Myakka River Trails in Venice Florida is the perfect community for house hunters who pride themselves in finding special neighborhoods in off-the-beaten path locations. Located right at the edge of the Deer Prairie Creek and just south of the vast and pristine Myakka River State Park, this private neighborhood is irresistible for nature lovers.
The Myakka River Trails residential community is special in many ways. This is the only neighborhood developed on the banks of the Myakka River, which means that each new construction has been mindfully built following the strict green building codes of the Sunshine State. The landscaping consists of plant species native to Florida and the Everglades. Most homes here are spacious and custom-built; they range between 3,500 to 10,000 square feet of living space. As of early 2013, there were about only about a dozen lots left, and the developers will allow no more than 60 homes in the neighborhood.
Many of the homes in Myakka River Trails have private dock space that connect to the properties via raised wooden decks over the wetlands. Kayaking and fishing are the most popular activities, followed by hiking and bike riding. Nature lovers have three major parks nearby: the Deer Prairie Creek, Myakka River State Park and the State Forest. Florida wildlife sightings are plentiful in the areas surrounding the community.
Since development of Myakka River Trails is fairly recent, house hunters must either look out for the right time when a home comes on the market or purchase an available lot, which range between $175,000 to $299,000. A five-bedroom luxury home built on 5,631 square feet recently listed for $799,000.
Myakka River Trails is located close to the east-to-west stretch of the Tamiami Trail connecting South Venice to North Port and beyond to Fort Myers, Naples, the Everglades and Miami. The neighborhood is far from complete seclusion; South Venice is only a few miles away, and there are various Sarasota public and charter schools nearby.
