Country Meadows, one of Sarasota's Hidden Neighborhoods

Country Meadows is located near 17th Street and Honore Avenue in Sarasota, yet is tucked away behind a large nature preserve and is shielded by a lake from busy roads. This smaller neighborhood of 125 homes is bordered on the west by Chimney Creek, the north by The Meadows, the east by Honore Avenue and the south by 17th Street. Country Meadows Boulevard is the main ingress/egress at two points from 17th Street on either side of the lake which adds to the private nature of the neighborhood. Nearly half of the homes back onto the lake while the rest are located on seven short, dead-end streets extending off the main road. Though the neighborhood is fairly young being developed in the mid 80s, the landscaping is mature with an abundance of Palms, Oaks, Pines and Bougainvillea creating a lush landscape. All utilities are underground adding to the natural appeal.


Country Meadows Area

Most homes are Florida Ranch style of block and stucco construction with brick or stucco facades. They are 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms, mostly 2 car garages with nearly half built with lanais and pools. Many of the Residents are original Owners so they are Retirees now creating a sense of stability and community. There is a mandatory HOA with annual fees of $400. The association hosts block parties and fundraisers to improve the community.

Neighborhood amenities are all close by: Lockwood Ridge Road and 17th Street hosts a shopping center with a grocery, banks and other stores. At 12th Street and Tuttle, the Orioles are in town for Spring Training at Ed Smith Stadium along with additional activities. Downtown Sarasota is within a 12 minute drive west and the new University Town Center is 10 minutes or less north. For dedicated pet owners, Sarasota County created Paws Park nearby in 1999. The City of Sarasota owns and operates the Bobby Jones Golf Course near Fruitville and Beneva Roads.
