The Club at The Strand is set amidst rolling fairways, natural preserves and lakes and overlooks various home styles. Here, every homeowner enjoys the rewards of a Social Membership.
This grand, three-story Clubhouse features stone balustrades, arched doors and windows, soaring ceilings and open terraces with views of gardens and the Grand Staircase that leads to the Botanical Gardens.
The interiors are a compelling vision of the Old South reminiscent of Charleston, South Carolina or Savannah, Georgia. The rich mahogany and cherry woods are enhanced with a subtle color palette of complementing fabrics, prints and textures in the many intimate sitting areas found throughout The Club, while furnishings, artwork and accessories appear to have been acquired by a studied collector. Oil paintings depict Florida of yesteryear. Expansive windows feature Plantation shutters or elegant silk draperies with trimmings from Houles in Paris. The 55,000 square foot Clubhouse is the perfect place to enjoy brunch, lunch or dinner with family and friends or simply sit on the Veranda and enjoy the beautiful Botanical Gardens.
The Grille Room offers an elegant, candlelit dining experience with sparkling chandeliers, white linen tablecloths and adjoining mahogany bar and buffet. If you prefer dining al fresco, step onto the Veranda, overlooking the Botanical Gardens, for a romantic evening.
