Harbor Acres Real Estate for Sale – Sarasota, Florida 34239

Harbor Acres

Consider Harbor Acres as a strong contender should players in the Southwest Florida real estate industry decide on their Hall of Fame communities. There are many things going for this vintage luxury community to land a berth on such a list.

Foremost, it is located just off west of the Tamiami Trail and right next to Sarasota Bay. It offers waterfront properties which have been the apple of the eyes of developers since the 1920s. Its location is within what realtors call “West of Trail,” the strategic and charming strip of land between the bay and the Tamiami.

Prized sailboat water

Harbor Acres

Exquisite too is one of the best descriptions of the development of Harbor Acres. It has several natural peninsulas extending into the bay which served as potent template in developing the community. The peninsulas’ natural canals were dredged to create “sailboat water,” a real estate jargon for water deep enough for a large sailboat’s keel. This is a prized feature among waterfront Sarasota homes for sale, particularly among home buyers whose lifestyles are anchored on the joys of the sea. About a hundred residences of Harbor Acres benefit from this treasured residential property offering.

Another big plus for this opulent neighborhood is its proximity to the Hillview District. Also known as Flower Streets, this locality is host to classy clubs, shops and dining venues, such as Sam Snead’s, 5 O’Clock Club, and the Pacific Rim Restaurant serving sushi and authentic Thai dishes.

Also a short distance east of Harbor Acres, the choices for shopping, dining and life and leisure activities are even more diverse at the Southside Village. For arts and cultural options, as well as more shops, clubs, restaurants and life and leisure centers, the Sarasota downtown is just a short drive north of Harbor Acres.

Doctors’ Acres

Harbor Acres

Notably, nearby Southside Village is likewise host to the Sarasota Memorial Hospital. This health care facility renowned worldwide was established in 1925. With this community’s close proximity to the hospital, it is understandable why so many physicians call Harbor Acres home. Local residents often refer to this waterfront community as the “Doctors Acres.” Because of its many attractions, this bayfront subdivision eventually became a popular haven for empty-nesters, retirees, professionals and business executives.

A tour of Harbor Acres will reveal luxury homes whose residents enjoy breathtaking views of the bay, the Ringling causeway bridge, Bird Key and the northern tip of Siesta Key world famous for its enticing white sand beaches. Current buying opportunities in this community come few and could be counted in one’s fingers.

The choices of luxury Sarasota homes for sale here include both new and vintage homes, some of which date back to the 1940s. Their asking prices are mostly on the million-dollar level, topping at around the $9-million mark. The value of Harbor Acres’ properties below the million-dollar range is in the land and the opportunity to build a new luxury home amid many exciting amenities which truly sum up the qualities of a Hall of Fame community.
