Located near the South Gate Ridge district, Beneva Woods in Sarasota is one of those neighborhoods that many house hunters never get around to discovering.
Beneva Woods is discreetly hidden by the lakes of the Red Bough Slough north of Clark Road. This is a single-family home community that dates back to the late 1970s. The developers of Beneva Woods took advantage of the mature forest near the Red Bough Slough to build the first set of Florida ranch-style homes; since then, less than 80 residences were built.
The low residential density of Beneva Woods is justified by the abundant greenery that surrounds the neighborhood. Homeowners enjoy pleasant nature views of lakes or forest patches, and they also delight in having enough backyard and garden space for vegetable gardens, swimming pools, playgrounds, or to keep pets.
Most of the homes at Beneva Woods feature three or four bedrooms built on interior spaces between 2,000 and 2,600 square feet. Aside from renovated Florida ranch-style homes, a few residences have been remodeled with Mediterranean architecture designs. All homes are surrounded by tall pines, oaks and palm trees; some are shaded year-round by a thick canopy.
Pricing at Beneva Woods starts under $380K. Since this is a small neighborhood, house hunters can only expect to see about a dozen listings every few months. Many of the homes feature attractive extras such as Florida rooms, advanced security systems, remodeled kitchens, swimming pools, and more.
Residents of Beneva Woods enjoy living close to everything that Sarasota has to offer. The Beneva Village Shoppes, which have everything from a Publix supermarket to drugstores, pubs and restaurants, are within walking distance while the Westfield Mall is just a short drive away to the south. Following Clark Road to the west leads to Stickney Point Road and the white-sand beaches of Siesta Key, which are close enough to reach on a bicycle. Downtown Sarasota is only ten minutes away.
