Avondale Homes for Sale – Sarasota, Florida 34236

Avondale Homes for Sale

Avondale is a unique community perfectly blending vintage homes with new construction which has penetrated its historic West-of-the-Trail neighborhood. This community was first platted in 1914 during which it was set for affordable housing and called Avondale Heights. This development tack, however, didn’t catch on.

The property was re-platted in 1923 amidst the first Florida land boom. In addition, the community, shortened its name to Avondale, and it was repositioned in the upscale segment of the Sarasota real estate market with better results.

The community’s prime location just south of downtown Sarasota and adjacent west of the Tamiami Trail helped mold sustained demand of Avondale homes for sale from high-end buyers.

A “Goldilocks Zone”

Avondale Homes for Sale

The acreage of the property is triangular in shape, bordered south by Bahia Street and west by Osprey Avenue. Lincoln Drive stretching diagonally eastwards to the Tamiami Trail borders Avondale to the north. Notably, the historic luxury homes in the community of Lincoln Park corner this northern area next to the Hudson Bayou.

Despite its proximity to downtown and the busy Tamiami Trail, Avondale has a quiet and laid-back setting. This is thanks to the mature oak trees, tropical palms, and shrubbery that provide buffer and shade to its streets. The well-landscaped sidewalks on both sides of the streets add to the charm of the community.

Avondale is a close-knit neighborhood, with its residents having a strong affinity with their community. Membership in the Avondale Residents Association (ARA), which was established in 1988, is voluntary, and annual ARA dues is just $20.

ARA is active in promoting Avondale’s unique identity and maintaining the community’s beautiful environment. Amongst the association’s initiatives which helps preserve value of Avondale properties are oak replanting, installation of traffic-calming speed bumps, and the installation of a historical marker. Replicas of ceramic urns with lion accents originally set in Avondale’s entrances in the 1920s were also installed as a reminder of the community’s quaint history.
