Bay Acres



Located just west of Tamiami Trail in the small town of Osprey, Bay Acres provides waterfront access set away from the hustle-and-bustle of Sarasota. While providing a quiet, relaxing lifestyle, this community still provides unlimited access to endless opportunities for shopping, dining, and recreation. This property also provides the freedom of no deed restrictions. Sometimes, you might encounter a vast array of wildlife in your own backyard, including adorable foxes that wander the area.

Located near some of Sarasota County’s best schools, school-age residents can attend Laurel Nokomis Elementary, Laurel Nokomis Middle, Venice Senior High, and Pine View School. Pine View is one of the best schools in the area, celebrated for its college-preparatory program and renowned emphasis on academics. Another great feature of this property is the opportunity to rent a boat slip with access to the boat basin and Intracoastal Waterway for a reasonable per annum fee. But, hurry up and reserve your boat slip because they go fast! Another great aspect of living in Bay Acres in Osprey is the proximity to all the amenities of both Sarasota and Venice, allowing residents easy access to all the shopping, dining, and cultural destinations in both cities.

Some great recreational activities nearby include Oscar Scherer State Park and the Legacy Trail. Oscar Scherer Park is an outdoor destination where visitors can enjoy 15 miles of nature trails where they can bike and hike while taking in the scenic views and native wildlife. If you love to kayak or canoe, make sure to pack yours for the trip and launch your kayak or canoe into the magnificent black water stream. This park is home to the Scrub Jay, a threatened species rarely found outside of Florida. Another great attraction is the Legacy Trail where you can explore over ten miles of biking terrain. This acreage maintains the natural beauty of Florida’s wildlife, making this destination a great location to view wildlife and enjoy the rigor of biking. At Bay Acres, you are also just around the corner from Historic Spanish Point, an historical site that offers the opportunity to look back into the life of Sarasota’s early pioneers.

While there are a lot of outdoor activities to engage in, Bay Acres is only a short drive from Sarasota’s exciting downtown! There, sightseers can enjoy the gorgeous architecture, unique shopping boutiques, marvelous restaurants, and cultural gems like the Ringling Museum of Art and the Florida Studio Theatre.
