McIntosh Lake, Sarasota, Florida
McIntosh Lake is a Sarasota real estate secret. This is a small community of only 80 homes, originally built by award winning Bamboo builders, McIntosh Lake is a circular community surrounding - what else? - a beautiful lake rife with birds and wildlife. All the interior homes on the circle border this lovely view.
McIntosh Lake is located in a very convenience location, just north of Bee Ridge and south of Fruitville. This provides easy access to two areas of shopping and dining. It is a quick 5-10 minute drive downtown from Fruitville Road, and Lido Key, St. Armands Circle and Lido Beach are just a few minutes more. From the Bee Ridge side, you can be in Southside Village or on the north end of Siesta Key within 10 minutes as well. To be so centrally located on the mainland, yet have such a tranquil setting, is special indeed.
Homes were built in the '90s in the well known Florida Mediterranean design; many have pools. Homes are 3-4 bedrooms and provide good sized yards which are well manicured and show pride of ownership. If you wish to be close to everything, but enjoy watching cranes walk across your yard - McIntosh Lake just may be your Sarasota home.
