Few cities can offer as much variety as you’ll find in Sarasota real estate. From the beach to country living to downtown sophistication, it’s all here, with many premium properties priced well under a million. Let’s take a look at some homes currently on the market that showcase the wide diversity, all in the $750,000 range.
Sarasota | $759,000
1845 Goldenrod St.
Here’s a renovated 1950s cottage that pretty much defines the essence of West of Trail charm. It has three bedrooms and two baths—plus a den—in 2,358 square feet, and features many original touches: wood floors, built-ins, arches, cove ceilings and an old-fashioned front porch complete with swing. The kitchen and baths have been updated with a coastal feeling and a large family room faces the pool. The location—midway between downtown and Siesta Key—is ideal, and it’s within walking distance of Southside School. Listed by Ryan Carson of Re/Max Alliance. (941) 685-2879
Venice | $749,000
633 Alhambra Road #301
This right-on-the-beach condo is located in the nicest part of the Island of Venice. An end unit, it features two balconies and spectacular views of the Gulf. There are two bedrooms and two baths, in a good-sized 1,430 square feet. The high-rise building dates back to 1970 but has been beautifully maintained, and everything is move-in ready. There’s a pool right on the beach, and the peaceful, tucked-away neighborhood is great for walking and bike riding. Downtown shopping is five minutes away.

Bradenton | $750,000
10416 Spoonbill Road W.
Flamingo Key is just two miles from Anna Maria. It’s a small boating community intersected by saltwater canals, and this home—four bedrooms, three baths, 2,812 square feet—is one of its nicest. It was completely renovated and enlarged in 2003 and has a beachy, vacation feel with lots of room for entertaining. The two-story living room has a double-sided fireplace and the outdoor area features an infinity-edge pool and a complete outdoor kitchen. There’s a dock and boatlift, plus easy access to Palma Sola Bay and the Gulf. Listed by Gina Uliano of Wagner Realty. (941) 202-5247
