Westlake Estates Homes for Sale – Sarasota, Florida 34231

Westlake Estates Homes for Sale

Westlake Estates is a suburban community of Sarasota located on the northern edge of Gulf Gate Estates. It is tucked west of South Beneva Road where it is accessible via Fox Run Road that loops around the community’s western section. The nature park Red Bug Slough Preserve is adjacent of Westlake Estates’ northern border, a quaint attraction for many Sarasota homes for sale in and around Gulf Gate.

Like many of the residential neighborhoods in this part of Sarasota, the acreage of Westlake Estates was a former orange grove. Some of the fruit trees still remain as well as the Australian Pines planted as wind buffer and frost protection of the groves in winter months. These grove remnants hence now provide a refreshing environment for Westlake Estates homes for sale.

Peaceful Neighborhood

Westlake Estates Homes for Sale

Westlake is a quiet place to live, with no through traffic in this neighborhood, with the Fox Run Road walled off from its former link north to Ashton Road. Many of the community’s home sites were also platted off cul-de-sacs carved off Fox Run Road and Creeping Hammock Drive, the only other internal street in Westlake Estates.

The subdivisions adjacent west of the community—Eagle Chase, Ashley Oaks, and Gulf Gate Glen — are small and are as laid-back as Westlake Estates. This thus creates an overall peaceful environment in the locality, especially since a small retirement community flanks Westlake Estates to the east.

Westlake Estates was developed starting in 1978, with many of its residences completed during the 1980s. The lots in Westlake Estates are large and are spacious enough for many of its homes to accommodate a backyard swimming pool. There are 73 homes in this community which is covered by certain deed restrictions that help preserve the values of the properties.

There are no recreational amenities in this community, but it has an easement for direct access north to the Red Bug Slough Preserve. A pristine example of natural Florida with its pine flat woods and hammocks, this nature park provides a playground, picnic shelters, hiking trails, and a fishing pier.

Westlake Estates is located close to Sarasota’s vital road corridors, such as Interstate 75, Clark Road, and Proctor Roads. This puts the community’s residents just minutes away from the local amenities including not only life and leisure facilities but also schools and healthcare centers that add value to buyers of Sarasota homes for sale.
