Hidden River in Sarasota is one of the most fascinating neighborhoods of Southwest Florida, a place that attracts lovers of nature, aviation and the equestrian arts. Located about 15 miles east of I-75 and just north of the pristine Myakka River State Park, Hidden River is a fascinating real estate gem where residents keep horses, airplanes and vast vegetable gardens.
Originally platted in the late 1960s, Hidden River initially attracted homeowners with an intrepid streak about them; some of them wanted to build barns, stables and riding trails, others wanted plenty of square footage plus a safe runway to land on, and a third subset were simply attracted by the idea of living right next to Myakka River State Park. For a community located just 30 minutes away from Downtown Sarasota, the prices at Hidden River are extremely reasonable. A two-bedroom Florida ranch sitting on more than six acres of land was priced at just $350K in 2019. A 10-acre lot ready for construction was listed for less than $100K.
The runway of the Hidden River Airpark, which is identified by the FAA as 22FA, is on the northern end of the neighborhood, and it does not disturb neighbors or the abundant wildlife. All homes enjoy lots of privacy thanks to a network of private roads nestled within nature preserves. Some lots have their own ponds or freshwater creeks. This is not a cookie-cutter neighborhood; all homes are custom-built, and the architectural styles range from Old Florida to Key West Homes and from Mediterranean to Southern Plantation. Real estate activity is brisk, and you never know what surprising listing may become available.
Moving into Hidden River means living in the countryside while still being just 20 minutes away from the Bee Ridge Plaza shopping center, where you can find suburban comforts such as a Publix supermarket, restaurants and cafes. The beaches of Siesta Key are less than an hour away, close enough to visit every weekend.
