Alachua County public schools are right down the street. Celebration Pointe — a signature Gainesville-area shopping, entertainment and dining enclave, is only minutes east of Oakmont.

Pluses galore to explore

Maturity is one of the biggest benefits of building a new custom Florida home at Oakmont. The community has been open for several years and already has completed neighborhoods and phases. Many of your future new neighbors already are in residence.

The amazing community amenities also are fully available. Oakmont’s Residents Club features stunning social and meeting spaces, two resort-style swimming pools, a fitness center, event lawn, a playground, and basketball and tennis courts.

It’s all gorgeous and fully operational. Which means you can enjoy all of it the moment you move in rather than stare at a concrete hole in the ground and wait on those resort-style pools.

Oakmont also boasts an amenity that’s totally unique to the community. The Gopher Tortoise Reserve is a 46-acre slice of Oakmont terrain that protects its namesake — gopher tortoises — a species native to the southeastern U.S. The pedestrian-only Reserve features a two-mile trail through mid-Florida forests and grasslands.

And, lest anyone need more amenity options, an onsite lifestyle director oversees a busy calendar of seasonal festivals, family movie nights, and much more for community enjoyment.
