Master-planned Setting

Deerfield Homes for Sale

Deerfield is a deed-restricted community set within a walled perimeter that gives you the feeling of living within a master-planned development. The main reason for this is that there is no vehicular traffic cutting across the property. The entrance and exit of the community is only through its internal street, Deering Circle, off Porter Road.

Lush canopies of trees shade the median at this community’s Deering Circle portal, thus helping create a good first impression of the homes for sale in Deerfield. The community was developed with a lake centerpiece measuring about a quarter of Deerfield’s entire acreage. Aside from its aesthetic value, the lake provides storm water mitigation within the property.

Choice home sites in Deerfield were platted around its lake centerpiece. Some of these prime lots were set along the only other internal street in the property, the cul-de-sac of Deer Lake Court. The residences on the community’s western edge are notably adjacent to a small subdivision. This neighboring community is the Otter Creek Estates, also a potent hunting ground for prospective buyers of Sarasota homes for sale.

Larger than its western neighbor, Deerfield is comprised of 93 residences built between the mid-1990s and the early 2000s. These homes bask amid a park-like setting, with the property’s lake featuring a gazebo and an observation deck to better enjoy the community’s serene environment.

The homeowners’ association fees in Deerfield have been set at reasonable rates. These dues cover lawn maintenance, cable TV, and a CCTV security monitoring system. The upkeep of the community’s lake and landscaping is likewise included in the HOA fees.
