Emerald Harbor in Longboat Key is a luxurious, vintage neighborhood that evokes the feeling of an Old Florida seaside community. Emerald Harbor was envisioned five decades ago by developers who wanted to create an upscale boating community.
These days, Emerald Harbor is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods of Longboat Key. Whereas other communities in this barrier island focus on providing a resort lifestyle, the ambiance at Emerald Harbor is that of a suburban enclave for boaters. The neighborhood is located next door to a marina, but many of the homeowners here enjoy private docking space.
The predominant architectural styles at Emerald Harbor include Florida ranches, Mediterranean estates and Key West homes. Most of the 83 properties feature waterfront views; the rest look out into a mangrove that protects the harbor from tropical storms.
