Harbor Acres

It won’t be difficult to search for luxury waterfront real estate in Sarasota, Florida, as one is prominently located south of the city’s downtown just off Orange Avenue. This property, Harbor Acres, is a well-established community composed of 166 single family homes many of which are located either fronting Sarasota Bay or next to a canal developed for direct water access to the residents. The neighborhood has an impressive array of residences with architectures in Mediterranean and contemporary style.

The old Florida style homes in the community are vivid reminders to the development of this Sarasota waterfront real estate in the 1920s on the heels of the growth of southwest Florida as a vacation hotspot during those years. The property largely consists of two tiny peninsulas created by dredging and filling canals in its bayfront area. Its original developers, which reportedly included the last elected mayor of Sarasota, Earnest Young, couldn’t have picked a better site. The immediate vicinity of Harbor Acres and neighboring districts were also developed to include schools, churches, banks, hotels, theaters and many health care facilities.

The property values in the community are unmistakably upscale with even the older residences commanding prices in the million-dollar level. A residence built in 1949 with four bedrooms and four baths and a half in its floor area of 4,090 square feet can an asking price of $1.95 million.

The price tag of a Harbor Acre property having a full bay frontage can hit the $6.9 million level with its five-bedroom, five baths, and two half baths in a total floor area of 7,623 square feet.
