Sherwood Forest is a heavily wooded deed-restricted community with 155 homes located off McIntosh Road and Bahia Vista Street. Just like the name implies, there are street names like Friar Tuck, Little John, Maid Marian and of course, lets not forget Robin Hood. As the story goes, in the forest there is a covered bridge over Phillippi Creek and the entire location has huge sprawling oak trees with Spanish moss hanging from the limbs. A unique feature is that many of the streets will split around an old oaks in the road. Preservation of the oak trees has been key to helping Sherwood Forest maintain it’s woodsy feel.
There are two lakes within the subdivision and backing to one of them is a premium.
Construction began in 1980 and with the exception of a few undeveloped lots, 1989 saw the end of construction. Home sizes are from 1,700 to over 3,000 square feet. All homes will have at least a two-car garage and many have pools. The general architecture was innovative for the time featuring eleven and twelve foot ceilings, sky-lights, large open kitchens and family rooms. Many of the homes have a generous proportion of the footprint dedicated to wonderful master suites with Roman showers.
Maintenance fees cover the costs of maintaining the lakes and entry ways. They also cover the private roads and electric for indirect lighting of the tree boxes which accent the roads throughout.
Sherwood Forest schools are Fruitville Elementary, McIntosh Middle, and Sarasota High School.
