If you’re looking for a home that’s conveniently located near a wealth of recreational opportunities, shopping, restaurants and excellent public schools—one that offers a wide variety of residences in many price points, everything from apartment living to country club estates—you will want to consider Sarasota County’s largest master-planned community, Palmer Ranch.

Nationally recognized for its commitment to environmental excellence, Palmer Ranch is a thriving multi-generational community of neighborhoods both long established and brand new. It’s an active community with lots to do; you can meet many of its 20,000-plus residents bicycling the Legacy Trail or taking a Zumba class at the popular branch of Our Y, or perhaps picnicking at Potter Park. It’s a birder’s delight. And don’t be surprised to see families of sandhill cranes grazing in the nature preserves.

Take a look at what else Palmer Ranch has to offer.
