Home Of The Week
Inspired Architecture. Exceptional Builders. Oakland Park.
Oakland Park is Winter Garden’s idyllic new home community. It is a beautiful Green Certified development, located in close proximity to Winter Garden, featuring some of the area’s most stunning architecture. It’s Florida living the way it should be.
At Oakland Park, every house is inspired by old-Florida charm, equipped with new home luxuries, and built by one of six builder partners—David Weekley Homes, Ashton Woods, J & J Building, Dream Finders Homes, Vintage Estate Homes, and RCB Homes. These builders follow specific guidelines that not only make for remarkable homes but also ensure the natural beauty and integrity of Oakland Park will endure for generations.
The homes within this scenic neighborhood are expertly built to fit five primary architectural styles. This variety of unique home designs give future residents the opportunity to find the perfect home to match their personal style.
Colonial Revival: One of the most predominant styles in the area. The strong presence of the Colonial Revival home is defined by the home’s main body symmetrical facade, a well-detailed entry portico or full-facade porch, and side wings that buttress the main body of the home.
Florida Vernacular: This unique style is an adaptation of the National style known for its practical details and construction. It’s best suited for warm sub-tropical climate, with its broad overhangs and deep porches allowing for shade and slight breezes.
Folk Victorian: In Central Florida, the Folk Victorian style is a refinement of the Florida Vernacular style. This style utilizes the same massing and forms as Florida Vernacular with additional detail or ornamentation.
Craftsman: This style’s finish framing, unique massing, and colorful palette provide the community with diversity and character. Generally, the Craftsman home will be a foursquare home where the main body, width, and depth are no more than 32 feet—while other versions include a bungalow with a full facade front porch.
Spanish Colonial: Central Florida has many examples of this robust style, ranging from small bungalows to lakefront estates. In some cases, the buildings utilize elements from Mission and more formal European styles, establishing architecture unique to our area.
Oakland Park is everything Florida living should be—modern convenience and old Florida charm. And its unique preservation of the natural surroundings and the area’s history, character, and craftsmanship create a stunning sanctuary that you’ll want to call home.
