Burnt Store Meadows


Burnt Store Meadows is a deed-restricted community located in the southern section of Punta Gorda and Charlotte County. It offers newer, Florida-style homes in a quiet park-like environment with association-maintained green belts behind each home that beckons to both young and old. The tropical birds and wildlife that traverse the green belts is almost unparalleled in this area. They are not a “once in a while” sight but an everyday one.


The Meadows’ location is one of its strongest attributes with very quick access to three of Charlotte County’s most important roads. Burnt Store Road borders the community to the west while U.S. 41 (Tamiami Trail) forms the northwest border. Burnt Store Road offers a linear, high-speed route to Cape Coral; U.S. 41 is the primary thoroughfare along most of the Southwest Florida coastline; the Meadows is within 5 minutes of I-75.


Owners of property in Burnt Store Meadow are required to join the Property Owners Association which is managed by a Board of Directors elected annually by the membership. The Board conducts monthly meetings and has an annual dinner business meeting in October. Currently the annual dues are $95 per year. There is also a Neighborhood Watch program in place within the community.


Real estate opportunities in Burnt Store Meadows range from of single family homes under construction to ones built since the mid-80s. Most have open floor plans with lots of windows and sliding glass doors leading to a lanai that may or may not adjoin a swimming pool. The homes are typically custom-built with very few similarities to their neighbors. Condominiums are located along the northern portion of the first street in from US 41 and in one section along main roadway through the community. Homes prices range from the high $100s to the low $400s while vacant lots start in the mid 20s.
