Beach access on Longboat Key's bayside

Four homes that offer plenty for less in our Home Showcase XXX this month

Dredging in New Pass
Dredging in New Pass - The current project will create a viable boating pass and renourish Lido Key beach.

Over the years I’ve sold many single-family homes in Country Club Shores and I have two listed there that are offered at a good value for a home buyer that wants to be on the water for boating with beach access. Longboat Key has plenty of opportunities to be on the water, so I am highlighting two more in Manatee County on the northern end of the island. One is in Bayview Estates and the fourth is in Cedars East.

Consider yourself fortunate for an easy stroll to the Gulf of Mexico beach from any of these four homes. Country Club Shores is known for its canals that have access to Sarasota Bay and the Gulf. Now that dredging of 185,000 cubic yards has commenced in New Pass, sailboaters in Country Club Shores will have an easier travel through the sometimes treacherous pass on the south end of Longboat Key. The sand from this $3.9 million project will help renourish Lido Key beaches.

Country Club Shores is also known for its proximity to St. Armands Circle and the lifestyle of Sarasota. Created in the 1960s by the Arvida Corporation, Country Club Shores has seen its share of single-story homes upgraded or replaced with sleek multi-story homes. Deeded beach access is granted through entry points off Gulf of Mexico Drive. It is a community that is ever evolving and worthy of a look by home buyers.
