West of the Trail
The most desirable neighborhoods on the mainland of Sarasota
Historic, prestigious, and highly sought after only begin to describe West of the Trail Sarasota real estate. The charming early 1900’s era homes, majestic properties and estates that make up West of the Trail sit on the Gulf side of South Tamiami Trail. The area is bordered by Mound Street to the north and Bay Road to the south. Architectural styles vary widely within the lovely enclaves and feature contemporary, Spanish Mediterranean, renovated bungalows, and bay front mansions alike. Even the names of the enclaves bring to mind something very special – Cherokee Park, McClennan Park, Oyster Bay, and Harbor Acres to name only a few. Some of the area’s finest schools can be found here and there is easy access to great shopping, the Downtown district, hospital and other health care, entertainment, and the beaches.
The many faces of West of Trail real estate all represent the true meaning of “location, location, location” in Sarasota. Aside from easy access to so much of what the region offers, it is a haven for professional families, established attorneys and physicians and retirees seeking an active neighborhood with lush parks and tree lined streets, deep boating water along the bay front lots.
