Wondering about the area off Loveland / Peachland. The real estate listing reads as "the highly sought after area of Sec 15". What makes it so special? Are the neighborhoods well kept

Most of Charlotte doesn't have city sewer, this area does. City sewer is a big deal in Charlotte county. You probably won't have city sewer unless you are in a really old section of town or gated. Most of the homes are newer, bigger and well kept. It's closer to I-75. Those are the main reasons.

The beach is just shy of an hour. For shopping you'd probably want to to into to Sarasota via Fruitville Rd. You're looking at a 30 minute ride. Arcadia is about the same distance the other way.

Talking Depends what you're seeking

"the highly sought after area of Sec 15"

Keep in mind that's an advertisement to sell a home. I just saw an ad that says "on corner lot for extra privacy." I've also seen ads in Port Charlotte that read "highly sought after New York section." I'd like to know who is excited about buying a house there!

Very few areas of Port Charlotte have deed restrictions, but some streets are nicer than others. It's always a good idea to drive around a neighborhood in which you're interested. If it's not gated, get out of your car and chat with the neighbors! People around here are very friendly.

Loveland/Peachland is a very busy area and there's been some road construction for a while. However, a house might be on a side street, far from traffic noise and sirens. Just around the corner are lots of fast food restaurants on Veteran's Hwy and that stretch of road can become very congested, especially during rush hour. There's a nice Publix in a small shopping center just past the intersection of Peachland and Loveland and a Wal-Mart in the other direction near the interstate.

RE: sewer. There are other areas in Charlotte County on sewer (i.e., off of O'Hara, Silverbell) but most of the homes in PC are still on septic. I wouldn't base a search on that feature alone, however.

If you need to be near I-75, just around the corner in Charlotte County are other neighborhoods with sewer, depending on how important that is to you. Deep Creek is officially in Punta Gorda, but is on city water/sewer. Harbor Heights is very close to I-75 (also with a Punta Gorda address) and most of it is on public utilities.

If you are concentrating on Port Charlotte properties, my preference is the area near Englewood and Rotonda West & Placida. It's quieter and closer to the beach. However, it's definitely not as convenient if you need to be near I-75 and business 41.

It's very rural and you need to drive several miles for anything. If you desire a home with acreage, you might be better off looking in North Port Estates (34291)
