PARRISH, Fla. – (December 5, 2022) – A new master planned community is taking root in North Manatee County. Oakfield, where families will live in harmony with Florida’s distinct, indigenous landscape, is announced today by Eisenhower Property Group.
“Our vision of Oakfield is a community that celebrates the natural features of the land with accessible open spaces, a diversity of family parks and a network of interconnected trails throughout the entire site,” said Jeffery Hills, president and CEO, Eisenhower Property Group. “Oakfield will truly reflect the natural environment that people come to Florida to enjoy.”
Oakfield is located in Parrish, which offers an idyllic backdrop for residents seeking small town charm. The area has become increasingly popular among those looking for big city amenities nearby, but without the density of larger, metropolitan suburban areas.
The central location, just east of I-75 on Moccasin Wallow Road, will connect Oakfield residents to Tampa, Sarasota and St. Petersburg, offering an easy commute to major urban employment centers and entertainment districts in the region.
Spanning more than 1,900 acres, a diverse mix of neighborhoods are planned, offering a variety of residential options. Oakfield will feature award-winning homebuilders for every type of family including single-family homes, townhomes, villas, apartments and build-to-rent neighborhoods.
Once complete, the community will include 4,000 single-family residences and 600 multifamily units with nearby neighborhood-supported retail providing convenient services.
Inspired by Florida’s history of agriculture and the distinctive beauty of the land, Oakfield stands apart with simple and harmonious ways for residents to enjoy the amenities. A central club facility, resort style pools, public art, sports courts, a collection of themed outdoor spaces, and a 40-acre recreation lake with a scenic lake house pavilion and kayak launch are interconnected by an extensive nature trail network with multi-use paths running north to south. The historical water flow of Curiosity Creek, a meandering 9-mile stream on the northern end of the property, will be preserved.
The landscape architect who will bring the community to life is St. Petersburg’s Booth Design Group, Inc. Hunter Booth and his team of certified landscape architects and LEED Accredited Professionals have more than 30 years of experience creating sustainable, long-term landscapes, and enhancing the innate beauty of the natural topography.
Development details will be released in early 2023 with homes sales slated to begin in late 2023.
