The modern real estate development of Longboat Key owes a lot to Country Club Shores, the southernmost bay side neighborhood in the island. Country Club Shores is essentially a series of canals that jut out into Sarasota Bay from Longboat Key. Development of the area began in the early 1960s, and as expected many residences feature lots of old Florida charm. These homes have some of the best views of the Sarasota skyline, the John Ringling Causeway, and the Golden Gate district.
Country Club Shores has the most eclectic and prestigious collections of single-family homes in the area. The homes can be accessed from Gulf of Mexico Drive, the long road that traverses the island and separates the ritzy neighborhood from the Longboat Key Club. Many of the homes have their own private docks that are just a short sail away from the Gulf of Mexico. Country Club Shores is a haven for boating and fishing enthusiasts, although the Longboat Key Club just across the road features swimming, a luxurious spa, exclusive beach access, golf, tennis, hiking, and more.
The single-family residences at Country Club Shores are all charming, but the floor plans and architectural designs vary greatly. A remodeled one-story and two-bedroom home built in the old Florida style complete with a porch, sun deck and small boat dock can be priced at $400K, but a five-bedroom, 6,000 square feet, multilevel Spanish and Mediterranean palatial estate with a dock that you can tie a luxury yacht to will have to be negotiated at around $6 million.
Luxury subdivisions within Country Club Shores offer a touch of planned development to an already spectacular lifestyle. This exclusive waterfront neighborhood is highly sought after not just by boaters, but also by families who appreciate the convenience of living in a community where access to Sarasota is a very short drive away.
