The Moorings neighborhood is centrally located and stretches from US 41 to the Gulf of Mexico. Much of the area is waterfront with boat docks and shimmering views for both single family homes and condominiums. The Moorings was primarily built in the ’60s, 70’s and early ’80s, and exudes a quiet elegance befitting a premier lifestyle. The streets are lined with ficus, banyan and palm trees, and neatly manicured lawns are in abundance. Architectural styles are dominated by the traditional Florida designs, and many of the older homes have undergone renovations or complete reconstruction as the land value has steadily increased.
Access to the Gulf of Mexico via Doctors Pass is enjoyed from many waterfront properties located along Moorings Bay, Bow Line Bay, Compass Cove, and Hurricane Harbour. The Moorings Country Club, which lies on Crayton Road between Harbour Drive (to the north) and Wedge Drive (to the south), offers beautiful golf course views for many surrounding homes. The residents of the Moorings also enjoy access to their very own private beach on Gulf Shore Blvd.
