, a bank, a dentist, different restaurant options, boutiques, barber & beauty shop, a private pre-school and more. Community and holiday events are hosted at the village lakeside terrace for residents and guests to enjoy.
But let’s not forget the prominent neighbor of the community—The Meadow Country Club.
The Meadows Country Club is a member-governed oasis that incorporates our private 18-hole Member’s Course, tennis, fitness and dining facilities in a gorgeous Sarasota, Florida, setting. Our Club atmosphere goes beyond the outstanding sports amenities, plentiful social activities, and terrific dining. The Club and its membership is actively involved in numerous charitable activities during the year.
There are 3 golf courses sure to impress anyone but also 17 HAR-TRU lit tennis courts, country club pools, fitness center and a pro-shop, staffed with top-notch professionals.
The geographical location of The Meadows cannot be beat… located within Sarasota’s Gulf Coast area, The Meadows is within 10 to 15 minutes to downtown Sarasota and the beautiful white sandy beaches. You are only minutes away from Benderson Park as well as the world renown shopping and restaurants of University Town Center Mall (UTC) and St. Armand’s Circle. If you’re looking for the fun nightlife, head downtown where you’ll find theaters, dining, Sarasota Opera, and libations at different clubs/bars.
So if all that is not enough to impress you, maybe the moss-laden oaks, the butterfly gardens, or the pet-friendly walking trails just may. The community is very family friendly with designated school bus stops positioned throughout the area. And don’t let me forget to mention the onsite environmental staff as well as the 24-hour security that lends to an added comfort of safe living. Ride around on your golf cart, stop at one of the beautiful lakes to fish, or take a moment to swing by the Meadows memorial garden to reminisce.
If you want to live near pristine beach life and the downtown attractions yet retreat to your own protected environment, The Meadows is the place to live.
