LAKEWOOD RANCH — Master-planned community Lakewood Ranch and Zilber Residential Group, the multifamily division of Zilber Ltd., announced plans to open Estia at Lakewood Ranch, a new single-family for-rent community.
Estia at Lakewood Ranch is off Lakewood Ranch Boulevard, adjacent to Bob Gardner Park. It will include 230 residences, including 102 one-bedroom, 725-square-foot units within 51 duplexes and 128 stand-alone, 1,000-square-foot, two-bedroom homes, according to a press release.
Estia’s residences are currently under construction and expected to be available for move-in this fall. The model homes and clubhouse are expected to be completed and open this summer.
Each home will have private, fenced-in backyards, screened-in patios and built-in dog doors. The community will have an amenity center with a pool, fitness center, community room and dog park, the release adds.
“We’re thrilled to introduce one of Florida’s first premium, single-family for-rent communities here in Lakewood Ranch and expand upon the variety of housing options available to our prospective residents,” says Kirk Boylston, president of Lakewood Ranch Commercial, in the statement. “For many renters, these new units will serve as strong starter homes and a potential stepping stone to ownership of a more traditional, single-family home in Lakewood Ranch.”
Zilber’s additional communities developed in Lakewood Ranch include Echo Lake Apartments, Waterfront at Main Street Condominiums and the single-family home community LakeHouse Cove at Waterside.
