Luxury Waterfront Properties on Siesta Key

Rated the number one beach in the nation by Dr. Beach in 2011

Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master Sand Sculpting Competition winner for 2012Originally named Sarasota Key by early cartographers, only a portion of Siesta Key is in Sarasota city limits. The rest of the island is devoted to beaches, recreation, dining and shopping.

Rated as the number one 2011 beach in the nation by Dr. Beach, Siesta Key has plenty of opportunities to purchase prime luxury waterfront real estate. Because the sand is 99% pure quartz, walking on it with bare feet is soft and cool. Combine that with turquoise water and other beach amenities Siesta Key properties are great for year round or seasonal residency.

During the 2000 census a little under 8,000 housing units were recorded. The figure combines both condominiums and single-family residences on 2.4 square miles of land which represents a comfortable mix of privacy and proximity to shopping and restaurants.

Siesta Key is one of the barrier islands separated from the mainland Florida by Roberts Bay. Siesta Road to the north and Clark Road to the south connect the island to Sarasota. The area is serviced by air travel with Sarasota/Bradenton Airport (SRQ), Venice Municipal Airport (VNC), Tampa International Airport (TPA) and St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport (PIE).

With easy access to Sarasota residents can explore a rich culture that this city has to offer. Sarasota was ranked as the top art destination in the nation for small cities by readers of American Style Magazine in 2012. Bradenton to the north was rated second by readers of the magazine. This distinguishes these two adjoining cities as one of the top cultural areas in United States.

If golf is your interest, a short drive to Sarasota uncovers a rich area for fine green grass courses. Tennis is a popular recreational sport on the island. If you own a sail boat or yacht, consider membership in the Harbor Towers Yacht & Racquet Club. With all the water that surrounds you there are plenty of opportunities for beach or deep sea fishing.

Expect a healthy living lifestyle with daytime temperatures above 70 degrees in the winter and moderate temperatures in the summer as breezes from the gulf account for a pleasant climate. This is a good combination for residents. The rich and famous have found Siesta Key as an opportunity to escape from the daily hustle of their hectic lives.
