Bradenton is one of those housing markets filled with surprises. Would you believe that you can live in a waterfront subdivision overlooking the Sarasota Bay for less than $125K? This is the reality of Bayshore Gardens in 2020, and not many home buyers are aware of it. Originally platted in the mid-1950s, this coastal neighborhood is a dream come true for boaters who want easy access to the Gulf of Mexico.
Bayshore Gardens starts at the intersection of El Conquistador Parkway and 34th Street SW all the way east to Highway 41. The IMG Academy Golf Club is in this district, which is a temporary home for IMG families who want to save a few dollars. This is easily one of the most affordable coastal neighborhoods in Manatee County, and it is popular among anglers as well as fishing enthusiasts.
If you are interested in a property with a private dock right on a canal that will let you access the Sarasota Bay and Longboat Key, you can find a remodeled Florida ranch priced between $300K and $400K. A two-bedroom villa just blocks away from a Publix supermarket, a Target store, and a Sonic Drive-In, was listed at just $124K in March 2020. Even if you don’t purchase a property along the canals, you can keep your boat at one of the two nearby marinas.
One of the most attractive aspects of Bayshore Gardens is that residents enjoy their very own waterfront recreation center complete with a swimming pool, clubhouse, picnic area, playground, a fishing pier, and a kayak launch. In lieu of a homeowners association, homeowners pay for the upkeep of this coastal rec center along with their annual property tax, which is pretty reasonable compared to other housing markets in the region.
As for the beaches, you can choose between Longboat Key and Bradenton Beach; the former being the less crowded and more peaceful. A few seafood restaurants and oyster bars are close enough for a bike ride, and you driving to Downtown Bradenton will take you about 15 minutes.
