The historic neighborhoods of Sarasota have a special place among real estate investors. The Southwest Florida housing market has experienced its ups and downs throughout the years, but historic communities like Bungalow Hill in Sarasota have managed to weather the downturns and retain their value.
Bungalow Hill has a rich history dating back to the days before World War II. The subdivision once sought independence from Sarasota, but things did not work out as planned for the residents who hoped to escape city taxes. In the end, Bungalow Hill became one of the few elevated neighborhoods in the city with less than 60 home sites, most of them built in the American Craftsman style of residential design.
The hilltop subdivision is just south of the Hudson Bayou and within walking distance of Sarasota’s downtown arts and culture district. Homes in Bungalow Hill range from cozy two-bedroom single-family residences built on 784 square feet to imposing six-bedroom mansions influenced by Southern Plantation design. Prices start at $479K to $2.6M, a clear example of how historic neighborhoods in Sarasota tend to retain their value.
Bungalow Hill residents enjoy mature trees, leafy boulevards and ample outdoor spaces. Neighbors can find all the comforts and convenience of modern life by walking downhill to downtown Sarasota. Two major shopping and entertainment centers, Crossroads and Southside Village, are within walking distance. Bay Island Park is a short drive north and the famous Siesta Key beaches are just minutes south. Tamiami Trail, also known as US 41, connects Bungalow Hill with the rest of Florida, including Tampa to the north and Miami to the southeast.
High school students can walk to nearby Sarasota High. Younger students can attend Southside Elementary and Brookside Middle.
