The Hammocks



Stylish luxury homes and luxury real estate, densely wooded lots, pristine nature preserves, quiet, pastoral lakes and ponds, and brilliant scenic vistas await you at The Hammocks, just 3 miles east of Interstate 75 in Sarasota. The Hammocks is a grand, secluded community of single-family luxury homes and ultra-luxury homes set on wide, generous lots. It’s a community designed with an appreciation of the Florida environment. Away from the urban clamor yet centrally located, residents at The Hammocks enjoy southwest Florida’s abundant flourishing natural wildlife, foliage, and landscapes without sacrificing any of the 21 st-century amenities that today’s homebuyer expects.


It’s one of the friendliest neighborhoods anywhere. With 3BR, 4BR, and 5BR homes designed in the modern/Mediterranean style by several of America’s most prestigious builders (John Cannon Homes, Tivoli Homes, Pruett Builders, and Coachman Homes), active families, seasonal residents, and retirees have all found satisfaction and delight at The Hammocks. Singles and “empty nesters” are likely to find what they seek as well.

Life at The Hammocks offers something for everyone. Families appreciate the toddler’s community playground and the excellent nearby schools: Tatum Ridge Elementary, McIntosh Middle School, and Sarasota High. Rothenbach Park and popular Myakka River State Park are also just a stone’s throw away.

Each home at The Hammocks has a delightful view of the community’s lakes, nature preserves, or the adjacent Laurel Oaks Country Club. A variety of floor plans are offered, but all homes include a tile roof, paver brick driveway, and 3-car or 4-car garage. Granite countertops, whirlpool baths, and abundant natural lighting are standard.

Many homes feature heated pools and outdoor gas fireplaces. While The Hammocks is situated in a forested, natural Florida landscape, it sits only 30 minutes east of downtown Sarasota, southwest Florida’s booming center of commerce and culture, home of the Ringling Museum of Art and Historic Asolo Theatre.

Laurel Oaks Country Club borders The Hammocks, but golfers are also 30 minutes or less from several prestigious and legendary country clubs and golf courses including The Concession, The Legacy, and TPC Prestancia. The Hammocks is 30 to 45 minutes from Sarasota’s beautiful barrier islands and 35 miles of sparkling beaches along the Gulf of Mexico; these include world-famous Siesta Beach on Siesta Key, rated in the top ten beaches of the United States multiple years. Dozens of nearby parks and nature preserves, along with a delightful climate and an average annual temperature of 73 degrees, complete the idyllic Florida scene you’ll discover at The Hammocks. Smart homebuyers will take a closer look at this impressive community that may be the Sarasota area’s best-kept secret.
