The majority of the homes in this area are of stucco and tabby exterior. We have some brick sided homes and some homes with hardy-boards siding. Depending on the area, the home may need to be built up to be above the flood zone. In these cases, the homes usually have a garage and additional storage on the ground floor and then have one or two floors above the ground level for living space and bedrooms. Homes in your price range will often come with elevators or be in a golf club community or close to the beach/Village. There is a bike/jogging path that runs the length of the island and goes through several of the streets near the beach as well. Since the island is about 12 miles long, you can go for quite a ride without having to turn around. Send me your email address and I will send you a sampling of what is currently available for sale in your price range.
