Cottages at Blu Vista Homes for Sale

Cottages at Blu Vista is a charming community which was developed starting around 2008. It occupies a parcel of nearly 40 acres that was formerly a vegetable farm along 36th Street East near the county boundary of Manatee and Sarasota. Homes for sale in this locality just north of University Parkway often bear a Sarasota County address but are under the jurisdiction of Manatee County.

A Bradenton-based builder, Rinehart Homes, is behind the development of the Cottages at Blu Vista. Other notable homebuilding projects where Rinehart has been involved in include the Cottages of San Casciano/San Lorenzo in Bradenton. It is also one of the designated builders at Secluded Oaks in eastern Sarasota.

Quaint Water Features

Reinhart Homes platted the Cottages at Blu Vista for 114 home sites. Several stormwater detention ponds were incorporated into the property with the larger ones coming out as scenic water features on the western border of the community.

A county-maintained stormwater management system, the Pearce Canal, stretches west of the largest of the stormwater detention ponds in the Cottages at Blu Vista. Significantly, this community is in a Special Flood Zone for which lenders do not require flood insurance.

Cottages at Blu Vista appeals to many, as Reinhart developed it with a community playground featuring a basketball court, picnic tables and benches. There is a separate common open area with tables and benches plus a gazebo overlooking one of the property’s lake/stormwater retention ponds.

The internal streets have been laid out to a complete loop with a road bisecting it. Coupled with these street’s wide sidewalks, this setup thereby encourages strolls within the community and foster social interactions amongst the residents.

The community’s amiable atmosphere further shows in its impressive landscaping. Providing an immediate sampling are the trees, greeneries, and tropical palms that adorn the median island on the avenue leading into the property.
