Center Gate, a beautiful place to live!

The Master Association has 199 single family homes and 442 villa style condominiums. Construction began in 1978 and continued through 1984. There are several ingresses/egresses to the Community: Center Gate Boulevard winds curvaceously between Bee Ridge and Proctor Roads. Wilkinson Road bisects the Community between Honore Avenue and Cattlemen Road.  These two arteries provide an ease of access to 3 major and 1 minor road yet Center Gate doesn’t see typical Drive-Through traffic especially because of the curving, winding nature of the roads.


With origins in the late 70s through mid 80s, CenterGate was developed by First Communities of Sarasota who were also instrumental in developing the Master Neighborhoods of South Gate, Gulf Gate and Forest Lakes subdivisions. Urfer Family Park is on Honore Avenue just west of the neighborhood, golf courses Laurel Oak and Bent  Tree are just east of the interstate with Siesta Beach off the coast minutes away. Major Employers Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Publix and Doctors Hospital ring the Bee Ridge / Cattlemen Business Corridor with a large variety of restaurants and retail to support the growing communities both east and west of I-75.


Center Gate Estates caters to a 55 community with a common pool and maintenance-free landscaping. Most Villa Residents are retirees, empty-nesters or snowbirds but there are younger professionals and young families so the mix of residents makes a healthy and very pleasant neighborhood.
