Come see why River Strand was voted as the top golf course communities in Manatee and Sarasota County! The location of this community is simply fabulous. Located a mile away from I-75, you are just a short drive away to downtown Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, and the area's top rated beaches, including Siesta Key and Anna Marie Island. The community is also located on the Manatee River, so a large area of River Strand real estate is devoted to preserving a vast expanse of conservation areas.
Due to the abundance of natural preserves and tropical conservation areas, homes for sale in River Strand have a front seat view to a variety of stunning wildlife, including white pelicans, otters, alligators, and a variety of birds. In fact, in one recent listing, a homeowner shared with me that the "birders' in the community had documented over 55 varieties of birds! Some of the best views can be found from the 4 story condos for sale in River Strand, with many of them offering panoramic views of the Manatee River, golf course, water, and preserves. And these condos for sale in River Strand can be purchased for under $200,000! In my opinion, this is a striking value for those seeking affordable luxury. At the same time, homes for sale in River Strand offer a variety of price points as well, ranging from the high 200's to the $800's.
