History and luxurious real estate converge at the Eagle Point Club in Venice, a gated community that was once a hunting and fishing resort frequented by friends of wealthy socialite Bertha Palmer, the godmother of Sarasota real estate development. In 1991, this neighborhood was entered into the National Register of Historic Places, which designated 19 of its structures as historically important. One of the most notable guests of the Eagle Point Club resort was American ornithologist James Bond, whose name would later be borrowed by British writer Fleming for his Agent 007 series of spy novels; this happened after World War II during a meeting between Bond and Fleming in Jamaica.
The 24 acres of land that comprise Eagle Point Club sit along the scenic Roberts Bay waterfront. The 44 residences in this community are large country club estates built in styles that range from Modernist mansions to Key West homes. The most well-appointed homes sit along the shoreline and feature private docking space; however, there is also a community dock and fishing pier where you can launch small boats and kayaks. Easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico make Eagle Point Club a paradise for boaters.
As can be imagined, the historic character and prestige of the Eagle Point Club are clearly reflected on local property values. A three-bedroom home with two bathrooms, a private swimming pool, and easy access to the community dock was listed for less than $820K in December 2020. This neighborhood has a great track record in terms of maintenance and ownership pride; you can clearly see this in the historic buildings that have been lovingly maintained and restored over many decades.
Aside from the community marina and sunset viewing area by the waterfront, residents of Eagle Point Club also have access to amenities such as a tennis courts, nature trails, and the historic clubhouse that can be reserved not only for social events but also for overnight guests.
Once you step outside the gate of Eagle Point Club, the modern world takes over, and this is where you can find suburban comforts such as a Winn Dixie supermarket and a Big Lots store. Shops, cafes, and seafood restaurants can be found along Tamiami Trail, and you can be at the tranquil Nokomis Public Beach in a little over five minutes.
