Our community is located in Sarasota, Florida on Cattleman Road, about one-half mile south of Bee Ridge Road near exit 207 of Interstate 75. Our cozy neighborhood has only two streets: Citation Lane and Whirlaway Drive.
The numbers speak for themselves; 64 residences covering 11 acres and ranging from 2 to 3 bedrooms, 2 to 2.5 baths, and featuring 1 and 2-car attached garages. But the numbers don’t begin to tell the story.
The original builders of Calumet wanted to pay homage to the graceful and distinctive Calumet Farm, home to Triple Crown Champions, in the bluegrass region from which they came. The community they set out to develop would be a “thoroughbred.” And so, they surrounded a tranquil pond with homes that displayed more design character than was typical, with expansive windows and vaulted ceilings that take advantage of the abundant sunlight in our area, and with an attention to detail that stood in stark contrast to the many “cookie-cutter” developments dotting too much of Florida’s Suncoast.
One recently arrived Calumet homeowner put it this way: “Much of what we had seen during our house-hunt was living space with all the charm of an extended-stay chain motel. But from the moment we pulled onto the gently winding roads, under a canopy of beautiful live oaks, and saw the inviting design of homes that took some thought to develop, and we knew we had found the difference between commodity and community.”
