River Strand Real Estate: Jurassic Park Way?

Posted by Robert Casella on Friday, February 13th, 2015 at 2:35pm.

River Strand is still one of the most popular destinations for golf enthusiasts seeking affordable luxury in the greater Sarasota area. Perhaps even more remarkable is that homes for sale in River Strand at the Sanctuary--those homes sold WITHOUT a golf membership--continue to sell at a healthy rate. In the eyes of prospective purchasers, simply living in a golf course community holds tremendous value. Of course, River Strand is not just about golf. There are many reasons people buy in River Strand, including the tennis facilities, active social lifestyle, and the miles of walking and jogging trails.

Speaking of walking and jogging trails, I love to tell people about the wooden bridge that cuts through the undisturbed tropical woodlands in the Enclave section of River Strand. For those of you unfamiliar with River Strand, the Enclave is perhaps one of the most popular destinations in the community, with homes starting in the mid 200's. So, back to the bridge. I have affectionately named this bridge "Jurassic Park Way" because it is like walking through, well, Jurassic Park! At the end of your meandering stroll, you will enter Waterlefe. So, if you are looking for a little variety in your walks, you can saunter through that community and check out the views of the Manatee River.

Come see why River Strand Real Estate is on the move...and take a stroll down Jurassic Park way while you are at it!
