West of Trail Neighborhoods in Sarasota Florida

If you clicked on this link, you are no doubt asking yourself “What is West of Trail real estate?” The “trail” refers one of Sarasota’s main North/South arteries, US 41. The road is also known as the Tamiami Trail, in lieu of the fact that it stretches from Tampa to Miami. This road runs very close to the coast, and thus those who live west of it live very close to the water, and all the amenities of Sarasota.

Homes west of trail are a very eclectic bunch indeed, ranging from small cottages to Bayfront mansions. Many of the homes are older, or have even earned historic designations. These homes have a special appeal to many as new construction saturates the Sarasota housing market. All types of architecture exist in this area, but the highly sought after “mediterranean” look is prevalent here. Close to the bridges to the Key, hospitals, and shopping, looking at West of Trail real estate just might be the inspiration you need!
