Great information from my colleague Dan Jasmer: If you are in search of a prestigious address with excellent boating access and a short drive, walk or bike ride to Downtown Sarasota, you must take a look at Harbor Acres.
Homes for sale in Harbor Acres offer large home sites on beautifully landscaped streets that wind through this stylish and comfortable neighborhood. Many of Harbor Acres' original "Old Florida" homes blend nicely with impressive new designs. Some of the older outdated homes are being replaced with newer grand and stately mansions that look as if they have always been here.
Located in the highly coveted West of Trail area, and consisting of no more than 170 or so homes, Harbor Acres is popular with families, professionals and executives who find its quaint ambiance and waterfront opulence very enticing. Hundreds of old and glorious oak trees line the meandering roads that take you home.
Many of the homes for sale in Harbor Acres have water frontage on Sarasota Bay or the basins, and offer spectacular views and private boat dockage making the neighborhood particularly attractive for boating enthusiasts.
A great part of the appeal of Harbor Acres is its unrivalled location, just south of downtown & west of Sarasota Memorial Hospital. Downtown Sarasota is just minutes away and the shops and restaurants of Southside Village are a short walk from home. Gather with your friends at Libby's and Sam Snead's restaurants, shop at Morton's Market and enjoy the hair salons and trendy boutiques that have made this area such a delight to call home.
