Lee Wetherington Breaks Ground in Premier Master Planned Community

At Lee Wetherington Homes, we’ve long been committed to building homes and developing neighborhoods in the most esteemed master planned communities and country clubs.

True to that mission, we have recently broken ground in one of the Sarasota/Manatee-area’s most luxurious golf and country club communities — River Wilderness.

This latest expansion into River Wilderness further solidifies Lee Wetherington’s position as one of the leading luxury homebuilders in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

The River Wilderness Entry.
Now that the Fort Hamer Bridge has opened, you can drive over the Manatee River to Lakewood Ranch for quick access to the shopping, dining, and entertainment available on Main Street at Lakewood Ranch. The bridge also brings you closer to the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center and the Mall at University Town Center, as well as the theatres, symphonies, and ballets of nearby Sarasota.

It won’t be long before the community’s sales center is open and construction begins on the models. But there’s no need to wait until then to learn more. Contact us today for more information on Cypress Glen at River Wilderness.
