A sprawling deed-restricted community of 1,860 single-family lots and 170 multi-family lots, Burnt Store Lakes abuts Charlotte Harbor on its western border, separated by a lush mangrove preserve. Once a prosperous chrysanthemum farm, the community is home to a variety of fascinating fauna including bald eagles, ospreys and blue heron among others. Embellishing the tranquil, natural feel of the community, eleven picturesque lakes cover approximately 125 acres and provide a great habitat for both fresh- and saltwater fish. Consequently, residents often enjoy fishing and paddling on these peaceful lakes.
