I took the description of Village Walk directly from their website:
"VillageWalk of Sarasota is a private community with 1,177 residences situated on 516 lushly landscaped acres. The community consists of two types of luxury single family homes, patio homes and two types of town homes, all maintenance free. There are miles of walking paths along scenic lakes and bridges.
VillageWalk of Sarasota's grand lakefront Town Center provides convenient amenities including multi-purpose meeting rooms, a complete state-of-the-art fitness center, six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts, heated lap pool and an enormous tropical lagoon pool for your active lifestyle.
In addition, there is a gas station, Café, hair salon, gift shop and post office exclusively for VillageWalk residents and our in-house office staff providing quality service.
Active VillageWalk of Sarasota residents enjoy well over 30 different social activities and active groups to choose from.
VillageWalk of Sarasota is a gated community but welcomes visitors accompanied by their licensed real estate agent."
My comments: As with all carefully planned Palmer Ranch neighborhoods, lakes, preserves, mature vegetation and wildlife abound, and it is a short drive east to I-75 or west to Siesta Key and its beautiful white sugar-sand beaches. It is also convenient to dozens of restaurants, including some of Sarasota's most critically acclaimed local eateries. What's more, the 10.8 mile paved Legacy Trail begins in Palmer Ranch and runs all the way to Venice, for bikers, skaters, walkers and joggers to enjoy Sarasota's year-round active outdoor season. The Potter Park YMCA in Palmer Ranch, has extensive indoor and outdoor fitness facilities and features the world class Selby Aquatic Center, home to the Youth and Masters National Champion Sharks Swim Teams. There's a Tennis Club right here in the neighborhood, along with two Golf Courses (not to mention ten more within 20 minutes) and if there's not enough shopping for you nearby, eight minutes north of Clark Road on I-75 will take you to the exit for the new University Town Center Mall, which you can enjoy just as quickly as most residents of Lakewood Ranch.
I can think of so many good reasons to live in Palmer Ranch, but for the life of me, I can't think of a single reason not to!
