Pine Ranch provides urban and country conveniences in one package!
Pine Ranch in Osprey, sandwiched between the cities of Venice and Sarasota, is close to several perks including some of the best outdoor entertainment venues and schools that southwest Florida has to offer! These homes range in shape and size and are in the school district that includes schools such as Laurel Nokomis Elementary, Laurel Nokomis Middle, and Venice Senior High School. Also nearby is the highly acclaimed Pine View School that offers one of the best college-preparatory programs in the Sarasota/Venice area.
With its great location in Osprey, Sarasota is only a short drive away as is Venice. Both offer different sources of activities, shopping, and dining options. Downtown Sarasota is a great place to visit when you are craving an escape to the city. There, you can take in a great show at venues like the Asolo Theatre or the Florida Studio Theatre, or eat at of the great restaurants there such as the always original Mattison’s City Grille.
If you are looking to enjoy outdoor entertainment right near home, then Oscar Scherer Park is one of the best places to do so. There is so much to do at Oscar Scherer Park! Take a hike through over fifteen miles of scrubby flatwoods that used to cover much of present-day Sarasota and search for the lovely scrub jay, a bird currently listed as a threatened species. There are many other birds and animals to observe at the park. The park is also an excellent place to launch a canoe, fish, camp, picnic, barbeque, or swim—permitted in Lake Osprey. Motorized boats are not allowed in the black water streams.
Avid cyclists will also adore Pine Ranch in Osprey because it is only minutes from the renowned Legacy Trail that stretches for approximately ten miles from the Palmer Ranch area of Sarasota to Venice. This is the perfect place for cyclists to challenge themselves and still enjoy the breathtaking native Floridian wildlife.
