Oakmont is Gainesville’s newest luxury development, bringing sophisticated resort-style living to Alachua County. Established in 2015, the vast grounds are tucked between Haile and Tioga on 550 acres, 45 of which are set aside as a permanent conservation area. Highlights include a leafy, relaxed setting, upscale amenities, and custom homes by esteemed local builders. Homes range in price from the $300k range to over a million dollars, and vary in size from single family to one-acre estates.
What’s It Like Living in Oakmont?
Oakmont is a 30 minute commute to Shands and the University of Florida, and a ten minute trip by car to shopping, dining and golf at Haile. Further east, you’re within easy driving distance of the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, the Florida Museum of Natural History, shopping along Archer Road, and the nightlife downtown. If you’re a fan of cycling and fresh fruits and vegetables sold directly by local farmers, a trip to the Haile Village farmer’s market is totally doable by bike.
Life in Oakmont revolves around the Club Room, which is anchored by a resort-style swimming pool and a fitness center. An on-site events coordinator ensures that residents get to know each other with seasonal events, annual holiday parties, and year-round activities, such as Zumba, yoga, tennis lessons, and more.
Oakmont residents and guests enjoy an array of amenities that complement an active, community-oriented lifestyle. Some of those additional amenities include:
Multi-purpose activity field and playground
Free guided exercise sessions
The clubhouse can be rented out for parties and has a kitchen and two fireplaces. So when you’re not working on your backhand, you can kick back and enjoy a good book by a cozy fire.
