Live where you play
A 55 and over golf community in beautiful Lakeland, Florida
New Home Site Information
We look forward to your interest in the new additions to the Sandpiper Community which is a 55 and older community located in Lakeland, Florida. It consists of approximately 1,200 existing homes developed in the mid to late 1980’s.
Recent renovations to the existing golf course have created the opportunity for the addition of 40 new homes and home sites on or adjacent the golf course within the existing community.
Within this website you will find a total of (10) proposed layouts which can be modified or upgraded to fit personal preferences. It is the intended for all new homes to be incorporated into the existing Property Owners Association (POA) giving all new residents access to all POA amenities including the clubhouse, pool, tennis, pickle ball, and exercise facilities.
A little extra
In addition to the amenities the Sandpiper community provides, the golf course, golf clubhouse, restaurant, and bar, while separate from the POA, are open to all residents. Any purchase of a new home site and home qualifies each new resident to 50% off a first years single or couples golf membership (golf membership is not a requirement of home ownership and golf facilities are open to non-members).
Things to know
Most home site dimensions are roughly 85’ x 65’ with a 5 foot side setback, a 20 foot front setback, and a 15 foot rear setback – the maximum would be 50’ x 50’ home size, however, we have held most overall home dimensions short of these maximums to provide greater space between homes. Rear screened porches and pools (without a hard roof structure) are allowable to 5 foot rear lot line upon POA approval.
1. Once you select a lot by number you will be notified where you are on the waiting list in terms of others who may have selected the same lot prior to you. It is recommended you select 3 lots and you will be notified of your position for each, but you can only be first in line for one lot. If you are not first on the list for a particular lot, you may stay on the list for that lot and select others as your next choice. If someone decides to not proceed on a particular lot you move up the priority list accordingly. There is also a section for comments and input on home layout, number of bedrooms desired, finishes, etc. In the event your first lot preference is not available when your inquiry is submitted, you will be listed as 1st in line for 2nd or 3rd. Should a more preferred lot become available, you would be given first right of refusal for that lot.
