This breathtaking, 12-acre island is considered one of the most prestigious residential communities of the west coast of Florida. The key was first built in 1914 by David Lindsey Worcester. The ‘manor’ he built was meant as a gift for his wife, and many referred to it as ‘A Labor of Love’. Later, in 1959, the island was sold to a company named Arvida Realty Inc, who planned and constructed 291 water front properties and 220 off water sites. With million dollar views and an exquisite mix of architecture, this neighborhood is known as the “Jewel of Sarasota Bay” and the most luxurious place to live. As one of the barrier islands nestled along the coast of Sarasota, Bird Key is a true boater’s paradise with deep canals, stunning unforgettable sunset views and plentiful sea life. Residence of this elite community also enjoy access to the Bird Key Yacht Club. Let us help you find your new home here.
