In the years that followed the Allied Victory over in World War II, a major wave of prosperity and residential development was experienced across Sarasota, which resulted in the creation of the Sarasota School of Architecture, a method of home building that is both functional and stylish. In the 1980s, one of the architects of the Sarasota School designed Crooked Creek, a low-rise condominium community that looks like a serene college campus hidden within exuberant landscaping.
Located to the east of the Tamiami Trail and in the vicinity of the Red Bug Slough Reserve, Crooked Creek in Sarasota is one of those neighborhoods that your real estate agent has to help you find.
