Manasota Key

Manasota Key - a little "Old Florida"

Manasota Key is a barrier island located off the shores of Englewood. Known for its laid back attitude, or “Old Florida Charm, there are multi-million homes on the key, hidden behind lush, tropical landscaping. Some of the mansions have both beach access as well as access to the Intracoastal Waterway. You won’t see too often manicured gardens, as you see on Casey Key or Lido Key. About half of Manasota Key is located in Charlotte County and has more action, with a few low-rise condos, waterfront restaurants, Tiki Bars with live music and small shops.


Natural Beauty and Seclusion

Manasota Key is a place for people who love natural beauty and seclusion. By following the main canopy road, which runs along the center of the island from north to south, you will see what we mean. Compared to Casey Key or Siesta Key, this is a low- key affair. Just a few elegant homes, but also regular Key-West Style Homes, Condos, and historic homes. 


The Characteristics of Manasota Key

The northern and central parts of the island, located in Sarasota County, are exclusively residential. There is no commercial activity permitted. No restaurants, no shops, and no stores. The southern section of the island, which belongs to Charlotte County, is  different. There are some commercial activities. Quite a few low-rise condos, apartments, restaurants, bars, and small shops, like boat and jet ski rentals, are lined up along the beach. However, none of the activities distracts from the beauty of the island. All the action appears to be in total harmony with the rest of the island.


The Beaches

Although Manasota Key is a popular tourist destination with its four beaches, residents are still able to enjoy an undisturbed way of life. As a result, the island is not nearly as touristy as its cousins, Siesta Key or Anna Maria Island, further north. 

Manasota Key Real Estate

Manasota Key real estate is a mixture of old Florida charm and new-age elegance. Most of the luxury estates on big lots are on the north end of the island. The further you go south, the “smaller” the homes and lots get. On the south end, where Englewood beach is located, there is a mixture of old fashioned beach cottages, newer condominiums, a few small resorts, manufactured homes, and businesses. At the very south is the Stump Pass Beach State Park. 

From Multi-Million to Reasonably Priced

Homes for sale on Manasota Key are ranging from multi-million dollar estates to more reasonably priced single-family homes. However, Manasota Key is an island, and home prices on islands are always higher. 

Manasota Key building lots are slowly disappearing, because builders are snapping them up right now, but you might still find that perfect waterfront lot on which to build your Manasota Key dream home. Whether you are looking for a beautifully landscaped mansion in a gated community or a simple beach community cabana, Manasota Key offers you many opportunities.
