When you are ready to invest in a Southwest Florida property that combines luxury with a coastal advantage, look no further than the gated community of Blackburn Harbor in Osprey. Located just a few blocks southwest of the main entrance to Oscar Scherer State Park, Blackburn Harbor is a large gated community where you can find mid-rise condominium units as well as elegant villas right on the water. This neighborhood attracts buyers who are into fishing and boating, but anyone interested in a luxurious, resort-like lifestyle should take a look at the available listings.
Development of Blackburn Harbor started in the mid-1980s; however, many paired villas were completed a few years ago. Luxury construction and upscale amenities have always been a major focus of development in this waterfront community. Ground-level villas, for example, combine natural stone flooring with hardwood; condominium units feature large granite countertops in the kitchen as well as bar seating areas near panoramic balconies.
As you can expect from a waterfront community located near the Intracoastal Waterway, Blackburn Harbor offers boating slips, wooden piers, and a kayak launching point. Experienced boaters can reach Blackburn or Dryman Bay, both located just east of Casey Key, in about 20 minutes. Other amenities include tennis courts, a resort-style swimming pool that stays heated during the winter, a very nice and inviting picnic area, and nature trails. It should be noted that virtually every property in this neighborhood provides waterfront views; even villas that do not sit right in front of the harbor or canals can enjoy the view of a lagoon in the southern end.
In mid-2019, $319K will get you a three-bedroom villa with 2.5 bathrooms. A three-bedroom condo unit on a fifth floor with incredible views of the bay and the Gulf of Mexico can be negotiated for about $755k. Residential development in this part of Osprey has increased considerably over the last few years, which means that you can expect prices to rise in the next few months. To get to the beaches of Casey Key, you can drive about five minutes north to Blackburn Point Road; for a more family-friendly beach experience, Nokomis is just less than 15 minutes to the south. Since Blackburn Harbor is located near Tamiami Trail, you only have to drive a few blocks to reach the shopping district.
