Hands down, Country Club Shores can stand out as a leading candidate amongst diverse buying opportunities in the waterfront communities on Longboat Key. This property is quite distinctive, having been developed with about 20 dredged canals reaching out perpendicular to Sarasota Bay, in turn creating home lots nearly all having direct water access.

Its extensive acreage is another distinguishing feature for this community. Its site stretches some 1.5 miles along Gulf of Mexico Drive, starting south from the Bay Harbour condos and extending north up to the Water Club condominium. From another viewpoint, checking out all of homes for sale in Country Club Shores would be very much like touring almost the entire front nine holes of the championship golf links of The Resort at Longboat Key Club just across the street west of this community.

North and South Options

Country Club Shores

Country Club Shores’ development started in the early 1960s, subsequently moving along in five phases. Generally though, this community can be simply divided into a north and south section. Most of the latter’s street conveniently link directly to Gulf of Mexico Drive and have names derived from boating terms, such as Gunwale, Outrigger and Spinnaker.

The streets of the community’s northern section, on the other hand, are mostly associative of golf, with names like Birdie, Putting Green and Bogey. These are not directly accessible from Gulf of Mexico Drive, but great for seclusion and privacy, access into this northern Country Club Shores neighborhood is via three entrances along Gulf of Mexico Drive.

The finger-like land parcels created by the Country Club Shores’ canals each hosts from about six up to more than two dozen residences. Combined, these constitute one of the largest collections of single-family homes for sale in Longboat Key. Predominantly, their architectural style is of the “old Florida” design, but many of the older residences have been either restored or replaced.
