The Founders Club Homes for Sale
Alan Atchley (Atchley International Realty, LLC)
The Founders Club

To those who can already afford- and would want to move out of the fast lane, the best real estate options can be found at The Founders Club, a prime choice in the Sarasota real estate market. The Founders Club real estate development was inspired by the founding fathers of Sarasota led by John Hamilton Gillespie, one of the immigrants from Scotland who introduced the game of golf to the US in the 1880s. Eventually, he became Sarasota mayor in the early 1900s which certainly helped to entrench the sport in the country and for golf to later become a catalyzing adjunct to the real estate industry in our area.

Exclusivity and luxury are the main features of this golf enclave. Any lavish elegance, however, is tempered by the values and tradition so revered in the ancient and royal game. Sustainable development was likewise adopted in setting up golf complex, resulting in the preservation and enhancement of the property's 700-acre natural setting.

All together, there are 100 acres of lakes, woodlands, and wetlands at The Founders. Within this expanse is a magnificent 24,000-square-foot clubhouse dubbed as the Golf Hall that provides a rich source of club member privileges. It has splendid dining areas including a bar and grille. Also accessible to members are a modern fitness center, locker rooms and cozy lounges, in addition to courts for playing tennis, basketball, and volleyball. There are miles of paved pathways meandering within the lush environs of the complex for leisurely walks and meditation.

All but proper, a golf course of Scottish inspiration was built in The Founders. This 18-hole, par 72 layout is from the drawing boards of Robert Trent Jones, a course architect of worldwide renown. These links tour at 7,094 yards with a gently rolling terrain make more awe-inspiring by the natural preserves created within the golf enclave.

Homes in The Founders Club are of classic styles and designs that mirror the community's easy and laid-back lifestyle. Reflecting their upscale market positioning, sales-listed residences are spacious and sizes can range from 3,000 square feet to over 8,000 square feet. Posted prices can start at around the $750s. Vacant lots out of the 262 home sites in the community can be sales-listed too with prices ranging from $125,000 to more than $1 million.

The Founders Club homes for sale are studies in elegance that express individuality. The spirit of oneness, nonetheless, has been eloquently manifested in several awards of excellence that the community has received which likewise tell of the traditions and values that shaped this golf and residential development.
