Resort-Style Living is #ViewFromTheTopStyle

Here at The View from the Top, we specialize in luxury & penthouse living in downtown Sarasota. However, Sarasota offers so many different ways to live in luxury that occasionally we branch away from downtown to spotlight a #ViewFromTheTopStyle neighborhood that we know our luxury-lovers would be able to appreciate. (See our previous blogs on West of Trail, Beach Retreats, Deer Creek & Lakewood Ranch.) One of the reasons many of us live here in Sarasota (aka paradise) is to feel like we are on vacation every day. If you want to take that to the next level, welcome to resort-style living.

We’re talking everything right in your neighborhood, well-maintained luxury amenities such as olympic lap pools, lagoon pools for sunbathing and lounging on a float, state-of-the-art fitness centers, top-notch safety & security, and easy access to regularly-needed places like hair salons, post offices, and markets. Ladies and gentlemen, meet VillageWalk, where they have done resort-style living right.

VillageWalk in Palmer Ranch

Located south of Clark Rd. off of Honore, VillageWalk is one of the largest and best-equipped communities in Palmer Ranch. While many PR neighborhoods feature public space, pools, and small fitness rooms, few do it on the scale of VillageWalk. Here’s why:The

  • Their gym is better-equipped than many professional gyms.

  • They offer two pools, one for relaxing, one for exercise, in addition to a spa, and ample outdoor space.

  • Six professional-quality, Har-Tru tennis courts are available for use.

  • Forgot one thing for dinner? Worry not! Stop by the convenience store right within the gates when you’re in a pinch.

  • The shopping district inside VillageWalk includes a salon, gas station, post office, and office space for residents. Talk about all-in-one!

  • The beautifully-maintained community features innumerable paths for biking and jogging through the picturesque neighborhood.

  • This neighborhood is perfect for worry-free lock & go! Ultra-secure manned gated entrance 24 hours a day means this is not only a very safe place to live full-time, but you can rest easy that your home away from home is safe if you are seasonal.

  • Maintenance-free living means no more yard work for you! 😍

All the Perks of Condo Living

If you like having everything you need right in one building, but desire a bit more breathing room on the weekends or when family is in town, VillageWalk can be a great alternative! All the amenities above mean you literally just have to worry about the inside of your home—easy peasy!
