One of the most stately neighborhoods in Southwest Florida is located south of the Hudson Bayou and west of the Tamiami Trail. Sarasota has a few historic neighborhoods, but residents will easily agree that Avondale is the most attractive.
Some of the homes at Avondale in Sarasota were developed in the the days after World War I, just around the time Sarasota experienced a wave of prosperity and economic growth. Even though many of the original properties have been demolished and replaced, Avondale neighbors have taken care of preserving the historic ambiance of this exclusive subdivision. When a homeowner decides to remodel or rebuild a property, the Avondale Residents Association convenes to make sure that the historic architectural style is preserved.
Avondale is the perfect Sarasota neighborhood for home buyers interested in Old Florida estates and mansions. Listings do not come on the market as often as most people would like; only three listings were available in early 2018, a Spanish Colonial mansion, a Mediterranean estate and a four-bedroom Old Florida home dating back to 1940. Due to the diversity of real estate in this small neighborhood, pricing varies widely; for example, the aforementioned Spanish Colonial mansion was listed at $1.49 million in late 2017, but we are talking about a four-bedroom villa built on more than 3,500 square feet for living space. This is a gorgeous home with a courtyard, a detached private guest suite, a summer kitchen, French doors all around, travertine flooring, smart home automation, and a meticulously landscaped lot that measures more than 10,000 square feet.
In terms of privacy and convenience, Avondale is perfect for home buyers who wish to raise families. This is a quiet and affluent neighborhood that is only blocks away from the commercial districts along the Tamiami Trail, so residents are never far from shops and restaurants. The arts and culture district of Downtown Sarasota is close enough for a bike ride, and driving to Siesta Key takes about 10 minutes.
