Some of the best real estate deals in Southwest Florida can be found in the more established neighborhoods of Sarasota. While first-time home buyers are being lured by the marketing strategies that promote gated communities and new construction, seasoned buyers look at more affordable and enticing opportunities in neighborhoods such as Beechwood Estates.
Located just minutes away from the downtown district, Beechwood Estates is a quiet subdivision that was originally developed in the 1970s. Not many people are familiar with this neighborhood due to the mature greenbelt that separates it from Fruitville Road. Beechwood Estates has a pleasant and secluded ambiance that is ideal for families who want to see their children ride bicycles and play safely outside.
There are less than 50 homes in this community; most of them are spacious Florida ranches that have been remodeled in recent years. This is not a tract housing neighborhood; Beechwood Estates was developed at a time when local builders focused on working with homeowners to complete one house at a time, and many of their projects were spec homes.
Nearly a dozen Beechwood Estates homes were listed for sale in 2018, which is unusual for a neighborhood known as a great place to raise a family. It so happens that many of the sellers are retiring and downsizing at this time, and this translates into great opportunities for smart buyers who are in the market for spacious homes in a peaceful setting. Pricing starts under $215K for a two-bedroom Florida ranch built on a lot measuring 11,234 square feet with nearly 1,500 square feet under air conditioning.
Some of the homes in this community are situated along a lake while the rest are nestled within greenbelts where mature trees provide shade and privacy. A few shops, parks and restaurants are located along Fruitville Road, and the Bobby Jones Golf Club is right across the street. Driving to Siesta Key Beach takes about 20 minutes.
