The Plantation Overview

The Plantation by Pulte Homes is a master-planned community in Fort Myers, Florida consisting of two neighborhoods. Construction started in 2006 and upon completion this gated community will have 2,200 homes including attached villas, carriage homes, and single-family homes.

While The Plantation is open to residents of all ages, active adults especially enjoy the lifestyle and amenities. Residents of The Plantation enjoy two clubhouses, access to an 18-hole golf course and club, and many floor plans with single-level living.

The Plantation Amenities

The Plantation offers three amenity centers within the community. Bridgetown Hall is the heart of the Bridgetown subdivision’s social scene. This 9,000 square-foot clubhouse provides a fitness center complete with cardiovascular and strength training equipment. Outdoors residents can enjoy a match at one of the six tennis courts or a game of basketball. Bridgetown Hall also provides a linear pool outside for laps and jacuzzi to soak in after a workout.

The amenities continue at The Plantation with the Somerset neighborhood’s 11,670 square-foot clubhouse. Somerset Hall provides six outdoor tennis courts and a pool for outdoor recreation. After working out in the fitness center, residents can relax and enjoy a massage in the massage room, spend time in the sauna, or watch TV in the lounge. The clubhouse also features locker rooms, a tennis pro shop, billiards, and a library.

In addition to the neighborhood amenity centers, The Plantation’s 18-hole golf course provides a 38,000 square-foot clubhouse. With a social or golf membership, The Plantation Golf Course members have access to a fully serviced pro golf shop staffed by PGA professionals in the Great House. This impressive clubhouse delivers a relaxing atmosphere with a terrace that overlooks Sunset Lagoon. Residents of The Plantation can gather here with friends and family to enjoy a game of billiards or host parties in the Great House’s main dining room.

The Plantation Homes & Real Estate

Pulte Homes began construction of The Plantation in 2006 and this master-planned community offers new and resale homes with over 30 floor plans. The Plantation has two separate communities, Somerset and Bridgetown. Both neighborhoods offer carriage homes, attached villas, and single-family homes.

Carriage homes are attached homes that have four to six units per building. These units are first- or second-floor residences that range from 1,654 to 2,743 square feet with two to four bedrooms. Carriage homes at The Plantation include an attached two-car garage with every unit.

I still work a few days a week in Ft. Myers so the location is nice for my community. Plus, we wanted a community with nice amenities like the fitness center and pools but didn't really want to be in one of those 55 and older neighborhoods. We like the mix of younger people here, the location, the amenities and the homes.
