Placida Homes for Sale and Real Estate
Placida Real Estate and Lifestyle Choices
Placida Real Estate is kind of interesting because there is a residential lifestyle for everyone and every budget. Many homes are a little older and need some help, but there are communities with brand new homes as well. You can also pick your builder and build your home according to your specifications. Whether you are looking for a single family home, town home with elevator, condominium or a small home on the water, it is all there. It maybe a little hidden. Send us an email and we can help.
Placida offers water-front homes on creeks, canals or direct bayfront homes directly on Lemon Bay. Many of the homes come with Gulf access. Golf Course properties are available in gated and non-gated golf communities. Homes on large lots are available, too, but they have become a little scarce. The counties are now promoting high or higher density communities. Homes on acreage do not belong to that group of properties. Many properties are nestled into a lush tropical landscape and offer breathtaking water views. Placida used to be remote, but that has changed with new roads in place. Now Placida is highly accessible just south of Englewood. It is still a low density are, but with all the amenities anyone would want within minutes.
Anyhow, many properties are nestled into a lush tropical landscape and offer breathtaking water views. Most home buyers are becoming familiar with the “high density” idea and do not mind unless it is not zero lot line.
Placida used to be remote, but that has changed a lot with new roads in place. Now Placida, which is located south of Englewood, is highly accessible. It is still a medium to a low-density area.
Water Access to the Gulf of Mexico
Placida began once as a fishing village. That was because of its location. That hasn’t changed so much. Residents visitors still enjoy fishing the local waters however, it shifted from commercial to more leisure fishing activities. The community is ideal because it offers easy access to the Intracoastal waterway, Gasparilla Sound, Charlotte Harbor and, of course, the Gulf of Mexico. With the right boat, the Gulf is only a short ride away. You don’t have a large yacht, fishing boat, or a kayak? If you want to spend a fun day on the water you can rent a powerboat/kayak or stay on dry land. You can still have fun. The Placida Fishing Pier, for example, is a great place to try your luck with bait and hook, or book a fishing tour right at Placida Harbor.
Dining and Shopping
There are many great waterfront restaurants to sit outside and enjoy the sunsets, some of them have even live music on certain days. Go shopping at the Murdock Mall or make a trip to the Albritton Art Gallery at Placida Harbor which offers unique art. While you are there go to the “Fishery Restaurant” and enjoy the sunset. You could also drive a few miles further north. On the left-hand side, you will see the Palm Island Marina and Resort. Park your car in the Leverock’s parking lot and take the water taxi to “Rum Bay.” You will love it. The restaurant sits on palm island and can only be reached by boat. Be prepared, the pirate who is driving the boat charges you a dollar for the passage.
