Rotonda West and Seven Neighborhoods
Located between those spokes are the seven sub-communities, golf courses, lakes, and canals. The southwest area of the “wheel “is a big nature preserve, inhabited by alligators, bald eagles, and a wide variety of other “Florida Natives. ”
The homes are located along the spokes (streets) of the “wheel.” The names of the communities are Oakland Hills, Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Broadmoor, Long Meadow, Long Marsh, and Pine Valley. Outside of the wheel are the communities of Rotonda Lakes, Rotonda Heights, and Rotonda Sands.
Every section has a distinct character. Oakland Hills is the oldest section and the only section with underground utilities. Some areas have very lush landscaping, almost like a jungle, while others are more open. However, none of the neighborhoods are gated, but the neighborhood watch is doing a fantastic job to keep the community safe.
The Pine Valley Subdivision was the last “piece of the pie” to be developed. The homes are newer and larger. Pine Valley is in close proximity to thousands of acres of preserves with an abundance of natural wildlife.
