Miles of beautiful sandy beaches, shimmering blue-green salt water, and the pursuit of a well-rested mind are what draw locals, as well as visitors from all over the world, to explore what Englewood offers. Englewood boasts a smaller population of just under 15,000, and has many quaint little shops and restaurants to sample what comes from our local Charlotte Harbor waters, as well as the Gulf of Mexico. Many an artist come for inspiration to create that beautiful piece that goes on display at our local art galleries, as well as authors and movie writers looking for a topic and backdrop for their next book or film. Englewood made the list in 2012 as one of the top picks for Best Places to Retire in the country by Where to Retire magazine. Being located along the SW Florida coastline, Englewood is in short driving distance of Venice Beach to the north, as well as Boca Grande to the south, which is popular for world class tarpon fishing in the Boca Grande Pass. The area draws the famous likes of our former Presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush for regular vacation getaways with their family, pop singer from the 1960s and 70s Bobby Vinton, as well as 1970s disco-era singer Donna Summer, who was a resident of Manasota Key. You will find homes in Englewood to be anywhere from modest and quaint cottage size all the way up to very spacious and luxurious million and multi-million dollar mansions that are along the Gulf of Mexico. There’s something for everyone! You can start your own search above, or contact me and I’ll be happy to put one together for you.
