In Southwest Florida, waterfront properties are part of a real estate niche that seems to be above the gyrations of the housing market economy; for this reason, the luxurious homes at Harbor Acres in Sarasota have consistently enjoyed solid value appreciation even when the market has gone through a downturn.
The history of Harbor Acres dates back to the development of Sarasota as a vacation haven in the 1920s. This neighborhood, which is arranged on two peninsulas overlooking the Sarasota Bay, was initially envisioned as a place for home buyers to build seasonal waterfront properties; over the decades, the real estate in Harbor Acres became more and more opulent until it became one of the most upscale communities in Florida.
Harbor Acres is for prospective buyers who are interested in acquiring stunning waterfront property designed by award-winning home builders. This is a neighborhood where you can find a handsome Mediterranean estate with private docks next to an even prettier Key West home or a Spanish Colonial masterpiece of residential architecture. This neighborhood is for homeowners who want jaw-dropping properties with maximum curb appeal.
Demand for Harbor Acres homes is always very high because owners are known to hold on to their properties for long. In 2018, $658K would get you a three-bedroom Florida ranch-style home with two bathrooms, an enclosed swimming pool and designer kitchen with sweeping views of the Sarasota Bay. If you are looking for something truly spectacular, a custom-built mansion with four bedrooms and four bathrooms built on three levels with more than 4,300 square feet of interior, you are looking at a price range of $3.79 million; we are talking about a mansion with private docking, a fishing pier, a waterside swimming pools, and some of the best waterfront views in the Sunshine State.
