Yes, Lakewood Ranch is a great community with alot to offer. Top rated schools, lots of social activities, a beautiful Country Club, golf courses, polo fields and more.
However, they do have high CDD fees that are included in your tax bill that is an understandable turnoff to many people.
There are areas adjacent to Lakewood Ranch that are just as beautiful but with no CCD fees.
I would be happy to email you properties that match your needs to review. Just drop me an email with your criteria and I'll run the search and send you the results.
