Home Choices Galore!
At Preferred Properties of Sarasota, we know two Florida counties like the back of our hands: Sarasota and Manatee. Those two counties contain countless neighborhoods, which contain countless choices of homes. We sell them all.
The heart of Sarasota is Downtown. A cultural mecca, with the hustle and bustle of businesses, restaurants and theatre, yet only a stone’s throw from beautiful Sarasota Bay. There are remarkable historic homes and apartment buildings nestled between soaring condominiums with breathtaking views.
Travel west from downtown for amazing beach properties. Siesta Key, Lido, and Longboat Key provide a wide variety of homes, from a laid-back bungalows to spacious, elegant luxury homes. The beaches here consistently rank among the best in the United States. On the water, enjoy boating, fishing, snorkeling, and more. Land lubbers will have to settle for boutique shopping, fantastic night life, and high-end cuisine.
Venture to the south part of Sarasota County and you can explore Osprey and Nokomis, which boast some of the most desirable developments in the area. Both cities provide easy access to the area beaches as well as to I-75, the main artery connecting the major cities up and down the west coast of Florida.
In the southern most part of Sarasota County are the cities of Venice and North Port. These sleepy little towns are anything but, and are just great places to live. To play golf, or not to play golf – that is the question. Or go to the beach. Or stroll through downtown or one of the many parks.
Not far north, by way of I-75, you’ll discover a little city called Lakewood Ranch. So little, in fact, part of it is in Sarasota County, and part in Manatee County (okay, maybe not so little). One of the fastest growing planned communities in the country, LWR (as we affectionately call it) offers several “A” rated public schools, private preparatory schools, and several campuses for higher education. The Ranch also offers top notch athletic facilities, attracting talented individuals from all over the world. Over 15,000 residents, who chose from single family homes, condos and townhouses, can’t be wrong about this being a great place to live.
Now that you’re in Manatee County, take a look at the diverse neighborhoods offered here. In East Bradenton, Myakka City and Parrish you will find lovely communities cropping up amongst the citrus groves and cow pastures. Peace and serenity abound here, yet it is steps from I-75, linking you to civilization. Go west from here, and find exquisite homes along the mighty Manatee River.
Next you will land in the heart of Bradenton. This is a city of people from every walk of life. With the location at the southern tip of Tampa Bay, there are ample employment and educational opportunities here. Home prices from the very low to the very high of the spectrum exist here, making the area appealing to all.
The icing on the cake is that Manatee County, like Sarasota, offers pristine beaches and a wide variety of homes from which to choose. Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach, and the northern half of Longboat Key are the destinations of choice for thousands of visitors. These towns often become the second homes, if not primary homes, for many of these travelers.
