Privileged Sarasota Real Estate - Bird Key & Golden Gate Point

Sarasota is known for beautiful vistas and simply stunning real estate options. From waterfront views to trendy urban-chic condominiums, those looking to move to Sarasota have no shortage of options and choice of lifestyle. Sitting in arguably the most privileged real estate locations in Sarasota are Golden Gate Point and Bird Key. We invite you to discover these tiny hidden gems that are often driven past but rarely explored. 

Golden Gate Point is only 22 acres, but is one of the hottest properties in town. Located just northwest of Bayfront Park, this small community is situated across from the Ritz Carlton and within sight of the iconic Unconditional Surrender statue. Once a haven of small, private homes and motels, it is now home to the Phoenix and ONE 88, as well as the highly anticipated Pearl. (2019) Golden Gate Point has tree-lined, brick streets, shaded benches and a true small town feel. Surrounded by water and within blocks of downtown's restaurants, theaters and events, living on Golden Gate Point is a luxurious way to enjoy all that paradise has to offer. 

Heading west from Golden Gate Point and traveling towards Lido Key and St. Armand's Circle, you'll find one of our favorite neighborhoods - Bird Key. Situated on 250 acres, this real estate is regally surrounded by Sarasota Bay, and includes 511 homes.  With deep water canals and ample bayfront property, nearly 300 homes enjoys water views, while 220 homes are known as "garden homes", or those properties which were off-water. Without commercial interests, the Key, one of 6 in Sarasota, has only residential single family homes, and the popular Bird Key Marina. Options range from modest older Florida ranch-style homes to brand-new Mediterranean mansions. Bird Key has a rich history which includes development by the famous Ringling family of circus fame. 

Bird Key Park is located across the causeway from the community, and St. Armand's Circle is less than 2 miles away. With such close proximity to both Lido Key and Sarasota's vibrant downtown, it is hard to find a more attractive place to live for so many reasons.
