The Ellenton housing market of Manatee County is perfect for home shoppers and real estate investors who have a bit of pioneering spirit. In the past, this quiet residential area was mostly known for being home to the Prime Outlet Mall, a major shopping mecca that boast retail 150 stores along with dining and entertainment options. In the 21st century, however, Ellenton is emerging as an area that is poised for expansion and development.
What Ellenton offers to house hunters these days is a nice collection of neighborhoods and subdivisions, and many have been developed in the 21st century. Ellenton is located on the northern banks of the Manatee River, which means that home buyers can still acquire riverfront properties overlooking the Bradenton skyline. Real estate investors have expressed keen interest in the neighborhoods along the Manatee River since they represent some of the last opportunities to acquire waterfront residences in Southwest Florida.
Although there are some apartments and condominium units available in Ellenton, the focus is on spacious single-family residences at very affordable prices. Three and four-bedroom homes recently built on lots of about 6,000 square feet can be acquired at prices considerably lower than those found south of the Manatee River. As expected, many of the new homes follow the Mediterranean-style architectural design, but some of the older residences are Florida ranch-style homes.
Many residents of Ellenton who work or study in Bradenton have three commuting options: I-75, the Green Bridge closer to the Gulf of Mexico and the Tamiami Trail closer to the city. For even more business and educational opportunities, the Skyway Bridge crosses Tampa Bay and connects residents with Saint Petersburg.
Ellenton is attractive to families and seasonal residents who are looking for a peaceful and relaxing community. Boating and fishing are popular activities, and many residents enjoy playing golf and tennis at the various courses around Manatee County. Lovers of the outdoors can appreciate the beauty of Florida’s nature at the nearby Blackstone Park and Robinson Preserve. Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island are just 30 minutes away.
