Lakewood Country Club – Neighborhood Description

Lakewood Country Club Map

It is often helpful to contrast neighborhoods, as comparisons provide context. Lakewood Country Club, in comparison to the rest of Lakewood? ….. Well, there IS no comparison. Lakewood, separate from the Country Club, is all modest tract homes built from 1948 – 1952, on modest 5,000sf lots, originally ranging in size from 888sf to 1,225. Lakewood Country Club on the other hand were all custom homes built starting in the late 1950’s, but with most built in the early 1960’s, with most homes being 1,800sf and all located on lot typically around 8,000sf, with 9,000 and 10,000sf lots sprinkled in with the occasional 20,000sf lot.

So with homes on average twice the size, on lots twice the size, there simply is not comparison. Lakewood Village is getting closer in feel with custom homes and larger lots, but the most appropriate comparison for a similar neighborhood would be Virginia Country Club. Where Lakewood Country Club and Virginia Country Club differ is in age. Both areas have the “Custom Estate” feel, but Lakewood Country Club feels newer, and well, because it is newer. This then becomes a personal preference, as it depends upon whether you, as a buyer, prefer one over the other. With the older Virginia Country Club, comes old world character and charm. With the newer Lakewood Country Club comes a more consistent surrounding area, simply because the neighborhood is newer and developed during one decade, rather than over a millennium.

Within Lakewood Country Club are the exclusive “Island” streets of Manor Drive and Parkview Drive which are surrounded by the golf course. These homes sell at a premium with lot sizes over 15,000sf, and expansive back yard with picturesque golf course views.
