Sarasota “West of the Trail” Neighborhood
Oyster Bay is a lush “West of the Trail” neighborhood on Sarasota Bay featuring classic “Old-Florida” bungalows and ranches as well as executive waterfront mansions on oversized lots. This older neighborhood has mature oak trees and lush landscaping that only time can provide.
Adjoining Oyster Bay, the prestigious Field Club is an asset to the neighborhood, providing its private membership with docking facilities, tennis courts and an active social calendar. Residents have convenient access from their Oyster Bay homes to all the arts and cultural amenities of downtown Sarasota plus the casual lifestyle of Siesta Key just across the bridge.
Some homes are directly on the Gulf while others are on deep water canals with no bridges to limit sailboat access to the Bay and the Gulf.
While some seek an already pristine home, others choose to buy and tear down an inexpensive home in this prestigious Sarasota neighborhood and build their dream home. Modest homes are priced in the $400,000 range while executive waterfront estates sell for as much as $5.0 million.
