Heron Creek Country Club, North Port

The North Port real estate market may be in the doldrums like its nearby areas in southern Sarasota County, Florida. Yet, pockets of unbridled enthusiasm from home buyers and investors can be felt principally because of properties at the Heron Creek Golf and Country Club. This community consists of 676 acres of masterfully developed golf links that have become the platform for vast, scenic natural preserves and spawned a rich collection of resort-style amenities and facilities.

The master plan for the Heron Creek real estate development also brought in a magnificent clubhouse with a 21,000-square-foot floor plan. Inside this edifice of classic colonial architecture are splendid dining rooms such as the Top of the Green, Creekside Café, and the Heron’s Roost suitable for large and small social gatherings.

The fullness of life is likewise celebrated in other country club facilities like its resort-type swimming pool, spa, sauna, and an air-conditioned fitness room. Action shifts to high gear at the country club’s tennis center with five lighted Har-Tru courts and learning programs under instructors accredited by the USTPA. The center also helps facilitate member participation in league and club tournaments while a tennis pro shop ensures that club members have all the game’s essential paraphernalia.

The sports competitions can further intensify at Heron Creek’s 27-hole golf course designed by the master links architect Arthur Hills. The three nine-hole layouts, the Oaks, Marsh, and Creek, present varying elevations and challenges. Golfers are afforded scenic views in a play across marshes and waterways guarded by lush, sprawling oak trees in a nature preserve encompassing over 430 acres.

To enjoy full privileges in golf and tennis as well as access to all club facilities, platinum or gold club membership packages are available. For those who only prefer tennis playing privileges in addition to access to the fitness center and social amenities, a sports membership package will be the right choice. Likewise, there are seasonal and corporate memberships for privileges in sports and golf.

The homes in Heron Creek nestle on an expanse of about 200 acres on the fringes of the awe-inspiring golf course. Posted prices of Heron Creek homes for sale can range from the low $200s to the mid-$400s, and floor areas at between 1,800 and 3,000 square feet.

There are still many vacant lots in the residential community which are offered at the $59,900-$75,000 price range. Ideal for these build-ready home sites are single-family residences with floor plans of 1,600-2,500 square feet which can truly inject investor enthusiasm in the Sarasota Florida real estate market.
