As one of the most attractive housing markets in Southwest Florida, Longboat Key is where you can find dream communities such as Dock on the Bay, an exclusive condominium that will appeal to boaters, anglers, beach lovers, and all home buyers looking for affordable waterfront properties.
Dock on the Bay is located right in the middle of the Longboat Key barrier island; it faces the Buttonwood Bayou and is part of the Buttonwood Harbor Marina, which means that you can find docking space for your boat right in your backyard. The dwelling units in this neighborhood are actually independent townhouses that range between 900 and 1679 square feet. There are only 19 units in this community, and a few are offered as seasonal rentals, which means that available listings do not come on the market as often as most buyers would like.
To give you an idea of everything Dock on the Bay has to offer, consider a $469K listing from June 2020: Two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms on two levels and 1,679 square feet of interior. You can see the water from the screened lanai as well as from one of the bedrooms.
Even though this neighborhood dates back to the late 1960s, it feels like new thanks to the contemporary architectural style and the careful maintenance provided over the years. The meticulous tropical landscaping gives a nice botanical garden ambiance, and the amenities are worthy of a Caribbean resort: Two swimming pools, tennis courts, a waterfront deck for fishing and lounging, and the marina. The Buttonwood Bayou is a like a small refuge for marine life, thus you get to see dolphins, manatees, and coastal birds. The white sands of Longboat Key beaches are right across the road.
A feeling of seclusion is part of what makes Dock on the Bay so charming, but you do not have to travel far to find suburban comforts. The Shoppes of Bay Isles are just five minutes south, and they are anchored by a new Publix GreenWise supermarket in addition to a CVS drugstore.
