Sold History and Market Report

Overbrook Gardens Homes for Sale – Englewood, Florida 34223

Overbrook Gardens Homes for Sale

Overbrook Gardens is a well-established community in Englewood located west of State Road 776. Its acreage is traversed by the meandering branches of the nine-mile Forked Creek that empties into Lemon Bay in south Sarasota County.

This creekside character served as a sound framework in the development of this community starting from the 1960s. It provided a boating lifestyle now central to Overbrook Gardens’ appeal to buyers of Englewood homes for sale.

Water Access to All Homes

Overbrook Gardens Homes for Sale

Many of the lots of Overbrook Gardens for sale are platted along the community’s network of waterways and a lake. The home sites off the water nestle amidst lush landscaping and open spaces. This community was also developed with two neighborhood parks and a boat ramp which is accessible for a small annual fee to residents of the non-waterfront dwellings.

The values of homes for sale in Overbrook Gardens likewise draw market strength from the community’s well-run homeowners’ association whose activities extend beyond planning social events. It is also involved in strengthening the community’s privacy and security. Through the association’s efforts, for instance, a new wall made of reinforced concrete was completed in 2016 replacing the unsightly plank fence along the community’s SR 776 frontage.
