Whitaker’s Landing


Despite its proximity to Downtown Sarasota, this desirable land on Sarasota Bay just south of Whitaker Bayou remained entirely undeveloped until late in the 20th century. In the 1990s, developer Frank Cameron Lambert built Whitaker’s Landing as the most private, high-end type of gated community. Lambert retained much of the neighborhood’s lush natural foliage many of the majestic oaks. He signed up BSB Design, the award-winning architectural firm, to create plush, extra-lavish, multi-story Island Bermuda and Mediterranean-style mansions.


Every one of the 12 homes at Whitaker’s Landing features patios, terraces, skylights, and balconies. These mansions are energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and breathtakingly beautiful. Every modern amenity is included; no detail is overlooked. Most of the homes sit on Whitaker’s Bayou and include private boat basins, while the several inland homes offer private dock space on the inlet. Beautiful majestic oaks and towering palms complement the rich beauty of Whitaker’s Landing.

For all its sublime natural beauty, Whitaker’s Landing is located just minutes from bustling downtown Sarasota, a city widely acclaimed for its many superlative shopping, dining, cultural, and recreational venues. The delightful barrier islands and sparkling Gulf beaches, including Siesta Beach, which has been in the top 10 Best Beaches list multiple times, are also only just minutes away, and a number of championship golf courses sit less a half hour from Whitaker’s Landing. The seclusion, convenience, and luxury you deserve might all be found at spectacular Whitaker’s Landing.
