I would suggest you spend some time looking around this area and particularly around the home you would consider buying. From my experience you could be looking at a very nice house, but it could be situated next to/ between other not too nice properties. You can always change things about your own home, but you cannot change what your neighbours do with your homes and yards - especially in non deed restricted areas. (from non agent)

Luigi, I've been a resident of South Venice since 1988 and a builder of some 80 homes here since 1985. it has a laid back atmosphere, which some people call non-deed restricted but it's friendly. Our soils are generally 6' of white sand, tough for yards but no problems for septic systems. Almost all homes have a good quality water softening system that may cost $15 a month or less to have maintained. So you save $70 to $80 bucks a month on a water/sewer bill. It's minutes to the "Island", shopping and affordable.

There is a voluntary community association that publishes a monthy newsletter, but it's key draw is the South Venice Ferry that takes members out to a deeded stretch of beach on Manasota Key daily (except Wednesdays) as well as private boat launch.

Search "South Venice Beach" Check out my website and welcome to the neighborhood.

South Venice has some very attractive home prices at this time and many buyers are taking advantage of these opportunities. This is a location that is convenient to either the Venice beaches or Manasota beaches and handy to all area amenities.

This communty is is blend of newer construction and older homes dating to the 1960's with no home owner's manditory association. Many people find this aspect appealing because they can store their boats or RV's without problems.

A commonly accepted drawback to living in South Venice is the fact that these homes are on well and septic. which some people don't want to deal with.

We would be happy to provide additional information at your request.

Best regards,

Many find the South Venice area very attractive. It all depends on your personal needs in a Home and what kinds of Ammenities you need and want close by. The neighborhoods in the South Venice area are mostly all Single Family Homes. Most of these neighborhoods have no deed restrictions and the South Venice area offers easy access to Manasota Key and its Beaches and to the the East there are a few Golf Courses to join. Again, it would all depend on what some of your needs are.
