Natural beauty at the Oaks Preserve.

For years, The Oaks in Osprey has been the proud standard for gracious living on the west coast of Florida. And now, The Oaks is offering a new lifestyle, one that is luxurious, yet carefree and surprisingly affordable. Its name? The Oaks Preserve.

Set west of the Tamiami Trail along North Creek and Little Sarasota Bay, the Oaks Preserve blends natural beauty and stunning architecture. The neighborhood occupies 100 acres inside this exclusive country club community of more than 1,000 acres. It is a green and quiet oasis behind gates, with shady roads weaving in and out of pristine nature preserves that can never be touched by man.

Steeplechase Communities, the exclusive builder in this remarkable community, has a long-established reputation for quality craftsmanship and fine attention to detail. Steeplechase will build only 38 homes in the Oaks Preserve, most of them overlooking the lake or North Creek. These single-family detached residences will be maintenance-free.

To provide an individual spirit and ease in customizing, Steeplechase has created eight innovative designs in the latest Florida style. Each home will have the standard design details that sets Steeplechase apart: volume ceilings, oversized crown moldings, pickled oak cabinets, Corian kitchen counters and eight-foot, raised panel doors.

The models, fully decorated by Kanes of Sarasota, are now open. Each one has a personality all its own. Be sure to explore the breathtaking Cambridge model, designed around a courtyard and pool and offering a private guest suite; or tour the Essex, with its beautiful millwork and open spaces, perfect for entertaining and enjoying the Florida lifestyle.

Oaks Preserve owners have 24-hour guard-gated and patrolled security, and their own private recreational pavilion with pool, spa, exotic gardens and scenic lake. They are also entitled to either a social or golf membership in the Oaks Club, which includes golf, tennis, croquet and gourmet dining in an impressive 27,000-square-foot Georgian clubhouse setting.

While Oaks properties have typically ranged from $400,000 to $2.7 million, the fine residences inside the Oaks Preserve will be offered at $249,000 to $389,000 -- a savvy investment for today's sophisticated buyer.
