Mr. Wallace,

The property you inquired about is on Shamrock, which is in a boating community in south Venice. For an optional $150 a year you can take a ferry across the intercoastal to a private beach. And access a boat ramp located on the intercoastal with no bridge access to the gulf. There is also a very nice park to enjoy a picnic or nature walk.

Venice lies along the Gulf of Mexico, with the historical downtown area on an island where one can shop, dine, and visit The Venice Theater of fine performing arts.

If you like the beach, I feel we have the best beaches in Sarasota Co! We have (within 5 miles) Venice Beach, directly at the end of historical downtown Venice. Brohard, where Shark'y on the pier is located. Brohard Paw (the only pet friendly beach in Sarasota Co.), Caspersen, Nokomis Beach (on Casey Key). Then just a short drive to Englewood or Sarasota for more beach fun!

Now if you happen to be a golfer, Venice offers: Pelican Point, The Meadows Course and Country Club (18 holes), Lake Venice (public), The Plantation (Bobcat and Panther courses), Capri Isles, Bird Bay, Venetian, Myakka Pines, Sorrento, Oyster Creek, Heron, The Oaks Club (Eagle Course), and many more.

As you can see Robert, I love Venice. It is my home. I have over 20 years of experience as a real estate broker to help you with your real estate needs, so don't hesitate to call me. Have a wonderful day!

Within the city of Venice you will find a variety of styles of living. There are condos, townhomes, older homes, gated communities, golf course communities, mobile home parks, 55+ communities, and more. There are currently 1008 homes for sale ranging in price from $35k to over $1 million.

Venice has a fishing pier at Brohard Park where there is a pier, picnic shelters, sand volleyball courts, public restrooms, a pavilion, beach and restaurant. There are also the Jetty’s where you can go fishing or watch the dolphins. The Venice Beach has parking, food concession, shelter, two sand volleyball courts, a picnic area and boardwalks. Venice is known as the shark tooth capital of the world. You can collect shark teeth at the beach along with seashells.

Venetian Waterway Park has an 8 foot wide trail for walkers, joggers, and bikers. There are benches, litter receptacles, dog clean up stations, picnic shelters, and grills. You can get Intracoastal Waterway views and glimpses of wildlife along the trails. No motor vehicles are allowed.

Centennial Park is located downtown Venice. You can walk Venice Main Street where there are boutique shops, salons, cafes, and restaurants. The park has a gazebo, parking lot, picnic tables, benches, restrooms, and memorial to Veterans, information kiosk and an interactive fountain. This area often holds special events such as holiday gatherings, craft fairs, car shows, parades, and more.
There is also the Venice Farmer’s Market every Saturday from 8 to noon.

For more information on Venice you can go to the city web site: Things to do: boating, fishing, shellling, shark teeth collecting, kayaking, canoeing, walking, golfing, tennis, festivals and fairs, dining, shopping, beaches, and bird watching. There is no large mall in Venice for shopping. You would have to go to Port Charlotte or Sarasota for a mall.

The traffic gets very heavy in Venice during snowbird season. There are long waits at traffic lights as well as restaurants. The average age is 68. I would recommend that your friend come down for a visit. That would give an opportunity to check out Venice and the surrounding areas to see if it is somewhere he/she would want to live. It really is a beautiful area with plenty of activities to do within a short drive. And of course, the weather can’t be beat.

This is an area just a walk or short bike ride to Shanrock Park and the Venetian Waterway Trail (paved path along the waterway that connects to the Legacy Trail allowing you to ride from Casperson Beach State Park on the south end of Venice Island, all the way to south Sarasota).

Easy access to all that Venice has to offer. South Venice has an optional association that gives you access to a boat launch and a ferry to the beach across the intracoastal waterway.

Check out our Facebook page for more information on the market and fun things to do in Southwest Florida.

I also have a few blogs on my Trulia profile that may be of use to you when considering values on homes. That information is pertinent all across the country.

All the Best,

Sandals Realty
