Homes West of the Trail, Sarasota Florida
West of the Trail are the Sarasota neighborhoods "west" of Hwy 41 or the Tamiami Trail. Morton's Plaza area continues to be the most popular community in this area since it is centrally located around the Morton's Plaza anchored by Morton's Gourmet Market.
Stroll to the Market from your home or lunch at the "new" Fred's Restaurant, Sam Sneed's and Knick's Tavern. Single-family homes are of mixed architectural styles in this Sarasota subdivision. Many old Florida homes and the properties are exquisite with tropical landscaping and huge banyan trees. Older homes are still being updated with designer touches in kitchens, bathrooms. New homes are replacing some of the older homes to make way for a new look for this Sarasota area. This beautiful community is a "must see" for location, location, location.
Tis the season for holiday lights and you will see unusual displays in this area as well as traditional adornment. Since we don't get much snow in our area, residents go all out for lighting display during the holidays. Shop or dine in this area from Thanksgiving through New Year's and enjoy the clever arrangements presented by the shops, restaurants, and be sure to stop by and have your hair done at Snuffy's favorite hairdresser, Salon Posh on Hillview. Ask for Laurie Tiner, owner, 941-350-0384 for appointments.
On weekends, Snuffy and I make time for a visit to Morton's, stroll through the quiet streets to view new Sarasota real estate, walk around the Plaza and indulge in yummy pastries or a warm cup of flavored coffee.
Evening dining at Knick's is Snuffy's favorite or Sam Snead's, both allow doggies on their patios. We respect their rules though. All West of the Trail restaurants, Hillview Grille, or Chutney's are often on our calendar.
Searching area 41 in the Sarasota MLS data, 144 homes are currently available for sale. Prices range from $236,050 to over $11 million to enjoy this Sarasota lifestyle.
