Fairway Bay - Community Spotlight

by Roger Pettingell

Fairway Bay: golfing, boating and more

Choice among Townhouses, Mid-Rise and Atriums

REALTALK #80 on Fairway Bay, Longboat Key
REALTALK™ #80 - I describe the Fairway Bay community in this March 2016 REALTALK™ video.

So you want to be close to the fairway of a world class championship golf course and you want to moor your 85-foot yacht on the bay in a marina with wonderful amenities. Look no further than the community of Fairway Bay. That may be enough. You'll also be close to fine dining and Gulf of Mexico beach access. Then you would have a community aptly named Fairway Bay Dining Beach. What about a neighborhood that also is a short bike ride to great shopping at St. Armands Circle and grocery shopping at Publix? Understandably you might not want all that in a community name, but Fairway Bay does have it all.

Walk out your door and you are on the fairway of the second of two championship golf courses of the Longboat Key Club, its Harbourside golf course. There are 27 holes played in pairs of nine for your 18-hole pleasure. An accurate tee shot is required for the fairways on the 3,426-yard White Egret course but large greens are inviting you on your second or third shot. In contrast, there is plenty of open fairway on the Red Hawk course. There is also plenty of water so it is challenging, yet beautiful scenery on it its course of 3,323 yards. You also have the third option, the Blue Heron course of 3,401 yards. You may not even take your golf bag as the scenery here is enticing enough and launches this course as one of the most famous on the Longboat Key Club golf tour. The 18-hole Links on Longboat golf course is three miles to the south.

You are also within a short walk to your yacht in the largest deep-water marina on the Gulf of Mexico coast. This is a full service marina with boat slips up to 150 feet, that accommodate anything from nightly to annual docking. You are close to the Portofino Ristorante & Bar or you can jump on one of the shuttles to experience any of the seven other fine dining establishments at the Longboat Key Club. Annual or summer memberships are available for club membership to include all the amenities of tennis, spa and pool lounging.

Amenities at Fairway Bay
Among the many amenities at Fairway Bay is a resort-style heated swimming pool

If that isn’t enough you have a choice of townhouses that were built in Phase One of Fairway Bay in 1982. These townhouses won the Aurora design competition for their copper roofs and distinct blue awning. Arvida Corporation went on to build a total of 264 residences in the coming four years with more phases consisting of mid-rise and Atrium residences, a mid-rise with three-bedroom floor plans. There is a private garage for each residence of Fairway Bay. These properties start well below $1 million and have plenty of value on Longboat Key, known for its multi-million-dollar homes.

Fairway Bay has its own set of amenities including two heated resort style swimming pools, with hot tub and spa. There is also a fitness center and clubhouse. All properties are behind 24/7 manned gates and each owner has deeded access to the Bay Isles Beach Club. This club is on the beautiful white Gulf of Mexico beach sands. On the beach you will find private pavilions, showers, restroom, grilling areas and beach volleyball layouts. But the greatest amenities you will see are the views of the Sarasota Bay, city skyline at night or the sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico waters.

2016 Harbourside Dr, #334/335
Rare 3 bedroom - Call us to see this Fairway Bay residence with wonderful bay and skyline views.

I currently have on the market, a rarely available 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom residence at Fairway Bay with 2,462 square feet of living space with two terraces at 2016 Harbourside Dr, #334/335. I have three more listings added last week. The first is a wonderful 6-bedroom estate with guest cottage on Siesta Key with deep-water dockage near the famous white sands of Siesta Key beach. Our new listing at L’Ambiance is a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom furnished residence that is on the southern Longboat Key Club golf course, Links on Longboat. I have another furnished residence for sale, a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom property in the Longboat Terrace community at 5393 Gulf of Mexico Dr, #204. Please contact me at (941) 387-1840 for an exclusive showing or if you have a property to sell or buy. Happy Halloween!

New construction off the beaten path in Sarasota

by Roger Pettingell

Spurt in Rosemary District revitalizes area

New constructions in downtown Sarasota are filling needs

Valencia in the Rosemary District of Sarasota, Florida
Valencia - There are plenty of good opportunities here in the Rosemary District of downtown Sarasota.

Drive off the beaten path of Sarasota’s Tamiami Trail, and you will find an explosion of new condominium construction, revitalizing the downtown area. The Rosemary District has been neglected for years but is now in the middle of a growth spurt that will turn around this area. Its boundaries begin at Fruitville Road on the south, extends northward to 10th Street, then to the trail on the west and Orange Avenue on the east. The location is ideal with its close proximity to downtown shopping and dining. Take in a performance at the The Players Theatre or the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe. Its history is as long as Sarasota itself, platted with the city in 1885.

