Most of the Bayshore Gardens district is occupied by Wild Oak Bay in Bradenton, a nice collection of condominiums and villas completely surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. Wild Oak Bay is a residential subdivision onto itself; it extends from El Conquistador Parkway all the way south to the Sarasota Bay waterfront, and it is separated into seven sections of low-rise condominiums or garden villas.
Even though Wild Oak Bay is not a gated community, it definitely feels like one because of the privacy and seclusion provided by the mature vegetation and greenbelt pockets of nature, which have been meticulously landscaped since development started in the 1970s. Many of the streets are shaded by fully canopied trees, and some of the villas are nestled within wooded areas. Adding to the secluded ambiance of Wild Oak Bay is the fact that there is barely any through-traffic because the roads lead to the Sarasota Bay.
Two of the condominium sections in this subdivision are for senior citizens: Vista 1 and Vista 2. The penthouse units in Vista 1 feature three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and more than 2,200 square feet of living space. Residents of these sections are allowed to keep pets, and they also enjoy amenities such as a heated swimming pool, a spa, and outdoor grilling areas that are ideal for entertaining guests.
The rest of the Wild Oak Bay residential sections also offer swimming pools to residents and their guests. Waterfront villas with views of the Sarasota Bay and Longboat Key are the most desirable because of their attractive Mediterranean architecture style and additional backyard space; in fact, a few of these villas boast their own private swimming pool. Even units that are not located in front of the Sarasota Bay will overlook nature preserves or ponds with fountains.
In late 2021, pricing at Wild Oak Bay started around $300K for condo units. Some of the most lavishly appointed villas are listed for $500K. The convenient location of this community puts residents just a few minutes away from the Bayshore Gardens shopping center, which includes a few other stores such as Save-a-Lot and Acapulco Tropical Market. If you drive north on El Conquistador Parkway, you will reach Cortez Road West, which will take you straight to Bradenton Beach in less than 15 minutes.
