Welcome to Osprey
South of Sarasota and north of Venice, Osprey is beautiful. Residents and guests pass through elegant gated-entrances past a large lake, fountains, oak-lined roads and manicured landscaping. The estate-sized homes of The Oaks Bayside and Oaks Clubside are architect-designed and custom-built homes. This is a highly desirable community for full-time and seasonal residents. This is the only private, member-owned golf course community offering two championship golf courses, award-winning tennis programs, a croquet court, and an elegant and traditional club with casual and fine dining. The Oaks Club has been member-owned and member-governed for the past decade. Accordingly, management is driven by the needs and desires of the members rather than by the needs of a developer. Residents of The Oaks Club community are required to join the Club as Equity or Social members. Residences in The Oaks range from the $700’s to the millions and condominiums from the $400’s above $1 million.
Historic Spanish Pointe and Bay Preserve at Osprey are cultural and historic landmarks and neighbors to The Oaks. Both tell the story of Florida’s history. Together, they share 34 acres on Little Sarasota Bay overlooking the Jim Neville Marine Preserve. Enjoy breathtaking views and extraordinary water access for kayaking and rowing. This is the home of Florida State Champion youth rowers Sarasota Crew and they practice on these waters. A few minutes down Tamiami Trail (US 41), you will find Oscar Scherer State Park. This natural area attracts visitors from around the state for recreation and visitors from around the world for its birds.
Rivendell is a master-planned community with tree-lined streets, butterfly parks, walking trails, a koi pond and play areas. Pine View School is rated among the top 10 public schools in America and this neighborhood is close by. Homes range from the $300’s to the high $600’s.
Upscale community Southbay Yacht & Racquet Club is a unique waterfront community of 360 homes with deep-water marina, lighted tennis courts, clubhouse, heated pool and spa, waterfront park, and miles of paths for walking, jogging or biking. Boaters take note! There are no bridges to Sarasota Bay and you are just a few minutes from the Venice Jetty and Gulf of Mexico. Homes prices range from the $300’s to $1.6 million.
Boaters are drawn to Sorrento Shores, a community of canals leading to the Intracoastal waterway and Little Sarasota Bay with no fixed bridges to the Gulf. Sorrento Shores includes 235 single-family homes of varying size and architectural style. Many of the canal homes with docks are in the northern part of Sorrento Shores, which has an Osprey address. The southern Sorrento Shores homes are not on the water and are actually in Nokomis. Best of all is the location, which places you minutes away from Gulf beaches, State parks, culture, golf, shopping, and restaurants.
