Longboat Key Real Estate
From the mangrove lined canals and bungalows in the historic Village on the north end to the shimmering towers of luxurious condominiums on the south end, all residences of Longboat Key have one thing in common – easy access to an 11-mile ribbon of sugary white sandy beaches that are among the best in the world.
The Longboat Key Club and Resort on the south end of the island sports a AAA Four Diamond rating and offers 45 holes of championship golf, 20 Har-Tru tennis courts, a fitness center, the Island House Spa, 5 restaurants , and Longboat Key Moorings, a 291 slip deep-water marina. The Club offers several different levels of membership to meet a variety of needs and interests.
Longboat Key real estate options run the gamut. Most of the gulf front residences are condominiums of various ages, sizes, building designs, amenity levels, and price ranges. The bay side of Gulf of Mexico Drive is a mixture of single family homes and condominiums. Many of the single family homes are on canals with easy access to Sarasota Bay and the Intracoastal waterway.
Most would consider Longboat Key to be very exclusive, especially the south end. While the beaches are all public, there are very few public access points. Additionally, many of the communities are behind one or more sets gates. Accordingly, unlike most other barrier islands, Longboat Key gets very little traffic other than from residents or vacationers that are staying on the Key. Home prices on the Key are among the highest in the area. Through 9 months of 2015, the sale price of single family homes on Longboat Key have averaged $1.3 million.
Longboat Key is only a short drive from all of the attractions and amenities available in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, including the Sarasota Bradenton Airport, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, The Asolo Repertory Theater, The Ringling Museum, The South Florida Museum, Selby Gardens, Jungle Gardens, the Sarasota Bradenton Airport, and more. Shoot across the south bridge and the shops of St. Armands Circle are about 1 mile away.
