Located off Winkler Road extension about 1.5 miles south of Summerlin Road in south Lee County, Banyan Bay is a small neighborhood of luxurious estate homes with an ideal setting near the beaches of the Lee Island Coast.
This gated community is comprised of just 132 single-family homes nestled in a natural, preserve-like setting. There are 3 large lakes within Banyan Bay, and the developers made extensive efforts to retain several acres of gorgeous conservation areas, creating a lush, native ambience and spectacular views from each home.
This residential enclave was created by Ryland Homes and DR Horton, 2 of the country’s leading residential development firms.
