Bradenton area Real Estate
Welcome to TrueBradenton.com. This site was designed to highlight Bradenton Real Estate, as well as real estate from the surrounding areas of Lakewood Ranch, Anna Maria Island/Holmes Beach and all of Manatee County; including Ellenton, Parrish, and Palmetto.
Located in the heart of Manatee County and directly on the Gulf of Mexico, Bradenton is ideally situated to take advantage of gorgeous beaches, vibrant culture and history, and new business development. With new affordable homes and condos, master planned communities, additional schools, hospitals and shopping, Bradenton is coming into its own as a terrific place to live and work. Ideally situated within miles of Sarasota-Bradenton airport and only 45 minutes from Tampa International, along with I-75 running right through it, it is easy to get anywhere from Bradenton.
While sharing a common history and a future destiny with Sarasota, Bradenton has a unique character all it’s own that sets it apart. Now nationally recognized as one of America’s best cities for the arts, it was the artist community of Bradenton that took the initiative and revitalized a part of downtown, taking original homes from long ago and transforming them into the Village of the Arts, where artists live but also operate galleries and businesses open to the public, and many events. McKechnie Field, now known as LECOM Park (named after the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, with a location east of I-75, between exits 217 and 220), is the 3rd oldest still functioning baseball park in America (only Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field of Chicago are older) and has long been the spring training home for the Pittsburgh Pirates. When the Pirates leave for the regular season, Bradenton residents can enjoy minor league baseball as the park is home to the Bradenton Marauders, a Pirates affiliate. The city has also spent vast resources creating the Riverwalk District, taking advantage of the natural beauty and historical area running along the south bank of the Manatee River. A drive along Riverview Boulevard will reveal some of the most beautiful real estate in all of Florida, including restored and renovated homes dating back to the 1920’s. Northwest Bradenton and Palma Sola remain one of the finest places to call home and from there, it’s only a short drive across the causeway to world renowned Anna Maria island. Bradenton area actually has 3 barrier islands, Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach, and 4 if you include the northern section of Longboat Key, which is a city unto itself and another thing shared between Sarasota and Manatee counties. There are sections and homes that maintain a Sarasota address, but are actually in Manatee County, such as the Whitfield neighborhoods along US 41, and communities on the northern side of booming University Parkway. Most of Lakewood Ranch is in Manatee County, east of I-75. Not only does this area continue to grow, but the vast expanse north of Lakewood Ranch and State Road 64 is simply exploding with new home communities many of which are country style, with larger lots and homes, a plethora of golfing opportunities (Heritage Harbour, Greenfield Plantation, and Waterlefe), and the convenience to Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton and Sarasota amenities, and I-75 for an easy commute. In recent years, the once sleepy city of Parrish has grown in popularity with many new home communities and more planned for the future. Parrish is ideally situated between Tampa/St.Pete as well as Sarasota-Bradenton, making it a convenient location for residents needing to commute to either area, while living in a more rural and country destination.
