The Oaks

Offering residents a blissfully serene lifestyle along with stunning waterfront beauty.

Welcome to The Oaks

A hidden gem of pristine beaches and unparalleled luxury

Life in The Oaks is like something out of a dream, with the sugar-white beaches and lush golf courses unfurling along the azure waters of Sarasota Bay. Located just 12 miles from the bustling downtown district of Sarasota, The Oaks is Florida’s best-kept secret, hiding in plain sight and offering residents a blissfully serene lifestyle along with stunning waterfront beauty.

Nestled in Osprey, a paradise of citrus orchards, museums, and spectacular scenery, The Oaks Club is a gated community sprawling over 1,000 acres and three distinct neighborhoods, including The Oaks Clubside, The Oaks Bayside, and The Oaks Preserve. The Oak Clubside neighborhood provides a posh country club experience, with championship golf courses, tennis courts, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and the acclaimed WellFit Center, while The Oak Bayside community sits on a protected eagle sanctuary. Majestic oaks canopy the estates here, and many homes here boast marvelous views of Little Sarasota Bay. The Oak Preserve gifts residents with a peaceful estuary locale and charming villas. Club life is a lesson in elegant living, with a glittering social scene, galas, theater, afternoons playing croquet, and chef-driven restaurants.

While residents are pampered with upscale cuisine and luxury amenities, the surrounding areas offer a multitude of lovely outings and fine dining. The Marie Selby Botanical Garden is an astonishing triumph in living art, architecture, and gardening. The 19th-century buildings are impeccably restored, and the displays of flora are simply breathtaking. Florida’s magnificent topography is displayed at Oscar Scherer State Park, which features shady walking trails and kayaking. 

Just across Little Sarasota Bay, Turtle Beach awaits. It has sugar-white sand, crystal waters, and boat launches, while Siesta Key lounges to the north with upscale dining and a vibrant nightlife scene. Ophelia’s on the Bay is a divine bistro perched south of Turtle Beach and offers sweeping views of Little Sarasota Bay. This exquisite dining room dazzles guests with fresh seafood and a memorable New American menu infused with global flavors. Specialties include the escargot with warm herb butter and the Maine lobster with spiced vermouth sauce. 

Families living in The Oaks benefit from the excellent Sarasota County School District, which includes the highly rated Pine View Elementary School.
