South Gate

Mid-Century Charm for Modern Living

One of the older suburbs of Sarasota, South Gate was founded in the 1960s. The retro style of the homes as well as the fact that it is extremely well-maintained for an older neighborhood attract buyers from all corners of the globe, and its close proximity to beaches and downtown make it a desirable place to live for many Sarasotans. Covering over 2 square miles now, the neighborhood has grown and expanded over its 50+ years.

Nestled in the tucks and turns of Phillippi Creek, many homes in South Gate sit on the water, either on a small tributary or on the Creek itself, which has access to the open waters of Sarasota Bay. If you are seeking to escape the cookie-cutter feel of pre-fab new construction, and you appreciate the subtlety and character of a neighborhood aged like fine wine, then I believe you’ll find that South Gate fits the bill.

The South Gate Community Center

South Gate is governed by an optional HOA, which provides enough funds to maintain the beautiful Sarasota School of Architecture building, the South Gate Community Center, which was designed by architect Victor Lundy.

Located right in the heart of South Gate on the traffic circle at Siesta Drive, the community center offers a beautiful community pool, available to all residents for a minimal fee, as well as a serene space for parties, weddings, and other social gatherings. The historic mid-century building’s glass walls allow beautiful Phillippi Creek to be the background to any event.

The South Gate Community Center has been a staple of this cozy community since its opening on September 2, 1955 and has been designated as historic by Sarasota County.

Location: Bordered by Tamiami Trail to the west, Arlington Park to the north, Beneva Road to the east, and Bee Ridge to the south, one can quickly note the easy access to downtown and a plethora of shops, restaurants, and other amenities.

Price Range: $150,000 - $1,000,000+
