One of the most endearing aspects of the Southwest Florida real estate market is that it offers many hidden gems thanks to the pleasant topography of the region. Sorrento Shores is one such hidden gem; a set of waterfront communities ideal for boating and fishing enthusiasts that has been kept secret since the 1960s.
Sorrento Shores is located in south Osprey, just north of Venice and west of the Tamiami Trail. There are approximately 240 single-family residences in Sorrento Shores, and most have a waterfront view and direct access to the canals that lead to the magnificent Oscar Scherer State Park to the east or the narrow beauty of Casey Key to the west.
The various housing styles that can be appreciated at Sorrento Shores reflect the sensibility of residential architecture throughout the decades. Florida ranch-style houses compete next to Key West homes, and the newer Mediterranean design that is popular across Sarasota is also evident. The floor plans range from the modest to the stately; a three-bedroom and two-bathroom, 1,746 square foot home starts at $250,000. A luxury five-bedroom custom-built home with private deep-water dock and the most spectacular view is typically listed at $2.5M.
Despite being a hidden neighborhood, real estate activity in Sorrento Shores is always steady. At the end of January 2013, only 17 homes were on the market. There is an abundance of nearby schools near Sorrento Shores. Nokomis Elementary and Middle Schools serve the younger students, and Venice Senior High is not far away either. Suburban comforts such as shopping and dining are just a short drive away.
Fishing and boating are popular hobbies, but Sorrento Shores is also a great place for nature lovers thanks to the massive Oscar Scherer State Park next door, one of Florida’s most pristine reserves. Golf and tennis opportunities can be found across Sarasota and Manatee counties, and the white-sandy beaches of Florida’s Gulf Coast are within biking distance.
