Bird Key

Bird Key is quintessential Sarasota. An island set in the middle of Sarasota Bay, it was first developed by circus magnate John Ringling back in the 1920’s as a retreat for his own family. Today it glitters as one of the finest neighborhoods in town. Thanks to an extensive network of canals, more than two thirds of Bird Key’s 500 homes are on the water, many with dockage for large yachts. Spectacular views abound, both of the downtown skyline and of the lush mangrove islands that dot the bay. Bird Key enjoys what may be the best location in Sarasota. It is five minutes to downtown’s shops, restaurants, and cultural activities and even less to glamorous St Armand’s Circle and the white sand beach of Lido Key. The Ringling Causeway, built in 2004, replaced a drawbridge and now offers convenient, unimpeded access to all the pleasures of Sarasota. The bridge also offers a perfect jogging path with a spectacular view of the city and the Bay. The fashionable manmade island neighborhood is a boater’s paradise that attracts an assortment of residents. Here, they discover the pleasures of waterfront living accompanied by the exceptional amenities of the Bird Key Yacht Club, which offers a unique social and recreational experience for its members and friends. Residences at Bird Key can be thought of in three categories – homes on the Bay, Canal homes, and non-waterfront, Garden homes. This popular neighborhood ranges from $950,000 – $10 million Thank you!
