Just a few blocks to the south of the downtown hub, Avondale Sarasota is a lush and picturesque “west of the trail” neighborhood that is highly sought after by home buyers.

The architecturally stunning Sarasota High School also flanks this quaint and charming neighborhood. Built at a time when Sarasota was experiencing the housing boom of the 1920s, the homes of Avondale reflect a variety of home styles of her day, with Spanish style homes being popular at the time. But you can also find the Florida Ranch homes, Craftsman-style bungalows, and Northern Colonial styles populating the area as well. Each of Avondal...

Avondale is a highly sought after neighborhood in Sarasota, Florida. It is located in the coveted "West of the Trail" area where so many people want to live. You will find a good mix of homes for sale in Avondale. This is old Sarasota so many of the structures were built in the 1950's and 1960's and either have been remodeled or in need of a remodel. Some of the older structures have been torn down to make way for newer homes. Residents in Avondale have the luxury of convenience. They can ride their bikes to the farmers market in downtown Sarasota on Saturday, walk their kids to Southside school, be on Siesta Key beach within minutes or enjoying a meal with friends or family on St. Armands Circle within a 5-10 minute car ride. Avondale truly is a great place to call home. View my Saras...
