Longboat Key Florida
Located halfway in Sarasota County and halfway in Manatee County, the 11-mile long barrier island of Longboat Key truly offers the best of two worlds to its residents. Situated in both the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, Longboat Key is characterized by beautiful beaches while still offering its residents the privacy and security they desire.
Connected to St. Armands Key to the south, residents enjoy easy access to Sarasota and all of the dining, shopping, cultural and nightlife opportunities downtown Sarasota and St. Armands Circle have to offer. At the same time, the island is connected by bridge to Anna Maria Island to the north. As such, residents of Longboat Key can easy enjoy the beaches found on the island as well as many of the best beaches Florida has to offer. From the secluded Mayfield Street Beach to the spacious Beer Can Island, which offers 2,000 feet of primitive sandy beach, Longboat Key is rich in beauty and opportunities for fun in the sun.
For those who are interested in calling Longboat Key home, there are plenty of options available. For those who are on a tight budget, trailers offering deeded beach access can be found for as little as $120,000. Those who are looking for something more upscale, on the other hand, may choose to purchase a waterfront home or an upscale condo. While waterfront homes typically range in price from $500,000 to more than $20 million, luxury condos are available in prices ranging from $450,000 to more than $7,000,000.
