Harbor Acres Real Estate for Sale – Sarasota, Florida 34239

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.

Harbor Acres

Among those that still operate is the Sarasota Medical Hospital where many doctors took up residence at Harbor Acres. Because of this the community has also earned the charming moniker of “Doctor Acres.” Owing to its strategic location too, Harbor Acres became a sought-after Sarasota waterfront home base of well-to-do families, professionals and business executives who value its friendly neighborhood ambience and the charming waterfront lifestyle it offers.

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 elite listings here are those that are found among upscale Sarasota waterfront homes for sale. 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.

The advantageous bayfront location of Harbor Acres enabling access to popular water-based activities at the Gulf Coast is coupled with the property’s proximity to schools like Southside Elementary, Brookside Middle School, and Sarasota High. Shopping for necessities and luxuries are convenient at a nearby Publix Super Market, at the Merchants Street District and at the chic St. Armands Circle just a few minutes across the Ringling Causeway. The neighborhood’s locality also teems with such restaurants as Mozaic, Mediterraneo and Selva Grill. Sports pursuits in any of the nearby golf courses can easily shift to the arts and entertainment such as those accessible at the Ringling Museum and the Van Wezel.
