Explore Dr Phillips Real Estate

When it comes to real estate in this centrally-located community, there’s a lot of choice—from modern condos located on the waterfront to gorgeous single-family homes. There are also both gated and non-gated neighborhoods within Dr Phillips, so there’s truly something for everyone. 

Single-family homes for sale in Dr Phillips encompass a wide range of styles, but there is a definite preference for Mediterranean style architecture—or, at the very least, homes that incorporate a lot of these features into their design. Stucco exteriors, curved arched doorways, and tiled roofs are often found on homes for sale in this area (and sometimes even for condos as well) for both bungalows and multi-story properties.

Recent years have seen new construction and developments, but a new home is quite difficult to find on the market. Instead, many residents have renovated and updated older homes, specifically the area’s bungalows. Condos in Dr Phillips are not brand new construction either, but once again, units have been often revitalized—which is wonderful for buyers, as these units tend to be quite spacious already. Complexes in Vizcaya and Bay View Reserve also offer spectacular lake views. 

Dr Phillips’ three large lakes (Spring Lake, Little Sand Lake, and Big Sand Lake) have meant that a multitude of waterfront properties have been constructed in this area. Of course, as some of the most desirable real estate in the community, these typically have luxury price points. Phillips Landing is a desirable gated community in Dr Phillips with gorgeous luxury homes, but each gated community does offer something a bit different. Phillips Bay, as an example, is a gated community that’s part of the Orange Tree Golf Club, which means beautiful golf area homes, great amenities, and landscaping.
