Lakewood Ranch

As one of the original builders in Lakewood Ranch; Arthur Rutenberg Homes’ is proud to be one of the cornerstones of this beautiful master planned community.  Starting in Summerfield thorough Edgewater and then the Country Club the impact on design and the quality of the community were greatly impacted by our work.  Starting with the first Estate Lot / Ultra Custom community in the Country Club named Westchester; our Tuscany II model raised the bar of expectations, something that still drives Lakewood Ranch today.

Many of the most famous homes in Lakewood Ranch and in Arthur Rutenberg Homes legendary Design Collection we have built have been our models like the Tuscany II, the Rhapsody, The St Augustine VII, the Biscayne III and most notably the Bellagio II.  If you have been a fan of Arthur Rutenberg Homes for any length of time you have seen the St Augusitne VI models’ picture in all of our collaterals.  We continue the trend with our 2012 Model of the Year Bermuda 1129B model in Camargo in Country Club East and our beautiful Bardmoor 1172B model in Secret Harbor.

Today, Nelson Homes, Inc. is pleased to be one of the feature builders in County Club East at Lakewood Ranch and now the Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch.  There are currently six neighborhoods that we build in and six Country Club East including Camargo, Royal Valley, Secret Harbor, Hazeltine, Leopard Creek and Valderrama.  In Lake Club, we are working towards opening our beautiful new Marbella plan in the Vineyards section.

Marshalls Landing

Life on the River at Marshall’s Landing is like stepping back in time.  A time a little less hectic…a little more peaceful…and just…simpler.  Centrally located near shopping, Ellenton Outlet Mall, I-75, and just minutes to Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch – yet unusually private and serene.

Your home is available with an optional boat dock where you can explore and enjoy the lazy Braden River, or head about 15 minutes north and be on the wide and expansive Manatee River.  Another 15 minues west and you will find yourself in the open waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico!

Why do we live in Florida?  Marshall’s Landing is the answer to that question!  A unique enclave of Mediterranean, West-Indies, and Key-West style single-family homes, exlusively private and gated – Marshall Key can be where you call home from the mid $500,000’s including homesite!

The Concession

Named “Best New Private Course of 2006” by Golf Digest magazine, The Concession Golf Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus in association with Tony Jacklin.

Jack and Tony succeeded in their mission to find great land and create a walkable course with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Created in the spirit of the Ryder Cup, The Concession, is enhanced by a great caddie program and first class dining in an unpretentious, yet high-quality manner. This 18-hole par 72 course is set on 520 acres of ruggedly pristine land dotted with immense oaks and majestic pines. It totals 7,474 yards and runs three miles from tip to tip. With only a few rooflines visible from the course, its core design offers a natural and uninterrupted golf experience. Coupled with scenic water features, breathtaking vistas await every turn.

Meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout The Concession. From interior design to instruction and maintenance, we strive to provide a full Club experience.
