Hidden Forest IS Hidden!

Hidden Forest IS Hidden!

Sarasota has been so very fortunate during development not to be completely stripped and deforested so the likelihood of living in a Neighborhood Community with a mature natural landscape is very good! The chances of finding a beautiful "secret gem" like Hidden Forest is excellent! Most people have no idea where it is. Mention a couple of the cross streets and they still don't recognize the area.

Hidden  Forest is truly a private enclave of less than 80 homes in the North West corner of Desoto Acres. Desoto Road is to the north and Mink Road is to the east. The subdivision was developed in the late 1970s with most of the homes constructed by 1984, the last built in 2001. Home sizes are 1,500sf to 6,000sf with values ranging from $200,000 to $800,000 and higher. Most homes are on one acre lots though several are two plus acres.

Utilizing the fertile natural landscape, most homes are built back off the street literally nestled in their private oak hammocks. The styles vary from ranches to two stories to modern designs. The Neighborhood has no sidewalks lending to the wild flora/fauna sense of existence with plenty of wildlife in abundance! One gentleman in particular enjoys the wildlife viewings he gets that his acreage has become profuse in undergrowth from the side yard back to the border, giant oaks sweeping the skies standing guard silently as Mother Nature weaves her magical spell across the landscape. The canals that run through the subdivision keep the vegetation lush, green and healthy year-round regardless of temperature.
