Sarasota has a few examples of real estate development envisioned by female pioneers. In the early part of the 20th century, Bertha Palmer was not the only woman involved in suburban planning and residential development; Daisietta and Katherine McClellan, originally from Massachusetts, fell in love with Sarasota and decided to acquire 56 acres of land west of the Tamiami Trail. From the start, the McClellan sisters wanted to build a luxurious neighborhood that took full advantage of the lush Florida vegetation, and this is a characteristic that remains to this day.
McClellan Park in Sarasota is ideal for home buyers interested in stately and historic neighborhoods where property values are impervious to periods of downturn. The neighborhood runs from Hyde Park Street south to Cunliff Lane and all the way west to Oriole Drive. The homes here are spectacular; many of them have been carefully renovated to retain their original architectural styles, and this means gorgeous Spanish Colonial, Mediterranean, Victorian, American Craftsman, and even Florida ranch-style properties.
To get an idea of the pricing in this community, a historic two-bedroom bungalow with more than 1,200 square feet of living space was listed for $439K in March 2019. A seven-bedroom Craftsman mansion with nine bathrooms built on more than 10,000 square feet of interior was listed under $4 million. Quite a few of the homes in McClellan Park are candidates for the National Register of Historic Places, and there are even a couple of lots available for development near the waterfront. Building a new home at McClellan Park is like securing a place in Sarasota’s real estate history.
Residents of McClellan Park enjoy living just blocks away from the heart of Downtown Sarasota and the restaurant district just south of Memorial Hospital. The Siesta Row and Bay Street shopping centers are about five minutes away, and driving to the white sandy beaches of Siesta Key takes less than 20 minutes. For families with school-age children, Southside Elementary is just blocks away on Webber Street.
