Waterfront properties in Southwest Florida tend to command higher prices, but this is not necessarily the case at The Inlets in Nokomis, a hidden boating community in Sarasota County.
The Inlets neighborhood is perfect for boaters, anglers, families, and anyone else who may be interested in waterfront living at its finest. This is a quiet and peaceful community that offers a nice collection of single-family residences as well as townhouses with maintenance-free agreements.
The history of The Inlets dates back to the 1980s. Initially, the builders wanted to develop a yacht club before settling into a more accessible community that will attract boaters as well as families, retirees and seasonal residents. The eponymous inlets of this neighborhood are man-made canals that are frequently dredged to allow easy access to Lyons Bay, the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico.
As of early 2017, two-bedroom homes at The Inlets could be found listed under $250,000; this is a great price for a property measuring 1,530 square feet under air conditioning. More stately homes feature three bedrooms and their own boating slip. Residents who are not boaters can still enjoy waterfront views of the canals or the two lakes in the neighborhood.
The home styles at The Inlets evoke the traditional Sarasota residential architecture developed in the 1980s. Some of the older properties are Florida ranch style houses that have been renovated. The homeowners association fees are collected monthly and provide comprehensive maintenance for all properties, amenities, common areas, and landscaping.
Active retirees and families at The Inlets can enjoy the swimming pool, clubhouse, fitness center, tennis courts, and green areas. There are many spots for launching kayaks, canoes and small boats within the neighborhood or from the nearby Oscar Scherer State Park. Nokomis Beach is less than a mile away, and the beaches of Venice can be reached in 15 minutes. In terms of shopping, various commercial strips can be found along the nearby Tamiami Trail.