Drive up Cocoanut Avenue and the large new building Cityside on the right looms in your line of sight at Boulevard of the Arts. In two phases 489 apartments will be completed and ready for rental soon. To the left at the intersection is Valencia at Rosemary Place. These luxury townhouses are expected to be completed this winter, with the Pamplona floor plan sold out by Icon Residential. However, there are plenty of available residences as the construction project continues to the north. Ten units of the Almeria floor plan along May Lane are offered with 2,099 square feet of living space, complete with a deck and garage. The Cordoba is slightly smaller and also has a garage with each residence. As bookends at each end of May Lane where 10 units of the Almeria floor plans will be built are the Madrid on the west and the Barcelona on the east at the Cocoanut Avenue intersection. Icon has other construction projects in Tampa Bay, Orlando and Atlanta.

When completed in the summer of 2017 there will be 22 new residences that are selling in the range of $350,000 to $900,000 at Risdon on 5th. Six remain unsold in this gated community. Award-winning architects Michael Halflants and John Pichette are planning a rooftop swimming pool with great views of downtown Sarasota. Halflants and Pichette are also the involved architects for Vanguard Lofts at 1343 Fourth Street. One residence of the six remains unsold and is a 2BR/2BA with two-car garage. It is listed for $799,000 with expected completion of this community in March of 2017.

Cityside
There will be 489 new apartments in the Rosemary District when all of Cityside is finished.

No discussion of new construction in Sarasota would be complete without mentioning The Vue at Gulfstream and Tamiami Trail. When completed in early 2017, there will be 141 residences in 18 stories that overlook the Sarasota skyline. Five properties are active in MLS as of this morning’s writing, which includes these two penthouses. Residence number 1802 is a three bedroom, three and one half bath property that includes three parking spaces listed at $3,399,000. Unit 1801 listed at $2,999,000 has four bedrooms, four and a half baths with two assigned parking spaces. Nearing completion, there is still time to purchase and add your finishing touches to the design.

If your wishes are to be on the barrier islands and want to move in soon, the Park Residences on Lido Key may be right for you. Three of the 18 residences here are still active listings. You are steps to the Gulf of Mexico white sand beach and bordered by 100 acres of nature preserve at Ted Sperling Park. All floor plans are sold with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The famed St. Armands Circle is close and Sarasota is a short drive away over the Ringling Bridge.

The newly completed Aria at Villa am Meer and the contemporary Infinity communities have sold all of their properties on Longboat Key. However, there are many Longboat Key residences for sale that have been updated with modern finishes and available.

Last week I listed two homes and two residences for sale on Longboat Key. The luxury home at 5080 Gulf of Mexico Drive has five bedrooms, five full baths and three half baths. It is complete with infinity-edge pool and boat dockage. The home for sale at 1011 Longboat Club Road is a golfer’s paradise on Longboat Key Club’s Islandside golf course and is only one of seven custom homes there within walking distance to the beach. A short distance is my new listing at L'Ambiance Dr, #D906, also on Islanside golf course and overlooks the newly renourished Gulf beach at this elegant community. I have also listed a rarely available three bedroom walk-down to the beach residence at Beachplace, with its many fine amenities. Please contact me at (941) 387-1840 for an exclusive showing or if you have a property to sell or buy.

Philanthropy begins with donation of time

by Roger Pettingell

Non-profits make Sarasota a better place

Organizations thrive on donations and volunteers

Southeastern Guide Dogs in REALTALK #64
Southeastern Guide Dogs - The CEO of this non-profit said they need 1,100 active volunteers.

A good way to support the community is to give a donation to a non-profit organization that provides essential services in a variety of opportunities. These worthy programs supplement government programs that support all ages in the community. Chose a subject and there is likely something out there that survives on charities. Although they have programs for your tax-deductible donations, they also have need for the philanthropist that has time to donate. That may include any skill level and any amount of time.

For instance, you may have a passion for dogs. The Southeastern Guide Dogs, with their campus in Palmetto, provides dog training for very special animals that assist the visually impaired. These dogs also are useful in providing companionship for soldiers returning from oversees combat. Over 2,800 dogs have assisted the needs of people in the United States. Although you may not initially be able to volunteer in the training program itself, there are volunteer needs as kennel helpers, grounds keepers and administrative support. And after 25 hours of service you may advance to training that may lead to working with the puppies or assisting in their Walkathon fund-raisers. Titus Herman, CEO, told me in REALTALK™ #64 that 1,100 volunteers are needed to successfully run the programs.

