Why Silver Oak on Palmer Ranch is a Great Choice for the Sarasota Lifestyle

I believe that Silver Oak on Palmer Ranch really provides a very unique buying and lifestyle opportunity for those moving into the area or the seasoned Sarasotan. What makes Silver Oak stand out is that it has broad appeal to consumers as perhaps the only option for newer construction estate sized homes that are located close to the Gulf beaches and not east of Interstate 75.  Indeed, it is hard to find a newer gated subdivision anywhere close to the beaches and the center of Sarasota and Silver Oak certainly makes it convenient to enjoy a larger, newer home without sacrificing location.

With an assortment of homes built by John Cannon, Todd Johnston, Bamboo, Gibraltar, and Special Edition Custom Homes, Silver Oak has wonderful home options starting the from high $400’s to over $1,200,000.  Homes vary in time of construction from 1999 to 2007 and most feature homes built to the most stringent of standards.  Residents of Silver Oak enjoy very low homeowner’s association fees of only $2100 per year which includes a 24 hour a day manned gate with no other major memberships required.

Living in Palmer Ranch has many perks. I have had clients who almost never leave the Ranch once the settle into their new home. Palmer Ranch features:

– Close proximity to the award winning Legacy Trail which is a paved rail road track that takes riders from south Sarasota all the way to the water in Venice. Mostly flat and surrounded by gorgeous scenery, this trail also meanders through Oscar Scherer state park.

– Easy access to all of life’s needs.  There are three Publix supermarkets within a very close distance to Palmer Ranch, a newly renovated Westfield Mall with an attached Costco and movie theatre, local doctor’s offices, and course Lowe’s home improvement store all your home and garden needs.

– The Palmer Ranch YMCA features not only a nationally acclaimed master’s swimming program and children’s water park, but a great place to meet and rub shoulders with other residents in the top-of-the-line workout facility.

– Close access to golf and the Gulf. Residents can join TPC Prestancia or play other nearby public courses.  Serendipity tennis club is wonderful with one of the area’s biggest tennis facilities.  #1 rated Siesta Key beach is only about 10 minutes or five miles away by car.


It’s true, living in Silver Oak is second to none.  I have many listings in this neighborhood, but one I would like to feature is 8939 Bloomfield Boulevard.  Located on an interior premium lot and impeccably maintained, this home is offer at $749,900 a very good relative value considering other recent comparables.  The home features immaculate curb appeal with meticulous grounds, a gourmet kitchen for even the most discriminating chef, and with nearly 3,300 square feet there is room for nearly any lifestyle.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # A3990467 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.
