Located not far from the intersection between East Venice Avenue and Jacaranda Boulevard, Venice Acres is a large subdivision where every home site measures at least one acre. Some of the lots are as large as three acres and feature horse stables. Every property in this community has been built on spec or as a custom home, and the majority can be safely described as being luxurious.
Venice Acres is hardly the only Sarasota County neighborhood with oversize lots large enough for equestrian facilities; however, this community holds the distinction of being located to the west of I-75 and very close to the beaches of Venice and Nokomis. Privacy is guaranteed by the Blackburn Canal that flows into Blackburn Bay on the southern boundary of the neighborhood; plus, the entrances along North Auburn Road are very discreet and do not invite external traffic.
If you are looking for a country lifestyle that is close to the beach and to attractions such as the Historic Downtown District of Venice, you will definitely like this community. Your choice of custom-built homes include Mediterranean revival styles, Florida ranches, Key West homes, and American Craftsman designs. You tend to get a lot for your dollar in Venice Acres; for example, a $499K listing in September 2020 was for a three-bedroom home with two full bathrooms and 2,337 square feet of living space. This listing includes a covered swimming pool, mudroom, three-car garage, two utility sheds, mature fruit trees, and an architectural style that resembles homes in Sanibel Island.
There’s a nice feeling of seclusion in Venice Acres, but this neighborhood is not isolated by any means. The Jacaranda Commons shopping center, which is a short drive away, features a Publix supermarket and a CVS Pharmacy. Casual dining restaurants such as BrewBurgers and Cracker Barrel are also nearby; plus, you also have everything that Downtown Venice has to offer just ten minutes away.