The Humane Society of Sarasota County needs volunteers for Stay-Cations, a program that places dogs in different environments to determine temperament. They also have needs for excursion buddies, feline friendship, matchmakers and involvement in fundraising activities. Lakewood Ranch has similar programs in their no-kill Humane Society of Lakewood Ranch, as does the Humane Society of Manatee County in Bradenton.

Mote Marine Aquarium and Save our Seabirds are two programs at Ken Thompson Park on City Island that are nationally recognized organizations devoted to the preservation of our aquatic wildlife. Volunteers are need at Save Our Seabirds to support the hospital staff or help with maintenance, administration and fundraising. After training volunteers also are put on a list to assist in rescuing seabirds. There are 1,600 volunteers at Mote Marine that assist in the aquariums, laboratories, dolphin and whale hospital, and even the annual Crystal Classic Master Sandsculpting Competition held on Siesta Key, this year November 11 through November 15.

If you are better suited to teach, you will find that volunteers are needed to spend time with adults and students in specialized reading programs. Almost 9,000 volunteers help young students learn to read outside of the classroom in the Sarasota County School District Volunteer and Partnership program. An enthusiasm to help is sometimes more valuable in this program than an expertise in a particular subject. Partners are needed to help tutor in science, history, math and reading.

The Florida, Take Stock in Children program that is in all 67 counties needs volunteers to mentor children in low-income families and prepare them for higher levels of education. There is a scholarship fund that provides graduates with tuition toward a four-year degree.

The Literacy Council of Sarasota needs tutors of the English language to help one-on-one or small group instruction in the basics of reading and writing. Since 1978 the Literacy Council of Sarasota has been providing reading support for young adults, singles and adults with families.

Volunteers are needed in the eight public libraries and technical services departments in Sarasota. There are adult volunteer coordinators you should contact in each of the libraries in order to get started assisting the librarians with a variety of functions.

Volunteer ushers are needed in each of the sporting events that are held here. A friendly disposition and basic knowledge of baseball is helpful to volunteer at Ed Smith Stadium for the Oriole’s or McKechnie Field in Bradenton for the Pirate’s spring training games. The summer league in Bradenton is a rewarding pastime that will just keep you active to help support these potential major leaguers.

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe
In REALTALK™ #101 this month Nate Jacobs told me ticket sales account for 45% of revenue needed. The WBBT needs donations and volunteers to continue their success in local theater.

The theater, as you are aware, is huge in Sarasota. The Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, Florida Studio Theatre, The Players, Asolo Repertory Theatre, Venice Theatre and more have volunteer programs to assist in administration, ticket and usher support. The Ringling Museum of Art needs volunteer support in these areas and also require help with guided tours.

With just about any interest in animals, health, school, sports or theater you can find volunteer opportunities here in Sarasota. Nearly every non-profit organization will have a program that you can get involved with. These programs help to make Sarasota a great place to live.

I listed four new quality homes last week on Longboat Key, two of them in Country Club Shores with direct boat access to Sarasota Bay and two on Longboat Club Road. Please contact me at (941) 387-1840 for an exclusive showing or if you have a property to sell or buy.

Eighth Annual Ringling International Arts Festival

by Roger Pettingell

Comedy, concerts, dance and conversations

Artists worldwide visit Sarasota for this four-day festival

Home of John and Mable Ringling, Ca' d'Zan
Ca’ d’Zan - Matt Haimovitz performs one of three Bach Suites cello concerts in the Ringling home.

An international flair, with themes. For the eighth year, the Ringling will bring together theatrical artists from around the world for their 2016 Ringling International Arts Festival. And as for a theme, it may be more subtle this year compared to 2015 when Ringling opened the Asian Arts Center with themed acts from that section of the globe. And although the opening night celebration on Thursday night contains a Brazilian theme, other performances are more earthly than geographical through the final show on Sunday.

Seven of the 12 events are multi-day performances so you can pick the day based on your schedule or desire to catch one of the five single-day events of lectures, guided tours, travel discussions, jazz after hours or venue of the Bach Suites cello concerts by Matt Haimovitz. For 60 minutes the acclaimed performer Haimovitz from Israel will present overtures by leading composers. His performances at the Ringling home, Ca’ d’Zan, on Friday and Saturday in the Huntington Gallery of the Museum are sold out, but his 2 p.m. concert on Sunday in the Historic Asolo Theatre has tickets available.

