Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Englewood,
the Manasota Key neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Manasota Key is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Manasota Key is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Manasota Key neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 54.6%, which is higher than 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Manasota Key neighborhood stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
In addition, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Manasota Key neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 5.3% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Florida, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Florida.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Manasota Key
neighborhood, analysis shows that 15.6% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
98.6% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Manasota Key neighborhood has more
Dutch and French ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dutch ancestry and 9.8% have French ancestry.
Manasota Key is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
