Silver Oaks is a stately section of the larger Community of Palmer Ranch with three distinctive subdivisions. Fully half of the 230 acres is given to Nature Preserves, Lakes and Ponds creating a safe haven for birds and wildlife. This is not a golf course community though Residents can find play at nearby courses as Members of TPC at Prestancia or Stoneybrook Golf & Country Club. With ingress and egress from Central Sarasota Parkway and Honore Avenue, it's easy to get in and out of this otherwise closely-held neighborhood.
The Enclave is a group of 21 maintenance-free homes along one block, Enclave Court, ending in a cul-de-sac. The Vineyards are 77 Mediterranean-style Villas, also maintenance-free, surrounding a lake on Cantabria Court and Cote du Rhone Way. The Residents enjoy amenities like a Club house, Fitness Center and heated Swimming Pool. The Estates is the largest at 179 count, devoted to custom-built luxury homes featuring area builders such as John Cannon, Todd Johnston and Bamboo Homes.

Home sizes range from 2,000sf up to 7,000sf with pricing from the $400,000s to well over $1,000,000. Architectural styles are as diverse as pricing as demonstrated by the Georgian, Colonial and French Provincial flavors! The Residents themselves are professionals or retired and tend to be mostly 50 and older.
The Legacy Trail runs along the West border of Silver Oaks crossing Central Sarasota Parkway and provides access to the county's outdoor trail for biking, walking, rollerblading and running. The YMCA at Potter Park is located just down the road to the south. As development moves forward, the face of the county continues to change... Sarasota Square Mall sees many stores move around including Costco's new presence. A new mall is in the planning stage for the southwest corner of US41 and Stickney Point near the South Bridge to Siesta Key. Sarasota Pavilion on the South East corner is running strong in its configuration as an outdoor mall with much to offer patrons.
For a Community not built around golf, Silver Oaks offers plenty of recreational activities for active-minded adults and the tranquility of its beautiful environment for those not so active!
