Waterfront real estate is highly sough-after in Southwest Florida, particularly homes located on or near the barrier islands in the Sarasota Bay. Aqualane Estates in Sarasota is a high-end neighborhood where most single-family homes enjoy waterfront views, and where all residents have either private or community dock access to the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway.
The “aqua-lanes” are eponymous canals that are located right across the water from Siesta Key. Each canal is also a dead end street that finishes at the water’s edge. Most of the 100 homes in Aqualane Estates face the Sarasota Bay waters and Siesta Key, or they are located alongside the canals. A few homes are located further inland.
Aqualane Estates is not a planned community, and thus home shoppers will find a variety of architectural designs, from Florida ranch houses to the Mediterranean style that is commonly found across Southwest Florida. The home sites were generously parceled out in the 1960s, which means that even residents in the smallest bungalows enjoy 2,478 square feet of living space. Three-bedroom and three-bathroom homes are priced under $600K. A three-story bay front estate built on 4,105 square feet can be negotiated for under $1.8M. Homes in this neighborhood are likely to appreciate due to their choice location.
Boaters and fishing enthusiasts will feel right at home in Aqualane Estates. The neighborhood is just minutes away from the Stickney Point bridge connecting Sarasota with a quiet portion of Siesta Key and the famous sugary-white sands of its beaches. Downtown Sarasota is a short drive north on the Tamiami Trail. Many amenities are nearby, from golf and tennis to the outdoors, culture, and the arts.
Young residents of Aqualane Estates are served by Phillippi Shores Elementary, Brookside Middle and Riverview High, all part of the Sarasota Public Schools District.
