Museum Area

Where Art, History, and Nature Meet

Sarasota's Museum Area is a captivating blend of art, history, and natural beauty, making it one of the most alluring neighborhoods in the region. With its expressive architecture and deep historical significance, this area has become a magnet for patrons of the arts and history enthusiasts.

 

What truly sets the Museum Area apart is the diverse community that calls it home. From retirees to artists, writers, young professionals, and descendants of Sarasota's earliest settlers, the neighborhood is a melting pot of unique individuals. This diversity is mirrored in the eclectic selection of residences, ranging from stately homes overlooking Sarasota Bay to meticulously-maintained houses nestled along quiet streets. Mediterranean bayfront home or a more modest Florida bungalow, the Museum Area presents an array of architectural styles that cater to varied tastes. The neighborhood is ripe for new construction, offering underutilized homesites that are ideal for development or the renovation of existing properties. The architectural landscape is equally diverse, featuring a harmonious blend of modern and traditional styles that collectively paint an idyllic picture against the backdrop of towering trees and lush foliage. Public parks along the Bay enhance the area’s historic charm providing residents with serene spaces to unwind and connect with nature.

 

Formerly the stomping ground of John Ringling and his family, friends, and business associates, the Museum Area exudes an enchanting aura of historical significance.

 

Location: Situated in close proximity to esteemed institutions such as the Ringling Museum of Art, the Asolo Repertory Theatre, Sarasota Ballet, New College, the Ringling College of Art and Design, and the University of South Florida, the Museum Area offers a rich tapestry of cultural experiences. Tucked between downtown Sarasota and the Ringling Museum, generally West of the Trail.

 

Price Range: $300,000 - $15,000,000+
