Boca Royale Golf & Country Club, ideally located just minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches of Manasota Key, is embedded in a private 1,000-acre gated community with sub-tropical landscaping.
Elegant homes are set in a lush setting of mature oaks, tropical palm trees, pristine lakes, and nature preserves.
The upscale Country Club Community offers an 18-hole, semi-private golf course and a variety of other activities, like tennis, bocce ball, pickleball, croquet, and a fully-equipped fitness center.
Boca Royale also has two restaurants, one for fine and one for casual dining, and in addition, the community has a wealth of social activities.
The location of Boca Royale is somewhat unique. While all other communities are part of a cluster between Manasota Beach Road and Center Road, Boca seems to be a little off the beaten path.
Nobody would think that this community is part of Wellen Park - but it is!
Sarasota National is a beautiful master-planned community developed by Lennar. There are only two gated golf course communities in Wellen Park, Boca Royale and Sarasota National. The 18-hole championship golf course covers one-half of the land and is surrounded by wetlands and nature preserves.
Members can take advantage of a 5,300 square-foot golf clubhouse with dining, 19th Hole bar and lounge, card rooms, and locker rooms.
If you are not a golf club member, you will still love the "Palm Club's" amenities. The deal includes a resort pool with spa and beach entry, a poolside Tiki Bar, spa treatment rooms, event lawn, and sports courts. In Sarasota National, you do not need to waste your life as a couch potato. Get out of that piece of furniture and dive into the action.
You will find beautiful homes in Sarasota National - a home for every budget and taste. Carefree Carriage and Coach Homes and spacious single-family Executive, Manor, and Patio Homes are available.
If you like to socialize and want to be out and about, take a swim in the lap pool, relax in the lagoon pool, play tennis, play bocce ball, or shed a few pounds in the state-of-the-art fitness center, you will love Island Walk.
Two community centers and a ballroom are part of the deal as well. If you are running out of ideas and don't know what to do with your time, ask the activities director, and he will point you in the right direction. However, this may not happen very often because you will be busy without asking him.
The setting of the community is pretty unique in Wellen Park. All homes are sitting on little peninsulas interconnected with bridges. Thus each home has at least a beautiful partial lake view.
Island Walk is a maintenance-free community. You don't have to cut the grass or trim your hedges and trees. For a reasonable Home Owner Association fee, you can ensure that your property will always look neat and clean.
Don't confuse this "Island Walk" with the one in Naples. The community in Naples, although looking pretty much like this one, is a 55+ community.
Grand Palm is a Neal Community, and it is the closest Wellen Park Community to Venice. Nature-focused and amenity-rich, this beautiful community can pride itself on being one of a kind.
The focal points are the fitness pool for swimming laps and the resort-style pool with a water slide. Miles of walking and bicycle trails are available. You can also cast a rod and reel into the big Adventure Lake from the private Lookout Point Island. Launch your kayak or canoe and watch the wildlife from a different perspective.
Play with your furry friend at the Big Bark/ Playful Paws dog parks. If you have kids, they will love the splash park, the Adventure Playground, and the four-square courts.
Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the state-of-the-art fitness center, basketball, tennis, bocce ball, and volleyball courts. A large grass field is perfect for playing baseball or kickball. In case you are running out of ideas, ask the on-site activities director for help. The director is always trying to keep the residents busy with fresh ideas.
Gran Paradiso welcomes all ages and is by far not a 55+ community. The gorgeous community center, right behind the gate, is the focal point of the master-planned community. You can choose from a variety of villas, townhouses, next-generation homes, condos, and mansions.
Gran Paradiso consists of two sections. The much bigger section belongs to Lennar, the smaller part to Sam Rodgers. The homebuilder Lennar is the elephant in the room, but Sam Rodgers, the developer before Lennar took over, has kept his little spot where he builds beautiful, upscale homes. However, construction will come to an end. Very soon, the builders will have all planned homes in place. If you are interested in the Gran Paradiso Community, only retail homes will be available.
Wider lots, tile roofs, and 3-car garages - if this is what you are looking for, you may feel at home when you come to The Oasis at Wellen Park. Yes, for people who need a little elbow space, this community might be the right option.
The Oasis is a cozy community featuring only 150 single-family homes. Homes sizes range between 2,100 sq. ft. and 4,000 sq. ft., with prices starting in the high $300s. However, it shouldn't be a surprise for you that, depending on your wish list (customization), the sky is wide open.
The Preserve is one of the smaller neighborhoods in the master-planned Wellen Park community. This community has only 108 home sites; however, the lots also tend to be a little larger than the lots in other communities.
The Texas-based homebuilder, D.R. Horton, opened sales at the Preserve in the year 2017. Besides scenic preserve and lake views, the community comes bundled with an active lifestyle. The community has low HOA fees, and the builder features single-family homes and villas.
