Village Oaks in Sarasota is one of those hidden neighborhoods that manage to stay well under the radar. Located in the Glen Oaks district, right between the Bobby Jones Golf Club and Fruitville Park, Village Oaks is a secluded condominium community where the units are attached villas that offer all the independence and privacy of single-family residences.
Development of Village Oaks dates back to the 1980s; it was completed at a time when builders played with the idea of taking golf villas out of country clubs. The result is a very pleasant neighborhood with mature trees, manicured landscaping, open floor plans, and design elements that evoke a rustic atmosphere.
Floor plans in this neighborhood range between 1,040 and 1,450 square feet. The villas are paired but do not share entryways; they are kept private by garages or fences. The coziest villas feature two bedrooms and two bathrooms; some homeowners have added a third bedroom to boost property values. Pricing starts around $175K, but the units located closer to the lake typically sell for thousands more, and they are usually in very high demand.
Community amenities at Village Oaks include a heated swimming pool, a small park, tennis court, shuffleboard court, and walking paths. Quite a few of the residents are young families and single professionals who rent on an annual basis.
Village Oaks listings tend to close very fast, and this can be explained by its prime location. The commercial district in nearby Fruitville Road includes the Sarasota Crossings shopping center, which is anchored by a Publix supermarket, Office Depot, Target, Starbucks, and more. This road connects the neighborhood with Downtown Sarasota to the west, and driving to the beaches of Siesta Key is something that can be done on a daily basis.
