Bay Lake Estates is one of those Bradenton neighborhoods that really lives up to its name. Located right between the entrances to the Village of Cortez and Tidy Island, Bay Lake Estates is a residential enclave where six lakes and a couple of canals provide waterfront views to nearly all the single-family homes in this placid neighborhood.
All of the properties in this community sit on spacious lots; quite a few measure more than an acre, and the structures can be as large as 2,800 square feet for homes with four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. This well-established neighborhood broke ground in the early 1980s, so you can still a few modest Florida ranch-style homes next to imposing Mediterranean revival estates complete with private docking space along canals that provide access to the Sarasota Bay.
The mature trees and lush tropical landscaping of Bay Lake Estates are immaculately maintained through reasonable homeowners association fees. Thanks to flexible deed guidelines in terms of architecture, many homes have been upgraded with extras such as fenced swimming pools, covered lanais, sundecks, summer kitchens, and balconies overlooking the lakes.
Families and retirees will find that this community’s location has a lot to offer. The best seafood restaurants in Southwest Florida are just minutes away on Cortez Road, and this is how you get to Bradenton Beach in just six minutes. The Manatee County Golf Course is about a mile away to the east, and you can continue driving for another mile to reach the various recreational opportunities of G.T. Bray Park, which include a swimming pool, gym, tennis courts, jogging trails, basketball courts, and more. A Walmart Supercenter and Publix supermarkets are located just north of the golf course.
In late 2021, you could expect two-bedroom homes in Bay Lake Estates to be price around $300K. The larger properties with swimming pools and docking space start around $500K depending on the upgrades they offer. Available listings do not last very long on the market because of the reasonable prices for waterfront properties.
