Sarasota County is filled with many interesting neighborhoods, and a few of them are located east of Palmer Ranch and I-75. Gator Creek in Sarasota is unique in the sense that it offers homeowners a complete country club lifestyle that goes beyond the traditional golf and tennis options. Gator Creek is also a high-end, equestrian exurb.
Gator Creek is located less than 15 miles away from Downtown Sarasota, but residents feel as if they were living in a separate, Old Florida county. Gator Creek is about three miles east of I-75, just to the northwest of Myakka River State Park. Although this community occupies an area greater than 500 acres, there are less than 70 home sites measuring between five to ten acres each.
A typical property at Gator Creek is a Florida ranch-style home with at least four bedrooms and more than 3,500 square feet of living space. These are mostly custom-built residences, and thus house hunters can expect to find plenty of extras such as wine cellars, double balconies, stables, guest houses, swimming pools, playgrounds, libraries, studios, vegetable gardens, and more. Pricing typically starts around $650K.
Gator Creek will certainly appeal to nature lovers. Property lines are divided by horse trails and large sections of mature forest that serves as habitat for many wildlife species. Some of the homes overlook ponds and small lakes. A trip to the nearby Myakka River State Park involves driving less than ten minutes, and the beaches of the Sarasota Keys are close enough to visit on the weekends.
Membership at the Gator Creek Country Club is not compulsory, and it is actually very limited. Residents who enjoy golf or tennis have many private and public options to explore around Sarasota County. Shopping and entertainment can be found just two miles away at the Bee Ridge shopping center, which features a large Publix supermarket.
