Parkridge Homes for Sale – Sarasota, Florida 34243

Parkridge Homes for Sale

Parkridge is a condominium complex consisting of townhouses in north Sarasota along University Parkway. This enclave is just about a quarter of a mile east of University Parkway’s intersection with Lockwood Ridge Road, another corridor pivotal to searches of Sarasota real estate for sale. As equally compelling to prospective buyers, Parkridge sits between two major highways; it is about 2 miles east of U.S. 301 and 3 miles west of Interstate 75.

Gated and private, Parkridge is a development of Centex Homes, a Dallas, Texas-based homebuilder specialized in the entry-level and move-up market of the home construction industry. Centex developed Parkridge around 2003 and built it out in sometime in 2006 (henceforth in 2009, this Dallas builder was acquired by the giant conglomerate Pulte Group).

Charming Setup

Parkridge Homes for Sale

Parkridge is a well-planned residential complex, featuring a centerpiece lake set with a tiny peninsula hosting recreational amenities for the community’s residents. In this common area is a heated, resort-style swimming pool with a spa, clubhouse cabana, men/ladies’ restrooms, and a spacious, well-furnished deck.

Fountain accents in the lake add to the scenic views from the Parkridge pool area. Quite well-maintained, the grounds of the condominium complex flaunt native Florida foliage including tropical palm trees which contribute to the charm of Parkridge condos for sale.

For Parkridge, Centex built two-story townhouses and one-story “terrace” homes. These condo units feature living areas measuring between 1,000 and 1,900 square feet. Designed with two to three bedrooms, these units are typically listed in the MLS of Sarasota condos for sale in the $100s‒$200s price range. Parkridge offers a maintenance-included residential setting that is suitable for either year-round or seasonal residents.

The units common in the upper range of this bracket are those which have been fully renovated. Premium to the valuation are also given to select units which back up to the community’s lake and afford picturesque water views. Other Parkridge condos are on lots backing up to greenbelts that serve as buffer from a mix of neighboring residential and commercial properties.

Eclectic Neighborhood

Parkridge Homes for Sale

The single family homes of the Cedar Creek community flank Parkridge to the east. Immediately west of the Parkridge condos are retail shops and restaurants that are already part of the commercial hub within the quadrants of the University Parkway‒Lockwood Ridge Road junction.

Within this commercial area are the popular Detwiler’s Farm Market, a Publix, and several homegrown restaurants as well as fast food chains. More shopping and dining choices are easily accessible too at the Mall at University Town Center at the intersection of Interstate 75 and University Parkway.

The innovative diverging diamond in this intersection, which opened in 2017, allows safe and convenient access to an even wider selection of life and leisure activities. These destinations include those in Lakewood Ranch, unlocked by arterial roads to the east. Southward, the points of interest are opened by road connectors to Sarasota and its arts and culture district plus the Gulf Coast beaches of Lido and Siesta Key.

Northward, the lifestyle destinations are as numerous and easily accessible. Among the more prominent picks are those in Bradenton including its downtown attractions and local nature parks that further enhance the quality of life for Parkridge residents.
