House hunters who are ready for something different in Sarasota County should strongly consider narrowing their search to Venice, for it is here where they can find interesting neighborhoods such as Myakka River Trails, a gated community where every homeowner gets at least five acres of land, and in some cases the lots can be as large as 15 acres overlooking the majestic Myakka River and the pristine state park beyond.
From north to south, this gated community takes up two miles of riverbank; it is nestled within the Myakka River State Park, and it borders Deer Prairie Creek Preserve, a wildlife sanctuary for species such as wading birds, Florida panthers, deer, raccoons, and other animals that live in the Everglades. Warm Mineral Springs and North Port are right across the river. If you are the kind of home buyer who values privacy, you will love the dense nature preserves that surround the neighborhood; plus, deed restrictions call for homes to feature front and rear setbacks in order to maximize distancing and privacy. Some riverbank lots have their own private docks from which you can easily access Charlotte Harbor for some of the best fishing in the Sunshine State.
Even though Myakka River Trails is a pretty large community, only 60 estates had been completed as of early 2021. The earliest homes were built in the mid-1980s, and there are a handful of lots ready to be developed. If your plans for the New Year include building a custom home, you can get started here with five-acre for just $135K. You will not find homes that measure less than 3,000 square feet of living space because that is another deed restriction. To get an idea of the real estate opportunities available in this amazing neighborhood, consider this 2021 listing for $595K: Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a three-car garage, and a detached workshop built on five acres.
Horse riding trails, a swimming pool, a playground, tennis courts, and a boat ramp are the amenities that Myakka River Trails residents can enjoy along with their friends. Nearby attractions include two state parks and three nature preserves located about five minutes away. Once you exit the gate and drive down the Tamiami Trail, you will not have to go very far to find supermarkets, stores, cafes, restaurants, or pubs. The beaches of Manasota Key are less than 30 minutes away.
