If you're looking for a perfect home on Florida's Gulf Coast, don't overlook beautiful Bird Key, one of the most exclusive residential communities anywhere.
It's a majestic barrier island in Sarasota Bay, 250 beautifully-sculpted acres of the most magnificent homes on the coast. Bird Key is a tranquil community connected to downtown Sarasota by the John Ringling Causeway Bridge. And unlike the other nearby islands, high-rise condominiums can't be found on Bird Key. It's all single-family homes.
Bird Key sits in the center of everything, only minutes from beaches and world-class shopping and dining. Yet Bird Key's quiet, tucked-away ambience assures that this exclusive enclave of homes remains serene and unpretentious.
To call Bird Key a boater’s delight is an understatement. Many of the island's homes sit directly on Sarasota Bay or on the deep-water canals. Boaters enjoy extra-wide waterways and quick, easy access to the Gulf of Mexico. Legendary circus entrepreneur John Ringling completed the first home built on Bird Key; that magnificent structure is today the Bird Key Yacht Club, one of the most esteemed clubs in Florida. The Club offers members an exceptional list of amenities as well as docking services with reciprocal agreements at the area's other yacht clubs. Sailors will appreciate that Bird Key is also only minutes from the Sarasota Yacht Club and the Sarasota Sailing Squadron.
Of course, Bird Key residents enjoy all the marvelous benefits of Sarasota living: superior fishing and water sports, dozens of golf and tennis options, stunning natural beauty, sparkling white beaches, a variety of intriguing music and art festivals, and leading cultural venues like the historic Asolo Theatre and Van Wezel Hall. The average year-round temperature is 73 degrees, and the long summer days are punctuated by cool breezes drifting in from the Gulf.
With today's low home prices and the absolute lowest interest rates ever, there's no time like now to discover your perfect home on Florida's majestic Bird Key.
