Similar to the West of the Trail neighborhoods of Sarasota, there are certain neighborhoods in Bradenton that have a certain real estate prestige. Located just west of Downtown Bradenton, Fogartyville is a historic subdivision with plenty of Old Florida charm; a nice community where you can find Key West homes next to Spanish Colonial estates, bungalows, and Cape Cod cottages. Aside from the historical prestige and diverse real estate, Fogartyville offers some riverfront opportunities to prospective home buyers looking for something different.
Establishment of this neighborhood dates back to the late 1800s; it was settled by shipbuilders from Key West who introduced that particular architectural style to Bradenton, and they also took advantage of the burgeoning fishing and maritime trading boom to run a boat building enterprise. These days, Fogartyville is a quiet subdivision where you can find historic real estate, modern mansions, and even a couple of lots perfect for spec and custom-built homes.
One of the most attractive aspects of Fogartyville is that its properties tend to be more reasonably priced when compared to other historic neighborhoods in Southwest Florida. In September 2019, a completely remodeled two-bedroom home originally built in the 1920s was listed for $285K. A large Florida ranch with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms built on 2,190 square feet of interior could be negotiated for $300K. A gorgeous Southern Plantation home with four bedrooms and four bathrooms was listed at $525K.
Life in Fogartyville is quiet and pleasant. The mature trees and extensive landscaping gives the neighborhood character, and walking north on the leafy sidewalks will take you to Knox’s Bayou and the banks of the Manatee River. The Westgate shopping center is within walking distance, and it offers suburban comforts such as Smoothie King, Shake Pit, Bealls Outlet, and a Publix supermarket. The Bradenton Riverwalk is close enough to visit daily, and the same can be said about Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island, which are just 15 minutes away.
