Lakewood Ranch, FL--The new San Mateo model in The Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch demonstrates once again why Lee Wetherington Homes has been named America’s Best Builder. The luxury home builder has drawn on almost a half-century of experience to fashion this European-style country house, which blends elegance and comfort with stunning results. Superb design and high-quality construction have resulted in a flowing floor plan, significant architectural features, and attention to detail throughout.
“We’re proud to be part of The Lake Club,” said Gregg Carlson, CEO of Lee Wetherington Homes. “We continue to design new models in new communities, and to offer them at moderate prices—without ever compromising quality. The San Mateo, at a base price of $737,300 meets these criteria easily.”
The exquisite San Mateo provides three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a great room, kitchen, dining area, den, and laundry room within 2,960 square feet of living area. The outdoor living/dining area, garage and entry bring the total to 4,277 square feet. A three-car, side-entry garage is neatly placed at the end of the guest wing, while the master bedroom is the exclusive occupant of a private wing.
Eight-foot-tall doors with custom iron trim open to the San Mateo’s foyer, great room, and a breathtaking view of both inside and outside. Rooms in the entire back of the home—great room, kitchen, dining area, and master bedroom—overlook the casual outdoor living/dining area, its pool, and a sparkling lake. The urge to step outside is easily accomplished in three ways. In the great room, an entire wall of glass retracts completely. In the dining area, a corner disappears when two glass walls are pulled back, while full-light French doors open to the outdoors from the master bedroom.
Inside as well as outside, examples of the Lee Wetherington Difference are everywhere. Crown molding and significant architectural ceiling details match the flooring in the great room, dining room, kitchen, foyer, and master bathroom. Casement-hung impact windows and soft-close doors and drawers are used throughout. In addition, features of the Lee Wetherington Homes Platinum Series are standard within the San Mateo.
While food cooks in the convection oven or microwave, up to eight guests at the kitchen’s island can sip, others in the dining area can sit, and some may prefer to use the outdoor dining area with its own kitchen.
No comfort has been overlooked in the very private master suite. Natural light enters from the picture window and French doors in the bedroom, from windows in the separate his-and-hers closets, and from other windows in the shower. A built-in breakfast bar and refrigerator can make mornings easier, as can the backlit, three-way mirror outside the closets. A giant European soaking tub is the focal point in the master bath, which also boasts his-and-hers vanities and a spacious glass-enclosed shower.
The guest wing is equally private. Two roomy bedrooms with full baths provide convenience for visitors while a workstation in the hall adds a space for computers, homework or similar needs. The laundry room brings additional space, with Corian counters and lots of cabinets.
The outdoor space at the San Mateo features colonnades and unique gas lighting fixtures. The pool, by LeeSure Water Pools, provides a remarkable infinity spa and comfy sun shelf.
Models by Lee Wetherington Homes in Matera Court ranging from $682,000 to $824,700 (plus homesite). Only 14 homesites remain, so this opportunity may be brief.
