Promenade Estates at Palmer Ranch is still taking shape

One of the newer neighborhoods in South Palmer Ranch, Promenade Estates features large single-family residences in pleasant suburbs. The good location and generous amenities enhance the active and inviting Florida lifestyle.

Launched in 2019, Promenade Estates has locations for 352 homes. Most are surrounded by dozens of retained ponds and lakes, with the largest sparkling water fountains. The rest of the dwellings belong to the Green Belts and Large Wetland Conservancy on the eastern side of the community.

Many of the homes in the Promenade Estates at Palmer Ranch are located on one of the many lakes and ponds.

A stunning guard overlooks the main divided entrance on Honor Street. The top is a bit like an airport traffic control tower. Its stone foundation is a gateway corridor. The central island leading to the gate is lined with flowering shrubs and palm trees.

Promenade Estates at Palmer Ranch has a dog park with areas designated for large and small canines to have fun.

The other entrance off Bay Street – also divided – faces the northern reaches of Oscar Scherer State Park. The entrance to the Legacy Trail is less than a mile to the west.
