Many 55+ neighborhoods in Sarasota County tend to be located in suburban areas that do not offer much in terms of convenience; they are either golf communities or condominium towers that lack the feeling of single-family residences. Village Plaza in Sarasota is a different type of neighborhood for senior citizens; it is located between the Southgate and Sarasota Springs districts, not far from a shopping and dining corridor, and it offers villas and townhouses that do not feel like cramped condo units.
Village Plaza is just north of a commercial district that runs along Bee Ridge Road, which means that residents have easy access to suburban comforts such as Walgreens, Denny’s, Publix, a Walmart Neighborhood Center, and the Medical Center of Sarasota. The villas are built in a Spanish Mediterranean style, and the neighborhood amenities are ideal for those seeking an active lifestyle; there is a heated swimming pool, shuffle board, a fitness center with a sauna, a clubhouse, and a barbecue area for grilling and dining al fresco.
In this maintenance-free community, you do not have to worry about exterior repairs, landscaping, pest control, or the water utility. The neighborhood is surrounded by a thick greenbelt section that functions as a buffer to keep things quiet and private. Prices in early 2020 start at just $118K for a spacious two-bedroom condo with two bedrooms and two bathrooms built on 1,268 square feet of interior. Larger two-bedroom villas start around $229K.
Golf players have the Village Green course right next door, and there is also Elsie’s Family Golf Center for when young grandchildren come to visit. The popular Bobby Jones Golf Club is just a 10-minute drive away. On a day with normal traffic conditions, you can drive to the arts and culture center of Downtown Sarasota in about 15 minutes, and the same goes for the beach at Siesta Key.
