Lido Shores

Lido Shores should easily come out on the top ranks of searches on luxury real estate in Sarasota, Florida. It is located on a choice slice of Lido Key, one of the barrier islands separating Sarasota Bay from the Gulf of Mexico, which has earned world renown for their superb beaches and resort amenities. An equally charming island, Longboat Key, lies immediately north of Lido; both are accessible from the Sarasota mainland via the John Ringling Causeway.

This is an island subdivision with all properties having deeded beach access. Hence, even those living in Lido Shores’ off-water homes can readily enjoy the community’s truly private beach. There are about 150 homes in this upscale neighborhood, ranging from older residences constructed in the late 1940s to those of more contemporary builds. The floor plans of these homes measure from 1,100 to more than 9,000 square feet. Most of the inland homes have private pools, while those that are the waterfront have boat docks or piers.
