Sarasota's beautiful West of Trail community is particularly desirable for its location alongside the water, convenient proximity to downtown, chic local shopping at Southside Village, and established elegance. A variety of architecture adds interest to the landscape and the tree-lined streets underscore the upscale, lived-in style of this enclave. As its name suggests, the West of Trail neighborhood lies west of Tamiami Trail, running from below downtown south toward access to Siesta Key. Since it is so close to the hospital, many of the residents are doctors or healthcare professionals connected to Sarasota Memorial. Apart from its good looks and location, West of Trail is highly appealing for families because of the great public school district. Southside Elementary is a big draw for families with young children.

Comfortable, beautiful, bikeable, walkable, with homes on and near the water, West of Trail is the place to plant family roots in Sarasota.
