If you are looking for a Sarasota neighborhood that combines character, luxury, waterfront views, and easy boating access to the Intracoastal Waterway, Roberts Point in Siesta Key should be at the top of your house hunting list. Located just south of the Bay Isle district of Siesta Key, Roberts Point is a hidden residential enclave where imposing mansions sit right in front of Roberts Bay and the Coconut Bayou.
This exclusive neighborhood has a distinctive history dating back to the early 20th century, when it was the site of an upscale hotel frequented by Hollywood royalty; this was prior to the construction of the Siesta Key North Bridge, and the only way to get to Roberts Point was by ferry. These days, residents are able to dock their yachts right at their backyards and sail around the Sarasota Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, and beyond.
Adding to the character and charm of this community is the fine architectural diversity. A few Old Florida cottages have been carefully maintained for the purpose of preserving their historical importance, but most of the waterfront mansions are built in the Mediterranean, Spanish Colonial, Key West, Caribbean, American Coastal, and Contemporary styles. The mature trees and lush tropical landscaping are just as spectacular as the real estate; plus, they bolster the privacy of the small peninsula.
The most recent sale in Roberts Point was a $3 million estate with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and more than 5,600 square feet of interior. More impressive listings that include boathouses, large fishing piers, swimming pools with sundecks, and water views from just about every window usually come on the market for $5 million, and they sell faster than many people would venture to guess. As the most desirable neighborhood in Siesta Key, Roberts Point tends to attract many buyers willing to participate in bidding wars.
Roberts Point feels secluded, but it is actually very conveniently located seven minutes away from supermarkets such as Publix, Aldi, and Trader Joe’s. The famous white sands of Siesta Key Beach are just a few blocks away, and driving to the arts and culture district of Downtown Sarasota will take you less than 15 minutes.
