Bird Key is a prestigious, established enclave of 500 single family homes on quiet streets, with striking vistas of Sarasota Bay and city skyline. Most home sites are waterfront, either on the bay or canal, with deep water direct Gulf access. Many older homes are undergoing major renovations and upgrades, or are being tom down and replaced with larger, more luxurious residences.
Close proximity to beaches, shops, restaurants and downtown make Bird Key unique, plus it is one of the few neighborhoods which consist of only single family residences: no condos, duplexes or villas. For social venues, the private Bird Key Yacht Club features fine dining, pool and tennis courts.
Golden Gate Point
Once known simply as Cedar Point, it’s easy to see why this tiny 22-acre peninsula—that juts into Sarasota Bay—eventually earned the name Golden Gate Point. Much has been done over the years to improve what ultimately became the storied gateway to John Ringling’s resort communities on St. Armand’s, Lido and Longboat Keys. Each time a new causeway was built to link Sarasota with these barrier islands, the span would originate from this previously undeveloped stretch of land.
With the magnificent Ritz-Carlton Hotel as its new neighbor, today’s Golden Gate Point is the address for some of the city’s most impressive new residential offerings. These include Vista Bay Point and La Bellasara, luxury condominiums that hug the shoreline and command breathtaking city, bay, gulf and sunset views. A short scenic walk is all that’s required to transport you to the restaurant, shopping and cultural offerings that have made Sarasota an international destination.
