House hunters who are familiar with ongoing development in the eastern section of Manatee County, have probably heard concerns from residents about the increase of residential density. If you also share this concern, you will likely be interested in Ancient Oaks in Parrish, a discreet neighborhood located south of the Buffalo Creek Golf Course, not far from Ellenton. Development in this section of Parrish is going slower, which means that it is still quiet and peaceful.
There are less than 250 single-family residences at Ancient Oaks; they sit on spacious lots and offer more luxurious extras than similar homes in nearby communities. The floor plans in this neighborhood were selected by local builders who specialize in custom home design, which means that you do not have to worry about living in a cookie-cutter community; in fact, a few models earned Parade of Homes awards. In addition to looking great, Ancient Oaks homes also boast great energy-efficient ratings to keep your monthly utility bills low.
To get an idea of the real estate opportunities at Ancient Oaks in 2019, a 2,543 square feet home with a private swimming pool, three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, three-car garage, and triple sliding doors was listed for less than $390K in June. Most homes are located adjacent to nature preserves; however, a few dozen enjoy views of lakes and ponds. The predominant architectural style is Mediterranean revival with hints of Spanish Colonial.
As previously mentioned, Ancient Oaks is located in a section of Parrish where you can still find many undeveloped parcels. The closest residential community, Harrison Ranch, is separated by large greenbelt sections that maximize privacy. Since this neighborhood does not sit along major highways, you do not have to worry about excessive traffic. Suburban comforts such as supermarkets, banks, cafes, and beauty salons are less than 10 minutes away at The Shops at Silver Leaf, but you are only three miles east of the Ellenton Premium Outlets, where you will find more than a hundred shops in one location. Driving to Holmes Beach will take you less than an hour, about the same distance to St. Petersburg Beach.
