Situated just north of Burnt Store Marina is Burnt Store Lakes, a deed restricted community with a Property Owners Association. In the past few years, “The Lakes” has seen enormous growth. The residences tend to be modern, custom-built Florida-style homes that give the neighborhood a newer community feel.
True to its name, Burnt Store Lakes boasts 11 scenic lakes scattered throughout the community. Nature lovers delight in sharing their neighborhood with bald eagles, herons, sandhill cranes, blue herons, and egrets. Common grounds, such as the Lowell Thompson Memorial Park, encourage residents to take advantage of the natural beauty all around them.
Boaters who live in the area enjoy the close proximity to Burnt Store Marina. Most homes are less than a five-minute drive to the Marina, which offers direct access to the Gulf.
Because of the area’s residential growth, a rush of commercial buildings has cropped up around the Lakes. The businesses, coupled with the Lakes’ opportune location between Charlotte and Lee Counties, make shopping and errand running convenient.
Home prices range from $100,000 to $500,000. Lots without lake views start around $10,000 and those with lake views start at about $40,000. Condo prices start at around $145,000.
