Longboat Key Luxury Real Estate
Located on a sandy isle of the same name that sits just south of Anna Maria Island, between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, the town of Longboat Key hosts one of the most affluent communities in Florida. Its close proximity to both more developed areas like the cities of Sarasota and Bradenton as well as other exclusive areas, including Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and the fine shopping areas found in nearby St. Armand's Key, give both the seasonal and year-round residents of Longboat Key the best of many worlds.
Though Longboat Key consists mostly of highly valued single family homes, the well-maintained condominiums that do dot its shores are governed by a condominium association that is regularly heralded by state officials and residents for its fairness and dedication to preserving both property value and peace of mind. This combination of stability and geography has made Longboat Key home to celebrities from a variety of fields, including sports and the arts. Indeed, the town's association with former and current sports heroes has made its recreational facilities and centers popular with both professional and amateur athletes, alike.
Nature, however, is ultimately what draws individuals to this barrier island in the first place. Surrounded by warm, tranquil waters, the area is famous for the variety of aquatic species it attracts year round, including a plethora of colorful reef fish, manatees, and dolphins. Given its natural advantages as a locale that's perfectly suited for recreational boating, the presence of such biological diversity makes this barrier island ideal for anyone who enjoys spending their downtime surrounded by the beauty of the seas.
