Siesta Key, one of the barrier islands off Sarasota, Florida is a prized escape from the rush of the world's business. Within the recesses of its verdant jungle-y nature are any number of secluded, hidden neighborhoods, separated by lush natural landscape left to flourish or carefully planned and cultivated for privacy, security and beauty. Siesta Cove is one of these very special neighborhoods located on the bay side of the island with views of the mainland across Roberts Bay. Midnight Pass Road provides the major entrances leading the way into the evergreen, tropical foliage marked by Oaks, Pines and Palms standing watch overhead. Residents installed an abundance of uplighting in their personal landscape to enhance the neighborhood in the evening hours as well as the day.
The entire area consists of 84 parcels with two vacant lots and a third along the main road on the waterfront.California Contemporary dominates the architectural style dictated by mid 1970s to early 1980s construction. However, in the ensuing decades, homes have been razed and replaced with a variety of styles: Mediterranean, Florida Ranch, Key West and even Modern. With its close and valuable proximity to the water, luxury construction has overtaken the market in this area mimicking the ever-popular West of Trail area in look, character and price. You'll find Families, Professionals and Retirees here like most established Neighborhoods.
There is an HOA with very reasonable annual fees of $225. The association plans to upgrade the entrances, lighting, landscape, irrigation and signage. Glebe Park is nearbby with a picnic area, playground, baseball & soccer fields and hosts the Suncoast Sports Club.
Being just off Midnight Pass Road, Residents can bike to the Village, Out of Door Academy and Siesta Beach! It also connects easily to the North and South bridges on and off the key for access to the entire county.
Home sizes range from 1,500sf to over 6,000sf and past year's sales are valued at $410,000 to $1.975,000.
