We have lived and loved Sarasota for 22 years.
Our single family neighborhood is quiet and welcoming, yet convenient to everything, especially the beach and downtown. We sit under beautiful trees and are surrounded by tropical vegetation and floral gardens.
There is a dog walking path next to a stream which is next to our house.
Within a few blocks, we are fortunate to have Arlington Park, which has an Olympic sized pool, playground, tennis courts, gym with pickleball, basketball, etc.
Our location is convenient to all of Sarasota. There is bus service nearby, but most drive.
Other things to note
We have a lovely little geriatric dog who will be around. She is deaf and nearly blind but gets around fine and will probably want to meet you. When not with us, she remains in the house in our area, not in the guest suite. We are careful not to reposition the furniture, as she has memorized placement inside and out.
POSITIVELY NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE OR AROUND THE PROPERTY
Mutual respect for privacy as we live on the other side of the house.
Lock up when leaving
No wet bathing suits on the furniture
We love dogs but they must be trained
Sharing our lives for 50 years, enjoying 3 married adult children and their families, including 6 grandchildren, we are fortunate to say that life is rich. Living in Sarasota, FL, affords the lush beauty of the flora, fauna and sea. We enjoy a vast array of arts experiences including local music and cultural enrichment with ballet, theater, etc. We escape summer heat by traveling and staying of the grid in our little cabin in upstate New York. At all times, our surroundings offer amazing subject matter for our hobby of photography.
