Discover Palmer Ranch in Sarasota

A best-selling, master-planned residential community in South Sarasota

The popular and best-selling master-planned community of Palmer Ranch is located in South Sarasota. This 10,000-acre multi-generational community is bordered by Clark Road to the north, I-75 to the east, Beneva Road to the west and SR-681 to the South. The roots of modern day Palmer Ranch date back to 1910 when Chicago socialite Bertha Honore Palmer (wife of Chicago businessman Potter Palmer) originally purchased 80,000 acres on Little Sarasota Bay for her winter residence. In 1984, Tampa businessman Hugh Culverhouse then purchased 12,000 acres from the remaining land to develop the area into a master-planned residential community. Today, Palmer Ranch is home to over 23,000 residents in 30+ upscale residential neighborhoods with commercial, retail and recreational spaces all cohesively integrated into the master plan.
