Longboat Key Estates is a traditional neighborhood located in one of the most desirable subdivisions of the Sarasota County housing market. This barrier island community lies right in the middle of Longboat Key; it overlooks the Sarasota Bay estuary as well as Bayshore Gardens across the water.
This single-family home community was developed in the wake of World War II during a time of great prosperity. Most of the veterans who initially built homes in Longboat Key Estates wanted nothing more than to be able to enjoy everything the Sarasota Keys have to offer, which includes boating, fishing and going to the beach.
There are just 46 home sites in this island community. Many of the properties are Florida ranch-style homes that have been renovated over the decades; however, there are various Mediterranean estates and Key West homes to choose from. At any given time, home buyers can find about a handful of listings priced from about $655K to nearly $2M. Most of the properties feature three-bedrooms with living spaces that range between 1,578 and 5,000 square feet. Some homeowners enjoy views of the Sarasota Bay as well as of the Gulf of Mexico from their second-floor balconies.
Many of the homes at Longboat Key Estates have features that make them extra appealing; outdoor summer kitchens, tiki huts, and private piers are some examples. There are community amenities as well: a fishing pier, common dock, a small park, and even a private section of the beach on the Gulf side of the island. Walking to the beach takes about five minutes.
The Longboat Key Estates lifestyle invites residents to stay on the island as much as possible. To this effect, the Shoppes of Bay Isles are just a short drive away, and this is where residents can find a Publix Greenwise market along with other conveniences such as a drugstore, banks, cafes, and restaurants.
