Sawgrass: Golf, Tennis, Clubhouse, Pool, Fitness Center


Have you seen the new, state-of-the-art hospital near the corner of Laurel Road and Pinebrook in Venice? It’s just a stone’s throw from the I-75 exit ramp, and just about 4 miles away is beautifully maintained gated community of Sawgrass. These homes, built by J & J Builders, Taylor Woodrow, and Waterford Builders in the late 1990s and early 2000s sit on beautifully landscaped lots, many with golf course, lake or preserve views and caged-in sparkling pools. Neal Communities has also built homes in the past 5 years in Sawgrass.

Here’s the skinny on what you’ll find at Sawgrass:

  • Low HOA fees of around $1,500 per year which covers maintenance of the common areas, community pool and recreational facilities and the gate security service.
