Sarasota Neighborhoods, Communities and Barrier Islands
 Sarasota Mainland

Many of Sarasota's mainland communities have been revitalized and have emerged as some of the City's most sought-after addresses. Mainland neighborhoods exude the character and charm of Old Florida, while their close proximity to downtown Sarasota's cultural offerings, shopping and restaurants make them convenient as well as delightful places to call home.

Cherokee Park- Cherokee Park transcends the times with its wide, quiet streets, gracious, traditional homes, and tropical mature trees. Many of the homes in this well-established neighborhood have been recently renovated.

Downtown- From new luxury condominiums facing Sarasota Bay to renovated apartments and a delightful mix of both new and renovated waterfront homes and classic bungalows, downtown Sarasota offers a vibrant city center, tremendous cultural offerings, dinning and nightlife.

Gulf Gate- This tranquil, older classic Florida neighborhood features single-story, ranch-style, concrete homes with barrel tile roof. Yards and homes are beautifully maintained in Gulf Gate while winding streets and mature trees help to create a comfortable community atmosphere.

Lakewood Ranch - though located in Manatee County, this master planned community offers numerous villages, with a wide variety of home sizes, great amenities and gated maintenance-free lifestyles near shopping, dining and area conveniences.

Harbor Acres- With its beautifully landscape streets and location along Sarasota Bay, Harbor Acres is an astute property investment as well as a wonderful place to live.

Oyster Bay- Centered around the Field Club, Oyster Bay is a small area of distinguished homes featuring classic Old Florida style, along with executive residences and a few mansions.

The Landings- One of Sarasota's most popular newer communities, The Landings is a gated community just moments away from schools, shopping, Siesta Key Beach, and Sarasota's finest restaurants. Great community amenities include tennis, pool, gym, clubhouse, walking and biking trails.

McClellan Park- McClellan Park is a neighborhood of mostly older homes set in a tranquil area of narrow, winding streets. There's a sense of history here...a quiet neighborhood holding onto its inherent charm.

Museum Area- The museum area comfortably mixes the modern and the traditional. Those homes facing Sarasota Bay include some of our city's most imposing residences, while more affordable homes also grace the quiet streets.

South Gate- One of Sarasota's signature neighborhoods, South Gate is a community of more than 2,000 single-family homes renowned for its unpretentious ranch-style houses, easily identifiable by their concrete and stucco exteriors, barrel tile roofs and well-tended lawns.

 Sarasota Keys

Some of the area’s most distinctive properties are located on the barrier islands. In Sarasota County, the three distinct “islands” accessible by bridge are Casey Key, Siesta Key, Lido/Bird Keys and Longboat Key.

Bird Key- Located just west of downtown Sarasota and the John Ringling Bridge, Bird Key is an exclusive gated enclave comprised of some 500 single family homes on quiet streets, many with wonderful views of the Sarasota skyline and the shimmering waters of Sarasota Bay.

Lido Shores- Views of the Sarasota skyline, gulf and bay provide a stunning backdrop for dramatic, upscale properties created by some of Sarasota's most talented architects and designers.

Longboat Key- Impeccably manicured fairways and meticulous landscaping characterize this luxurious residential and resort community. Home of world-class golf and tennis resorts, Longboat Key offers residential options ranging from opulent high-rise condominiums lining the Gulf of Mexico, to sprawling bayside estates.

Manasota Key- Enchanting Manasota Key is unique in that it has no high-rise buildings and no traffic lights. What it does have is beautiful, pristine beaches and a two-lane, Florida-protected, tree-canopied road with private homes shielded behind lush tropical foliage.

Siesta Key- With the distinction of having the "World’s Whitest Sand Beach," Siesta Key features a tropical island feel with a mix of residential options from waterfront homes and mid-rise condominiums to quaint beach cottages.

St. Armands- World-renowned for its shopping and dining, St. Armands is a residential community of some 225 homes of mixed architectural styles. It is also a cultural destination featuring festivals and special events year-round.

Casey Key- Casey Key is a narrow, eight-mile-long strip of land where nearly every house has a view of the Gulf of Mexico. Located south of Siesta Key between the Gulf of Mexico and Blackburn Bay, it is one of Florida’s most prestigious addresses.
