Downtown, consisting of homes and
condos for sale in Sarasota
, is the heart of Sarasota County. Beautifully situated along Sarasota Bay and nestled inside the perimeters of Fruitville Road (State Road 780), School Avenue, and Mound Street (US Route 41), this small portion of Sarasota is big a deal. Booming with cultural marvels like the ballet, the opera, several theaters, fine art galleries, comedy clubs, and the circus, there’s much to be inspired by. If you long for culture and desire a calendar stacked with black tie-worthy arts and charity events, without ever losing sight of the water, downtown is for you. Flip flops by day, dress shoes by night. Downtown truly is the most stunning collision of refinement and relaxation.
Downtown also plays host to multiple parades and holiday block parties. Perhaps the most notable party is the Pineapple Drop on New Year’s Eve. A spectacle of celebration, the outdoor event is free of charge leaving you the means to make a reservation at one of Downtown’s many savory restaurants. The same block also puts on a well-liked and highly attended Farmer’s Market on Saturdays. On the days when there isn’t something specific going on, simply enjoy strolling Main Street where you’ll find numerous boutiques, high-end shopping, dive bars, galleries, salons, eateries, and much more. And never fear, when you’ve grown tired of the cityscape, head west to the Marina where sparkling views have been expecting you.
The best part about Downtown real estate is that, in most cases, a view comes standard. A predominately high-rise Downtown Sarasota Condo dominated region, you have the advantage of selecting a city or a bay vantage point. With more new construction development than the city has seen in ten years, buyers have the choice of brand new or newly renovated as even older properties are feeling the pressure to improve to compete – both of which are good for you.
