Amberlea, Sarasota, Florida, 34233
It would be a wise decision to include Amberlea in a search for a permanent home from among the many choices in the Sarasota Florida real estate market. This community enjoys a great location near the southeast junction of McIntosh and Proctor roads. This area is also conveniently accessible to principal road corridors in southeast Sarasota—the Tamiami Trail west of the community, and Interstate 75 east of the neighborhood.
As remarkable, the subdivision was also exquisitely developed with seven interconnecting ponds that complement the verdant landscaping of the community. Accented by citrus trees and palm trees, these lagoons have excellent water quality and have become a natural habitat for fish, turtles, wild ducks, and wading birds that add to the charm of the Amberlea homes for sale. A professional water management outfit has been contracted by the neighborhood association for the proper maintenance of these mini-lakes.
The efficiency of the homeowners’ association and the residents’ commitment in managing the community also shows in the neighborhood’s professionally landscaped yards. Notably, through the initiative of the homeowners, the property was walled and gated in 2006 at a special assessment fee of $1,800 per residence, a collection that covered the entire project without the association incurring any debt.
Nearly all of the residences in the community were constructed by the highly regarded homebuilder Arthur Rutenberg. These homes are of concrete block construction featuring twelve-foot high ceilings, spacious and modern kitchens, and luxurious master suites. All the residences have private backyard pools and two- or three-car garages. Crown moldings, summer kitchens, dens and fireplaces also count among the features of many Amberlea homes.
There are a total of ninety-four residences in the community, seventy-six of which are in Amberlea I, the first phase of the neighborhood which was developed in the 1980s. Amberlea II, the second section, holds the rest of the homes which were constructed during the 1990s. The homes’ floor areas range from 2,350 square feet up to over 3,500 square feet. A three-bedroom residence in the community with a floor plan of about 3,400 square feet can be in the market with a tag price in the high $300s.
Given the strategic location of Amberlea, its residents are conveniently close to venues for life and leisure activities as well as excellent schools like Riverview High, Sarasota Middle School, and Ashton Elementary. For shopping, the choices include a nearby Publix Supermarket, the Beneva Village shops, and the Westfield Sarasota Square Mall. An active outdoor lifestyle can be pursued at such nearby parks as Twin Lakes, Red Bug Slough and Urfer Family Park. Only minutes away from the community too is the barrier island of Siesta Key where the pristine beaches have always been part of the come-ons of many Sarasota real estate properties.
