In recent years, residential development in Downtown Sarasota has been modernized and transformed. A few of the apartment buildings and low-rise condominium neighborhoods of the past are being replaced by gleaming high-rise towers similar to the beachfront buildings you see in Siesta Key.
The high-rise condo towers were not part of the original vision of circus magnate John Ringling, a millionaire who wanted to transform Sarasota into a coastal village similar to the Mediterranean communities he fell in love with when he visited Italy. What Ringling had in mind was exactly what prospective home buyers will find at Burns Court Villas.
Located just west of the Laurel Park District near Downtown Sarasota, Burns Court is one of the most beautifully appointed private communities in Southwest Florida. In mid-2017, four units in Burns Court Villas were listed at prices ranging between $995K and $1.1 million; these are likely some of the best deals in Sarasota for various reasons: first of all, the 23 villas at Burns Court feature true Mediterranean architectural style that is reflected in the exteriors, courtyards, fountains, balconies, verandas, and gardens.
Everything about Burns Court is decorative: the three-bedroom and three-bathroom units feature luxurious extras such as gourmet kitchens, elaborate foyers, gas fireplaces, wood floors, garden bathtubs, granite counters, and more. The units on the second and third floors look out into the courtyard with manicured landscaping, and the amenities include a swimming pool with spa.
Entering Burns Court is like being transported to Costa del Sol in Spain, Tuscany or Civitavecchia in Italy; moreover, this neighborhood is located just a few blocks away from the Sarasota Bay and Bayfront Park, which makes it seem as if it belong on the cover of a travel magazine. This community is located next door to a movie theater and is within walking distance of a Whole Foods Market. The stylish Lido Key and St Armands Circle are close enough for a bike ride. It is a 20 minute drive to get to the white sandy beaches in Siesta Key.
