One of the most successful real estate developments by national architect Taylor Morrison was the Esplanade Golf & Country Club, one of the programs pursued by this NYSE-listed company to take advantage of the opportunities available through US-led housing recovery. The Esplanade at Azario brand and its development template was originally used as one of the latest additions to the master-planned Lockwood Range (LWR). Arizona-based developer Scottsdale has copied its motto in several subsequent projects - the Esplanade by Siesta Key, the other two Esplanades in Naples, and another in the parish.
Simply put, the active lifestyle is the primary driver of the Esplanade at Azario and its descendants in the Lockwood Ranch. The development of the association began in 2012 on a 600-acre site strategically located in Manati County, 70th North of State Road, on the northern border of Sarasota County.
Taylor Morrison has developed Esplanade at LWR as a gated and unmanaged community that combines luxury resort-type amenities with homeownership and meets the lifestyle needs and preferences of community residents. For example, the community owns a 6,000-square-foot clubhouse, with a full-time lifestyle director. The facility has a pool style, heated pool, spa, as well as a resistance pool.
Programs and facilities for fitness and health are part of the esplanade at Azario Clubhouse offers. Available fitness classes include water, cardio, flexibility and strength training programs, as well as nutrition consultations and health and care seminars.
The fire pit and barbecue area clubhouse offers a number of options for dining, including a catering kitchen, grand ballroom, library, billiard room, cards and craft room. Play courts are also available for box and pick ball balls.
Esplanade at Azario Amenity Center sales points add tennis facilities. Community residents can get professional advice from USTA / UPSTA tennis experts and participate in club-organized tournaments and competitions for members and guests. The clubhouse also has a fully stocked tennis pro shop and string and equipment repair services.
