Many of the 72 homes in Corey’s Landing were built in the three years of 1989 to 1991. And over half of the homes in the community are on a channel that hugs the shoreline of Sarasota Bay. Your morning coffee break on your back deck of Mistletoe Lane faces a splendid view of the sun rising over the bay, a luxury lifestyle worthy of the pursuit.

The community and streets of Byron Lane and Mistletoe Lane owe their names to the first 1895 homesteader, Byron Corey. Byron had 154 acres of land on Longboat Key but lived in a home that was part of Byron’s dock. The acreage was fertile soil used to grow vegetables, which he transported to the Tampa market by means of the steamship Mistletoe. In 1998 land development was granted that followed an archeological survey which authorized home construction. The survey concluded that there was no significant prehistoric resources but noted future stabilization of an Indian shell mound around the perimeter of the channel. Shell mounds were ceremonial and common in Florida, a popular one is located in the Historic Spanish Point of Osprey.

Today there are modern amenities that exist for homeowners in Corey’s Landing. Membership in the Longboat Key Club grants you access to the resort championship Harbourside Golf Course which is steps out the back door of homes on Byron and Fair Oaks lanes. If your super-yacht is too big for the private dock of your back yard, space is available for the largest of private boats at the full service Longboat Key Club Moorings. The marina is within a short bike ride of Corey’s Landing.
