An interesting socioeconomic trend unfolding across the United States can be currently observed in Manatee County, particularly in places such as Ellenton. Nearly 10 years ago, families were moving away from suburban neighborhoods and into smaller properties located in urban centers; now that the economy has recovered, many home buyers are looking for larger properties in communities such as Oakleaf Hammock in Ellenton.
Developed by CalAtlantic Homes, Oakleaf Hammock is located on the eastern side of I-75 and south of 69th Street, not far from the Ellenton Premium Outlets. Most of the homes in this neighborhood have been completed over the last two years, and they are larger than the average single-family residences in Manatee County.
The properties at Oakleaf Hammock are part of the ongoing trend of larger families living under the same roof. Home buyers who take care of elderly relatives are showing interest in these properties because they need spacious floor plans that can provide privacy for all household members; moreover, they need durable construction under warranty in a neighborhood that provides family amenities.
A four-bedroom home with three bathrooms and more than 2,600 square feet of interior space can be negotiated under $350K at Oakleaf Hammock. A three-bedroom home with den space that can be converted into an additional bedroom was listed for just $300K in November 2017; this should be of special interest to property investors.
The home sites are also larger and adorned with tropical landscaping; many of the properties are arranged around a large lake at the center of the neighborhood. The amenities include a picnic area with a large pavilion, basketball court, athletic fields, nature areas, and a playground.
Ellenton and its surrounding communities are attracting more than just residential developers; as of late 2017, two new commercial districts were undergoing construction east of I-75. Driving to Downtown Bradenton from Oakleaf Hammock takes less than 15 minutes; Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island are close enough for day trips and weekend visits.
