Sarasota’s West of Trail Neighborhoods

If you've ever been to Sarasota, you might have heard the phrase "West of Trail" to describe some of the best properties in the area, from Waterfront, 20s/30s Boom Construction to Mid-Century and Sarasota School of Architecture Icons! Zip Code 34239 covers a large geographic area stretching into Central County as far east as Beneva Road. See the wide variety of properties and neighborhoods


Many of the Neighborhoods now enjoy great transformation:

Old Florida Cottages restored amidst amazing new design construction; 

Mid-Century  icons re-configured to meet the Modern Family's Needs;

original Baum, Burns or Mizener Architecture side-by-side with

Aurora & Chrysalis Award-Winning compositions.

Sarasota is known for its Collective of Architects who formed the Sarasota School of Architecture.  It is generally considered to be comprised of Paul Rudolph, Tim Seibert, Ralph Twitchell, Victor Lundy, William Rupp and Jack West, with contemporary Architects such as Guy Peterson utilizing the Design Principles for new homes. The homes are lovingly furnished with Period Furniture and Art. When the homes sell, it is usually a private event (though several have been represented) as they are in high demand. To see the Interiors, watch for yearly Home Tours when several Homeowners are gracious enough to open their doors and invite the Public.
