One of the most aptly-named residential communities of Longboat Key is located on the northern end of this barrier island, which means that it is close to the protected isles of the Sister Keys. Hideaway Bay is home to some of the most spectacular real estate of the Longboat Key housing market, and most house hunters never get to visit it.
There are less than 20 single-family residences in Hideaway Bay, but every single home in this upscale neighborhood is unforgettable. Since this is an exclusive development, home buyers will notice that only a couple of listings come on the market at any given time; for this reason, it is important to work closely with an experienced real estate agent.
Hideaway Bay is blessed with plenty of Florida nature. Most drivers who travel along Gulf of Mexico Drive, the sole road crossing the length of Longboat Key from Manatee County south to Sarasota County, never even realize that waterfront mansions are hiding behind the thick mangroves and Australian pines. To get to Hideaway Bay, one must follow General Harris Street until it comes to an end.
There is not a single, defining architectural style in Hideaway Bay. Tuscan mansions sit next to Spanish Colonial waterfront mansions with private dock space. To get an idea of real estate pricing in this neighborhood, consider that a four-bedroom and five-bathroom estate with three parking spaces and 4,500 square feet of living space can be negotiated under $3 million. All homes in Hideaway Bay enjoy pristine views of Millar Bay, Harris Bayou and the Sister Keys.
Many residents of Hideaway Bay enjoy fishing, boating and walking to the beach. This neighborhood is located very close to Avenue of the Flowers, which is the town plaza of Longboat Key. Here is where residents can shop at an upscale Publix supermarket and other major retail chains. There are also bistros and pubs nearby, which means that neighbors can spend more time on the island without having to drive to nearby Bradenton or Sarasota.
