Learn more about Englewood

Living in Englewood offers residents a lifestyle that caters to people who love a laid-back atmosphere combined with year-round outdoor activities. Englewood is not a big city. Therefore, if you need all the bells and whistles of a metropolis, this might be a little too quiet for you. You will not find exoctic bars, large shopping malls with international flair, or world-class entertainment in Englewood. However, if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of a big city, Englewood might ignite a spark.

Five Main Neighborhoods

Englewood is an unincorporated community, divided between Sarasota and Charlotte Counties. In other words, Englewood is not governed by a local municipal corporation. So? Who cares about that? Nobody. The sun is still shining, and life is good even without elected officials.

Englewood is comprised of five main neighborhoods: Manasota Key, Gulf Cove, Englewood Beach, Englewood Isles, and Grove City, with a total area population of over 15,000 residents. If you want to make it really simple, you could say that Englewood consists of two zip code areas on a map, but that is very simplistic.

State Road 776 is the Main Artery

Englewood is pretty much lined up left and right along SR 776 which connects the area with Venice to the west and Port Charlotte/North Port to the east. Dearborn Street or the “Olde Englewood Village” shows a little of Englewood’s History. It is the oldest part of Englewood and the center of the town. Dearborn Street is not impressive. At least you will not hold your breath when you see it. However, there are still some excellent restaurants and street cafes where you can have lunch or dinner. In the wintertime, there is a  large Farmers Market with lots of action and even live music. And once in a while, residents will gather for parades and other festivities.

Englewood has something for (almost) Everyone

You will find only a handful of gated communities with mostly more upscale homes. Boca Royal, Oyster Creek Golf and Country Club, and Stillwater are three of them. Boca Royal is the most upscale community with bigger homes in a unique subtropical setting. Oyster Creek is a nicely maintained community with low HOA fees. Both gated communities have a golf course and a Clubhouse; Bocca provides a restaurant with fine dining for the residents. Fine dining at your fingertips. Stillwater has an electronic gate and no amenities. Although less sophisticated, the community is still lovely.

Waterfront and Non-Waterfront

Englewood Isles is a non-gated community with homes on boatable and non-boatable canals. The community has its own marina and is directly connected with Lemon Bay, and via Lemon Bay with the Gulf of Mexico.

Many Englewood homes are in deed- and non-deed restricted areas. Many of them are on waterfront lots (canals, lakes or Lemon Bay) and wooded lots.  Some homes are on oversized lots with close proximity to the beaches, while the Dearborn area consists of older, smaller homes from the 50s or even earlier. However, if you are looking for a home with Gulf view, Englewood is not the right spot. Only Manasota Key is facing the Gulf of Mexico directly.   

A Town with a Big Heart

Everybody who loves boating, fishing, and the beach will find his perfect place. Englewood is an authentic historical fishing village with this typical small-town feel.
