Sarasota has many unique & wonderfully quirky things to- but the 2 that are extraordinary are Siesta Beach and the amount of Cultural Events taking place throughout the town. Siesta Beach is worth researching. You will find it commonly ranks #1 in the COUNTRY (VOTED #1 in USA)! The water is Caribbean Turquoise and the sand is (honestly) baby powder soft and white. The cultural events are huge. International Film Festival has grown to be a locals favorite event and brings in A-list movie stars and Directors. Sarasota Orchestra, Theatre, Play Houses, Opera, Artist Studios, Galleries, Lectures and Museums. The most famous is the Ringling Museum with it's waterfront mansion, art museum, courtyard and world famous miniature circus exhibit is great for the whole family-that's a must to checkout. The Van Wezel is Downtown on the water and holds premier engagements.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a younger retired couple in our 50's who live locally Sarasota. Since we reside in town, we are able to respond immediately to your needs, as well as offer you local advise. We can help you with anything from theater tickets to the best coffee shops! We have been to all the local hot spots and seen and done it all. We can advise you about area festivals.

Why the Owner Chose Laurel Park:
WE chose this location because we hope to live there some day. It's the best location in Sarasota to have an active, engaging lifestyle. Downtown and close to the waterfront Harbor is like a dream come true. We have found when you get out and walk a few blocks, you see so much more and feel connected to the area. We think it's ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy the city, as well as beaches. We like to quietness of the street and neighborhood. The charming Historic Cottages and Bungalows with towering oak trees and lush tropical neighborhood reminds me of Old FLorida 25 years ago....

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
LOCATION and Sarasota's Chic Key West Style Cottage! Walk 10 minutes in any direction and you will 100's of things to do. WALK TO: Waterfront Harbor with Chartered Fishing Boats, Boat rentals, O'Leary's Tiki Beach Bar, Marina Jack's Restuant (best place to watch sunset). Walk to 5 minutes to Main Street with: Movie theaters-20 screens Outdoor cafes Wine Bar Grocery store Restuarants Shopping Art Galleries Opera House Library Banks Towles Court Artist Colony Burns Court Movie theater, serving wine Too much to mention........
