Osprey is one of the reasons the Sarasota County housing market has gotten so much attention in the last few years. This residential area offers history, nature, quality of life, and spectacular real estate offerings. Families, retirees, history buffs, boaters, and lovers of the outdoors are just some of the house hunters who are routinely attracted to Osprey and the incredible deals it has to offer.
Most of the neighborhoods in Osprey feature single-family residences listed at very attractive prices. Home shoppers looking for waterfront properties in Southwest Florida should consider making Osprey their first stop. About 10 percent of inland Osprey consists of lakes, canals and creeks, and there are also two miles of coastline on the Gulf of Mexico that stretch from Dryman Bay on the south to Little Sarasota Bay on the north.
Osprey is named after a majestic hawk species that feeds on fish. Bird watchers will find plenty of opportunities to spot ospreys and rare species such as the Florida scrub jay at the Oscar Scherer State Park. In fact, some of the best neighborhoods in Osprey are located near this park, and this is where home shoppers are bound to find great value in new, spacious homes built within forest patches and near natural lakes, creeks and ponds.
Pricing in Osprey ranges from under $150K for modest homes and condominium units to more than $16M for spectacular mansions overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The residential offerings include country clubs, yacht clubs, horse ranches, historical neighborhoods, and resort-style communities.
Osprey is home to some of the most peaceful communities in Florida, but residents are by no means isolated. Many families are attracted to Osprey by the prestigious Pine View private school and the fine Sarasota County public schools that serve the area. With the Tamiami Trail cutting across Osprey, neighbors are never far from amenities, shopping or entertainment.
