Sapphire Shores


Come see why even Ringling himself chose this neighborhood!

When John Ringling moved to Sarasota after World War I, he fell in love with the growing city and decided to build his home, Cá d’Zan, directly in the Sapphire Shores neighborhood. Today, this is still one of Sarasota’s most highly sought after neighborhoods. Within walking distance of Ringling’s beloved home, Sapphire Shores offers a variety of homes including ideal family ranch-style houses, Mediterranean-style homes, and palatial mansions with amazing views of Sarasota Bay. If you are not looking for a “cookie-cutter” neighborhood, then this may be the place to consider purchasing your next home. Sapphire Shores welcomes anyone looking for an exquisite place to live. Within just minutes of the SRQ Airport and Ringling Museum of Art, this community offers a convenient location to anywhere in the city. Located in the Indian Beach neighborhood, school-age children can attend Emma E. Booker Elementary, Booker Middle School, or Booker High School.

The complex is also a short drive from Siesta Beach, continuously recognized around the world as one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the country. Another attraction located within minutes is Sarasota’s bustling and diverse downtown area. There, you will find endless shopping destinations and world-class eateries where you can purchase stylish clothing, sip gourmet coffee, and shop for books by your favorite authors or discover a new favorite artist at one of the exceptional art galleries. Also while there, you may choose to attend some of the fantastic theater venues including the Players Theatre, Sarasota Opera, and Florida Studio Theatre. This West of Trail community is right next to the artistic and educational hub of the city, just down the street from highly acclaimed academic gems including New College of Florida and The Ringling School of Art and Design.
