The secluded and charming neighborhood of Woodland Park is located in the Pinecraft district of Sarasota, just north of Bahia Vista Street and east of South Beneva Road. Formally known as The Oaks at Woodland Park, this community is about the size of a subdivision, but only 77 single-family residences were developed here between 1985 and 2003, mostly by local custom builders.
Numerous lakes and nature preserves give Woodland Park homeowners considerable privacy in a location that is just 10 minutes away from Downtown Sarasota and about 20 minutes from the beaches at Siesta Key. This is a neighborhood where architectural diversity has always been welcomed; the earlier models are Florida ranches with nice touches such as skylights, natural stone counters, and cathedral ceilings. The more recent models are Mediterranean revival homes, and you can also find some larger estates built in the Tudor style.
Pricing at Woodland Park is just as attractive as the real estate. You can find three-bedroom homes with two full bathrooms and nearly 2,000 square feet under air conditioning listed under $300K. The most coveted properties are built on large lots overlooking the lakes or nestled within nature preserves. If you like neighborhoods where you can enjoy nature, you will love the mature canopies of Woodland Park and all the wildlife they attract. As of late 2019, the Legacy Trail is being expanded and will come close to the eastern section of the community, thus making it even more appealing for families with children.
Woodland Park residents have plenty of nearby shopping options. There’s a Publix at Sarasota Commons just north of the neighborhood; another Publix plus a Winn Dixie are a few minutes to the east at the Sarasota Crossings shopping center. Smaller Latin American markets such as Mi Sitio and La Abejita are also close by. If you are into golf, the legendary Bobby Jones Course is just north of Fruitville Road.
