Harborside El Jobean: New Waterfront Community in Port Charlotte


SARASOTA, FLORIDA, May 4th, 2017 – Selling has stepped up at the new waterfront development of Harborside El Jobean Beach & Yacht Club in Port Charlotte, a move well in synch with the recent surge in the fortunes of Charlotte homes for sale.

Early this April, the sales center for this development was opened at 14550 River Beach Drive located right within the property occupying an eastern slice of the historic coastal El Jobean area. The sales center’s opening appears well timed as home sales in Charlotte County reported for March showed a 24.2 percent gain for single family homes and a 6.1 percent increase for condos.

Home price appreciation in Charlotte for the month was robust as well. March median sales prices for single family homes in the county rose 7.7 percent to $210,000, while condo prices advanced 3.3 percent to $159,000.

Pricing of the sales-listed new homes under construction at Harborside El Jobean start around the mid-$300s, featuring three bedrooms, two baths, a half-bath within a floor plan of close to 1,500 square feet.

First in a Decade

Harborside El Jobean: New Waterfront Community in Port Charlotte

This condominium complex is planned for 41 condominium units and eight attached villas. Harborside El Jobean comes as the newest development of its type in Charlotte County in nearly a decade. Its Phase 1, scheduled for an April 2017 start, is expected to be completed by early 2018.

The design and architecture of the Harborside El Jobean buildings convey a coastal elegance capitalizing on the property’s location off the north banks of the Myakka River County.

Its residences bear the nautical “Key West” look and feel, and provide choices in three design concepts: contemporary, transitional and coastal. The most luxurious materials available have been employed in developing each of these designs.

These elements include quartz countertops, porcelain tiles, and high-end faucets and fixtures. Many value-added features have also been incorporated into the Harborside El Jobean homes for sale, such as smart-home technology, impact-resistant windows, and door-to-door elevators in the condos.

The amenities planned for this property include a community center, swimming pool, fitness center, and a 485-foot pier with boat slips which will be sold separately from the residences. The property, which sits just east of County Road 776, provides not only panoramic views of the Myakka River but also offers picturesque vistas of Charlotte Harbor and its surrounding nature preserve areas.


The recent sales push in this new development should also help bring market attention to rarely available existing residences at El Jobean. Sales-listed here too just this April is a three-bedroom single family home with a floor area of about 2,200 square feet priced in the high $200s. Built in the early 1990s, this home is a waterfront residence which had recent upgrades of its roof, windows and air-conditioning.

Another pre-owned residence a short distance west of the Harborside El Jobean is currently on the MLS of Charlotte homes for sale. Also a waterfront single family home, this residence is priced in the upper $300s and features a floor plan of nearly 2,300 square feet designed with three bedrooms and three baths.

These existing homes and Harborside El Jobean all have a superb location. Local residents are just 15 minutes away from Englewood Beach and the commercial center of Boca Grande. County Road 776 and its bridge just nearby enable convenient trips north to Sarasota/Bradenton and south to Ft. Myers/Naples, another plus for homes for sale at El Jobean.
