Listings For SaleSold History and Market Report

Southwood, Venice, Florida

Southwood

Southwood sure is a pretty common name among property developments but the one in Venice Florida is by no means just an ordinary option in the Venice real estate market. The residences in this community are in the beautiful Mediterranean architecture that perfectly complements the dominant southern Italian Renaissance style in the city, contributing immensely to Venice’s reputation as one of the best places to retire in the U.S.

The homes for sale in Southwood are tucked in a lush natural setting near US 41 (Tamiami Trail). The community is maintenance-free with the upkeep of the neighborhood’s common areas, the lawns, and landscaping covered by a reasonable homeowners association fee. Lakes and ponds were integrated into the development of this property, providing excellent views at the residences.

The shade trees in the enclave have already matured, reinforcing the community’s well-established image. The residential amenities include a heated swimming pool, cable TV, and pest control. A gated community, Southwood further enhances safety and security in its well-lit and pedestrian-friendly streets many of which were charmingly named after trees like Southern Pine, Peppertree, and Orangetree.

Southwood homes for sale can be attractively priced at levels in the low $100s. These sales-listed residences typically have floor plans measuring 1,164 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths. The asking price can hit the low $400s for more spacious options with floor spaces of close to 2,600 square feet, featuring four bedrooms and four baths.

The community’s strategic location near the Tamiami enables Southwood residents quick and convenient access to the quaint attractions of Venice. Golf can easily be enjoyed at nearby links like those at the Boca Royale, Jacaranda West, and the Plantation which also has superb facilities for tennis and dining.
