Longbeach Village is a charming and laid-back "vintage" island community sitting at the northeast tip of Longboat Key.
If you're looking over luxury real estate in southwest Florida, and at waterfront homes in particular, you may be finding a number of great luxury homes, but they're not where you'd like them to be. If you're old-fashioned and perhaps a bit romantic, and somehow Florida's new master-planned developments just aren't right for you, maybe you're looking for a more established community, something that combines all the delightful benefits of gracious, Florida waterfront living with community pride and an historical heritage reaching back to 1885. Longbeach Village is that spot. In fact, Longbeach Village has been established as an official "Historic District" by the state of Florida. It wasn't officially annexed by the city of Longboat Key until 1955, and some of that independent community spirit remains there today.
An Interesting Place to Call Home
No one knows where the "Village Peacocks" came from, but they roam near the low-key "community hub" at Broadway Street. Whitney Beach is a mostly unknown and unpopulated quarter-mile of beach and sea oats, non-commercial and lacking in amenities (except for some limited free parking on Broadway), but it's perfect for a secluded, romantic stroll at sunset or in the dreamy Florida moonlight. Longbeach Village is also the home of several classic Florida waterfront restaurants serving up delightful, mouth-watering seafood masterpieces.
Boaters and fishing buffs love Longbeach Village. Most of the homes sit on canals or face beautiful Sarasota Bay, but every home has a spectacular waterfront view. Of course, the Longboat Key setting puts Longbeach Village near Sarasota, Bradenton, and several other beautiful barrier islands including famous St. Armand's Key and acclaimed Siesta Key. Longbeach Village is a long-established community, so you'll find homes in several sizes and design styles, from the classic Florida ranch-style to more dynamic, contemporary looks. These homes can sell in several price ranges, too, so if you're looking for old-style, romantic Florida charm, Longbeach Village may be the upscale, laid-back island community for you.
