Homes for sale in Longboat Key are mostly split between detached single homes and condominiums. These residential options share the island's space with various hotels, parks, and sports clubs.
To the west of Gulf of Mexico Drive, leading up to Longboat Key's western shore, the land is populated by luxury condo developments, most being low-rise buildings with beach access and various resort style amenities. Tucked between these buildings are larger luxury homes, resting on palatial estates.
Longboat Key's eastern shore is home to many mid-sized canal homes. These homes often feature exclusive waterfront access, with private docks for convenient boating into the estuaries beyond. More affordable options are the rows of cozy, stand-alone villas in crisp, efficient designs.
These are the perfect opportunity to break into the market here, either as a holiday rental property, or a starter home of your very own. The gated serenity and top-class amenities also make these communities a paradise all on their own.
Single homes in the area range in styles and time of construction. Common designs include Mediterranean villas and contemporary ranch homes. Interiors display the highest in luxury and comfort, while yards for these properties can be generous indeed, with covered pools and carriage style driveways.
Longboat Key Area Information
Longboat Key is a 10 mile long barrier island off the Gulf Coast of Florida, located between Anna Maria Island and St. Armands. The island itself is bisected by the line between Manatee and Sarasota counties.
Between Longboat Key and the mainland is the expansive Sarasota Bay, and nearby mainland towns include Bradenton and Sarasota.
The length of the island's western side boasts a beautiful white-sand beach, and its eastern shores host various wetlands, mangrove forests, and fields of lush seagrass.
State Road 789 (Gulf of Mexico Drive) runs the length of Longboat Key, connecting to St. Armands in the south via Lido Shores, and to Bradenton Beach in the north via Coquina Beach across Longboat Pass. Both of these points run through convenient shopping and commercial districts before connecting to the mainland, and straight to downtown Sarasota from the southern bridge.
Longboat Key Parks & Attractions
Longboat Key is home to many parks and recreational facilities, not to mention its beautiful setting between the beautiful Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
