Located just south of The Meadows and north of Fruitville Park, Georgetowne Estates is a quintessential Sarasota suburb that feels like a cross between a gated community and a subdivision. Development of Georgetowne Estates dates back to the early 1980s; as such, the Florida ranch style of residential architecture is predominant, but many properties have been upgraded to feature open floor plans and Mediterranean revival details. There are about 180 single-family residences in the neighborhood; more than a dozen are located along a large lake in the southern section while others sit on quiet cul de sacs.
For the most part, properties in Georgetowne Estates are built on large lots and offer generous living space. A three-bedroom home with two full bathrooms listed in July 2019, for example, offered 1,544 square feet of interior on more than half acre of land, a private swimming pool connected to the house by a covered lanai, modern hurricane shutters, a discreet entrance, and lush landscaping. With affordable prices starting around $277K, this community is highly recommended to families and first-time home buyers.
Life in Georgetown Estates is private and quiet thanks to being nestled between a city park and a large church. Most traffic flows through Honore Avenue on the east and 17th Street to the north; there is very little through-traffic inside neighborhood, which is adorned by mature trees and a thick greenbelt area on the west side. There is a very low homeowners association annual fee that covers maintenance of the two entrances and the area around the lake.
As for location, Georgetown Estates residents enjoy living just 10 minutes away from The Mall at University Town Center and less than 20 minutes from Downtown Sarasota. Driving to the beaches of Siesta Key takes about 30 minutes. The nearest shopping plaza, Sarasota Crossings, can be found along Fruitville Road, which is less than five minutes away. Since Georgetown Estates is part of the University Park district of Sarasota, property value appreciation is virtually guaranteed.
