Some house hunters believe that Southwest Florida has completely run out of waterfront real estate opportunities. Demand for waterfront properties in the Sunshine State has always been high, which explains why some home shoppers give up too soon on their search for waterfront housing.
Located in southern Sarasota County, Overbrook Gardens in Englewood is a waterfront subdivision which straddles the Charlotte County line. This neighborhood was originally envisioned in the 1960s as a community for boaters; as a result, most homes are located on a waterway that leads to Forked Creek, Lemon Bay and Manasota Key. Even homeowners whose properties are not on the water can launch their boats from a nearby public boat ramp.
Most of the single-family residences at Overbrook Gardens are Florida ranch-style homes, but many of the larger waterfront properties have been remodeled with modern designs. Some custom renovations include elaborate lanais and private courtyards that lead to swimming pools. Even the coziest homes in this neighborhood tend to be more spacious than single-family residences at modern planned developments, and the pricing is decidedly more affordable.
Two and three-bedroom homes at Overbrook Gardens can be found listed under $150K, which is more than reasonable for a Florida waterfront property with access to dock space or a boat launch. Even the most well-appointed homes in this community are routinely listed under $500K.
Residents of Overbrook Gardens live just minutes away from Manasota Key, a barrier island that is home to one of the most family-friendly beaches in Southwest Florida. Suburban comforts such as supermarkets, restaurants, shopping centers, pubs and movie theaters are located in nearby South Venice and Englewood.
With a lake and two neighborhood parks, Overbrook Gardens is perfect for families who want to grow and prosper in a quiet community that enjoys an Old Florida ambiance.
