From about 2008 to 2014, home shoppers in Southwest Florida focused on properties located near major urban centers. In Manatee County, this residential trend translated into many house hunters looking at properties as close to Downtown Bradenton as possible. In 2016, real estate professionals expect that many home shoppers will rediscover neighborhoods such as Braden Woods in Bradenton, which offers a countryside lifestyle not far from urban centers.
Although Braden Woods feels like an exurban community, it is actually located closer to Bradenton than most of the Lakewood Ranch villages. This subdivision is not a gated community, but it is surrounded by mature woodlands that make it feel secluded and exclusive. Lots greater than one acre are not uncommon at Braden Woods; most of the single-family homes in this neighborhood feature long driveways, great patios and spacious front yards.
Braden Woods will strongly appeal to home buyers looking to settle and raise their families in a safe and pleasant community. Some of the properties dating back to the 1980s are Florida ranch-style homes; more recent construction features spec homes and Mediterranean-style states. Floor plans are generally larger than 1,900 square feet of living space; some of the larger, four-bedroom models are built on more than 3,000 square feet.
A few of the properties in Braden Woods are built near ponds and small lakes; pricing starts around $284K, and sales have been brisk in 2015. This neighborhood is expected to see greater demand in 2016 from house hunters looking for more space in quieter communities at reasonable prices.
Braden Woods is perfect for residents who work in either Bradenton or Sarasota since those cities can be reached in less than 30 minutes. The intersection of I-75 and State Road 70 is less than five minutes away, and this is where residents can find a major shopping district that includes Wal-Mart stores, Publix supermarkets and other major retail chains.
