One of the most attractive communities in Southwest Florida is discreetly tucked away just south of the Tuscana district of Sarasota. Ashley is an upscale neighborhood first envisioned in the early 1990s; it was intended to be a small collection of custom-built luxury homes that would evoke envy among all Sarasota homeowners, and this has been thoroughly accomplished thanks to the talent of local developers.
Ashley is blessed with many lakes, ponds and densely mature forest sections. A large portion of Philippi Creek cuts across the neighborhood, thus providing water views for many of the New England, Key West and Mediterranean mansions. This is a community where most properties feature more than 3,000 square feet of interior. This is a community where you can find an imposing Mediterranean mansion with eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms listed for $1.1 million.
To get an idea of the phenomenal value appreciation at Ashley, it helps to consider that one of the few remaining lots in the neighborhood was listed for $349K in 2018. A three-bedroom spec home under construction in 2019 was listed for $1.34 million. Most of the properties at Ashley have been developed by respected builders such as Arthur Rutenberg, Lee Wetherington and Peregrine Homes; they are routinely appraised for more than a million dollars and do not come on the market as often as home buyers would like.
Everything about Ashley is charming. The winding streets are illuminated by old-fashioned street lamps, and the homeowners association fees ensure that the lush landscaping is always manicured to perfect condition. The lakefront homes at Ashley tend to get multiple bids and are sold very quickly.
Aside from its residential aesthetics, Ashley also offers home buyers plenty of convenience. The nearby Twin Lakes Park is a major family attraction, and the closest shopping district on Clark Road, which includes the Publix supermarket at Northridge Plaza, is just minutes away. Driving to Siesta Key Beach takes about 25 minutes.
