Mapleloft, Sarasota, Florida
Mapleloft is a consistent favorite of those lucky enough to find it. For years, it remained hidden, tucked away in a back corner off of a dead end road. Webber Road has since been opened up, but that has only added convenience to the neighborhood and has not detracted from its charm.
Mapleloft is true to its name, offering the shade of hundreds of huge maple and oak trees. This neighborhood is reminiscent of the old northern streets, with huge shade trees overhanging quaint homes. You can almost feel yourself relaxing as you drive through its streets. The homes were built primarily in the late 80s and early 90s.
The community offers its own fishing lake, as well as nature and walking trails. Although once tucked away in obscurity, the neighborhood is now accessible by a major road leading to grocery and retail shopping, dining, health care and county parks. Beaches are about fifteen minutes away, as is downtown.
