What Drives Sales at Cottages of Curry Creek?


SARASOTA, FLORIDA, July 21st, 2016 – Tivoli Homes has intensified marketing efforts for its newest community—the Cottages of Curry Creek in Nokomis—after its other property developments met success in the resurgent market for Sarasota homes for sale in recent years.

This Sarasota-based company is building upon the strong sales exhibited in The Cottages of Callista Village which it developed around 2005 in Longwood Run just off of University Parkway. Tivoli has already sold out its 21 cottage-style single family homes in this community. There is a recent resale posting here though—a two-bedroom home with a floor area of 1,930 square feet and an asking price in the high $200s.

What Drives Sales at Cottages of Curry Creek?

Pricing at The Cottages of Curry Creek starts at $469,900 as quoted for a pre-construction residence, one of two currently listed amongst Sarasota homes for sale. Designed with three bedrooms and two baths, this residence features a floor area of 1,843 square feet.

Tivoli has also put on the market its award-winning Curry Creek home model showcased in the Parade of Homes held early in 2016. This home has a floor plan measuring 2,265 square feet likewise designed with three bedrooms and two baths. It was adjudged “overall winner” in its category in the 2016 Parade of Homes and was also picked as “best curb appeal,” and tied in the award for “best kitchen” and “best floor plan.”

Mini-peninsula Layout

The Cottages of Curry Creek is planned as a gated community with just 12 home sites each platted at a minimum of 10,000 square feet in a peninsula-like parcel. Each lot is located either adjacent to Curry Creek or adjoining a canal. This layout allows homeowners the option to have private boat docks providing access to Roberts Bay and onwards to the Gulf of Mexico. Outdoor kitchens and swimming pools are added options for Curry Creek homes for sale.

The homes in this community are all designed as Key West style cottages with spacious front porches like those at the Callista Village. Similarly, the Curry Creek residences have semi-custom designs featuring fiber cement siding over concrete block, and their construction follow green home standards.

For durability and energy-efficiency, the residential construction at Tivoli’s Curry Creek community includes wind-resistant metal roofs, spray foam insulation, and impact-resistant hurricane glass windows and doors. High-efficiency air-conditioning systems and heat pump-style hot water heaters are added building features that make these homes eligible for Energy Star rating.

Combing for Options at The Hammocks

Tivoli Homes can also take credit for the recent build-out at The Hammocks, one of the most attractive search destinations for inland Sarasota homes for sale. This gated community is located east of I-75 at Bee Ridge Road as it bends southwards between the golf community of Heritage Oaks and the equally fascinating neighborhood of Misty Creek Preserve.

Sitting just east of another golf community, Laurel Oak Country Club, The Hammocks was developed starting in the early 2000s. Full development of its 194 home sites was stalled by the Great Recession, but Tivoli resumed building here in 2010. Resale homes are currently priced between the $200s and the $900s, featuring floor areas ranging from about 1,550 square feet up to approximately 5,650 square feet.

Recent turnover of Hammock properties is relatively brisk, reflecting the upbeat market interest on Sarasota homes for sale. During the last six months, seven sales were recorded in this community. One of these was a build by Tivoli Homes which had a tag price edging towards the $600s, featuring three bedrooms and three baths within a floor area of close to 2,800 square feet.
