Check Out This Housing Hotspot in Parrish


SARASOTA, FLORIDA, April 19th, 2017 – Golf Course Road, host to new and thriving neighborhoods in Parrish like Twin Rivers and Gamble Creek Estates, is poised to add another exciting community on its stretch running less than four miles eastward from Fort Hamer Road to Rye Road.

Neal Communities, in end March, announced that it will begin development this year of the acreage of the Palmetto Pines Golf Course at 14355 Golf Course Road into a gated community of 610 homes. The initial phase of the project involves 240 homes for which nine of the 27 holes of the golf course will be closed.

Opening Set in 2018

The rest of the course, popular as an inexpensive choice amongst local golfers, will be shut down as the development of this yet unnamed community proceeds further. The new community is slated for a late 2018 opening. Its planned amenities include a clubhouse, swimming pool, and dog park.

Already, Neal has sought the dissolution and termination of the Palmetto Pines Community Development District (CDD). This developer will fund the development’s infrastructure in lieu of having it financed through a CDD, as this private funding allows the community to be gated. Neighborhoods with CDD-funded infrastructures must be open to the public.

Brisk Sales at River’s Reach

A short distance south of the Palmetto Pines, Neal has established a strong presence in River’s Reach, a gated community which has been experiencing brisk sales in recent months. Besides new construction, resale homes are also available in this property that provides tranquil nature preserves and picturesque views of the Manatee River.

Neal offers new builds here with floor plans of between 1,616 and 3,180 square feet designed with three to four bedrooms. Prices for Neal’s new River’s Reach homes start from the mid-$200s and top at the $400s. Amenities in this community include a community pool and spa, children’s playground, picnic areas, volleyball courts, and a kayak/canoe launch.

Pace as Strong Twin Rivers

Sales are as robust and the home offerings as attractive and diverse at Twin Rivers just east of Palmetto Pines. Current listings at Twin Rivers include a 2014 build by Medallion Homes which was put on the market this April with a tag price in the mid-$400s.

This residence is designed with four bedrooms and three baths within its floor area of 2,470 square feet. Superb neighborhood features further sharpen its appeal for buyers extending their search beyond Bradenton and Sarasota homes for sale. At Twin Rivers, the residences nestle amidst approximately 1,800 acres of oak hammocks, farmland, pastures and wetlands.

Most of this acreage was either left undisturbed or designated as open areas and sites for recreational facilities. These amenities include playgrounds, a basketball court, a soccer field, a beach volleyball court, and a picnic pavilion. In addition, this community provides hiking trails, boardwalks, and a private boat ramp with direct access to the Manatee River.

In addition to their endearing community features, Twin Rivers and its neighboring communities are drawing generous market attention nowadays because of the upcoming completion of the nearby Fort Hamer Bridge. Expected to be completed this August, this span will open a convenient route from Parrish southward to Lakewood Ranch and the exciting venues for life and leisure activities in and around this master development.
