The big story in Sarasota real estate at the moment is all the new homes being built in old neighborhoods. Particularly in the West of Trail area, infill houses are replacing those 60 and 70 year cottages and bungalows that time has rendered obsolete—unless you do a major renovation and double their size.
Most of the new homes are placed randomly among the older ones. But there are a few mini-developments, and the most notable is Granada Park. It’s tucked away on a four acre plus piece of land near the corner of Bay Street and Osprey Avenue. It’s a great location—you can ride your bike to both Siesta Key and Southside Village, and the surrounding neighborhood—Granada—is famously charming, with mid-sized older homes in all styles.
