Sarasota County's new construction homes aren't just spreading east, they're heading south, too. National builder PulteGroup recently closed on a 44-acre parcel of land for a new community, Legacy Groves, in Nokomis, just north of Venice in south Sarasota County.

In April, the homebuilder also announced another project to set 166 new homes on 32 acres at Waterside in Lakewood Ranch that should be available in spring. In 2020, it developed a 472-home community, also in Lakewood Ranch called Sapphire Point, among others across the region.

Plans for Legacy Groves are to build a gated, enclave-style community of 138 single-family homes and twin villas. Model homes are expected to break ground in early 2023, with anticipated completion and sales planned for mid-2023. Villas start from the $400,000s and single-family homes start in the $500,000s.

Two entrances are slated for Albee Farm Road, just north of its intersection with Florence Street and Edmonson Road. A 120-year-old oak tree will be an entryway focal point to the new community, including a neighborhood pool and covered pool cabana. Legacy Groves is located within a 10-minute drive of area beaches and the city of Venice.

Other location perks include proximity to healthcare services at the new Sarasota Memorial Hospital, and big-name retailers are minutes away along with the Costco-anchored Sarasota Square mall. Nearby parks offer outdoor fun and biking along the 20-mile Legacy Trail, only a half mile away, and golfers can check out six nearby public courses. At the same time, baseball fans can follow the 2021 World Champion Atlanta Braves during spring training at CoolToday Park.
