Sapphire Shores Homes for Sale – Sarasota, Florida 34234

Sapphire Shores Homes for Sale

Sapphire Shores was developed during the Florida housing boom in the 1920s, with circus magnate John Ringling no less, behind its establishment. Ringling, with the best choices of Sarasota real estate available to him then, set this community on the northern shore of town bordered east by the Tamiami Trail.

Offering spectacular views of the bay and the barrier islands, Sapphire Shores turned out as one of the prestigious luxury real estate developments north of downtown Sarasota. Its crown jewel is Ringling’s well- preserved historic mansion Cà d’Zan originally built in the 1920s. Next to it are two other local attractions—the Mable Rose Garden and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.

A yacht basin, which Ringling himself had ordered built, is likewise one of the defining character of Sapphire Shores. A pocket park created along the basin’s shore serves as a venue for local arts and music festivals to add to the charm of living in this community. The homes for sale at Sapphire Shores are noted too for the palm trees and majestic oaks that dominate their landscaping.

Architectural Melting Pot

Sapphire Shores Homes for Sale

Sapphire Shores further defines its historic character in its 13 original homes that still stand in the community. Owned and built originally by some friends of Ringling, these residences are a mix of Mediterranean, Moroccan, and Italianate architectural designs, which were the only specific styles allowed in the deed restrictions when community was first established.

These deed restrictions, however, were lifted later, and as a result, the community’s home designs have become more eclectic. Florida ranch houses and bungalows were notably amongst the first styles added to the original mix. In more recent years, some new homes have been built in this community to replace the old residences. In addition, some renovations and updates of existing residences have also been undertaken.

Some of the community’s remodeled homes put on the Sarasota real estate market come with price tags in the $600s. These residences typically feature floor plans measuring about 1,700 square feet set for three bedrooms and two baths.

Upper-end market listings in Sapphire Shores are million-dollar Sarasota homes for sale directly located on the bayfront. Many have their own private boat docks that could bring the properties’ price quotes at between $1.2 million and $2.7 million.

Neighborhood Assets

Sapphire Shores Park is one asset that contributes to the values of the community’s residential properties. Aside from hosting special events as well as a perfect spot for watching the sunset, this park also features a playground and canoe/kayak launch that unlocks to paddlers many of the natural wonders along Sarasota Bay.

The Sarasota Jungle Gardens is yet another point of interest near Sapphire Shores. Residents and visitors are drawn to this place by its unique collection of plants and exotic animals, pink flamingos amongst them.

Proximity to the arts and culture hubs of Sarasota as well as easy access to the city’s downtown attractions further enhances the marketability of Sapphire Shores’ luxury real estate. Besides the Ringling Museum, the community is also close to the Ringling School of Art and Design, the campus of the New College of Florida, and the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall.
