Longbeach Village

Consider Longbeach if you’re searching for Sarasota real estate for sale in neighborhoods which retain much of the original charm of Old Florida.

Locals also often refer to it as Longboat Village or simply the Village whose establishment traces back to the 1800s.

Here, prospective buyers of Longboat Key homes for sale can find choices from among historic residences built during the 1930s. Purchase options on houses constructed in the 1960s up to the 1990s can be in the market as well. The prized finds in the Village for well-heeled buyers are beachfront properties with commanding views of Sarasota Bay, Longboat Pass, or the Gulf of Mexico.

Land and sea come-ons

Longbeach Village

In addition to their waterfront appeal and historic charm, Longboat Key homes for sale at Longbeach Village draw market attention because of the various local amenities available. The village, for one, is home to the Longboat Key Art Center and Design, founded by circus magnate John Ringling in 1931. Another important local facility is the Whitney Beach shopping plaza, located just south of the Village, which completed a $2-million makeover in 2014. The community is likewise host to two popular Longboat Key dining venues—Moore’s Stone Crab Restaurant and Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub.

Boat facilities, such as those at the Mar Vista dock, are also mainstay establishments around Longbeach. Kayak rentals and boat charter services abound in the Village as well, making leisure trips easy to nearby destinations like the popular fishing grounds of Bishops Bayou.

Also nearby is the sandbar fronting Jewfish Key, which has grown popular among boaters. Jewfish, for its part, is a private island just east of the Village opposite Longboat Pass and noted for its quiet beaches and nature preserves serving as habitat for ospreys, great horned owls and wild parrots.

Price points for historic homes
