Anyone searching for a place to live in Punta Gorda should be sure to visit Punta Gorda Isles homes. First developed in 1957, the community continued to grow and build until 1981. Today, there are still a fair number of vacant lots for sale. Buyers are not on a deadline to build, so they can take time to design their ideal home. On the resale market, there are condos, townhomes, and single-family homes.
The big draw for Punta Gorda Isles homes is the 45-mile system of canals and inlets. The canals provide access to Port Charlotte and the Gulf of Mexico. Another great advantage is that the city of Punta Gorda takes care of the maintenance of the seawalls and dredging for the canals. Many budgets can be accommodated with Punta Gorda Isles real estate. Homes range in size from a cosy 1,800 square feet up to 4,000 square feet or even more. Some of these mansions are on double lots. Many homes, of all sizes, have swimming pools and covered lanais. Those living in condos can enjoy the community swimming pool. Waterfront homes have a dock to tie up a boat. Proximity to the canals and open water have a big impact on house prices.
Residents can join the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, which offers events, clubs, education, and more to members. There are 40 different clubs, which focus on music, newcomers to the area, singles, community service, boating, several different card clubs, golf, knitting, and much more. Join the Tennis Club and use the great courts in Punta Gorda Isles. The Tennis Club maintains the courts using membership fees. There are also fitness classes, like Zumba, yoga, and stretching. Those who enjoy golf can join St. Andrews South Golf Club and play on the beautiful course, which is located within Punta Gorda Isles. Nature lovers will enjoy Punta Gorda Nature Park, also located in the development. It’s a great place to go birding, fishing, or for a walk on one of the paths.
