Birds aren’t the only thing buzzing on Sarasota’s Bird Key; it’s the local real estate market. Bird Key situated just across the Ringling Bridge from downtown Sarasota offering a private community with a gate house attendant and homes both on and off the water. Since the key was originally developed in the 1960’s, after it was purchased from John Ringling in 1959, the houses on streets named, Pheasant Drive, Partridge Drive, Bob White Way, Bob White Drive, Meadow Lark Drive, Morning Dove Drive, Spoonbill Drive, and Royal Flamingo Drive are being renovated and updated. Many of the new renovations resemble the Mediterranean Revival Themes as was the trend during the 1920’s real estate boom. The Bird Key Yacht Club has just undergone a complete renovation.
The Bird Key Yacht Club offers social events, parties, tennis, golf, bridge,art exhibits, excursions or the wide variety of other activities. Members join for the "dining club" and a beautiful place to entertain their friends and keep their boats. The waterfront setting provides a perfect location for weddings, anniversaries, banquets and family events. Bird Key is a great location nestled between downtown Sarasota and St. Armand’s Circle and Lido Beach beyond. Homes on the water offer aspectacular view of the Sarasota Bay and the night lights of downtown Sarasota, while those off the water still enjoy the amenities of the area.
