Developed in the early 1960s, Country Club Shores is a classic waterfront community and one of the most sought-after locations on Longboat Key. Developed in five phases encompassing approximately 400 homes, CCS is one of a very few single-family neighborhoods on this prestigious barrier island.
This is a great location to dock your boat literally in the backyard due to its deep-water canals opening to a shimmering expanse of Sarasota Bay, and call this vintage neighborhood home. “Old Florida” best describes the architectural style in Country Club where most homes are on canals with private docks and davits. With the dazzling Sarasota Skyline as a guide, many of the homes have either been completely rebuilt or remodeled to take better advantage of the Bay Views. Residents have Deeded beach access with St. Armand’s Circle and Downtown Sarasota shopping and dining nearby. The homeowners' association oversees the distinctive common areas as well as a variety of social events.
With 19 street names like Birdie Lane, Putting Green Lane, Cutter Lane and Yawl, one can only surmise that this IS an avid Golf and Sailing Community built around the Greens and the Blues! That is, the golf course and the bay… naturally! Located on the Bayside of Longboat, most homes are sited along one of the many canals enjoying a water view at every turn. Those closest to Gulf of Mexico Drive can look westward across the Longboat Key Club’s smooth grassy Fairways towards the Gulf itself!
Sailing the Gulf Swinging for the Green
On one side you can wake up to the shimmering light dancing across the bay, up the seawall and onto your patio. On the other side, you can enjoy a miraculous sight daily, the bursting flash of green in a blazing Florida Sunset!
Country Club Shores… Call us to visit this little secret on Longboat Key and discover WHY it’s such a special place to live!
