Parrish is a place where Sunshine State homeowners can feel truly fortunate to live in. About 5,000 residents enjoy the quiet Old Florida lifestyle provided by the various neighborhoods of Parrish. This is a community that dates back to the mid 19th century, but modern real estate development started in earnest in the 1980s.
For many decades, Parrish has served as a quiet residential community for Floridians who want to keep a certain distance from the bustling development of Bradenton and Sarasota. The Old Florida lifestyle in Parrish is well-represented by its residential architecture. House hunters who like a bit of history to go along with their real estate acquisitions will find well-kept Southern Plantation homes and Florida ranch-style houses built on spacious lots. Since the 1980s, however, the residential architecture in Parrish has shifted towards Mediterranean revival and Key West-style homes.
Quality of life is extremely important for residents of Parrish. To this effect, prestigious home builders such as Medallion Home have been developing new communities that showcase the tranquil nature and Old Florida charm of this town. At the Gamble Creek Estates and Preserve, for example, the elegant single-family residences have been developed inside a forest patch of mature, thick-canopied trees where dozens of bird species enjoy nesting. River Plantation offers residents an opportunity to explore the nature of Southwest Florida via the neighborhood’s own canoe launch.
Parrish is also home to many horse ranches and the Florida Railroad Museum. Young residents are served by the Manatee County Public Schools, and a number of local residents have found success with their own small businesses such as restaurants, bookstores, jewelry shops, and more. For more suburban comforts, residents only have to drive a few miles to I-75 and the City of Bradenton.
