Bellora Houses of Indian Beach for Sale

Bellora is a small residential development carved in the Indian Beach area west of U.S. 41 and north of downtown Sarasota. Although deed restrictions cover Indian Beach, Bellora’s developer secured a permission to build new custom homes in this historic locality which is host to some of the oldest local neighborhoods.

Bellora occupies an eight-acre parcel erstwhile called Emerald Forest, which was previously planned for a 23-home community named the Houses of Indian Beach. Its development stalled during the Great Recession and was again pursued sometime in 2015 under the banner of Legacy Builders on the West Coast.
