Smart home buyers in Sarasota County know that some of the best real estate deals can be found just south of the Tamiami Trail section that heads east into the Everglades; this is where Gulf View Estates in Venice, an enclave of 370 single-family residences, is located. This is a neighborhood where less than $300K can get you a nice three-bedroom home built on a spacious lot surrounded by tropical landscaping.
Development of Gulf View Estates began in the early 1980s, a time when local home builders were starting to move away from the Florida ranch style of architecture. The home designs in this community follow the Sarasota Modern and Mediterranean revival styles, there is a nice diversity of designs and floor plans as well as homes with extras such as covered swimming pools, elaborate gardens, playgrounds, and mother-in-law apartments.
Unlike other neighborhoods in Sarasota County, the home sites at Gulf View Estates are nicely spaced out instead of being bunched up against each other. Plenty of greenbelt space separates the various sections, some of which enjoy views of a natural canal that connects two lakes adorned with spring fountains. Since the community is adjacent to a nature preserve, residents get to see quite a few Florida and migratory birds flying and resting around the lakes.
First-time home buyers with young families will certainly like the price points at Gulf View Estates, which start at just $235K for a three-bedroom home with two full bathrooms. The closest shopping center, the Venice Village Shoppes, is anchored by a Publix supermarket and Walmart store. A few golf courses are nearby, and there are plenty of parks and nature preserves to visit. Driving to the quiet, white sandy beaches of Manasota Key takes just five minutes from the main entrance.
