If you’re looking seriously at the most desirable luxury homes for sale in the Bradenton-Sarasota area, University Park is a remarkable golf and country club community like no other. The National Association of Homebuilders ranked University Park as the "Best Community Design in America," and the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council recognized University Park as "Best Development in Region." With its emphasis on environmental preservation and stunning visual beauty, University Park has emerged as one of the most desirable and popular communities anywhere on the Bradenton-Sarasota landscape.
University Park’s 31 distinctive neighborhoods offer luxury homes in several styles and price ranges, including convenient, maintenance-free villas, traditional single-family luxury homes, and sprawling, stately mansions set on generous, oversized lots. University Park was developed predominantly in the 1990s, and it’s now part of the booming and popular University Parkway region, near several delightful shopping malls and only minutes from the now-under-construction University Town Center, set to open in 2014 with Macy's, Dillards, Saks, Cartier, and over 100 additional retailers. For the residents of University Park, virtually everything is at their fingertips; they’re also only minutes from Tara Elementary School, Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, and the magnificent Braden River.
University Park is the golfer’s dream-come-true; the golf community’s cornerstone, University Park Country Club is nationally-acclaimed, regularly rated 4-stars by Golf Digest, and voted “Best Place To Play” by Sarasota Magazine for 2 ongoing decades. The club features a challenging 27-hole course designed by Ron Garl that includes scenic fairways, enchanting lakes, and painstaking care with the landscape and environment. University Park Country Club also offers a number of superlative dining options from casual to formal, 11 lighted Har-Tru tennis courts, private golf instruction, a kids’ golf camp each summer, and a contemporary fitness center offering aerobics classes, personal trainers, massage, and a fully-stocked, top-of-the-line pro shop.
