Paradise Shores

Just go where the doctors are. This is one tip that many home buyers often get in searching for luxury Sarasota homes. Given this cryptic but smart advice, which is essentially founded on the high public regard for the medical profession, Paradise Shores should easily be a favored home buying destination. Many medical professionals reside in this community as it is located an easy walking distance from the world-renowned Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

Residential buyers following doctors’ home choices, however, isn’t the only the stimulus that put Paradise Shores among the premier destinations in searching for luxury waterfront Sarasota properties. This community, originally platted in 1953, exudes the charm of a tranquil and quiet waterfront neighborhood.

Friendly neighborhoods

Paradise Shores

It is surrounded by historic communities, such as Harbor Acres, McClellan Park and Cherokee Park, whose development could be traced back to the 1920s. Many of the residents in Paradise Shores and its nearby communities are composed not only of doctors and medical practitioners. This community’s residents also consist of other professionals, businessmen, local old-timers, retirees and empty-nesters, contributing to friendly and amiable neighborhoods.

The peaceful and friendly waterside setting of Paradise Shores is complemented by a serene ambiance afforded by the lush, decades-old tropical trees serving as canopies over the narrow streets in the locality. Fittingly, the streets that meander around this community are named after birds—Blue Heron, Mallard, Oriole, Sandpiper and Sparrow—contributing to the overall charm of Paradise Shores.

Prime local attractions

Paradise Shores

Paradise Shores also attracts keen market attention as a result of its strategic location west at the bayfront side of the South Tamiami Trail. This proximity to the Sarasota Bay and to local amenities, including those in the downtown and nearby Gulf Coast beaches, provides a lot of distinct advantages. As a result, local realtors call the locality “West of the Trail” communities to set it apart as a prime destination for those in search of Sarasota homes for sale.

Generally, this area is bounded by Bay Road on the south and by Mound Street on the north. A relatively small and private area, West of the Trail features many local attractions such as the Historic District and the Southside Village. Holding fort here, besides the Sarasota Memorial Hospital, are quaint shops, boutiques, clubs and restaurants, such as Sam Snead’s American Grill, Morton’s Gourmet Market and Libby’s Café.

Homes for keeps
