Our Picks for Sarasota Sporting Neighborhoods

Sarasota itself is a wonderful place for those leading "the sporting life."  With our weather, we're able to be outside and active year-round, and so many communities have gone out of their way to build that into their neighborhood's signature way of life.  If you need help finding the perfect neighborhood to satisfy your lifestyle needs, let us help you! 

We've got homes listed in two fabulous neighborhoods that support the sporting life.  Have a look...

The Meadows

Residents of the Meadows enjoy the three 18-hole championship golf courses, 14 miles of sidewalks and bike trails, a 1.7-mile fitness loop and 5,000 square foot fitness center to satisfy their active lifestyle.  If you want access to it all, have a look at our featured listing in The Meadows, 4305 Highland Oaks Circle!

Mote Ranch

This off-the-beaten path neighborhood is not as well known as its nearby contemporaries in and around North Sarasota, but it's proximity to the entertainment of Lakewood Ranch Main Street, the new shopping mecca of University Town Center, as well as Braden River & Ward Lake make it the perfect location for those who desire a quiet community with ample access to everything else!  The launch right from the neighborhood community area (which also includes a community center, pool, nature trail, and playground!) means easy access for kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards heading down the Braden River.  Check out our listing in Mote Ranch, 6520 Grand Point Avenue!
