Located near the South Venice district, Venice Gardens is an established subdivision where families, single professionals, and retirees can truly enjoy a suburban lifestyle. Development of this subdivision dates back to the 1950s; it was part of an effort to attract veterans returning home from World War II, and it was also meant to give Venice more character as an American city at a time when it was mostly known as a coastal resort.
The boundaries of Venice Gardens start with the Tamiami Trail in the west, Jacaranda Boulevard to the east, and Center Road to the north. The nearest golf courses, Pelican Pointe and Venice East, attract retirees, seasonal residents, and avid golf players. This part of town is filled with lakes, canals, and greenbelt spaces that attract birds and other wildlife. If you are looking for affordable homes with water views, be sure to put Venice Gardens at the top of your house hunting list.
By virtue of being a large subdivision, you can count on seeing a dozen or so Venice Gardens properties coming on the market every month. This is one of the few residential districts in Sarasota County where you can still find a three-bedroom home with two full bathrooms listed for less than $210K; this is a bargain when you consider that the median home price in Venice is closer to $275K. A home with extras such as a covered swimming pool overlooking the lake can be negotiated for less than $300K.
Although this is not a gated community, Venice Gardens is managed under a homeowners association regime supported by very low fees. The HOA funds are used towards maintenance of the swimming pool, clubhouse, and playground. Venice Gardens residents enjoy living close to shopping districts near Jacaranda Boulevard, where you can find a Winn Dixie supermarket, and Tamiami Trail, where you can shop at Lowe’s, Petco, Office Depot, Stein Mart, and other stores. Caspersen Beach is close enough to visit on a daily basis; this family-friendly spot does not get crowded like Venice Beach.