The opening ceremony Thursday night in the courtyard celebrates Brazilian dance and music, A Night in Brazil with the Dendê & Band. Your ticket includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres, light libations and will open a cash bar for the patrons.

Separate tickets are required for the other opening day performances. Before the opening ceremony choose from Doug Elkins dance choreography in the Asolo Repertory Theatre or the Eighth Blackbird: Hand Eye in the Hstoric Asolo Theatre. Both shows start at 7 p.m. on Thursday but also extend two more days. Doug Elkins features Shakespeare’s play, Othello, set to a modern score, Hapless Bizarre and Mo(or)town/Redux. The three-time Grammy Awards winning band from Chicago, Eighth Blackbird, performs Hand Eye. The six members blend percussions, piano, wind and stringed instruments into a show that expresses new music compositions with the energy of rock and roll music.

Also on Thursday in the Ringling Circus Museum is the show A Simple Space, performed by the Gravity & Other Myths circus troupe of seven from Australia. These stunning performances through Sunday of the festival include incredible acrobatics with a combination of physical endurance.

Asolo Repertory Theatre, Cook Theatre and Mertz Theatre
Asolo Repertory Theater - Some performances of the arts festival will be held here.

Thomas Monckton from New Zealand will delight audiences Friday through Sunday with his slapstick style of comedy on piano, reminiscent of Victor Borge. He will perform his shows, The Pianist, with Finland comedian Circo Aereo with shows at 5 p.m. on Friday and Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Asolo Repertory Theatre.

There is more comedy in the Asolo Repertory Theatre Saturday at 9 p.m. and Sunday at 5 p.m. as LMnO3 takes the stage with its B.A.N.G.S.: made in America show. Politely disguised as a dance performance, the three comedians include jokes that may test adult sensibilities. You may want to consider leaving the children with another performance.

Interested in travel? Put 17 Border Crossings by award winning actor and director Thaddeus Phillips on your ticket purchase list. This show in the Asolo Repertory Theatre on Friday and Saturday is not a travel lecture, yet a theatrical journey across international boundaries with a performance of customs and culture in each of the countries.

There are single-day tour and conversation events. On Friday there is a conversation with select artists led by RIAF curator of performances, Dwight Currie, in a free event at the Chao Lecture Hall in the Center for Asian Art. In this event, Passion & Process, the artists discuss topics of their interests. Another free event on Friday in the Bayfront Gardens is the guided tour Seeing in All Senses, an experience of this familiar garden with a new outlook that looks past the sense of sight.

Check the RIAF schedule, some free events may require a ticket. There is free admission to the Museum of Art and Circus Museum with each performance ticket purchased. Each performance purchase also includes free admission to the Lounge on the Lawn series Friday through Sunday. The long range forecast is for sunny skies each day, but this series is rain or shine. With the libations and light snacks you will mingle among patrons and artists while catching the musical talents of invited bands. Enjoy Latin music from Combo Vimana or the violin and guitar romance music from Hot Club of SRQ on Friday and Saturday. Zen Seraphine joins in on the musical trend Saturday with its themed Celtic and Hungarian performance. Seraphine is the sole act on Sunday. Your performance ticket also includes free entry to After-Hours Jazz that starts at 9 p.m. Friday with Marc Mannino on guitar and Saturday with Matthew Falgowsi on keyboard. You can also save 20% on tickets by purchasing a block of seven tickets or 10% with a purchase of four to six performance tickets. Purchase tickets and check show times through their website.

We are getting closer to peak season and have listed six new homes for sale on Longboat Key and one in Lakewood Ranch. Please contact me at (941) 387-1840 for an exclusive showing of any home listed or if you have a property to sell or buy.

Improving the local economy with good local schools

by Roger Pettingell

Sarasota high schools achieve high marks

Academic, athletic, parochial and military options available

Booker High School in Sarasota
Booker High School - One of eight high schools located in the northern Sarasota district.

Last month I wrote about the many fine colleges in the area, the high schools are stellar too. The students that graduate from public schools in Sarasota achieve higher in college placement and graduate a higher percentage of students than many school districts. Private schools provide excellent education for students, including St. Stephens Episcopal School in Bradenton, that is the ninth ranked private school in the state as reported by Niche.com. In sports, parents from around the country enroll their student-athletes in IMG Academy in Bradenton. Sarasota even has a high school military academy.

