As real estate development continues to expand in Manatee County, prospective home buyers are paying close attention to construction taking place east of Bradenton. In 2018, cable television network Animal Planet featured a Parrish home as part of its “Insane Pools” reality television series, and viewers got to see some of the upscale homes under construction in this Old Florida town.
Southern Oaks in Parrish was first envisioned in 2012 as Neal Communities project featuring more than 70 acres; construction started off slowly because of issues related to environmental impact assessments and drainage, but the pace has picked up in recent years with the incorporation of renowned home builder D.R. Horton. Located north of the Rye Preserve along Rye Road, Southern Oaks is about 17 miles east of Downtown Bradenton. By virtue of being situated to the north of the Manatee River, this low-density neighborhood is perfect for home buyers in search of a safe and quiet spot to raise a family.
D.R. Horton has selected 12 floor plans for construction at Southern Oaks, and they are very spacious. The starter three-bedroom model, the Aria, features two bathrooms and a two-car garage built on 1,627 square feet of interior; in October 2019, this floor plan was listed just under $272K, a very reasonable price for a brand-new property in Parrish. Large families may be more interested in the Hemingway, a two-story model with five bedrooms and two bathrooms with an architectural style reminiscent of Key West homes; this pre-construction opportunity can be negotiated for less than $350K in 2019, but prospective buyers should keep in mind that real estate values have been appreciating quickly across Parrish. These are new homes built by a respected home builder known to include extras such as high-end appliances, engineered stone counters, custom cabinetry, decorative foyers, covered lanais, and more.
Planned amenities for this neighborhood include a playground, pavilion, dog park, and a picnic area located close to a wetlands preserve. Driving to the Shops at Silver Leaf, a shopping center anchored by a new Publix supermarket, takes just 10 minutes. Nearby family attractions include Woody’s River Roo Grill and the Ellenton Premium Outlets. Driving to Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island takes less than an hour, perfect for weekend trips.
