If you’re looking for a luxury waterfront home that is walking distance to beaches and offers a very walkable downtown area, then St. Armands is the only place you need to search. The heart of the area is St. Armands Circle which features over 100 shops, restaurants, and offices. You can see a map here.
Behind the circle are 1-2 blocks of single family homes surrounded by either Sarasota Bay or a canal leading to the bay. Walk to the west end of John Ringling Blvd just two blocks off the Circle and you are on the beach.
Lido Key is on the other side of the canal. Most of the single family homes on are the east (bayside) or center of Lido while condos line the beach front. There is a large public beach about mid key. Drive (or bike/walk) east on John Ringling Blvd across the Ringling Bridge and immediately arrive in downtown Sarasota.
Lido and St. Armands are in the center of everything. Go north over the New Pass Bridge to Longboat Key. Join the Longboat Key Club and have access to great golf and tennis facilities. If you are boater, there is also a 291 deep slip marina. Travel east across the Ringling Bridge and you have access to all of the shops, performing arts, movie theaters, restaurants, and marinas available in downtown Sarasota. All of this is within a short drive, bike ride, or even walk.
