Osprey is a special community in Southwest Florida that is home to Oscar Scherer State Park, Historic Spanish Point, Blackburn Point Bridge, Pine View School for the Gifted, and the Rivendell neighborhood. Rivendell borders Oscar Scherer Park on its western side and is just minutes away from the Blackburn Point Bridge that connects inland Florida with the Casey Key barrier island and some of the most pristine beaches in the world.
Rivendell is on the south end of the Palmer Ranch master residential development that is located in Sarasota. The neighborhood is spread throughout 400 acres of nature preserves, single-family residences, maintenance-free communities, lakes, parks, playgrounds, and more. The two main communities are The Cottages and The Woodlands.
Home shoppers who prefer a relaxed and affordable lifestyle tend to look at The Cottages as a sensible option. The maintenance-free properties feature a New England style of residential design, complete with sidewalks connecting the properties to encourage interaction between neighbors. There are different floor plans to choose from, starting at $176,000 for a two-bedroom and two-bathroom home built on 1,306 square feet. Residents of The Cottages enjoy their own swimming pool and clubhouse.
Single-family homes at The Woodlands feature a design that is a mix of the Spanish and Mediterranean revival styles. Prices vary according to the various floor plans, but they are reasonably priced. At the higher end, a five-bedroom and four-bathroom spaciously built on 4,200 square feet is usually priced around $579,900. Neighbors living in The Woodlands also have their own community swimming pool and clubhouse.
The nearby Pine View School for the Gifted is a major draw for families who move to Rivendell. Other public schools include Laurel Nokomis Elementary, Laurel Nokomis Middle and Venice Senior High. Osprey might be a small suburban center, but it contains a lot of Florida history and nature. Rivendell residents never have to travel far for shopping, dining or entertainment.
