Despite the expansion of gated communities and planned neighborhoods across Manatee County, many home buyers still prefer the more traditional arrangement of suburbs that have grown more organically and without restrictions; this is what is known as established neighborhoods with character, and Woodlawn Lakes in Palmetto fits this description. Woodlawn Lakes is located near the boundary with Parrish, and it offers spacious lots in a place where Old Florida charm can still be felt.
Woodlawn Lakes is a small subdivision that sits on the west side of Erie Road, north of Highway 301 and east of I-75. Although this community is managed by a homeowner’s association, there are virtually no deed restrictions. The homes in this neighborhood are mostly Florida ranches built in the 1980s, but owners are known to keep their properties in great condition. Maintenance of the mature tropical landscaping and a couple of green spaces is covered by the low HOA fee.
To get an idea of the prices you can expect in Woodlawn Lakes, a three-bedroom Florida ranch with two bathrooms and 1,394 square feet of interior sold for $223K in late 2019; this is the kind of home with a long driveway, a front garden with trees, and a large fenced backyard. This is a family-friendly neighborhood where children can play safely in the greenbelt areas where neighborhood get-together events are often held. There is not a lot of traffic passing through this neighborhood.
Woodlawn Lake is conveniently located near the Parkwood Square shopping center, where you can find a large Publix supermarket, but there is also the Ellenton Premium Outlets just down the road for serious shopping. Family attractions include Buffalo Creek Park and the Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex. When you plan weekend trips to the beach, you can choose between St. Petersburg and Anna Maria Island, the latter being closer and nicer.
