Alligator Creek is a Tidal Creek in Sarasota County that widens and flows into the Lemon Bay intercoastal waterway from the casual lifestyle neighborhood of South Venice.
From 1470 Lemon Bay Drive, you can enter the inter-coastal waterway - with NO BRIDGES, in approximately 5 mins. Navigate to the Gulf in approximately 25-30 minutes by way of Stump pass. Leisurely boat to many waterfront restaurants and parks like the Don Pedro State Park - enjoying fantastic sunsets along the way. The laid back neighborhood of South Venice is valuable to buyers who seek NO FEES from an HOA or CDD’s (this is not a gated community - home sizes, age & styles vary). There are NO minimum years of ownership OR minimum days to rent should you desire to purchase for a VRBO. This neighborhood is especially great for those who work from home and have recreational or work vehicles. Parking them on your property saves you storage fees, time and aggravation. This property has 10ft high garage door openings and a large, wide circular driveway to accommodate your toys and vehicles.
