Country Club Shores - Longboat Key

 

A meticulously landscaped, naturally beautiful, and plush barrier island stretching alongside both Sarasota and Manatee counties, Longboat Key is a popular destination on Florida’s gorgeous Gulf Coast for visitors and residents alike.

Country Club Shores is one of the neighborhoods that truly define Longboat Key. With homes built almost entirely on spacious canals or desirable Sarasota Bay, Country Club Shores epitomizes what the good life in Florida is all about—sun, swimming, boating and golf. It’s chic, casual and convenient.

The homes in Country Club Shores fall into two categories. The original residences, mostly one-story Florida ranches, have been updated over the years and now combine the best of the old and new. The scale is more intimate, but the details and appointments are up-to-date and luxurious. The newer homes spare no expense. They are large and lavish, and those on prime parcels of land are priced well into the millions.

Boating is king in Country Club Shores. With practically every home on the water, residents can sail from their backyards to the open waters of Sarasota Bay and out to the Gulf of Mexico. But golfers are also catered to. The championship courses of the Longboat Key Club are a short stroll away, as are world-class tennis courts, social activities, a marina and the glorious white sand beaches that have made the Key Club a world-famous resort.

Country Club Shores is located at the southern end of Longboat, just a short drive or bike ride to the attractions of St Armands Circle. Here you’ll experience fine dining and shopping. Continue a little further to downtown Sarasota, where all the amenities of a sophisticated resort mingle with a lively arts scene; and you’ll find live theater, ballet, opera, and one of the greatest art museums in the country.

Prices range from $749,900 to over $5 million.
