Deep Creek is a deed-restricted community on the north side of the Peace River east of I-75. The location of this well-established “bedroom” community is one of its best attributes as two of its three entrance/exit points are at access ramps to the interstate, very convenient for those residents commuting to Fort Myers’ or Sarasota’s employment opportunities. Punta Gorda’s downtown area is within five miles of its southern entrance and the northern entrance literally faces a WallMart SuperCenter; a large shopping mall is located one interstate-width to the west of that intersection. Deep Creek is another greenbelt community with many canals and lakes within its borders.
The community was initially developed by PGI, Inc, the same group that built Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles. Deep Creek’s development began in the early 80s and there are still many vacant parcels available.
Listing prices of homes in Deep Creek range from the high $100s to the mid $300s. Dry vacant parcels are available for under $10,000; canalfront parcels are available for under $20,000. Deep Creek is home to many communities of scrub jays, a protected bird species. Vacant land purchasers should be aware that most vacant parcels are classified as being subject to a variable mitigation fee (based on size) that will be tacked onto the cost of the building permit.
NOTE: The two Deep Creek Homes searches below are by Section; Section 20 is to the north of Sandhill Boulevard, section 23 is to the south. Each section has its own Homeowners’ Association which are VERY similar as to fees and deed restrictions. In our opinion there are no specific attributes of either section that would affect pricing. Splitting them apart does, however, increase the readablilty of their maps.
Harbour Oaks is a gated deed=restricted community located east of Deep Creek’s mid-section and is virtually invisible to the general public. It’s a secluded, private neighborhood with custom-built homes nestled along tree lined streets, very family-friendly with an association-maintained private playground and tennis courts within its boundaries; visitors always remark they can sense a definite air of exclusivity.
The community is very cohesive and, thanks to an active social committee (an entity not typically found Florida Homeowners’ Associations, sponsors so traditional events including an annual Halloween hayride, a Christmas holiday lighting party, an Easter Egg hunt and an annual garage sale. It’s still small enough to afford the opportunity of scheduling your private tennis lessons within walking distance of your home.
Heron’s Cove is a deed-restricted community located to the east of Deep Creek’s northenmost corner and is also virtually invisible to the general public. It is comprised of only two streets, each with a single access point, on which 15 single-family 1+ to 4+ acre parcels are located. 10 of the 15 front on Deep Creek, a natural offshoot of the Peace River with water depths that do justify its name. Estate-type homes with long driveways (some gated) are the norm – Heron’s cove is perhaps Charlotte County’s most private enclave.
