Some of the neighborhoods of Siesta Key barrier island are not so easy to find; they are secluded enclaves hidden by lush tropical vegetation and mature trees, but they offer some of the most spectacular real estate in Southwest Florida. Oyster Cove is a waterfront community of just 10 custom-built homes located on the bay side of the island, and all of them evoke luxury, elegance, and considerable privacy.
At Oyster Cove, you do not have to worry about traffic cutting across the neighborhood. The discreet entrance on Midnight Pass Road ends up in a cul-de-sac and a community dock that faces Little Sarasota Bay. The entire community is buffered by foliage that is carefully maintained through the homeowners association. The architectural styles include Coastal, Modern, Key West, and Mediterranean; all homes occupy very large lots and some provide water views of the bay from third floor balconies.
All homes in Oyster Cove are worth at least a million dollars. It is unusual to see more than one home listed at the same time, but such was the case in November 2020, when two four-bedroom estates each offering more than 3,200 square feet of living space came on the market together. One of these properties is a Mediterranean mansion with amazing interior decoration and attractive features such as a poolside Tiki bar, an outdoor kitchen, and extra-large media room. This particular listing was priced at $1.29M; a larger and more elegant Modernist mansion closer to the water was listed for $1.49M.
Oyster Cove provides a secluded feeling of living in a tropical island, but it is not an isolated community by any means. Once you drive past the gate onto Midnight Pass Road, a small shopping district at Crescent Beach offers two grocery stores and a seafood restaurant along with an oyster bar. Driving across the Stickney Point Bridge will lead you to the Sarasota Pavilion shopping center, where you can find a Publix supermarket, a Bed Bath & Beyond, and Walgreens.
Crescent Beach is just a couple of blocks away from Oyster Cove; other nearby attractions include various golf courses in South Sarasota, the museums and art galleries closer to the downtown district, and Oscar Scherer Park to the south.
