St. Armand’s Circle should be on every visitor’s list for a complete vision and appreciation of the Sarasota lifestyle. Besides, it’s fun! The Circle is a collaboration of unique shops, cafes, salons, jewelers, art galleries, gourmet restaurants, elegant boutiques, and artist’s shops, just minutes from downtown Sarasota. It’s on the path to Lido Key and Longboat Key and whether you visit regularly as a resident, or for dinner or an early evening cocktail as a visitor, it’s a beautiful venue for all ages. There is a charming ambience to the Circle, filled with shops and restaurants featuring striped awnings, swaying palms, brick walkways, climbing bougainvillea, and pots and pots of flowers and shrubs along the way. Located within walking distance to Lido Key, you’ll feel the breezes of the Gulf of Mexico as you dine al fresco at numerous restaurants on the Circle or walk leisurely around the circle, peering into individual stores and galleries.
Homes on St. Armand’s generally range in the higher price range of Sarasota real estate, harking to the age old “location, location, location.” Most of the luxury homes here claim waterfront views, as well as docks for boating and luxurious pools and cabanas. Sprinkled among the larger homes are Spanish Mediterranean homes built in the 1920’s and reminiscent of John Ringling’s interest in the architectural style. Prices range from just under $1 million to several million.
On Lido Key, real estate is mostly given to condominium complexes, many on the Gulf of Mexico and offering not only a resort lifestyle, but stunning views as well. Condos range from the low $300’s to several million. But Lido Shores, for the clientele notably searching for the ultimate lifestyle with the ultimate views in the ultimate home, is the place to be. Views of New Pass and stunning architecture line the streets and Westway Drive, in particular, is the street of dreams for the buyer seeking prestige, beauty, architectural distinction and their own private oasis.
