Poinsettia Park, Sarasota, Florida
Although throughout the Sarasota real estate community we may just call them the "Flower Streets", the official name of this section of the quaint West of Trail neighborhood is Poinsettia Park. Located west of Route 41 but east of Osprey Avenue, this neighborhood is both historic and highly desirable.
Homes range from classic 1920s and 1930s cottages to newly constructed beautiful homes; the new homes, however, most often are reminiscent of the traditional Spanish architecture famous in this part of town. Most buyers currently purchasing the older homes are doing so for lot value, and either completing renovating or building new.
Just north of the upper Siesta Key causeway, and just south of Southside Village, its hard to find a better neighborhood that is still affordable. Minutes to the white sand beaches, close proximity to the gourmet markets, restaurants, wine shops and events of Southside, and biking distance to the beauty of Selby Gardens and Bayfront Park. The eclectic and funky Main Street is also an easy bike ride or aggressive walk; making your car almost obsolete!
The drive up Osprey Avenue is pleasant and leisurely. Poinsettia Park is an excellent opportunity for nearly everyone to buy into one of the best locations in Sarasota, and its only getting better.
