As the southernmost community of Sarasota County, Englewood offers very interesting real estate options for smart buyers, particularly those who are in search of waterfront properties. Manasota Gardens is a quaint neighborhood located right on the shores of Lemon Bay, the body of water that separates Englewood from the beaches of Manasota Key, and it features attractive and spacious single-family homes built on large lots.
Manasota Gardens is located just north of the Manasota Bridge and west of Manasota Beach Road. This neighborhood, which is as large as a subdivision, was initially developed in the 1970s, which means that many of its properties are Florida ranches; however, you can also find Modernist and Mediterranean revival architecture as well as a couple of beach cottages. The ambiance offers what you would expect from a community located in a small Florida beach town: low traffic, mature trees, tropical landscaping, privacy, and tranquility.
Not all properties in Manasota Gardens enjoy waterfront views, but those that do are highly sought after and do not come on the market as often as everyone would like, many are owned by snowbirds who typically hold on to them for decades. The lots measure between 17,000 and 36,000 square feet, which means that all homes get a nice front yard with a driveway and a large patio. To get an idea of pricing as of mid-2019, a two-bedroom Florida ranch with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,604 square feet of living space was listed under $310K. A nice Mediterranean revival home with three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and a private swimming pool was offered for less than $525K.
Not many Manasota Gardens residents drive to the beach; they walk or ride their bikes to the Manasota Bridge, which is just a mile away. Lovers of the outdoors enjoy living within walking distance of the nature trails at South Venice Lemon Bay Preserve and the Manasota Scrub Preserve. The closest shopping center, Venice Village Shoppes, is about 10 minutes away, and it features a Publix supermarket as well as a Walmart store.
