Some of the better real estate opportunities in Southwest Florida can be found on the far southern end of Sarasota County. Smart house hunters should inquire about Englewood, a small town located south of Venice, east of Manasota Key and north of the Charlotte Harbor Preserve. This is where the Englewood Gardens neighborhood can be found.
Englewood Gardens is a large subdivision situated along the banks of Forked Creek. Many of the single-family homes in this neighborhood sit right on the water; in fact, quite a few properties enjoy private dock space.
Englewood is known as a community that has managed to retain plenty of Old Florida charm, and Englewood Gardens is a very emblematic subdivision in this regard; this neighborhood that was originally developed in the 1960s, and thus each home site parceled is larger than an acre. The architectural styles are predominantly Florida ranch-style homes, but many various homeowners have remodeled their properties to the Mediterranean and Key West styles.
Home shoppers who arrive in Englewood Gardens are usually in search of larger waterfront properties in a quiet neighborhood where their dollars can really stretch out. The homes in this community tend to be more spacious than those found elsewhere in Sarasota County. On the higher end, waterfront estates with resort-style swimming pools, private dock space and fishing piers can be priced at more than $1 million, but modest three-bedroom Florida ranch-style houses with 2,000 square feet of living space can be found at less than $220K.
Englewood Gardens is preferred by young families, retirees, seasonal residents, and single professionals alike. Lovers of the outdoors enjoy living close to Manasota Key, Ann Denver Park, Myakka River State Park, Charlotte Harbor Preserve, and the Stump Pass Beach State Park. The Merchants Crossing shopping center, which is anchored by a large Publix Supermarket, is just five minutes away.
