Myakka River

Community with 55 miles of navigable canals flowing together to an Interceptor Lagoon which leads to the Myakka River. From here the residents with boats have access to the Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico.

There are about 15,000 deed-restricted home sites of which 4,700 are waterfront. The canals are wide but with variable depth. Some flow under bridges with 10 feet of clearance’ some have less.  A good number of property owners enjoy sailboat access with no bridges at all to the bay.

All lots are connected to central water and sewer. Sweet! You don’t have to mess around with well equipment and septic tanks. That is already another big plus.

New Home in South Gulf Cove

South Gulf Cove is still a hidden gem. There are still many lots available, and many of them are canal front properties.

You will notice that new homes are popping up like mushrooms after a warm summer rain, and anytime soon the best building lots will be gone. There are still many lots left, but you know how that works: many of them will only be second best.

As the area has been more developed, retail shopping followed and is now just minutes away. Waterfront Restaurants, the Pioneer Bike Trail, parks and boat/kayak launches are nearby. The white sandy beaches of Boca Grande and Englewood are also nearby.

Golfers have access to 4 golf courses: Long Marsh, Palms, Oakland Hills and Cape Haze. Because the area is growing, Gasparilla Road is under construction and will soon become a four lane highway, with easy access to get in and out of the community. Sidewalks are being built so you can walk and bike safely for miles and miles.

For all those who would like to build a brand new home, without being in a gated community, this is a tremendous opportunity. There are quite a few reputable builders who build beautiful homes. Either they or you choose the lot, and 6-8 months later you move in. You have to choice! You can be on a saltwater canal or on sailboat water. If you don’t need/want to be on the water, or if you are on a tight budget,  you can still buy a lot for way under $20,000, and be happy.