Public school districts in Florida are generally divided by counties so the largest districts in the United States reside here. Those include the Miami-Dade County District, fifth in the nation with over 347,000 enrolled students. Broward, Hillsborough, Orange, Palm Beach and Duval counties are in the top 25 as rated by 2010 attendance records. In the 2014-15 school year Sarasota recorded 41,910 students in its final count.

The county is divided into eight public high school zones, some of which are ranked high in the state and in the nation. Increasingly the district school board looks for budget items that divert classroom expenditures. To convert money for teacher salaries and supplies the board has created innovative programs. Recently the district has undergone an energy makeover to make it more efficient. The savings are substantial, reducing their energy costs to 96 cents per square foot. That is 24 cents below the state average. Its retrofit to LED lighting and Chiller ice tanks for thermal energy storage have saved the district scarce dollars that it is diverting to the schools for classroom expenses.

Pine View School is ranked number one in the state and seventh nationally with a 100% graduation rate and has a ranking of 100 in college readiness. They received the gold medal award from U.S. News & World Report. Pine View, located in Osprey, has an enrollment of 2,180 students with a 17:1 ratio of students to teachers. The school received a ranking of 10 out of 10 by GreatShools.org. The unique curriculum combines an independent study program with traditional classes.

Riverview High School in the city of Sarasota received a 9 rating by GreatSchools. It is the largest school in the county with 2,654 students enrolled. With 161 teachers the student to teacher ratio is 16:1. This school excels in athletics, graduating five professional baseball players and three professional football players. The current head football coach, Todd Johnson, played safety for the Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams and Buffalo Bills in the span of 2004-2007. The baseball team has won eight state championships, the latest in 2007, and has won state titles in softball, tennis and boys golf.

Overall the county is listed fifth best in the state by Niche.com with A grades in academics and student culture. Venice Senior High School received an 8 GreatSchools rating and also excels in athletics with four state volleyball and an equal number of baseball titles. The football program won the state championship in 2000 and was ranked seventh in the nation that year.

Sarasota High School is one of the oldest schools in the county, first established in 1913. With over 2,600 students and 139 teachers, the ratio is 19:1. The Sailor Circus began at the school in 1950 as a physical education class, but started the year before as a half-time football performance. Sailor Circus is now operated under the Circus Arts Conservatory but is still known as The Greatest Little Show On Earth. Professional golfers Paul Azinger and Scott Dunlap are alumni from the school that has graduated 15 professional baseball players over the years. Famous performer Pee-Wee Herman graduated in 1970 as Paul Rubenfeld.

North Port High School with a GreatSchools rating of 6 and Booker High School in Sarasota with a rating of 5 are two more fine Sarasota public schools. Oak Park School in Sarasota has a 6:1 student to teacher ratio, in comparison one of the smallest schools in the county with 337 students enrolled.

The county invested $16 million in 2008 for the career-focused Suncoast Polytechnical High School with studies from biomedical engineering to computer gaming. U.S. News & World Report gave this school a silver rating. From its inception, the school is limited to 600 students and currently has enrolled 528 with 26 full-time teachers.

Sarasota Military Academy (SMA)
The Sarasota Military Academy (SMA) with its JROTC Black Knight Raiders have won national competitions.

Integrity, honor and respect are key in academics and student participation at the Sarasota Military Academy (SMA). The charter school opened in 2002 and currently enrolls 1,000 students. The JROTC Black Knight Raiders have won national competitions with event testing in 5K runs, litter carries, rope-bridge building, tire flips and endurance events. Graduating seniors are accepted into higher education programs at a 90% rate.

In 2016 Niche.com ranked Florida private schools and St. Stephen's Episcopal School fifth for best private school teachers, ninth for best private schools and fifth for best Christian high schools. It received A grades in academics, teachers, clubs and outcomes. The school touts its record that 100% of its graduates attend colleges with four-year degree programs. It has also graduated 33 national merit scholarship finalists since 2005. The school affiliated with the Episcopal Church was founded in 1970 and currently enrolls 800 students in grades pre-kindergarten through the senior class in high school.

Division I colleges look to IMG Academy when recruiting athletes for their sports programs. IMG trains student-athletes in golf, tennis, soccer, baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse, track and cross country. A long list of professional athletes have graduated from IMG, founded in 1978. In 2012 IMG Pendleton School changed its name to the current IMG Academy.

Combining the diversity of programs at the high school level and excellent higher education options, Sarasota continues to attract parents who pursue the best school options for their children. Better schools also attract quality businesses that improves the local economy. All in all, the real estate market benefits. Last week I listed The Belle of the Beach, a private beachfront chateau in Siesta Key with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths.
