Buyers of Sarasota real estate usually have to choose between the big shaded lot and the beach lifestyle. Not so at the well respected and established Sanderling Club, the grand dame of gated communities on Siesta Key. This entire subdivision hearkens back to another era.
Wih some homes built as far back as the 1940's, the Sanderling Club is one of the more special subdivisions in Sarasota. Located on directly on the beach on southern Siesta, the neighborhood also has lush tropical foliage and huge mature shade trees. It is the only single family home community with a 24 hour manned security gate on the Key. Spacious homes on large wooded lots prove that you can have both a parklike setting and the expansive white sands of world famous Siesta Key. Many homesites are on wide lagoons brimming with wildlife - birdwatching is a popular pastime, as crane, ibis and heron will wander across your yard. Homes located on the beach and with gulf views are multi million dollar properties, interior homes provide more affordable options, but all are special and unique. This is a quiet, private and elegant existence, not often found on Siesta Key.
Membership in the Sanderling Club has many benefits, including deeded gulf access and usage of the clubs cabanas. The community has deep water docks and tennis. Membership in the Club is mandatory, but when you own a piece of Sarasota real estate history, it is worth it!
