Sarasota, Florida Luxury Homes
If the Tampa, Florida area does not meet your requirements take a look at Sarasota, Florida. It is located roughly 50 miles south of Tampa so residents of Sarasota are within a short drive to all of the amenities of Tampa and St. Petersburg.
People flock to Sarasota and the barrier islands because of the clear, aqua blue waters, gorgeous beaches, extensive arts and cultural community, lots of great boating spots, quaint shopping destinations and a multitude of casual and fine dining spots.
The barrier islands off Sarasota – Longboat Key, Siesta Key, Lido Key and Casey Key offer some of the most amazing real estate in the state of Florida. Each island offers a slightly different taste.
Longboat Key is an eleven mile long island that offers numerous beach front and bay front condominiums options as well as luxury single family homes on the beach, canal, bay and golf course. The island is very manicured, pristine and is the only island with a golf course
Siesta Key is an 8 mile long island just off the coast of Sarasota and can be accessed by two bridges. This island offers a variety of condo and single family homes on or off the water. The feel is very laid back and will remind you of “Old Florida.”
Casey Key is just south of Sarasota and has some of the finest water front homes on the west coast of Florida. There are no condominiums to speak of on the island. Many of the homes are gulf to bay allowing homeowners the luxury of beach front living as well as the ability to have a boat in the back yard.
Lido Key is the most accessible island to downtown Sarasota. The island is small yet offers beach front condo living as well as single family homes on and off the water. The world famous shopping destination of St. Armands Circle is location on Lido Key. Many of the homes and condos are within walking distance to shopping, spa, dining and entertainment.
