Harbor Hills Homes for Sale – Bradenton, Florida 34209

Harbor Hills Homes for Sale

Harbor Hills is a unique community in West Bradenton, with about three-fourths of it acreage on a peninsula spreading on Warner East Bayou immediately south of Riverview Boulevard. Its site, which lies close to the southern banks of the Manatee River, is host to an eclectic mix of high-end waterfront homes and mid-priced residences on inland lots, which truly enrich the selection of Bradenton homes for sale.

As its name suggests, Harbor Hills occupies an elevated area, and even as it is near the Manatee River and a bayou surrounds much of it, thus the community lies outside of a flood zone. Hence, its homeowners need not pay any flood insurance fee.

The main entrance of the community, Harbor Road, is accessible from Riverview Boulevard via a small bridge across the bayou. This boulevard notably stretches eastwards all the way to the downtown Bradenton area and its varied attractions.

Park-like Character

Harbor Hills Homes for Sale

A park-like setting defines the character of Harbor Hills, starting from the quaint landscaping of the triangular street island with a signpost displaying the name of community at its Harbor Road entrance. Luxuriant tropical greenery flanks this road as it tracks the entire southern perimeter of the Harbor Hills where the scenery adds even more shrubbery, oaks, and palm trees. A side trip to one of the community’s internal street, Fontana Lane, comes out as most refreshing with canopies of banyan trees along this stretch.

Those searching for waterfront Bradenton homes for sale can check out Hillcrest Drive in Harbor Hills. This street hooks around the outer stretch of the community where all home sites either back up or front the bayou. Those lots fronting the water have their boat slips and fishing docks across Hillcrest Drive. Most of the residences on Hillcrest Drive though have these facilities at their back. But in any case, residents of Harbor Hills can walk and bike at the nearby waterfront where sightings of manatees coming in from the river are common.
