South Oaks Townhouses sit on Herbert Street one block east of South Nova Road and near Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens. The townhomes are buried under a dense layer of shade trees which help them to stay cooler during the heat of a midsummer day in Central Florida. The area itself is a blend of residential, light commercial, and retail.
Living this close to South Nova Road means being close to a selection of excellent places to eat ranging from fast food to fine dining. Along with this, you are within a ten-minute drive of West Port Center and the many shops and restaurants to be found there. You should have no problem finding a place to buy your dog their favorite treats and food.
From your townhouse, the beach is no more than a ten-minute drive with many stores and restaurants nearby. The miles of sand offer a great place to take long walks in the fresh air.
While the townhouses may be just off South Nova Road, you should know that this is a bustling area of town as there a number of businesses. It is a major artery road running from Ormond Beach to New Smyrna Beach. The traffic is usually quite heavy but gets even worse during rush hours and the height of tourist season. Luckily, there are sidewalks for you to use and plenty of crosswalks, but with a gas station on the corner and the many other businesses along this stretch of road, the noise and traffic may be too much for a nervous pup.
The ground here is very flat and unexciting, but at least you have sidewalks with plenty of shade for the two of you to enjoy during the hottest parts of the year. The trees also help to protect you from the chilly breezes and rains that show up during the winter months.
The nearest green space to your home is the Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens. The site was once home to a sugar factory and the Dunlawton Plantation. Today, it is home to botanical gardens, the ruins of the plantation and sugar factory, and statues left over from an amusement park that once stood here. It's a great place to take your whole family!
A little further north is Reed Canal Park where you and your dog can enjoy going for walks on the various nature trails, around the lake, or play on the athletic fields.
Ten minutes to the south is the Seemore Memorial Dog Park, a large area that has been fenced off into two separate areas. Each section has plenty of water for the dogs along with plenty of shade and benches in the shade for you to relax on while your pooch gets out and enjoys some off-leash play time with the others.
