Most people think of Samoset as a suburban district of Bradenton mostly known for having been home to major citrus farms operated by the Tropicana company. Samoset used to be a chartered municipality with a rich history dating back to the earliest days of Manatee County, but it ceased being a town just before the Great Depression. Samoset could have competed on a commercial level with Bradenton because of its rail station, but things did not work out as planned for the founders of this once-fledgling city.
These days, Samoset and West Samoset are two residential districts that highlight the charms of living in Manatee County. There are five subdivisions between the two districts, but together they are considered a single neighborhood in terms of real estate opportunities.
Samoset essentially runs east of South Tamiami Trail, north of 38th Avenue, south of 13th Avenue, and west of the River Run Golf Links. This district can be accurately described as being leafy, quiet, safe, and very family-friendly. Having an elementary school in the middle of the district and a middle school in the northern section has attracted a nice diversity of families over the decades; moreover, many of the retiree homeowners in Samoset actually grew up here.
Whether you intend to raise a family, retire, or become a real estate investor, you will find many aspects of Samoset conducive to a bright future. Let’s start with housing affordability: You can actually find Old Florida cottages with two-bedrooms listed for less than $90K. There are also 10,000 square feet lots ready for development and priced at just $50K. Nicely remodeled Florida ranches with three bedrooms and two bathrooms are routinely listed under $200K. The outskirts of Samoset are where you will find shopping plazas, although this neighborhood also offers small supermarkets, cafes, and some stores within its limits.
Here’s a good reason why Samoset could be a smart investment in 2021: A 100-acre plot of land has been approved for construction of 500 single-family homes, and it is attracting interest among major developers of gated communities. Once a project breaks ground in this part of town, you can expect Samoset property values to quickly appreciate, particularly when you consider how close the district is to Pirate City, the spring training facility of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Other major attractions nearby are the Bradenton Riverfront and the Manatee County beaches.
