Silver Oaks is a stately section of Palmer Ranch with three distinctive subdivisions. Fully half of the 230 acres is given to Nature Preserves, Lakes and Ponds creating a haven for birds and wildlife. This is not a golf course community although Residents can find play at nearby courses as a Member of TPC at Prestancia or Stoneybrook Golf & Country Club.
The Enclave is a group of 21 maintenance-free homes along one block, Enclave Court, ending in a cul-de-sac. The Vineyards are 77 Mediterranean-style Villas, also maintenance-free, surrounding a lake on Cantabria Court and Cote du Rhone Way. The Residents enjoy amenities such as a Clubhouse, Fitness Center and a heated Swimming Pool. The Estates is the largest with 179 homes and is devoted to custom-built luxury homes by industry leaders such as John Cannon, Todd Johnston and Bamboo Homes.
Home sizes range from 2,000sf up to 7,000sf+ with pricing from the $400,000s to well over $1,000,000. ARchitectural Styles are diverse from Georgian and Colonial to French Provincial. The Residents are a diverse demographic professionally but generally are in their 50s and older.
The Legacy Trail runs along the West border of Silver Oaks crossing Central Sarasota Parkway and provides access to the county's outdoor trail for biking, walking, rollerblading and running activities. The YMCA at Potter Park is just down the road also.
As development moves forward, the face of the county changes... Sarasota Square Mall sees movement in its tenants including Costco joining the roster of stores in recent years. Sarasota Pavilion has anchored the southeast corner of US41 and Stickney Point for decades and will soon have a neighbor mall as plans are underway to put one in the works for the western side of the intersection.
As one of the few communities not centered around golf, Silver Oaks is hard to beat on luxury and its semi-secluded location at this value!
