Quality of life has always been an important aspect of residential development in Sarasota; building neighborhoods where families can be comfortable and prosperous is ingrained in Sarasota’s history. In the wake of World War II, local developers tapped into the zeitgeist of American prosperity as they sought to offer housing solutions that adhered to the principles of convenience, recreation and overall comfort.
Kensington Park in Sarasota laid the blueprint for future master-planned developments such as Palmer Ranch. The novelty Florida ranch style of residential architecture has been lovingly preserved over the decades; most properties have been remodeled a few times, and the entire subdivision is like a time capsule of American suburban life in the 1950s. Neighborly pride runs high among Kensington Park homeowners because they know that they are doing their part to preserve an important part of Florida history.
This subdivision has managed to remain affordable over the decades. A two-bedroom home built on a 9,147 square foot lot will offer about 947 square feet of interior and plenty of yard space for children to play; these listings start around $175K. Larger homes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms built on 1,560 square feet of living space may feature swimming pools and even more yard space. Long driveways, large patios and mature landscaping are the norm in this neighborhood; the local civic association recognizes the best-looking yards and routinely organizes community events.
Kensington Park is perfect for families; the Northeast Plaza shopping center is located on the south side of the subdivision, and this means easy access to three pizza restaurants: Hungry Howie’s, Papa John’s and Pizza Hut. A youth athletic complex and sports facility can be found a few blocks to the west, and this where the legendary Carl Ripken of the Baltimore Orioles runs a baseball camp; in fact, this is where the Orioles hold their spring training every year. Driving to Downtown Sarasota and the beaches takes between 20 and 25 minutes.
