Just an hour south of Sarasota and 90 minutes outside of Ft. Myers, Englewood is a historic fishing village that's become a quintessential addition to the area's culture. Traveling through the historic region of West Dearborn Street, you'll find an eccentric collection of home decor and antique shops nestled among unique craft shops and restaurants. The waterfront homes for sale in Englewood are an experience all their own. With unimpeded views of the abundant coastline, it's easy to see why so many artists and creatives are attracted to the area.
Walking along the boardwalk at Englewood Beach, you'll notice families at play or leisurely basking in the rolling turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Sailboats and parasails catch the ocean's winds and sights of sea life are scattered as far as the eye can see. Claim a gorgeous estate along the Intracoastal Waterway that gives you instant access to the gulf. Take your boat out to go fishing or to get a closer look at the dolphins frolicking in the water. You can also enjoy an afternoon of shelling along the sand.
The self-proclaimed "art town" is living inspiration to so many imaginative minds. In fact, Artist Acres was officially established in the 1950s as a testament to the working visionaries who are able to perfect their craft while living in an affordable area. New residents can appreciate Englewood's small-town appeal and capitalize on every opportunity to put their personalized spin on its redevelopment.
